But that $100 in fun money could grow to a significant percentage of your total investments, sometimes overnight. Sorry to be a downer, but YOLO — so make a plan for your crypto in the event you pass away.
Crypto accounts aren’t like traditional investment accounts. They can be more vulnerable to security issues, and you generally can’t name a beneficiary. For example, if you store your crypto on a physical device at home and a few friends know your key — a password of sorts that grants access to a crypto wallet — one of those so-called friends could wander into your house and steal your crypto as easily as they could walk offwith your great-grandmother's diamond earrings. Or, if you shared the keys with no one, your crypto is lost forever.
It’s important to understand how to safely store your crypto and communicate your wishes with your loved ones, just like you would with any other valuable asset.
