Trading via Kraken App and Instant Buy will be available once the liquidity conditions are met (when a sufficient number of buyers and sellers have entered the market for their orders to be efficiently matched).
Here’s what you need to know about the tokens:
PayPal USD (PYUSD) is a stablecoin with a value pegged to the U.S. dollar. According to PayPal, PYUSD is collaterized by USD deposits, short-term U.S. treasuries and similar assets. This collateral aims to maintain the stablecoin’s peg to the USD, regardless of cryptocurrency market fluctuations. Users can utilize PYUSD for various functions such as transferring between PayPal and external wallets, person-to-person payments, funding purchases and converting among PayPal-supported cryptocurrencies.

Will Kraken make more assets available?
Yes! But our policy is to never reveal any details until shortly before launch – including which assets we are considering. All of Kraken’s available tokens can be found here, and all future tokens will be announced on Kraken’s blog and social media profiles. Our client engagement specialists cannot answer any questions about which assets we may be making available in the future.
