Where to keep your tBTC


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

Kraken is secure, but it’s always safest to store your tBTC 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 tBTC wallets available. Mobile and web wallets make transactions easy, while hardware wallets are perhaps best suited for secure, long-term storage. 

When choosing a wallet for your tBTC, 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 tBTC in their accounts, we highly encourage you to separate your tBTC holdings into multiple wallets.
