Where to store your SAND tokens
Once you buy SAND, you’ll need somewhere to safely store your cryptocurrency token.
Kraken is secure, but it’s always safest to keep your SAND in a wallet, a software or hardware device that stores the public and private keys required to make crypto transactions.
When choosing a crypto wallet for your SAND, first spend some time thinking about what you plan to do with your tokens to find a wallet that fits your needs.
The Sandbox is a platform built on top of Ethereum, meaning SAND tokens can be stored in a variety of Ethereum wallets. Of note, mobile and web wallets can make transactions easy, while hardware wallets are generally suited for secure, long-term storage.
Kraken is not a wallet service
Kraken is an exchange for digital assets and not a wallet service. So, while we allow our clients to hold SAND in their accounts, we highly encourage you to separate and store your SAND holdings into multiple wallets.
