How to Buy Tezos (XTZ)

Ang Tezos ay nagsimula noong 2014 upang gumawa nang tinatawag na “self-amending blockchain.”


Complex in implementation, the core idea was simple: Tezos would allow anyone who owned its XTZ cryptocurrency to vote on possible changes to its rules, and once decided, the code would automatically update to ensure the changes were made. 

Today, that vision is coming closer to reality. Developers can use the Tezos blockchain to design new kinds of applications and users can stake XTZ to participate in voting. In both cases, you’ll need to first buy XTZ to take advantage of these features. 

Once you buy on Kraken, however, you can also begin earning additional tokens by staking XTZ in our staking service. We offer a fixed 6% return to all customers who elect to let Kraken stake XTZ on their behalf, but you can choose to buy XTZ on Kraken and stake yourself.

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

There are a number of ways to buy XTZ. However, many find that it is easiest to purchase it through a trusted global exchange like Kraken. 

Aside from offering the lowest fees in the industry, Kraken is constantly rated one of the most secure and trusted crypto exchanges in the world. This matters because if you lose the private key to your XTZ, it can be challenging if not impossible to recover your funds. 
 

At Kraken, we take security seriously, with tested technology and rigorous procedures designed to safeguard funds. We don’t cut corners when it comes to security, and neither should you.


How much XTZ can I buy?

Looking to buy XTZ on a budget? Don’t worry, Kraken offers a minimum order size of 3 XTZ to help you gain exposure to a variety of assets.

Of course, you can also execute larger XTZ buy orders as well. It wouldn’t be out of the ordinary for larger traders to purchase or trade 5,000 XTZ or more on Kraken.

Where to keep your XTZ


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

Kraken is secure, but it’s always safest to store your XTZ 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 XTZ wallets available. 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 XTZ, first spend some time thinking about what you plan to do with your tokens to find a wallet that fits your needs.

However, remember, clients who bake XTZ with Kraken will receive a 6% annual return, paid out twice weekly. In this case, you’ll be trusting Kraken to hold and bake your funds, however, you’ll have the ability to quickly unfreeze your funds to begin trading quickly.


Kraken is not a wallet service

Mahalagang tandaan na ang Kraken ay isang exchange service at hindi isang wallet service. Kung kaya't maski pinapahintulutan namin ang mga kliyente na maghawak ng XTZ sa kanilang mga account, lubos naming hinihikayat na ihiwalay ang iyong XTZ holdings sa maramihang wallet.
