Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies

A Hedge for Inflation

What is Bitcoin

Bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency, without a central bank or single administrator, that can be sent from user to user on the peer-to-peer bitcoin network without the need for intermediaries.

Transactions are verified by network nodes through cryptography and recorded in a publicly distributed ledger called a blockchain.

There are many bitcoin supporters who believe that digital currency is going to be a big part of all our futures.

Investing in Bitcoin

Although it is not backed by any government or central bank, bitcoin can be exchanged for traditional currencies; in fact, its exchange rate against the dollar attracts potential investors and traders.

Indeed, one of the primary reasons for the growth of digital currencies like bitcoin is that they can act as an alternative to national fiat money and traditional commodities like gold as a hedge against inflation.

Risk and Reward

The price of Bitcoin is very volatile and it is seen as an aggressive investment. This makes it interesting for people who are comfortable with a lot of risk but not to others. Taxation of Bitcoin can also be a problem in Japan, but not with our tax efficient international investment solutions.

Through Argentums Active Portfolio Management Service we are able to introduce Bitcoin and blockchain funds as an additional part of a lump sum structured investment portfolio. This allows you to invest in cryptocurrencies in a tax efficient manner as well as diversifying your overall risk.
