Exchange Spreads for Bitcoin Narrow but Gaps Remain
As the exchange makes progress toward providing customers with the ability to make deposits and withdrawals, the spread between bitcoin prices on its order books and the various international exchanges has been on the decline.
The spreads were also very similar between the exchange and its US counterparts GDAX and Gemini.
But while spreads were similar on the aforementioned exchanges, they varied quite a bit on other marketplaces.
The price of bitcoin was very similar on Bitfinex and Poloniex, but it was roughly $30 lower on Kraken.
The exchange announced in April that it was having problems involving outbound USD wires and incoming wire transfers.
