Where to keep your ANT
Once you buy ANT, you’ll need somewhere to safely store your cryptocurrency.
Kraken is secure, but it’s always safest to keep your ANT in a wallet, a software or hardware device that stores the public and private keys required to make crypto transactions.
Aragon is a platform built on top of Ethereum, meaning ANT can be stored in an Ethereum wallet, of which there are many. Mobile and web wallets can make transactions easy, while hardware wallets are perhaps best suited for secure, long-term storage.
When choosing a crypto wallet for your ANT, first spend some time thinking about what you plan to do with your tokens to find a wallet that fits your needs.
Kraken is not a wallet service
It is important to note that Kraken is an exchange service and not a wallet service. So while we allow our clients to hold ANT in their accounts, we highly encourage you to separate your ANT holdings into multiple wallets.
