    • Every account will need to be setup individually. This means using different emails and different passwords. You will essentially do the full setup process two separate times. Learn more.

  • How about with an ACH Transfer, Debit Card or Credit Card?


  • What fees does iTrustCapital charge?

  • How do I pay for the fees?

    • The trading fees come out of the account balance.


  • After my account gets funded, does it start as Crypto or USD?

    • Once your account is funded, it remains in USD until you login and trade. You are in full control.

  • Can I hold the Crypto Assets in my own personal wallet?

    • No



  • When I retire and take distributions, do I need to sell or can I take Crypto / Precious Metals?

    • You do not need to sell. We do allow clients to take their assets in-kind. This means you can take possession of the assets you have invested with us in the same form (in-kind). You are not required to sell back to USD.


  • Can iTrustCapital help me with advice - financial or tax related?

    • No, we simply provide a turnkey platform for you to manage your own IRA funds. It’s best to consult with your own Financial Advisor or Tax Professional for those types of questions.


  • Do you have plans to support any additional Airdrops?

    • iTrustCapital supported the Flare airdrop, but will not be supporting anymore, including the Litecoin Flare airdrop.
