As Bitcoin, and cryptocurrencies in general, continue to advance in the world of modern finances, many are finding new use cases for this form of money. Although cryptocurrencies still have limited use cases, many of them are finding new ways to be useful, which will give them an advantage and secure their long-term survival.

Bitcoin, for example, already has numerous use cases, including purchases of goods and services, crypto trading, loans, savings, and more. Another of its use cases includes individual retirement accounts or IRAs. Simply put, this represents an account that individuals can open at a number of financial institutions, and use it to save money for their retirement.

Many choose to open these accounts due to lower taxes, which allow them to save up more. IRA comes in several types, including traditional IRA, rollover IRA, and Roth IRA. Traditional IRA is as simple as it sounds — users simply open an account and start adding money that they can afford to deduct from their income.

Rollover IRA includes “rolling the money over” from the qualified retirement plan to the IRA, while Roth IRA allows users to deposit after-tax money which can then grow completely tax-free

Bitcoin IRAs work pretty much in the same way, except you deposit Bitcoin instead of traditional currencies. While some of the older, traditional IRAs have decided to expand their businesses in order to add cryptocurrencies, there are also several IRAs that were designed and created for dealing with cryptocurrencies specifically. Here are some of the best Bitcoin IRA to choose from in 2019:

1) BitcoinIRA

BitcoinIRA is an IRA company that provides all three types of IRAs, and it works with multiple cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, XRP, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, and Ethereum Classic. It also provides a number of services, including consultation with experts, updated price charts for BTC and ETH, a downloadable e-book that serves as a guide to Bitcoin IRA investing, and more. It is an excellent choice for investors that wish to have a diverse selection of cryptocurrencies for their IRA, and all of the invested coins will be kept safe in a special wallet with a three-layered security system. Using it is easy, which makes it perfect for experienced investors and newcomers alike.

2) Broad Financial

Broad Financial is a company that allows its customers self-directed IRAs, as well as solo 401(k)s. The company has been offering IRAs for a long time, finally going crypto recently, and including Bitcoin. It allows users greater flexibility with their BTC investments, and it includes a flat fee in order to invest. In other words, after users pay $1,395 (or a different amount, depending on the state), they can keep investing any amount they want.

The company also offers helpful information about Bitcoin and even a specialist that can provide professional advice to users that are experiencing difficulties. Starting off is quick and easy, and users can do it online or via a phone call.

3) Regal Assets

This is the first company to receive a license to trade crypto commodities, as well as the first to include alternative assets IRAs for BTC. Apart from Bitcoin, Regal Assets also allows its customers to invest in XRP, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Monero. It provides users with a free rollover kit, and it offers different security and portfolio packages. Furthermore, it is available at any time of day and night to answer users’ questions via chat.

4) First Digital IRA

First Digital IRA provides users with the ability to invest in Bitcoin, XRP, and Ethereum IRAs. However, it also includes other investments, such as mutual funds, stocks, real estate, bonds, precious metal, raw land, and alike. The company also offers all three types of IRAs, as well as a cryptocurrency specialist who can provide users with professional advice and set them up with their digital IRA.

The company’s expert can also help with providing paperwork, secure storage for digital coins, as well as all the information necessary for making a proper investment decision. This is by far the best option for those who want the service to handle their digital IRAs, which may not be for everyone, but it can be quite helpful to some who require assistance with their digital investments.

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

Integrating blockchain technology is fast becoming a necessity for enterprise ventures and small or large businesses, but with a growing number of choices in the tech revolution, it’s difficult to pick a direction without feeling overwhelmed or taken advantage of. This is where BEHOLD THE CRYPTOPRENEURS comes in.

Private keys, the myth of anonymity, and the battle against anarchist ideology are only a few of the difficult challenges faced by businesses that want to incorporate blockchain into their culture. Author Dennis H. Lewis guides the reader through those challenges and helps them discover the true potential of investing in this new economic paradigm.

Every business has pain points that must be overcome in order to branch out and thrive in an ever-changing commercial environment. Blockchain has real world solutions and cryptopreneurs are not limited to the cryptocurrencies they invest in but rather how they seize economic and technological opportunities to make it work for them.

Innovation, trust, and solutions can differentiate your business from all the noise, but without a solid marketing plan, a cryptopreneur can have the best idea and never get far. Remember: a million great ideas times zero market presence equals zero success.

Investors want to know there is public interest and enthusiasm in a project before they commit any money to it. As a cryptopreneur, you are tasked with generating that interest from the…
