Where to keep your STORJ
Once you buy STORJ, you’ll need somewhere to safely store your cryptocurrency.
Kraken is secure, but it’s always safest to store your STORJ in a wallet, a software or hardware device that stores the public and private keys required to make crypto transactions.
There are many types of STORJ wallets available. Mobile and web wallets can make transactions easy, while hardware wallets are perhaps best suited for secure, long-term storage.
When choosing a crypto wallet for your STORJ, 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 STORJ in their accounts, we highly encourage you to separate your STORJ holdings into multiple wallets.
