Memento mori! Inheritance management with Bitcoin

Spread the love


As the saying goes there are only two sure things in life.. Death and taxes (not very sure about the latter though). So, i have some stash of bitcoins that I have migrated from various exchanges to my ledger nano S. Now though, i am thinking of how to ensure that my wife and kids get my bitcoins in case I pass away… with one condition though… I don’t want to share the private key with my wife yet. I would like her to have it only in case I pass away. One idea that have crossed my mind is to actually split the private key written down on a piece of paper in 3 parts and store them physically in 3 deposit boxes in different banks. But this idea in the first glance seems like “overdoing” and unnecessarily expensive (at least USD 150-200 a month). On the other hand its quite some bitcoins that I would like to secure, so what would you guys propose as alternative methods for ensuring that they are not lost if I am dead or disabled?

Thank you!
