A common question that’s surprisingly difficult to find an easy answer to is: How do I invest in bitcoin or crypto using a trust? Many common apps for investing in crypto, like Coinbase, don’t allow trusts.

Luckily, Bitwise makes it easy for trusts to invest in Bitcoin. All types of trusts are eligible, including both revocable and irrevocable. Simply get started with our onboarding process.

  3. Complete the paperwork, or have it completed by a financial advisor, lawyer, or CPA.

  4. Wire funds from your trust.

  5. It’s that simple. And should you need help along the way, you can email us at [email protected].

Once a trust invests, the investment can be monitored at any time through an online investor portal. A financial advisor or third party can be given access, and monthly statements as well as tax documents are produced.
