Kraken Plans to go Public
Following in Coinbase's footsteps, Kraken has confirmed its plans to go public. Coinbase announced in early 2021 that they intended to list on the stock exchange under the ticker COIN. The CEO of Kraken, a competing cryptocurrency exchange, revealed in an interview that the company is "looking at being able to go public sometime next year," with next year being 2022. Powell also stated that Kraken has been delaying seeking new investors so that they can "see where the Coinbase valuation comes in at." Should Coinbase receive a multi-billion dollar valuation through their public listing, it will indicate to Kraken that they could run a new funding round to increase their valuation to reach similar levels. >>Source
