Where to keep your ACA

Once you buy ACA, your tokens will be held securely on the Kraken platform. 

Kraken has established itself as one of the most secure and reputable crypto exchanges in the world. However, clients that choose to self-custody their crypto have the option to withdraw their ACA tokens to their own hardware or software wallet. 

Because ACA is a platform built on top of Polkadot, ACA can also be stored in a Polkadot wallet.


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 ACA in their accounts, we highly encourage you to separate your ACA coin holdings into multiple wallets.
