Why buy ETC?
Ethereum Classic allows developers to create new cryptocurrencies and decentralized applications that can run autonomously on a blockchain.
These programs, more commonly known as decentralized applications, can include anything from exchanges to prediction markets to games.
Some investors would also argue Ethereum Classic’s fixed supply makes it a good store of value, as its cryptocurrency should become more scarce over time.
- Use its ecosystem of decentralized applications
- Hold your money in a cryptocurrency with a finite supply
- Trade cryptocurrencies to pursue profits
- Voice your belief in the technology’s long-term potential
The simplest (and fastest) way would be to buy Ethereum Classic directly from other traders on a cryptocurrency exchange like Kraken.
Thanks to our world-class security team, Kraken is one of the most secure and trusted exchanges in the industry. Whether you’re buying Ethereum Classic, or any other cryptocurrency, you can be certain that your transactions are safe and secure.
How much ETC can I buy?
Looking to buy ETC on a budget? Don’t worry, Kraken offers a minimum order size of 1 ETC to help you gain exposure to a variety of assets.
Of course, you can also execute larger ETC buy orders as well. It wouldn’t be out of the ordinary for larger traders to purchase or trade 4,000 ETC or more on Kraken.

Where to keep your ETC
Now that you’ve bought ETC, you’ll need somewhere to put it. Kraken is secure, but it’s always safest to store your crypto in a wallet. A wallet is a software or hardware device that holds the public and private keys required to make cryptocurrency transactions.
There are many types of wallets available. Mobile and web-based wallets make frequent transactions easy. Hardware wallets are best suited for secure, long-term storage. When you’re choosing a crypto wallet, think of what you plan to do with your tokens. A wallet that best suits your needs is always the right choice.
Kraken is not a wallet service
Kraken allows users to hold funds on the exchange, but is not a wallet service. We recommend moving any funds you don’t intend to trade with into your personal wallet.
