Why Sell ALGO?

Depending on your risk tolerance and investment allocations, you may also find it advantageous to sell ALGO for other cryptocurrencies or cash. You might sell ALGO if you want to:

  • Sell your ALGO for crypto or cash
  • Capture gains (or avoid losses) in times of price volatility
  • Realize gains from previous ALGO purchases


How do I sell ALGO on Kraken?

  1. Sign up for a Kraken account
    You’ll need a username, email address and, something else we highly recommend, a strong password.

  2. Verify your Kraken account
    You’ll have to provide your name, birth date, country of residence and phone number. If you own ALGO, you can deposit and sell it today.

  3. Send ALGO to Your Kraken Address
    If you want to sell ALGO for another cryptocurrency (like BTC or ETC), begin by generating a deposit address and moving your ALGO to that new address to officially deposit your crypto.

    (Note: Once you send your ALGO to Kraken, your cryptocurrency will no longer be generating staking rewards. So, if you change your mind and want to continue earning ALGO, you’ll need to send your ALGO back to another wallet).

    For more details on how Alogrand works, read our “What is Algorand?” guide.
