How to Sell ICX (Icon)

Ready to secure your gains (or cut your losses) from your ICX investments?


Ready to secure your gains (or cut your losses) from your ICX investments? 

First, make sure you understand the implications of selling your ICX. Depending on when you first bought ICX, you may be selling it at a profit (or loss), which could impact your portfolio. 

As ICX is a cryptocurrency, it trades on an open, global market, meaning that depending on when you sell, buyers may offer better prices. Remember, the value of your ICX fluctuates against other cryptocurrencies (like BTC or ETH) as well as fiat currencies (like EUR and USD). 

An exchange with a real-time order book (like Kraken) will give you to-the-minute updates on what buyers and sellers are thinking about the current price of ICX.

Still uncertain about selling ICX? You can learn about more ways to use your ICX in our ‘What is Icon?’ guide. If you’re sure you want to sell ICX, follow the steps outlined below.

How to sell ICX on Kraken


If you’re ready to sell ICX, follow these simple steps below:

  1. Sign up for a Kraken account
    You just need an email address, username and a strong password.

  2. Verify your Kraken account
    All you need is your name, birth date, country of residence and phone number.

  3. Send ICX to your Kraken address 
    If you want to sell ICX for another cryptocurrency (like BTC or DASH), first you’ll need a deposit address in your Kraken account. Depositing ICX on Kraken is as easy as transferring it to any cryptocurrency address.

    If instead you want to sell ICX for a fiat currency (like USD or EUR), you’ll need to send us additional identification and proof-of-residence documents. Learn more about our different verification levels here.  

  4. Sell ICX
    Once your account has received your ICX, you can begin selling ICX and other cryptocurrencies on Kraken. (Note: Because Icon runs on Ethereum, it may take some time for funds to be sent on its blockchain. This process is due to the decentralized nature of Ethereum and is outside of Kraken’s control.)

    Next, simply open the New Order page, fill out the order form and click SELL ICX. Check our charts to time the market for the best possible selling times.
