NEW YORK, Nov. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- IRA Financial Group & IRA Financial Trust Company, a leading financial technology self-directed IRA and 401(k) plan provider & custodian, is excited to announce its new digital solution for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency investments.
"IRA Financial has integrated with Gemini to be the first self-directed retirement provider to allow for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency investments directly from our digital app," said Adam Bergman, President of IRA Financial.

This new digital solution will allow our self-directed IRA and 401(k) plan clients the ability to buy and sell cryptocurrencies at any-time without the need of a broker, control transaction costs by sidestepping the need for an LLC or costly broker, and best of all, trust Gemini as the licensed and qualified custodian of their cryptocurrency private key.
