Self-Direct your IRA

4 Key Points To Consider
When Investing In Cryptocurrency

1: Crypto Permitted

IRAs can own virtual currency (e.g. cryptocurrency) for investment purposes.


The optimal structure for owning crypto currency is an IRA/LLC where the IRA/LLC bank checking account is linked to a digital wallet to exchange dollars for cryptocurrency.

3: Cryptocurrency Gains

The IRS has identified cryptocurrency as property, and the buying and selling of crypto for investment purposes is generally exempt from unrelated business income tax (UBIT).

4: Key Storage

IRA owners should be diligent in how they store their private keys for their cryptocurrency. Keys should be stored separately from any personal owned crypto and if a hard wallet is used by an IRA/LLC it should only be used for the IRA crypto.
