Holding Bitcoin in a tax deferred account can potentially remove all future appreciation from taxation. I can cut through all of the confusion and guide you through the entire process of setting up the legal structure necessary to hold Bitcoin or other cryptocurrency in an IRA or 401(k).
There are many Bitcoin IRA solutions in the market. Why should you choose this one?
Because unlike most “Bitcoin IRAs”, our structure allows you to hold your own private keys.
Why is this important?
First, as the saying goes, “not your keys, not your Bitcoin.” When you don’t hold the private keys for your Bitcoin, your funds are by necessity exposed to:
- Hacks. There have been 30+ successful hacks to date of Bitcoin exchanges and other custodians.
- Solvency Risks. If you hold your keys in a custodial solution and that provider goes out of business, your funds could be gone.
- Regulatory Seizure. Funds in custodial solutions are subject to being arbitrarily frozen should a “chain analysis” company find the source of your coins to be unsavory.
With the Keykeeper IRA, you can eliminate all such risks. You can secure your keys however you like: hardware wallets, cold storage, multi-sig, and more.
Second, when you use a run-of-the-mill Bitcoin IRA and you don’t hold your keys, every purchase and sale requires custodian approval. Custodians typically charge a fee for executing trades on your behalf. Some even also charge a fee on the net value of your account! With the Keykeeper IRA, there are NO trading fees, and NO fees levied on the value of your Bitcoin.
The one-time setup fee for a Keekeper IRA is $1995, which covers every fee you would be charged in the entire first year of operation. In Year 2 and future years, the annual fees are typically only around $275.
