Cómo comprar XMR en Kraken
Verify your account
The easiest way to get started might be to purchase XMR with a currency you already own (like USD or EUR). However, in this case, you’ll need to provide supporting documents verifying your identity and linking external accounts. For more details about our onboarding process, check out our verification levels documentation.
You can also buy XMR with other cryptocurrencies like bitcoins or litecoins by providing your full name, date of birth, country of residence and phone number.
Deposit crypto or cash
For purchases with cash, we offer a variety of funding methods depending on where you live and your account preferences. (Before getting started, browse through our support documents to find the best option for you.)

Where to keep your XMR
Monero may be private by default, but that doesn’t automatically make it secure. This means that once you’re done buying XMR, you’ll need to take steps to secure your funds.
The best way to do this is with a Monero wallet, which will allow you to send, receive and store your XMR. There are many types of wallets you can choose from to secure your XMR. The option you select will depend on your security and spending preferences.
Kraken is not a wallet service
However, we should remind you that Kraken is an exchange service and not a wallet service. (Note: We do use Monero’s subaddress format, which has fast become the favored format in the Monero community for its privacy advantages.)
So, while we allow clients to hold funds on our exchange, we recommend you secure your holdings into more than one wallet. After all, it’s never good to keep all of your eggs in one basket, even one protected by the mighty Kraken!
