Where to keep your FIL

Once you buy FIL, you’ll need somewhere to safely store your cryptocurrency. 

Kraken is secure, but it’s always safest to store your FIL 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 FIL wallets available. Mobile and web wallets can make transactions easy, while hardware and paper wallets are perhaps best suited for secure, long-term storage. 

When choosing a crypto wallet for your FIL, first spend some time thinking about what you plan to do with your tokens to find a wallet that fits your needs.


必须注意的是Kraken为您提供交易服务而并非钱包服务。。 虽然我们允许客户在他们的账户中持有FIL 但我们仍强烈鼓励您将持有的 FIL 资产分散至多个钱包中。
