    What are peoples experiences with Kraken for trading? Ive only used it for EUR>BTC in the past.

    Poloniex is freezing all the time these days to the point of you cant trust it to open a margin trade on there.

    Is kraken having the same issues lately? I need to get my balance off poloniex to somewhere else.

    The high traffic are causing them the delays it's pretty normal for a site to be in such behavior(Poloniex). Never used Kraken so I could be wrong.

    High traffics one thing but this has been an issue for months on and off. Why is it that they cant just scale up the servers? Maybe they are not as liquid as they claim?

    DDoS attacks, connectivity issues, high traffic(probably due to BTC went up high again). It's all posted in their twitter: https://twitter.com/poloniex

    I have used both Kraken and Poloniex extensively. I only use Polo these days because both the interface & trading volume is so much better than Kraken's. But yes, a lot of DDOS and traffic spikes lately.
