How to Sell Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
All set to sell your BCH? The good news is you’ve come to the right place. Kraken offers a robust, real-time cryptocurrency exchange, uniting buyers and sellers in markets around the globe, including many for popular BCH trading pairs.
This means if you’re ready to cut your losses (or cap your gains) by selling BCH at the best possible price, our order books can help you with your goal.
Before you hit enter on your trade, though, first make sure you understand the implications of selling your BCH. Even if you received your BCH when Bitcoin Cash split from Bitcoin (BTC), you may face tax reporting obligations.

- Realize gains from previous BCH purchases
- Claim losses (or gains) on your annual tax filings
