Where to keep your XMR

虽然门罗币在默认的情况下可能是隐私的,但这并不代表会它自动使其安全。 这意味着一旦您完成购买XMR后, 您需要采取措施对其进行保护。 

最好的方法是使用门罗币 钱包,它允许您发送、接收和存储您的XMR。您可以选择多种类型的钱包来保护您的XMR。钱包选项将取决于您的安全性要求和消费的偏好。 

Kraken is not a wallet service

However, we should remind you that Kraken is an exchange service and not a wallet service. (Note: We do use Monero’s subaddress format, which has fast become the favored format in the Monero community for its privacy advantages.)

So, while we allow clients to hold funds on our exchange, we recommend you secure your holdings into more than one wallet. After all, it’s never good to keep all of your eggs in one basket, even one protected by the mighty Kraken!
