The Intersection of Estate Planning and Crypto
Mainstream interest in cryptoasset markets exploded in 2021. Bitcoin and many other cryptoassets increased more than tenfold over the past 12 months and NFTs (non-fungible tokens) went from little-known niche to a regular topic in social media and on the nightly news. The headlines and national attention to cryptoassets attracted billions of dollars of new investment, led heavily by traditional investors looking for outsized returns.
Many questions remain regarding estate planning and trust administration when cryptoassets are involved. In this presentation we will visit the intersection of estate planning and crypto, with focus on estate planning strategies that address the tax treatment of crypto, advanced planning strategies and considerations when a client holds crypto, trust and entity funding challenges, and trust administration issues to be addressed for the client who holds - or who someday may hold - crypto in their estate.
Registration for in-person attendance will close at 5 pm on Monday, February 14th.
If you do not feel well, or have been exposed to Covid, we ask that you stay home and attend the live webinar.
