Where can I buy MANA?
There are a number of ways to buy MANA. 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 MANA, 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 MANA can I buy?
Looking to buy Decentraland MANA on a budget? Don’t worry, Kraken offers a minimum order size of 50 MANA to help you gain exposure to a variety of assets.
Of course, you can also execute larger MANA buy orders as well. It wouldn’t be out of the ordinary for larger traders to purchase or trade 30,000 MANA or more on Kraken.

Where to keep your MANA
Once you purchase Decentraland MANA, you’ll need somewhere to safely store your cryptocurrency.
Kraken is secure, but it’s always safest to keep your MANA in a wallet, a software or hardware device that stores the public and private keys required to make crypto transactions.
Decentraland is a platform built on top of Ethereum, meaning MANA 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 MANA, 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 MANA in their accounts, we highly encourage you to separate your MANA holdings into multiple wallets.
