Transmission & Crypto: Paymium and Legapass join forces

Paymium and Legapass join forces to secure the transmission of your wealth 3.0 and eradicate crypto-asset escheat 🙌

Paris, May 15, 2024

With the growing adoption of crypto-currencies and the SEC's recent acceptance of the first Bitcoin ETFs, crypto-currencies are set to attract even more investors in the coming weeks. Today, over 11% of French people already hold crypto-currencies1 and this figure is likely to grow in the coming months, driven by the Bitcoin halving phenomenon.

Despite several billion euros worth of crypto-assets held by the French2, notaries still find themselves at a loss when it comes to including digital assets in an estate. With this in mind, Legapass, a leader in estate planning and digital inheritance, accredited by the Conseil Supérieur du Notariat, has joined forces with Paymium, a pioneering digital asset management platform accredited PSAN by the AMF. Their shared ambition: to solve the problems associated with the identification, recovery and transmission of crypto-assets in the event of death. This partnership represents an unprecedented opportunity for the notarial world, as there is currently no solution for identifying and ensuring the distribution of these complex assets to heirs.

This association is the logical next step for Legapass, which is committed to providing the French with a complete estate planning service, including the detection and recovery of all asset classes. It's a commitment that also serves the interests of notaries, who can now be supported from start to finish during the settlement of an estate, in order to identify, assemble and share digital assets for the benefit of heirs.

On the Paymium side, the platform's customers will now be able to use the Legapass safe to facilitate the transmission of their digital assets in the event of death. This initiative positions Paymium as the world's first crypto-asset exchange platform to offer a full range of services, from initial investment to the transmission of assets to heirs in the event of need.
