Bitcoin IRA started its business by providing retirement-oriented investment services to its clients, but the firm soon started to expand its reach in the industry. Recently, it launched a Self-Trader platform which enables its customers to buy, sell, and swap cryptocurrencies directly inside their retirement accounts.
According to the company, Bitcoin IRA has processed over $350 million since its establishment in 2016 and has gained more than 4,000 clients.
To gain more clients, both the companies have decided to waive the first year’s deposit fee for a limited number of customers.
“Bitcoin IRA delivers an innovative retirement platform and, with our industry-leading technology and practices for security, custody, and compliance, we have built the industry’s best offering for retail investors who want to make digital assets a part of their retirement investment strategy,” Mike Belshe, CEO, BitGo, added.
Earlier this year, Bitcoin IRA also launched a turnkey white-label solution for enterprise businesses to allow their customers to invest in Bitcoin-based retirement funds.
