Where to keep your ICP

Once you buy ICP, 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 ICP tokens to their own hardware or software wallet. 

Because the Internet Computer is a platform built on top of Solana, ICP can also be stored in a cryptocurrency 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 ICP in their accounts, we highly encourage you to separate your ICP coin holdings into multiple wallets.
