How to sell TRX (Tron)
To start, make sure you understand the impact of selling TRX.
Depending on when you started buying Tron, you may be selling TRX at a profit (or loss), which could impact your portfolio and have bigger implications for your finances.
TRX is a cryptocurrency, meaning it trades on a 24/7 market. So, depending on when you decide to sell TRX, buyers may offer higher or lower prices. That’s because the price of TRX rises and falls against other crypto assets (like BTC or XMR) as well as fiat currencies.
Additionally, be advised that if you’ve been staking TRX, there may be a waiting period for you to unlock your funds. (Note: By selling TRX, you’ll no longer be able to generate new TRX via your Kraken or other exchange account.)
Still not sure about selling? Read up on use cases for Tron in our ‘What is Tron? (TRX)’ guide. If you’re sure you want to sell TRX, follow the steps outlined below.

Why sell TRX?
We get it, sometimes buying Tron is just one part of a larger investment strategy. Depending on other available market opportunities (or your changing risk tolerance), you may need to update your portfolio allocations from time to time.
For example, you may want to sell TRX if you’re seeking to:
- Adjust your long-term crypto portfolio strategy
- Avoid losses in times of sudden price movements
- Capture gains from past TRX purchases
- Exchange TRX for another cryptocurrency or fiat currency
- Stop staking TRX
