How to Buy BAT (Basic Attention Token)
Unsatisfied with your current web browsing experience? If so, you may find the Brave browser to be a powerful tool for change.
Once installed, you’ll be able to buy Basic Attention Token (BAT), a cryptocurrency that lets you reward the media outlets and content creators you enjoy, all with an ad-free experience.
That’s the big idea behind BAT, a cryptocurrency launched on Ethereum (ETH) by Brave, the startup that created the Brave browser.

Where can I buy BAT?
There are a number of ways to buy BAT. However, many find that it is easiest to purchase it through a trusted global exchange like Kraken.
Aside from offering the lowest fees in the industry, Kraken is constantly rated one of the most secure and trusted crypto exchanges in the world. This matters because if you lose the private key to your BAT, it can be challenging if not impossible to recover your funds.
At Kraken, we take security seriously, with tested technology and rigorous procedures designed to safeguard funds. We don’t cut corners when it comes to security, and neither should you.
How much BAT can I buy?
Looking to buy BAT on a budget? Don’t worry, Kraken offers a minimum order size of 50 BAT, meaning you can start buying BAT for less than $10.
Of course, you can also execute larger BAT buy orders as well. It wouldn’t be out of the ordinary for larger traders to purchase or trade 100,000 BAT or more on Kraken.

Where to keep your BAT
Once you buy BAT, you’ll need somewhere to safely store your cryptocurrency.
Kraken is secure, but it’s always safest to store your BAT 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 BAT wallets available. Mobile and web wallets can make transactions easy, while hardware and paper wallets are perhaps best suited for secure, long-term storage.
Kraken is not a wallet service
When choosing a crypto wallet for your BAT, first spend some time thinking about what you plan to do with your tokens to find a wallet that fits your needs.
It is important to note that Kraken is an exchange service and not a wallet service. So while we allow our clients to hold BAT in their accounts, we highly encourage you to separate your BAT holdings into multiple wallets.
