What Is A Crypto IRA?

A Crypto IRA™ part of a 4 pillar process to give you tax free crypto growth using your IRA. A Self-Directed IRA LLC (SDIRA) is a type of individual retirement account (IRA) which allows you to use your IRA funds to purchase tangible assets such as real estate, precious metals, or other alternative assets like Cryptocurrency.

A key feature of Viva's Crypto IRA™ is that it has unrestricted access to exchanges, portfolios and you can invest whatever portfolio you want. If you see a company promoting Cryptocurrency in your IRA, but then only allow one broker like Coinbase, then it's not a Crypto IRA™. Be sure to check the restrictions online providers place on you.

Handing Over Your Control

Not all custodians are created equal because most of the custodians you're familiar with (like Fidelity, Prudential, and TD Ameritrade) do not allow self-directed IRAs.

If you google self-directed IRA custodians, you'll find over 60 of them. The list can be overwhelming and while many seem glorious by promising you low fees, complete freedom to invest as you wish or promising you complete check book control, it isn’t until you have paid their account set up fees, spent weeks working on the transfers and transferred your money, you find out that they don’t really mean what they say.

For example, some custodians only allow you to purchase certain cryptocurrencies through one specific trading desk and then require you keep your crypto there, which is expensive and not secure.

Other custodians will pull a bait and switch, quoting low fees with “exceptions” in fine print which often include crypto transactions. Just as in a romantic relationship, it is important to know your partner/custodian before you get into bed together.

We work with many clients who transition from online 'cheap' IRA providers that don't allow them flexibility to invest in professional portfolios. Don't fall into the trap.

Paying Unnecessary Fees, Penalties Or Taxes

FAQs

What Is Crypto Custody™?

Crypto Custody™ refers to the safe keeping of your crypto assets. Traditionally, to keep your crypto secure, you have to generate private keys with hardware devices and then store your device and keys somewhere “safe” and make sure you didn’t make any mistakes.

Unfortunately, the higher the value of your crypto, the more likely you are to make a mistake if you're managing it yourself at home because a higher balance makes you feel emotional. Therefore, there are three levels of Crypto Custody™ to be aware of.

Build Your Own Custody

If you're a developer or a company, you can build your own security from the ground up, but you would require the resources and vision to do so.  Cryptocurrency is an exciting industry and many companies with resources choose the path of building their own infrastructure.

Do It Yourself Hybrid Solution

Most retail investors choose a hybrid approach. This where where they open an account on an exchange to buy and sell cryptocurrency and then buy a hardware or physical wallet to store their crypto. 

The key problems with this approach is hardware wallets can be hacked quite easily, and many crypto exchanges limit how much you can deposit and withdraw. As a result it can be hard to get your money out. 

The level of risk of using a hardware wallet is about the same as holding physical cash in your home. You might feel safe with $10k in cash. But if you had $1 million in cash at home, would you feel safe with it there? Above all, if you don't feel safe, then you need a done for you custody solution.

Done For You Institutional Custody

Investors prefer institutional custody. This is where you pay for dedicated security and have insurance on your holdings.  Viva uses Fireblocks as a custody technology provider, but there are others available. 

When you use top grade custody, it removes the single point of failure and you can sleep well knowing your assets are secure and you can get them out when you need.

Crypto IRA™ Investing Vs Non IRA Investing

Crypto IRA™ Investing 

  • Tax Free Transactions: IRA transactions have no taxable events.
  • Higher compound growth. Lower tax means returns can compound faster. 
  • Less paperwork: No taxable events mean no complex tracking needed

Non Crypto IRA™ Investing 

  • Taxable Transactions: Every transaction creates a taxable event required to be tracked and reported at financial year end. Every trade increase your capital gains tax with the amount depending on if you've held the position for longer or shorter than one year. 
  • Record All Transactions: You must record every action when investing in crypto directly for end of financial year audits with the IRS. 
  • Tax Payments. Your share of taxable gains needs to be paid to the IRS each year. 

What Is The Best Crypto Portfolio For an IRA?

The optimal portfolio is to hold 70% Bitcoin and 30% Ethereum because it's been proven via a Monte Carlo process using historical data to produce the highest returns for the least risk compared to holding Bitcoin by itself.

How To Buy Crypto In An IRA?

A managed account solution using a custodian with an over the counter trade desk is the safest and best solution for you to invest. This allows you to work with professional who place your traders and have access to the highest liquidity in the market. 

This is especially true when your account balance rises because it's very important you can get your money out when you want to.

A managed account means you save money on transaction prices, and don't have to learn to trade or use complicated software. Look at the Digital Asset Dividend Account for more information. 

How To Fund Your Crypto IRA™

There are 3 common ways to fund an IRA.

1) Transfer an Existing IRA

Existing IRAs can be transferred into a Crypto IRA™ without creating a taxable event or penalty. Examples include: Traditional, Roth, SEP, Simple, Inherited, Rollover

If you've already set up a Crypto IRA™ with a different provider, you can likely do an In-Kind Transfer. This allows you to transfer cryptocurrency wallet to wallet without liquidating to your assets.

2) Rollover an Employer Plan

Plans from previous employers can be rolled-over into an IRA. These include 401k, 403b, TSP, 457, and some pensions. There are different requirements for each plan. Contact us to find out if your current plan qualifies.

3) Contribution of New Funds

You can make new contributions of $6,000 if you are under 50 years old, and $7,000 if you are over 50 years old according to the contribution limits of 2020/2021.
