Kraken has been receiving an increasing amount of requests from law enforcement during the past year. There has been an increase of 49% of legality requests for 2019, and the exchange has been tested for illegal uses.

Kraken issued the latest data in its annual compliance report stating “It's that time again. Here's a snapshot of our Compliance team's 2019 Transparency Report. Team America still ahead with 61% of total requests, down from 66% last year. Other geos gaining fast. Trend is obvious. Costs are increasing, even in a relatively flat market.”
