If you’ve been following along with us on social media, you know that new crypto assets are being added almost every week. (And if you aren’t, follow us on your preferred social network to stay up to date on our new coin and investment partner announcements. See links at the bottom left.)
Since announcing the addition of 19 new coins and tokens on August 25, we’ve added another 21 cryptocurrencies to Alto CryptoIRA through our Coinbase integration—for a grand total of more than 100!
Prior to passing this major milestone, Alto CryptoIRA already offered among the largest coin and token selections of any cryptocurrency IRA. In fact, if there’s a crypto IRA that offers a greater selection of crypto, we’ve yet to find it. (At least announced publicly, but why not share something like that?!)
At Alto, we’re all about providing you the opportunity to diversify your portfolio with alternative assets—including real estate, securitized art, fine wine, startups, and crypto. Adding to our selection of digital assets is right in line with this mission. Because you should be able to invest in the digital assets you believe have the most long-term potential—and with all the same tax advantages of any IRA.
Here’s what we added to Alto CryptoIRA through our integration with Coinbase:

Diversify Your Portfolio with One of the Largest Selections of Crypto Available in an IRA
Whether you’re just getting into cryptocurrency or were an early adopter, an Alto CryptoIRA could be the easiest, most tax-efficient way to invest in crypto. Why?
Instead of paying gains taxes and reporting every trade, by investing in crypto with an IRA, you’ll either defer taxes until you take distributions—at which point (assuming you are not taking an early distribution) you’ll pay income tax (traditional and SEP IRAs)—or never pay taxes at all (Roth IRAs).
Taxes aren’t the only advantage, though. Alto CryptoIRA offers some of the lowest trading fees of any crypto IRA, as well as:
- No monthly account fees
- No setup fees
- $10 investment minimums
- A 1% trading fee
- More than 100 coins and tokens
- Integration with Coinbase
We even offer a complimentary concierge service to help you create and fund your account.
