How Quickly Can I invest in Cryptocurrencies?

Prepare to open a CryptoIRA and trade via Coinbase in as little as 7 days.  Save time by funding your IRA via an ACH contribution or by requesting a transfer via wire from your current IRA or 401(k) custodian. 

To get started, you will need to open an Alto CryptoIRA  and initiate funding.  Due to IRS and banking regulations, your CryptoIRA will need to be open for at least 7 days prior to investing. 

See below for a full breakdown of transfer methods and timelines:


Source Method of Payment Trade in as little as...
Cash Contribution  Wire 7 days
ACH 7-8 days
Transfer from another Custodian Wire 7-12 days
Check 12-24 days


Pro Tip: To expedite a rollover, call your transferring custodian to ensure there are no holds on your account, and request they wire funds instead of mailing a physical check.
