Paymium and Legapass join forces to eradicate crypto-asset escheatment

The increase in digital asset ownership reshuffles the estate planning deck.

While crypto-assets have undeniably grown in popularity in recent years, investors, like notaries, have until now lacked a comprehensive and secure solution to identify them and ensure their simple, secure transmission.

It is in this context that Paymium and Legapass join forces to combat escheatment of this asset class.

6.5 million French people, 12% of the population, currently own crypto-assets (compared with 9.6% last year - an increase of more than 25% over the previous year).

Global investment in crypto-assets in 2023 is estimated at between 32.5 and 42.5 billion eurosThis represents a significant proportion of French savings (3% for the average French person).

Caution is still the order of the day, since the majority of crypto-asset investors, 54% invest no more than 10% of their overall savings. But for the less cautious, and there are 10% of them, this represents more than 50% of their savings.
