LOS ANGELES, Jan. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Bitcoin IRA, the world's first, largest and most secure digital asset IRA technology platform that allows clients to purchase cryptocurrencies, gold and other digital assets for their retirement accounts, today announced that it has exceeded $400 million in cryptocurrency transactions after launching their 24/7 self-trading crypto IRA platform one year ago.
