How to sell WAVES on Kraken

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

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

  2. Verify your Kraken account.
    Provide your name, birth date, country of residence and phone number.

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

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

  4. Sell WAVES!
    After the funds are successfully received by your account, you can begin selling WAVES on Kraken. Note: If you’re sending WAVES from your own wallet, it may take time for the transaction to confirm before you can trade. This is due to the decentralized nature of the Waves blockchain and is outside Kraken’s control.

    Simply open the New Order page, fill out the order form and click SELL WAVES. Next, check our charts to time the market for the best possible trading times.
