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.

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.
