ELM Legal Launch Cryptocurrency Wills Service

ELM Legal Services has partnered with cryptocurrency protection experts CoinCover to offer a brand new will writing service.

Cryptocurrency is an increasingly popular method of online payment. It is best understood as a form of currency that exists as a digital asset, with no paper or coins. One of the main benefits is is is secured in such a way that it is near impossible to forge or double-spend. Cryptocurrency, the most well known is Bitcoin, operate within blockchain technology. Blockchain is a method of ensuring the integrity of the data, essentially decentralising the storage of the data in a way which means that no single organisation or individual (like a bank) can have overall control.

Each computer that is connected to the blockchain has a unique version of the data, not just a copy, which prevents the opportunity to manipulate or alter the data without detection.

But because the currency exists solely online, it is susceptible to hacking and it is estimated that hackers stole $4 Billion of cryptocurrency in 2019 alone, up from $1.7 Billion in 2018.
