When people pass on nowadays, their last testament and will can often be confusing as it no longer only reflects the physical world but a digital legacy as well. UK startup Planned Departure allows the deceased to securely store their Bitcoin and Twitter followers for their loved ones or non-profit organizations.

Virtual currencies and other assets found online can be organized through Planned Departure. The digital legacy of Planned Departure's customers -- from their smart wallets to social media passwords -- will be in safe hands and help loved ones deal with affairs.

This service indicates how preparing for the afterlife will look different as technology continues to change our lives at a rapid pace. Instead of just a physical existence to worry about, it now extends to the digital one as well.
