Creating an Estate Plan for Digital Assets 

The importance of having an estate plan for digital assets has never been greater. With traditional, liquid assets like money and insurance policies, passing on these assets at the owner’s death can happen quite seamlessly with designations like beneficiary, payable on death, and transferable on death. While these financial institutions have entire departments dedicated to ascertaining the assets of the deceased, what about digital assets? Currently, the digital asset space lacks robust customer support teams, beneficiary options for ease of transfer upon death, or even physical office locations for customers to visit. 

Having an estate plan that accurately articulates the scope and storage of one’s digital assets is vital to properly pass these assets upon death. Without a proper estate plan in place, these assets might be left untouched because the decedent’s loved ones know very little about the digital asset space or may even be unaware of their existence. 

With a  skilled estate planner well-versed in Bitcoin, cryptocurrency, and digital asset space, you can safely incorporate these advanced assets into your overall wishes. The digital asset space is a rapidly changing one, so it’s crucial to hire a professional who understands the space and its future trajectory.

How an Estate Plan for Digital Assets Protects Your Loved Ones 

The safeguarding of digital assets often requires passwords or seed phrases. While many individuals understand the need to protect sensitive information, it is common that safely providing this information to loved ones in the event of a death is an afterthought. 

With the digital asset space progressing daily, the horror stories of losing access to these assets are becoming more prevalent. Ensuring one’s passwords or seed phrases are secure from acts of God, such as a house fire, hurricane, flood, and other natural disasters, is critical. 

As technology and the digital asset space progresses, private companies and financial institutions will likely develop and offer built-in succession plans. Hiring an estate planner that is up to date with current and upcoming developments is crucial to ensure your digital assets are as secure as possible. 

Succession Planning for Digital Assets 

One of the most important aspects of planning around digital assets is often the most overlooked. It is quite common for one spouse to be very educated and entrenched in how the technology around cryptocurrency or Bitcoin works, but the other spouse is unaware of these intricacies. 

It may sound counterintuitive to some, but at some point, a loved one or trusted fiduciary will need to be able to access one’s passwords or seed phrases to transfer these assets. Hiring a savvy estate planner can help explain to beneficiaries what these assets are, how they function, and how they are transferred and stored.

    Mr Crow and his staff are amazing! Especially the person assigned to my account, so a special thank you to Callie!

    Today my wife and I completed (at Crow Estate Planning and Probate) our Will, Living Will, Power of Attorney for Finance and Medical. As a Tennessee CPA for over 20 years (now retired), I’d like to leave this review so that others may benefit. Our experience rating with with Crow Estate Planning and Probate is EXCELLENT. Our legal team was Kyle Shannon, Callie and Julia. This team was competent, courteous, and professional. They made a potentially complex experience “easy” despite multiple minor trusts involved. The charge for professional services rendered was very reasonable. My wife (Denise) and I would like to thank Kyle and his team (Callie and Julia) for a great experience that exceeded our expectations. I will return for legal needs and I will refer family and others to Kyle, Callie and Julia.
