Whether Kraken agrees with me or not, Kraken has decided to increase its computing capacity to accommodate more action quickly.
They’ve identified areas using much more computing capacity than their standard ‘bread and butter’ trades and are eliminating those areas to quickly increase computing capacity by temporarily eliminating the lesser used functions that did use much more capacity.
They haven’t eliminated trading in the cryptos they listed, just said you have to trade ETH or BTC for them instead of fiat currency.
As for the advanced order functions, I’ve never used them in a year+ of trading.
P.S. If you’re in the Venice Florida area, come join our Bitcoin meetup on Saturday, August 26 at the Jacaranda Public Library from 3 to 4 pm!
There is a possible change coming to Bitcoin around August 1. After this time, the price will most probably go up on Bitcoin and the other cryptocurrencies as well. However, if the change occurs, people with Bitcoin on Coinbase.com or GDAX.com may find that they are not able to profit from a second coin that others will get for free.
So, to be safe, by Friday, July 28, 2017, move any Bitcoin you have on Coinbase.com or GDAX.com to Kraken.com or to a blockchain.info wallet.
ALSO, do not trade, send or withdraw any Bitcoin from July 31 to August 3.

Many thanks to Marlene Rose Gallery in downtown Clearwater for a beautiful venue for last night’s seminar on Bitcoin. People enjoyed the venue as much as the easy manner that Peter conveyed a technical subject in understandable bites.
“Very Well explained. I learned enough to really want to get started.” said Neal F.
Anita D. stated “I had never heard of this concept and it makes sense. I am interested in knowing more about it. I am curious now in this evolution in currency. I am glad I made the time to come and listen to it, it was interesting and simple.”
David A said “Finally I understand what a bitcoin is and it’s source and mining.”
Several pre-purchased the book at the event, and more said they would come to www.bitcoin-secrets.com to purchase it online, as well as post any further questions in the forum there.
