San Francisco
February 26, 2020

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?


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.

  1. Start here.
  2. Select “Individual Investor”, confirm that your trust is an accredited investor, and create a Bitwise Account.
  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.

Bitwise provides ongoing market commentary and pride ourselves on professional, responsive client service for investors.

Important Disclosures

Bitwise Asset Management, Inc. and its affiliates (collectively, the “Manager”) have produced and distributes this Presentation for informational purposes only and in relation to a potential opportunity to subscribe for limited liability company interests (“Interests”) in any of several Funds offered only to certain Accredited Investors by the Manager, including the Bitwise 10 Private Index Fund, LLC; the Bitwise Bitcoin Fund, LLC; The Digital Asset Index Fund, LLC; The Bitwise 10 Index Offshore Fund, Ltd., and the Bitwise Ethereum Fund, LLC. Any offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy Interests in those Funds will solely and exclusively be made through definitive offering documents, identified as such, in respect of each Fund and in compliance with the terms of all applicable securities and other laws. Such definitive offering documents, if any, will describe risks related to an investment in the Funds (including loss of the entire investment) and will qualify in their entirety the information set forth in this Presentation. Prior to making any investment decision with respect to any Fund, each investor must undertake its own independent examination and investigation of the Fund, including the merits and risks involved in an investment in the Interests, and must base its investment decision—including a determination whether Interests would be a suitable investment for the investor—on such examination and investigation, and must not rely on the Manager or the Fund in making such investment decision. Prospective investors must not construe the contents of this Presentation as legal, tax, investment, or other advice. Each prospective investor is urged to consult with his or her own advisors with respect to legal, tax, regulatory, financial, accounting, and similar consequences of investing in the Fund, the suitability of the investment for such investor, and other relevant matters concerning an investment in the Fund. The summary set forth in this Presentation does not purport to be complete, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the definitive offering documents relating to the Fund. Do not place undue reliance on this Presentation. Performance information is provided for informational purposes only. Actual performance of any Fund may vary substantially from the performance provided in this presentation. Backward-looking performance cannot predict how any investment strategy will perform in the future. Additionally, each Fund will have losses, liabilities and expenses that will offset its income and gains and therefore the Fund’s performance may be below the Index’s performance. The performance of the Fund and the Index will vary due to other factors such as imperfect correlation between the Fund’s investments and Index composition, regulatory restrictions, high portfolio turnover rate, rounding of prices and timing differences associated with additions to and deletions from the Index and the Fund. The Units of the Funds (the “Interests”) have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, the securities laws of any state, or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction, nor is such registration contemplated. The Interests will be offered and sold under the exemption provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933 and Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated thereunder and other exemptions of similar import in the laws of the states and jurisdictions where the offering will be made. The offer and sale of the Interests have not been registered with or approved or disapproved by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) or the securities commission or regulatory authority of any state or foreign jurisdiction.
