How to buy GNO (Gnosis)
The world of decentralized prediction markets is here today, but to use the technology to its full potential, you may need to buy GNO.
One of two cryptocurrencies that powers the Gnosis prediction market platform, GNO enables users to launch custom markets where they can wager on the outcome of future events.
By buying GNO, you’ll be able to purchase OWL, the cryptocurrency used to pay fees needed to create new markets on Gnosis. If you buy GNO, you’ll also have the opportunity to stake GNO and generate new OWL in exchange for helping operate the platform.
If this all sounds a bit complicated, we’ve put together a more extensive introductory guide that explains the inner-workings of the platform’s technology and the vision of its founding team.

Why buy GNO?
The GNO cryptocurrency is an integral part of the Gnosis prediction market platform, as users can only trade GNO for OWL, which is needed to create new markets and place wagers.
But, you may want to consider buy GNO even if you’re not an active user.
You may want to buy GNO if you want to
- Create your own prediction markets
- Diversify your long-term investment strategy
- Earn OWL and pay fees on the Gnosis platform
- Invest in Ethereum-based projects and tokens
- Wager on the outcome of future events.
Where can I buy GNO?
There are a number of different places where you can buy GNO. However, you may find that it is easiest to purchase this asset through a trusted global exchange like Kraken.
Kraken offers a wide selection of crypto assets and traditional currencies, with over 100 trading pairs. This means whether you want to sell USD or sell BTC for GNO, we can provide a robust and active global market with deep liquidity.
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 GNO can I buy?
Don’t have a lot of spending power? You don’t have to buy an entire GNO.
Like most cryptocurrencies, GNO is divisible into smaller units. In fact, on Kraken, you can purchase as little as 0.02 GNO, meaning you can buy GNO on any budget.
Kraken can handle larger orders as well. For instance, it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary for larger traders to trade 5,000 GNO or more on Kraken in a single order.

Where to keep your GNO
Once you buy GNO, you’ll need somewhere to safely store your cryptocurrency.
Kraken is secure, but it’s always safest to store your GNO 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 GNO wallets available. Mobile and web wallets can make transactions easy, while hardware and paper wallets are perhaps best suited for secure, long-term storage.
When choosing a crypto wallet for your GNO, 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 GNO in their accounts, we highly encourage you to separate any tokens you own into multiple wallets.
