FAQs

You’ve got questions. We’ve got the answers
to help you along the way.

UNest Crypto provides family and friends a simple way to invest in leading cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin and Ethereum. This new offering is available to members on the UNest Plus plan.

We created UNest Crypto to serve parents and guardians that want their children to gain direct exposure to the demand for digital currency. At this time, UNest Crypto is available to most US residents. Notable exceptions include New York, where access is limited.

With a UNest Plus plan, you will gain access to a new crypto account that will hold any crypto investments you make separate from your core UNest Investment account. Our team has designed the UNest app experience so that depositing and withdrawing money is nearly identical to your current experience.

At launch, UNest Plus members will be able to invest in Bitcoin, Solana, and other popular digital assets available in the UNest app. Availability of particular cryptocurrencies may vary, depending on a member’s location. Before investing in a particular cryptocurrency, we encourage you to learn more about each project by reviewing the ‘about’ and ‘key stats’ sections, as well as researching the risks and benefits of each project.

UNest Plus members will automatically have the ability to sign up for UNest Crypto. UNest Core members will be able to access UNest Crypto by upgrading their account to UNest Plus ($5.98/mo).

No, we do not charge fees or commissions for individual purchases of cryptocurrencies. However, our partner Apex Crypto charges a spread or markup on any buy or sell order submitted, in order to cover the costs associated with facilitating the transaction. UNest receives a revenue share from Apex as compensation for licensing our software to Apex Crypto.

Is investing in crypto risky?

Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum are known for experiencing rapid increases and decreases in price (i.e. volatility). Uncertainty surrounding future price movements, demand for crypto, expansion of use of each project’s technology and government regulation drives investors in and out of the market (resulting in the price going up and down). Your goals and preferences as an investor will ultimately decide whether an investment in crypto is right for you.

When will this be available?

While we have not yet announced an official launch date for UNest Crypto, we invite you to join our waitlist. Stay tuned!

Does UNest hold my crypto investments?

UNest does not hold your crypto investments. We have partnered with Apex Crypto LLC, which executes all orders for cryptocurrencies and serves as the custodian of any funds you add to your UNest Crypto account. UNest does not currently provide a crypto wallet.

How is cryptocurrency taxed?

We encourage you to consult a tax professional about your personal financial situation. That said, crypto transactions are taxed similarly to property transactions. If you buy crypto using the UNest app and hold that crypto, the transaction will not be taxed until you realize a capital gain or loss. In the event that you sell crypto for a gain, the IRS will consider this a taxable event. However, if you sell crypto for a loss, then you could be entitled to a tax deduction. UNest does not provide tax advice. We suggest talking to a tax professional about your specific situation.

Will I get a tax document?

If your accounts require a tax document, UNest and Apex Crypto will provide you with a 1099. These are typically provided in the first few months of the following year.

Can I transfer my crypto account to and from UNest?

If a UNest member decides that they want to sell a portion or all of their crypto investment, the resulting cash will be automatically deposited in your UNest brokerage account. From there, you can withdraw that cash. Currently, you cannot transfer your crypto holdings directly from your UNest Crypto account (to an application like Coinbase or a wallet like Metamask).

Where can I learn more about crypto?

Visit the ‘Learn’ tab inside the UNest app to access more content about the ever-evolving crypto industry.

Are the Crypto accounts UTMA’s/UGMA’s?

UNest Crypto accounts are not UTMA/UGMA’s. They are individual brokerage accounts in your name and are treated as such for tax,reporting and legal purposes.
