Because cryptocurrencies offer various features not available in traditional assets, handling cryptocurrencies in traditional transactions can be tricky.
Vela Wood helps businesses and individuals who are using or are considering using blockchain or cryptocurrencies to identify and mitigate particular risks arising out of this new technology. We also serve as subject matter experts and advisors to other professionals, such as attorneys, financial planners, and investment advisors. We can provide counsel for blockchain’s application to the following areas:
Blockchain Strategy and Use Cases
Blockchain is not needed in every situation. We can review your business proposal and use of different technologies to see if blockchain is a proper fit, and then help you determine how to implement blockchain within your technology stack.
Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs)
We advise RIAs on how cryptocurrencies apply to their firm’s Code of Ethics and internal policies and procedures in order to ensure their regulatory compliance. In addition, we educate RIAs about cryptocurrencies in general, including the impact and opportunities of blockchain, so that RIAs can educate their clients, be knowledgeable on the subject, and decide whether to recommend investment, or invest on behalf of, clients.
Estate Planning & Generational Wealth
Vela Wood can help you plan for the effective transfer of cryptocurrencies at the time of death, while preserving security, sovereignty, and control.
We will work to ensure all assets are disclosed properly during divorce by asking the right questions, subpoenaing the correct third parties, and uncovering previously undisclosed assets.
