Why sell COMP?

Depending on your risk tolerance and investment allocations, you may also find it advantageous to sell COMP for other cryptocurrencies or cash. 

You might sell COMP if you want to:

  • Adjust your long-term crypto strategy
  • Avoid losses in times of sudden price movements
  • Capture gains from lending cryptocurrency
  • Exchange COMP for other crypto or cash
  • Reduce your portfolio’s exposure to lending platforms.


How to sell COMP on Kraken

If you’re ready to go ahead and sell COMP, follow these simple steps below:

  1. Sign up for a Kraken account.
    You just need an email address, username and a strong password.

  2. Verify your account.
    All you need is your name, birth date, country of residence and a phone number.

  3. Send COMP to your Kraken Address
    If you want to sell COMP for another cryptocurrency (like BAL or SNX), first you’ll need to create a deposit address in your Kraken account. Depositing COMP on Kraken is as easy as transferring it to any cryptocurrency address. 

    If instead you want to sell COMP for cash (like USD or AUD), you’ll need to send us identification and proof-of-residence documents. Learn more about our different verification levels here.

    Once your account has received funding, you can begin selling COMP and other cryptocurrencies on Kraken.
