There are technically no age restrictions that keep children from trading or mining cryptocurrencies.
However, popular crypto brokers like Coinbase and Paypal require users to be at least 18 years old in order to purchase crypto.
Note: Platforms must comply with government regulations that restrict children under 18 from buying crypto – or stocks for that matter – without the support of a parent.
Parents that buy popular cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Solana, for their children and hold the account can eventually transfer funds to their child.
UNest offers a way for parents to do this. With a UNest Plus membership, parents can buy and hold crypto for the benefit of their child and transfer funds once the child turns 18.
