Rise through the ranks with our new Futures Leaderboard

Kraken Futures

Welcome to a new chapter in competitive trading at Kraken Pro! We’re excited to roll out our Futures Leaderboard, a fresh community feature ranking our most skilled futures traders. Leaderboard is evidence of your strategy, skill and trading success.

Whether your gains are from going long or selling short, everyone can ascend the Leaderboard by executing and optimizing a winning strategy.

Prove your Futures Leaderboard rank on social media with our shareable Performance Card, and let others know how you’re nailing it in the market:

Your Leaderboard ranking is determined based on your profit percentage (PnL%) over a 7-day rolling calculation period. It refreshes on an ongoing basis to provide you with near-real-time rankings of all traders in our futures market.
