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.
