How to Invest in Crypto With a Self-Directed IRA

Cryptocurrencies are becoming increasingly mainstream. For instance, the SEC began approving Bitcoin futures-based ETFs and robo-advisors have been buying up crypto-focused asset management firms. However, most of these funds employ buy-and-hold or long-only strategies, and they solely invest in Bitcoin, Ethereum, or a handful of other prominent cryptocurrencies.

Self-directed IRAs, or SDIRAs, are traditional or Roth IRAs that let you invest in more than stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or other standard investments. Using these accounts, you can directly buy and sell cryptocurrencies on an exchange (along with other alternative assets) while realizing the tax benefits of an IRA.
