Digital assets report

This special supplement brings together a selection of what STEP has produced over the last several years on the subject of digital assets, from articles to webinars, from public awareness campaigns to frameworks designed for practical use.

The concept of ‘assets’ has undergone a profound expansion in recent years. Traditional holdings have given way to a diverse array of intangible possessions, including cryptocurrencies, non-fungible tokens, digital photos and documents, Internet domains and other data.

For practitioners, the rate of change can be dizzying and the changes themselves hard to comprehend. Yet we must become familiar with these concepts if we are to remain effective guardians of our clients’ estates.

We hope readers will find the included resources, commentary and insights useful, and will be able to take this knowledge forward to better serve their clients.
