Kraken has issued a warning to margin traders in its official Bitcoin Cash statement, saying they should prepare for “extreme volatility.”

Joining the list of exchanges set to interact with the BCC fork and credit user accounts with equal amounts of BTC and BCC, Kraken nonetheless advised considerable caution during the forking process itself.

“[...M]argin traders should plan for the possibility of extreme volatility and unfavorable forced liquidations surrounding the fork,” it wrote yesterday.

Kraken’s midway position contrasts sharply with fellow major US exchange Coinbase, which at the same time said it would not interact in any way with BCC should it come into being Aug. 1.
