Once you sign up to Mercury Redstone and connect your Bitvavo account, Mercury Redstone does the rest for you. From diversifying your investments to dollar cost averaging and rebalancing your portfolio on a monthly basis, Mercury Redstone aims to keep it as simple as possible for you.
Start with 2,500 euro
Many investment funds will set a minimum investment threshold that you have to cross to be eligible to invest, and that threshold can be as high as 100,000 euro. At Mercury Redstone you can participate from 2,500 euro, making it accessible to a much wider range of investors - big and small.
You keep control
Mercury Redstone can connect to your Bitvavo account, but they do not hold assets for you, as those stay on the Bitvavo platform. You can also enable or disable the trading 24/7 and terminate your relationship with Mercury Redstone with a day’s notice. Because you still hold the crypto yourself, you can participate in staking at Bitvavo while your assets are managed by Mercury Redstone.
