Top 3 Centralized Exchanges on Kava

The Kava Layer 1 chain is active in DeFi. It has a prominent role in the Cosmos ecosystem and its IBC. Nonetheless, you can buy the KAVA token on plenty of centralized exchanges (CEXs). It shows how successful the Kava chain is.

So, let’s dive into the top centralized exchanges on Kava.


Binance is currently, by far, the biggest centralized exchange in the world. It has a daily volume of $9.225 billion. That’s almost eight times as much as #2 Coinbase. Binance also has 74 million monthly visitors. That’s almost twice as many as Coinbase. In other words, Binance is a dominant factor in the crypto space. US residents don’t have access to Binance. Luckily, US residents do have access to Binance US. 

Another nice feature is that Binance shows their Proof of Reserves. Currently, Binance offers 359 coins and 1,421 trading pairs. It also offers a wide range of other features. For example:

  • Future and perpetual trading
  • Various staking options
  • Margin trading
  • A launchpad
  • Dual investment
  • Auto-invest
  • ETH staking

For KAVA, it offers up to 24.9% on staking if you lock your KAVA up for 120 days. There are also 90-, 60-, and 30-day options. The rewards are, respectively, 16.9%, 14.9%, and 12.98%.

So, it’s a diverse CEX that gives you plenty of options. However, having said that, their wallets are custodial. You are not in charge of the private keys. Do you remember this phrase? Not your keys, not your money! That counts for almost all CEXs though, not only for Binance.

Binance also has its native token, BNB. If you pay transaction fees with BNB, you receive a discounted fee. According to market cap, BNB takes fourth spot of all cryptocurrencies. Another sign of a successful centralized exchange. The picture below shows the CEX ranking by daily volume.

The Kraken centralized exchange comes in at spot #12 by daily volume. Unfortunately, Kraken doesn’t show its Proof of Reserves. On daily volume, it reaches $575 million. This exchange currently sees around 5.99 million monthly visitors. Good news for US residents, though, as that Kraken is available to US residents. However, not when you live in New York or Washington. Their headquarters is in San Francisco, California.

Kraken offers 220 coins and 650 trading pairs. Here are some other features that Kraken offers, for instance:

  • Staking
  • Margin trading
  • Futures
  • OTC or over the counter
  • NFTs
  • Futures

For KAVA, Kraken offers an earn option by staking KAVA. Rewards are between 5%-15% APY.

The exchange also offers a Pro version. This is more down the alley for advanced traders. It gives, for instance, access to:

  • Margin trading
  • Next-level charting tools
  • Advanced order types

However, if you don’t need these advanced features, Kraken is good as it is. It offers an easy-to-use, straightforward trading experience and platform. The picture below shows the KAVA earn option on Kraken.

It offers no less than 1,628 coins and 2,272 trading pairs. That’s more than Binance and Kraken combined. Their headquarters is in the Seychelles. The exchange is available to US residents.

Here are some features that MEXC Global offers. For example:

  • Leveraged ETFs
  • Launchpad
  • Kickstarter
  • Savings/earning
  • Futures and perpetuals
