Alt Coins Are Back on the Menu!

January 30, 2018

 Athena Investor Services is proud to now support the buying or selling of: 

Bitcoin (BTC/XBT)  Litecoin (LTC) 
Bitcoin Cash (BCH)  Neo (NEO) 
Ethereum (ETH)  Ripple (XRP) 
Ethereum Classic (ETC)  …and more to come! 


We do apologize for the unavailability of these assets last month as our suppliers were strongly affected by the high crypto demand. We do expect to continue with these assets for the foreseeable future and slowly add new ones as we can. 

What is the minimum purchase amount for alternative crypto assets? 

As with Bitcoin, the minimum per asset is $10,000, either to buy or to sell. 


What if the asset I want is not listed here? 

While we cannot provide direct access to every crypto coin or token out there, we do expect to expand our list going forward. The good news is that it’s usually much easier to acquire the asset you want after you purchase any of the above currencies first, especially Bitcoin, Ethereum, or Litecoin. 

Once you have BTC, LTC, or ETH you can use them with an external exchange site to trade for your desired asset. This process ranges from very easy and quick to more complicated depending upon the asset, quantities, and desired pricing. Contact us for help determining your options.

Do I need a separate wallet to receive each of these assets? 

You do need a wallet capable of supporting each of the assets you want to acquire, but they aren’t all necessarily different apps or devices. We recommend that AIS customers use hardware wallets whenever possible, particularly the Ledger and Trezor products. Both of those hardware wallets support multiple different assets and possibly all you are looking to own in one solution! 

Otherwise, there are some software multicoin wallets that may support the asset you are looking for: Exodus and Coinomi, especially. Other assets will need their own dedicated wallets. Feel free to contact us for assistance in finding the best choice.
