BUILDING BLOCKS OF BLOCKCHAIN:
PRIMER ON CRYPTOCURRENCY FOR ESTATE PLANNERS
Sponsored by Argent and Texas Bank and Trust
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 first 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. This presentation then addresses planning and specific areas of consideration, such as fiduciary issues related to access to digital assets, transfers, trust funding, custody and titling, which highlight the importance and the need for proper planning and drafting. The characterization of cryptocurrencies as “property” and not currency for purposes of taxation and other regulatory considerations round out the discussion while weaving in areas of planning opportunities and challenges. Abigail Rosen Earthman is a member of Winstead’s Wealth Preservation Practice Group. Abigail handles federal gift and estate tax litigation against the Internal Revenue Service across the country, as well as state fiduciary and probate controversy work in Texas courts. She is also counsel to clients nationally regarding complex estate administration and litigation and audit risk minimization.
