Never pay taxes with a Roth CryptoIRA*

Consider diversifying your portfolio with cryptocurrency in a Roth CryptoIRA. A Roth CryptoIRA is funded with after-tax dollars, meaning you can shelter your gains from taxes when you take a distribution from your account.
Tax-free growth
You don’t pay any taxes on dividends, interest, or capital gains earned within the account which enables faster compounding growth over decades.
Tax-free withdrawals
Qualified withdrawals from a Roth IRA are free from federal and state income taxes.
No RMDs
No Required Minimum Distributions.

“Being a beginner crypto investor with limited computer skills, the folks at Alto were very patient and kind in helping me navigate online to set up and manage my account. They helped with moving funds into and out of my wallet. Once I walked through the process it wasn't as complicated as I thought. Everything you need is explained and if you have questions they have answers. They are very professional. You couldn't ask for better service.”

“Great value Alternative Asset Roth IRA for a wide selection of cryptocurrencies.  Solid custodian with Coinbase. Outstanding service provided to help me do a partial transfer of assets from another custodian. Very professional yet personal and friendly customer service.”

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.Applicable Service Fees apply.
