Where can I buy OMG?
As with any cryptocurrency, you can buy OMG from a variety of places on the internet. However, you may find that it is easiest to purchase through a trusted global exchange.
Kraken offers a wide selection of crypto assets and traditional currencies, with over 100 trading pairs. This means whether you want to sell BTC or LTC for OMG, we can provide a robust and active global market with industry-leading liquidity.
At Kraken, we take security seriously, with technology and procedures designed to safeguard all of our client funds. We don’t cut corners when it comes to security, and neither should you.
How much OMG can I buy?
Don’t have much cash or crypto to spare? On Kraken, you can purchase as little as 10 OMG, meaning you can buy OMG on just about any budget.
Kraken can handle larger orders as well. For instance, it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary for larger traders to trade 5,000 OMG coins or more with other clients on Kraken.

Where do I keep my OMG?
Once you buy OMG, you’ll need somewhere to safely store your cryptocurrency, especially if you’re not expecting to immediately spend it.
Kraken prides itself on security, but it’s always safest to store your OMG in a wallet, a software or hardware application that stores the private keys that guarantee your ownership of OMG.
There are many types of OMG wallets available. Mobile and web wallets can make transactions easy, while hardware and paper wallets are perhaps best suited for secure, long-term storage.
When choosing a crypto wallet for your OMG, 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 OMG in their exchange accounts, we encourage you to consider holding any tokens you purchase in multiple wallets.
