Are you including crypto in your retirement plan?

"To pay for the funeral, I have to work after I die." I overheard this remark from someone who looked like time was not on his side.

What's taking place? When are people so thinly spread that they believe that they can't even afford to die? I know that wage growth challenges are depressing, and inequality in income is making headlines almost daily. However, we still live in a country where employment and opportunities are alive and well.

There's a need to thoroughly analyze why this is for people living paycheck to paycheck. It's time to make a shift if the incoming money doesn't cover all living expenses. This implies that it is appropriate to shift where revenue reaches or exceeds the cost of living or an improvement in sources of income.

In a simplified example, one paper I read drives the point home. How to accumulate capital when earning the minimum wage was explained in the report. Typically, wealth and minimum wage are not in the same sentence, but logistics were noted on a fundamental level in the article. The magic is in living where a minimum wage helps each month to save leftover money. They need to live in an environment where their basic needs are affordable, for anyone earning the minimum wage. Along with transportation and property taxes, housing must be inexpensive. In a fancy suburb, a minimum wage will not afford anyone the same lifestyle that a $100,000/year wage earner could not afford to spend in Beverly Hills.

Income Sources

The big event on the retirement scale is that revenue exceeds necessary living expenses. The resources of each person must be accounted for and contrasted with the cost of living that one anticipates.

Traditionally, pension, 401(k)/IRAs, and investments are the three legs of the pension easel. However, these articles or traditional finance tend to ignore the crypto space.

A great way to put money away and decrease your existing taxable income is to take advantage of the company's pension fund or 401(k) plan. Make sure the matched sum is met and don't. Put as much as you can aside and invest.

Asset Allocation

For the past three years, I have been factoring in crypto into my retirement planning as well. I have been splitting my salary as follows:

  • Pension fund - 40%
  • Passive EFTs - 40%
  • Crypto - 15%
  • Cash - 5%

Over time, I do intend to increase my crypto asset allocation to 20-25%. I have more trust in maths and decentralization than centralized governments who potentially want to get their hands on our pensions.

Thank you for reading and hope you have a good rest of the day!

I started writing for crypto because of my lack of retirement savings.

I have 25+ years to watch HIVE work some miracles.

It's amazing to have a platform like Hive & Leo that provides opportunities for people to grow their wealth in the form of crypto.

I think there are a fair few people, most of them in the West, who are looking at Hive as part of their long term game plan, and even retirement plan,

It certainly makes the experience of being on here more pleasant, then you don't have to worry about the money so much, you can just sort of watch your account power grow over time and almost forget about the value!

Having crypto more generally as part of a retirement fund I think is a sound move!

This is more or less what I was about to write so no need to repeat that comment.

Everything I make on Hive and Leo stays in the ecosphere and I only intend to ever move anything out of it once it's enough to retire.

Hell yeah! Crypto is one of the crucial parts of the retirement plan! Waiting for someone else to think about my retirement has no sense, so we have to think about ourselves!

Great post and some nice tips!
