Are purchases and sales of bitcoin within a KeyKeeper IRA by Unchained tax-free?

Our product is designed so that tax is postponed to when funds are withdrawn from the IRA itself (and even then, in the case of a Roth IRA, there should be no tax if the necessary requirements are met). If you have questions about the tax consequences specific to you, you should consult with your tax advisor, as Unchained Capital cannot give tax advice. The Unchained product is not designed for frequent traders. It cannot hold cash, only bitcoin. Bitcoin in the IRA is only converted to cash if you are doing an outbound rollover to another IRA provider.
