LOS ANGELES, Jan. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- BitcoinIRA.com, the first and only bitcoin-based retirement investment company, today announced the completion of a new milestone. Our proprietary platform enabling direct bitcoin investment was featured in the Wall Street Journal as more validation that Bitcoin is entering the mainstream.
"[Bitcoin IRA's] timing couldn't be better: Bitcoin's market value shot up 123% in 2016, and it nearly hit a record high less than two weeks ago."
Said Jason Zweig, who writes The Intelligent Investor every Saturday for The Wall Street Journal. He is also the editor of the revised edition of Benjamin Graham's The Intelligent Investor, the classic text that Warren Buffett has described as "by far the best book about investing ever written."
In Bitcoin IRA's most recent investment report, Chief Strategist, Edmund C. Moy cited strong fundamentals and maintains a positive outlook for Bitcoin's price in 2017.
"Bitcoin IRA had a great 2016. On average our clients are up over 40% as Bitcoin continues to be one of the best performing asset classes available. We are seeing much less volatility in price and more regulation in the industry. Having our business model validated by the Wall Street Journal has us very excited for 2017."
Edmund C. Moy was the 38th Director of the United States Mint from 2006 to 2011. Moy earned the Alexander Hamilton Medal for public service, awarded by then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson.
Bitcoin IRA offers both traditional and Roth IRA options, which offer the same tax incentives as regular IRAs and 401(k)s. The company differentiates itself from other bitcoin investment products in multiple ways. Unlike Bitcoin ETFs and investment funds, Bitcoin IRA offers an opportunity for individuals to invest in "real" Bitcoin at a much lower fee. In addition, investors keep total control over their bitcoin deposits, with no holding fees and the ability to withdraw once the term is over.
As the deadline for investors to contribute to their retirement in 2016 approaches, we are seeing many more inquires from our US based clients.
