Where can I buy REP?

There are a number of ways to buy REP. 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 REP, 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 REP can I buy?

Looking to buy REP on a budget? Don’t worry, Kraken offers a minimum order size of 0.3 REP to help you gain exposure to a variety of assets.

Of course, you can also execute larger REP buy orders as well. It wouldn’t be out of the ordinary for larger traders to purchase or trade 1,400 REP or more on Kraken.

Where to keep your REP

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

Kraken is secure, but it’s always safest to keep your REP in a wallet, a software or hardware device that stores the public and private keys required to make crypto transactions.

Augur is a platform built on top of Ethereum, meaning REP can be stored in an Ethereum wallet, of which there are many. 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 REP, 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

크라켄은 월렛 서비스가 아닌거래소 서비스를 제공하는 기업입니다. 그러므로 저희는 고객님들이 어거(REP)를 크라켄 계정에서 보관하는걸 허용하고 있지만, 고객님들께 보유하신 어거를 다중의 월렛에 분산 보관하시길 적극 추천드립니다.
