Kraken Notifier

http://i.imgur.com/SVbAY7U.jpg

Hi everyone,

kraken.com sadly doesn't offer notifications when your deposits arrive or a trade gets executed. I created Kraken Notifier to offer this important service until they are going to implement this feature in kraken.com.

All you need to setup a notification is an api key with the sole permission "Query Funds".

If you don't want to give your API key away just grab a copy at https://github.com/trapp/krakennotifier and run your own instance. It's completely open source.

Check it out: https://krakennotifier.zaeda.net

What do you think?

Generally speaking, it's great that people want to offer third party services related to our exchange. However, such services are used entirely at your own risk. It's up to you to do your own due diligence to ensure the service is safe to use. Another thing to keep in mind is that when you use any Kraken-related third party service, it's best not to use the same email that's associated with your Kraken account, since your Kraken email is a potential point of attack for your account. Of course, you also don't want to use the same username, password, etc. Whenever you use a third party service, you shouldn't give the third party any information that might be used to discover or gain access to your Kraken account.

Thanks for your feedback Dargo.

To mitigate any risk users are encouraged to

  • Use another email address (as Dargo mentioned).
  • Make sure the API key has only one permission "Query funds", nothing else.
