There have been rumblings about Kraken’s aspirations to go public for the last few years. The firm has been busy dealing with accusations brought last year by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that it operated an unregistered platform and improperly mixed customer funds.

A spokeswoman declined to comment on the raise but said, “We are always exploring strategic paths towards Kraken’s Mission: accelerating the global adoption of crypto. We remain fully focused on investing in this goal.”
