Contract Vault


April 9 — Zug, Switzerland

Contract Vault and Eternitas are delighted to announce a privileged partnership agreement.

Based in Crypto Valley, Contract Vault is the leading platform for customisable legal and smart contracts and legal tech services.

Eternitas is the award-winning French-German startup, developing blockchain-based solutions for estate planning.

Besides providing mutual support for the development of their respective platforms and in particular for the smart contract-based implementations of last wills and donations, the two companies will work together to expand their partnership network to include insurance companies, family offices and fintech companies in order to encourage smart contract adoption.

Businesses and individuals have so far had to rely on legal intermediaries and inefficient, paper-based processes for estate planning. It’s uneconomical and unoptimised for customers, and of low value to legal professionals. Contract Vault and Eternitas will undertake to provide an accessible solution for recording the last will and testament of individuals using blockchain technology.

Wills can be created using Contract Vault’s powerful, customisable templates and linked to smart contract code using Ricardian contracts. Once the smart contract code is triggered — either automatically or semi-automatically — funds, assets and rights are distributed to the beneficiaries per the terms of the will and without human intervention.

Contract Vault and Eternitas are in the vanguard of the digitisation of asset transfer; and in the near future, we expect this process to not only include cryptocurrencies, but also all kinds of tokenised assets; including gold, real estate and company shares.

Contract Vault’s partnership with Eternitas is just one of several for the Swiss-based startup, which also counts Laux Lawyers, Validity Labs and ChainSecurity among its growing ecosystem of partners and content providers.

The Contract Vault Platform is powered by the Vault Token.
