Why choose iTrustCapital as your Crypto IRA / Bitcoin IRA?


The tax advantages of a cryptocurrency IRA are clear. Using the model of a traditional IRA we allow you to invest in cryptocurrencies and precious metals for tax-advantaged gains. Whether you hold your assets long term or buy and sell with the market, iTrustCapital’s IRA account provides the lowest transaction fees for buying bitcoin or other digital currencies.


Pricing and Fees

  • iTrustCapital

    • We offer low accounts costs and have straightforward fees – nothing hidden and no gimmicks!

    • We are proud of our business model and post our fees upfront for all to see.

      • You don’t have to give us your name, phone number, and email to learn what an iTrust account will cost. 



  • Competitors

    • Many other Bitcoin/Crypto IRA companies don’t post their fees upfront.

    • There is a good reason for this; they are embarrassed. They use tricks to gather your personal information (name, phone number, email…etc) in order to have a highly trained sales person call you, in order to convince you to buy.

Takeaway: Be sure to get all fees in writing from anyone you are considering doing business with.




  • iTrustCapital


    – We use Coinbase Custody and Curv to secure client’s digital assets. Coinbase Custody is one of the leading institutional cold storage custody in the world. They are SOC 2 certified and maintain a $320 Million dollar insurance policy. 




    Curv utilizes MPC Cold Storage, is SOC2 certified, backed by the largest Venture Capital firms in Crypto, and stores digital assets for institutions like Franklin Templeton and eToro. They also have a $50 Million insurance policy. 



  • Competitors


    – Most other Bitcoin/Crypto IRA providers do not disclose exactly how they store clients’ assets. Some may say “cold storage,” but that could be nothing more than holding your assets on a personal ledger device. 

Takeaway: Be sure to read a public whitepaper on how your assets are being stored and that it is truly at an institutional level. 


24/7 Trading Ability

  • iTrustCapital –


    As an iTrust client, you will be able to log into your account and make trades 24/7. Trades execute in real-time and settle seconds.


  • Competitors


    – Only a few other Bitcoin/Crypto IRA companies have any kind of investment platform.  However, their fees are steep and trades take days to settle. For the others, you will be forced to call in during business hours to transact and check your values. 

Takeaway:  What year is it 1980? Crypto trades 24/7/365; you need to have access to your account at all times.



Investment Options 

  • iTrustCapital

Takeaway: The Cryptocurrency market is constantly evolving. It is critical to have access to the new digital to ensure you are maximizing your potential gains.


Client Reviews

  • iTrustCapital

    • Note – not all of our reviews are 5-stars. That’s because they are real reviews from real clients, and no legitimate company has nothing but perfect reviews.


  • Competitors


    – Some Bitcoin/Crypto IRA companies claim they have thousands of 5-star reviews. Some even display how many they claim to have on their website. 

    • However, they don’t provide any links to the reviews, which is very odd for a company not to want potential new customers to access great reviews from current customers easily. If you investigate further, you will find there are review sites, but little to no reviews posted recently.


Takeaway:  Make sure you can easily find numerous recent reviews from any company you are considering doing business with.
