Where to keep your EWT
Once you buy EWT, you’ll need somewhere to safely store your cryptocurrency.
Kraken is secure, but it’s always safest to store your EWT 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 EWT wallets. 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 EWT, 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 EWT in their accounts, we highly encourage you to separate your EWT holdings into multiple wallets.
