Invest your Superannuation into Cryptocurrency

How can I invest my superannuation in cryptocurrency?

Investing your superannuation into cryptocurrency is a simple and easy process.

The cryptocurrency purchase into your super is done through a self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF). Like other super funds, SMSFs help you save for retirement. The difference is that an SMSF is run by you, which is where the extra control, effort and responsibility comes in. You decide what to invest in. Most of Australia’s Superannuation is held in SMSFs – currently $700 billion across 600,000 different funds.

Once you have an SMSF, you can decide how much you would like to invest in crypto. This can be as little 1% or as much as 100% of your super – it’s completely up to you.

Already have an SMSF?

We are experienced with both the storage and reporting requirements for SMSFs and will guide you through the entire process.

Most important is to have a separate cold storage wallet only for your super investments. We recommend using the Ledger Nano S, which is a secure and easy to use option. It can be purchased straight from our online shop. You must also ensure that your Trust Deed does not have any restrictions on cryptocurrency investments.

Bitcoin Australia ensures that all documentation is compliant with the ATO reporting rules to make the end of year compliance as easy as possible.

Don’t have an SMSF?

We are working closely with New Brighton Capital, an Australian based accountancy specialising in self-managed super funds. New Brighton Capital assists with the setup of your SMSF and takes care of the annual auditing. They offer extensive experience in cryptocurrency trading and superannuation investments.
