How to Sell BAT (Basic Attention Token)
Once you’re using the Brave browser, you’ll have no shortage of opportunities to view ads and earn Basic Attention Token (BAT) you can share with your favorite content creators.
But you don’t always have to be so generous with the BAT you receive. There may be instances where it makes sense for your wallet to sell BAT for cash or another cryptocurrency.
If so, a global exchange like Kraken can be an ideal venue for selling BAT given our robust tools and deep liquidity. Remember, BAT trades on a global market. So, depending on when you decide to sell BAT, buyers may offer higher or lower prices.
Please note, if you’ve been storing your BAT in a wallet you control, you may also need to buy ether. As BAT runs on Ethereum, sending BAT to an exchange requires costs be paid to its network. (For more on how this works, visit or ‘What is Ethereum?’ guide).
Kraken offers a wide range of charting and trading tools, too, so if you’re looking to sell BAT at the best possible price, we’re confident our features can help get the job done.

If instead you want to sell BAT for a fiat currency (like GBP or EUR), you’ll need to send us additional identification and proof-of-residence documents. Learn more about our different verification levels here.
After the funds are successfully received by your account, you can begin selling BAT on Kraken. (Note: BAT is a token on the Ethereum blockchain, so it may take some time for transactions to confirm before you can trade).
