As of now, investors can not buy Bitcoin in their Schwab IRA. Charles Schwab has not made any moves to add cryptocurrency to its lineup of investments offered in retirement accounts.
That said, it’s not impossible that the company could change its tune in the future. Bitcoin and other digital currencies have become more mainstream in recent years, with more businesses and financial institutions beginning to accept them.
If enough demand exists from Schwab customers, it’s possible that the company could begin offering Bitcoin IRA accounts.
For now, though, investors will need to look elsewhere if they want to add cryptocurrency to their retirement portfolios.
