C2Legacy is a startup with the world’s first succession platform to be digitized and on a blockchain. It is designed to accurately and securely validate the death of a legacy holder using decentralized and/or digital death certificates. The goal is to make sure cryptocurrency ends up in the hands of the heirs it was intended for.
It is also meant to provide peace of mind to those legacy holders who want to be sure that the people they leave their assets to will receive them.
What is a Digital Legacy?
By definition, a legacy is something left behind for your heirs. This could be money or property left to children or other loved ones. A digital legacy refers to monies or property that are not tangible in nature. They exist instead on the Internet. Therefore a digital legacy is the right to digital money or property left to one’s heirs.
A digital legacy will be important in the years to come as more and more of our world is moving online as the years go on. Things like currency, stock, and other items of value are now digitized for the most part.
Even in the traditional banking system before the Internet was so ubiquitous, if someone left you a million dollars, you would never really see that pile of cash. Instead it would be referenced as a number on a statement.
Cryptocurrencies are becoming more and more popular both as a means of paying for things online as well as an investment. Few people think about the traditional protections for these investments because they are so new.
For example, if you have a stock account, chances are you have already selected who those assets would go to if you were to die. Same thing with a life insurance policy or even your Facebook account. As more of our lives become digitized, it’s important to consider who will control those aspects of our lives once we are gone.
How do I get started with C2Legacy?
The first step to getting started securing your digital and cryptocurrency legacy with C2Legacy is to participate in their token sale.

To be eligible to participate in the token sale you must participate through SAFT, must purchase from a US based account, and must also be an accredited and qualified investor with at least $200,000 in assets.
