How To Create A Cryptocurrency NFT And Web3 Will

If you own crypto, NFTs and online assets you need to create a will!

Creating a will for your cryptocurrency assets is an important step to ensure that your digital assets are distributed according to your wishes after your passing.

Here are some steps you can follow to create a cryptocurrency will:

  1. List your cryptocurrency assets: Create a list of all your cryptocurrency assets, including the type of cryptocurrency, the amount, and the wallet or exchange where the assets are stored.
  2. Choose an executor: Select an executor for your will who is trustworthy and has experience with cryptocurrency. This person will be responsible for carrying out the instructions in your will.
  3. Determine beneficiaries: Decide who will receive your cryptocurrency assets and in what proportion. You can name individuals, organizations, or even create a trust to manage your assets on behalf of your beneficiaries.
  4. Include instructions for accessing your cryptocurrency: Your executor will need to access your cryptocurrency wallets or exchanges to distribute your assets to your beneficiaries. Include instructions on how to access your accounts, including any necessary passwords, keys, or recovery phrases.
  5. Sign and witness your will: Once you have created your cryptocurrency will, sign it in the presence of witnesses. Make sure to keep your will in a safe place and let your executor know where it is located.
  6. Update your will regularly: As your cryptocurrency assets and personal circumstances change, make sure to update your will to reflect these changes.

It’s important to note that the laws surrounding cryptocurrency inheritance and wills can vary by jurisdiction.

It’s a good idea to consult with a legal professional who has experience with cryptocurrency to ensure that your will is legally sound and enforceable.
