NAEPC Webinar: Building Blocks of Blockchain: Planning with Bitcoin & Cryptocurrency
Cryptocurrency has created a lot of buzz – both hype and skepticism. Although cryptocurrency has been in existence since 2008, it is a cutting edge issue in estate planning. Due to its technological, digital nature, cryptocurrency presents interesting and uncertain tax and practical considerations in planning with this special type of asset. This presentation will provide background on blockchain, the technology underlying cryptocurrencies, and the evolution of cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, in an attempt to demystify the technical features and mechanics of both blockchain and cryptocurrencies, which generally are misunderstood.
