What is a Digital Asset?

A digital asset can be a wide variety of electronic records and files that may be stored online, on mobile devices, or on personal computers. 

May include:

  • Social media accounts—Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, etc.
  • Email or other online communication—Gmail, Yahoo Mail, etc.
  • Photos or videos—iCloud, Flickr, etc
  • Airline loyalty points—AA, Southwest, etc.
  • Digital music or artwork

May not include:

  • Underlying financial assets. For example, electronic bank account statements may be a Digital Asset, but the funds held in the bank account are not considered a Digital Asset.
  • Ownership of Cryptocurrency. The account access (i.e. Coinbase) may be considered a Digital Asset, but the asset itself (Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc) most likely will be considered part of the estate.
