Cómo comprar Kusama (KSM)

Looking to test your application or blockchain before deploying it to the Polkadot network? If yes, KSM, the crypto asset that powers Kusama, may be a compelling addition to your portfolio.


Intended to serve as a pre-production version of the Polkadot blockchain, Kusama aims to give developers increased flexibility while they finalize and test new technologies. 

This means that, on Kusama, developers can build and deploy custom Polkadot blockchains while testing how they might work using the network’s governance and functionality. 

Not sure yet why you’d want to buy KSM? Feel free to read our ‘What is Kusama?’ guide, which offers a more extensive breakdown of its technology and vision.

Dónde mantener sus KSM


Once you buy KSM, you’ll need somewhere to safely store your cryptocurrency. 

Kraken is secure, but it’s always safest to store your KSM in a wallet, a software or hardware device that stores the public and private keys required to make crypto transactions.

There are many types of KSM wallets. Mobile and web wallets can make transactions easy, while hardware wallets are perhaps best suited for secure, long-term storage. 


Kraken is not a wallet service

Es importante tener en cuenta que Kraken es un servicio de exchange y no un servicio de monedero. Si bien permitimos que nuestros clientes mantengan KSM en sus cuentas, le recomendamos encarecidamente que separe sus tenencias de KSM en varias carteras.
