If you do not want to erode your Bitcoin investment, just top it up with some more Bitcoin to cover for the custody fees.
Depending on your jurisdiction, you might need to include your Bitcoin holdings in your tax statement. CheckSig is not a withholding agent and does not provide tax advisory services. We will, however, be happy to introduce you to our network of independent tax advisors with specific crypto know-how. We also simplify the filling out of your tax statement by providing you with a Crypto Dossier. Your Crypto Dossier is the complete documentation of all your operations such as transfers and withdrawals, sales and purchases. We will take care of its compilation and all the calculations ourselves. More details on pricing here.
As of today, we provide custody for Bitcoin only. So far, all our investments, innovation, and effort have been focused on Bitcoin, as it is the only crypto-asset whose protocol allows us to provide you with truly unparalleled security.
