Why buy OCEAN?
While OCEAN is primarily used to access its marketplace, that’s not the only reason you might be interested in this innovative crypto asset.
You may also consider buying OCEAN if you want to:
- Diversify your long-term investment strategy
- Invest in projects designed for decentralized data sharing
- Stake OCEAN to provide liquidity to the marketplace
- Support the development of applications on Ethereum.
There are a number of ways to buy OCEAN. 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 OCEAN, 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 OCEAN can I buy?
Looking to buy OCEAN on a budget? Don’t worry, Kraken offers a minimum order size of 10 OCEAN to help you gain exposure to a variety of assets.
Of course, you can also execute larger OCEAN buy orders as well. It wouldn’t be out of the ordinary for larger traders to purchase or trade 115,000 OCEAN or more on Kraken.
