Is a Cryptocurrency Will for me?

“If something were to happen to me, my family wouldn’t know how to access my cryptocurrency. With a Cryptocurrency Will I don’t need to worry about this anymore as it is now taken care of.”

Matt

Crypto Investor

“I’m just getting started investing. I’m saving up for a deposit on a house and I really haven’t got much cryptocurrency yet, but still, if I died then I’d rather it went to my family than it be lost forever”

Grace

New to Crypto

“We’re seeing more of our clients having cryptocurrency as part of their estate. With a Cryptocurrency Will, we can execute our clients' wishes, but we don’t have the burden of acting as key custodians.”

Beth

Professional Executor

“A few people in my family have invested in Cryptocurrency over the years. As they all now have Cryptocurrency Wills, I know I will easily have access to their cryptocurrency should anything happen to them.”

Coincover helps your loved ones retrieve your cryptocurrency when you die.

Why a Cryptocurrency Will matters

$1Bn Inaccessible

On April 16, 2018, Matthew Mellon of the Mellon banking fortune died.

To his grave, he also took the location of the keys to a rather large amount of Ripple coin (XRP), another popular type of cryptocurrency.

Before his death he held an estimated $1 billion in Ripple, but without the keys none of the Ripple coin can be accessed

Priceless rubbish

James Howells, a cryptocurrency miner in the early days of Bitcoin gathered 7,500 Bitcoins stored on a hard drive.

In 2013 he accidentally threw the hard drive away, along with access to his Bitcoins. The keys, along with all his other trash, ended up at a local dump.

In 2017 at the peak of Bitcoin value, his buried Bitcoin treasure would have been worth around $150,000,000.

$135m taken to the grave

In December 2018, Gerald Cotton, CEO of QuadrigaCX, Canada’s largest cryptocurrency exchange died unexpectedly.

Unfortunately for QuadrigaCX’s customers, Mr. Cotton was the only person who was able to access the customer private keys.

As a result over US$135M in customer funds held in safe keeping was deemed inaccessible, locked on the blockchain forever more.
