How to Sell EOS (EOSIO)
Need to make a change to your crypto portfolio?
If so, you may want to first evaluate the full impact of selling EOS. Depending on when you started buying, you may be selling EOS at a profit or loss, which could impact your finances.
Remember, EOS is a cryptocurrency, meaning it trades on a 24/7 market. So, depending on when you decide to sell EOS, buyers may be willing to offer more competitive prices.
An exchange like Kraken with a robust real-time market can give you insight into what traders around the world are willing to pay for any EOS you sell, whether you’re looking to exchange it for another cryptocurrency (like BTC or XRP) or a fiat currency (like GBP or EUR).
Be advised, if you’ve been staking EOS, there may be a waiting period during which you’ll be unable to unlock your funds and execute a trade. Depending on how you’re allocating the staked funds, this wait may be between 24 and 72 hours.

Why sell EOS?
If you’re no longer operating or using dapps, it may make sense for you to sell EOS, as that’s the primary use case for the EOS.IO blockchain. But, there may be other reasons to sell EOS.
Selling EOS may be advantageous if you want to:
- Adjust your long-term crypto portfolio strategy
- Avoid losses in times of sudden price movements
- Capture gains from past EOS purchases
- Shut down an EOS game or dapp you’ve created
