原本Kraken是透過日本的銀行做國際匯兌，但是現在日本的銀行變更服務項目，未來只服務日本本國居民。Kraken未來會停止USD, GBP, EUR, JPY等幣的銀行入金服務，直到與新的銀行夥伴簽訂完合約為止。
對於台灣人來說，最近要匯款入金USD的話要多注意，款項一定要在3/20 11:59 pm之前完成。未來新的USD入金方式，會在Kraken上面公布。

If you use our bank partner in Japan to fund your Kraken account for EUR, GBP, JPY or USD, please read this important notice. If you instead use one of our many other funding options, such as EUR SEPA payments (available in all SEPA-zone countries) or domestic USD transfers (available in most US states), or CAD (in Canada), you can safely disregard this notice.
If you use our bank partner in Japan to fund your Kraken account with anything but CAD, your funding instructions will be changing soon - please check your account on March 21 for the new funding instructions. Deposits sent using the old instructions must arrive no later than 11:59 pm on March 20 Japan time (deposits arriving after this time will be returned). The new instructions will appear in your account on March 21 and will include new bank account details for sending deposits - please confirm that the bank account details have changed before sending new deposits on or after March 21.
Why the change?
Currently one of our banking partners in Japan services clients who reside both inside and outside Japan. Due to the strain placed on the bank by our recent exponential growth, this banking partner needs to narrow the scope of supported clients to maintain good quality of service. As of March 21 this banking partner will only service residents of Japan. Japan residents will send deposits to a different account at the same bank. Clients outside Japan will use a new bank. The new bank integration is still being finalized and this process may not be completed by March 21. Clients residing outside Japan who fund their accounts through Japan should be aware of a possible interruption in service starting March 21 (more on this below).
Does this mean one of Kraken’s bank accounts is being closed?
No bank accounts are being closed. If you previously received an email from us talking about bank accounts closing, please disregard it since the language is inaccurate and misleading.
If you reside in Japan and fund through our Japan bank partner
Your service will continue without interruption
Make sure any deposits using the old instructions arrive no later than 11:59 pm on March 20 Japan time
Make sure you start using the new deposit instructions that will be made available in your account on March 21
You can continue to fund your account with JPY (domestic transfers)
You can continue to fund your account with USD, EUR, or GBP (international SWIFT transfers)
If you reside outside Japan and fund through our Japan bank partner with anything but CAD
We are working on a replacement option for you so that you can continue to fund your account with JPY, USD, EUR and GBP transfers after March 20
The replacement integration is not finalized yet, meaning that there could be an interruption in service before the replacement option is ready
You can continue to make deposits through our Japan bank partner until 11:59 pm on March 20 Japan time
You can continue to withdraw through our Japan bank partner until 12:00 pm on March 27 Japan time
If the replacement integration is not ready by March 21, we will contact you with another announcement, and you will have the option to withdraw your funds until 12:00 pm on March 27 Japan time if you are concerned about the possible interruption in service
We want to emphasize again that no bank accounts are being closed. The story here is only about one of our many banking partners needing to narrow the scope of clients they serve to maintain good quality of service. The majority of Kraken clients, who use one of our many other funding options, are entirely unaffected by this change. We currently have a team devoted to cultivating new bank partnerships and expect to start seeing the fruits of this effort soon with new bank funding options coming online. For our clients residing outside Japan who have been using our bank partner in Japan, we expect to announce a replacement option for you soon, and will let you know if there will be any interruption in service.
