How to buy and sell NFTs on Kraken
Trade holds
Purchasing cryptocurrencies with our Instant Buy feature, or depositing cash via ACH Plaid or Paypal, will trigger a trade hold on your account. This will temporarily prevent NFT trade activity (purchases, sales and offers) for enhanced security.

Buying and selling an NFT on Kraken
