Questions? Well, we've got answers.

Who is eligible to open an Alto CryptoIRA®?

Currently, any United States resident (with the exception of anyone located in Hawaii) who is 18 years or older can open an Alto CryptoIRA.

Why buy and sell crypto in an IRA?

An IRA offers unique tax benefits that make retirement capital an exciting funding method for investments into alternative assets. 

Investing in alternatives with an Alto self-directed IRA means you can legally minimize and potentially even eliminate taxes altogether. In Traditional and SEP IRAs, taxes are typically deferred on gains until withdrawal. When investing with a Roth IRA, qualified withdrawals are generally tax-free (subject to IRS rules). 

Investing with a self-directed IRA also gives you access to capital that is otherwise locked away until later in life. This means you can strategically align the long term time horizon of capital earmarked for retirement and alternative assets that have longer than typical commitment periods – an investing match made in duration heaven. 

Additionally, unlike when you trade crypto outside a tax-advantaged account, doing so within an IRA allows you to avoid the often-tedious process of reporting trades on your taxes each year.

What does investing in cryptocurrency with an Alto CryptoIRA® cost?

Alto prioritizes simple, transparent pricing that we hope makes investing in alternatives feel approachable and affordable. 

The Alto CryptoIRA® charges a 1% trade fee on the USD amount of any buy and sell order of cryptocurrency.
