Right now, cryptocurrencies are relatively available on 401 (k) plans. Some 401 (k) offer cryptocurrency as a diversification option, but most don't. The best (and easiest) option for adding cryptocurrency to your retirement portfolio is to open a self-directed cryptocurrency IRA and make a reinvestment. These self-directed crypto IRAs can be configured as a Roth or traditional IRA.
Depending on your goals, you can transfer your 401 (k) to a Roth Crypto IRA or a traditional crypto IRA. The reinvestment of a Roth Crypto IRA account will incur a taxable event during the conversion, but after that, the final withdrawal from the account after 59 and a half years will be tax-free. Reinvesting a traditional crypto IRA account will not involve a taxable event during the conversion. However, withdrawing from the account after age 59 and a half will be a taxable event.
The platform, called Alt 401 (k), will allow workers at participating companies to transfer up to 5% of their account balances to a cryptocurrency window listed on Coinbase. If you make an investment in bitcoins for your SDIRA, they can help you with the entire transfer process to make it fast and simple.
