According to the announcement, Kraken will release the two new assets for trading today at 1:00 pm UTC. The initial trading pairs for both will be USD, EUR, CAD, XBT and ETH. Kraken notes that margin trading will not be available at launch for ADA or QTUM, but says that it very well could be implemented in the future.
Both altcoins have gained significant listing momentum in recent weeks.
ADA was recently listed on Abra, an all-in-one mobile cryptocurrency wallet and trading platform, in addition to gaining a direct USD trading pair on Bittrex, the 36th largest crypto exchange by trading volume at the time of writing.
