An Introduction to Cryptoassets for Private Client Advisers
In 2009 Bitcoin was created and has since led to thousands of different digital currencies and digital crowdfunding projects.
Even though this digital cryptoasset experiment is still in its infancy, transactions using the new tokens have been substantial, with billions of dollars worth being transferred daily.
Trustees, executors and other fiduciaries will soon find it necessary to understand the technology underpinning the operation of these assets and the systems in which they function.
There is a new language that accompanies them, with words like ‘crypto’, ‘tokens’, ‘blockchain’, ‘ICO’, ‘protocol’, ‘tokenomics’ and ‘fiat’.
People who feel comfortable using cryptoassets will want to settle such assets on trust and gift them by will and practitioners will need to be able to comprehend the frameworks in which they operate and recognise them and the subtlety of their existence.
During the course you will learn about identifying, buying, selling, administering and planning for cryptoassets. The course is aimed at private client professionals, trustees, personal representatives and lasting attorneys.
