“A few days ago,a user of our platform notified me of the death of another user and wondered how the family could get hold of his tatcoin, To protect our users and serve as life insurance,we have the “Next of kin” Policy in ABiT Network, we are the first to have this in Africa” 

The Exchange activated this means in their website to protect their users and to also  serve as life insurance agents to their users. Situations like this has proved the potential of this additional service rendered by ABiT Network which is the first of it’s kind in Africa.

He continued the thread on twitter by sharing a similar and sad story of  his friend who had about 3 bitcoin in a  wallet and when the friend passed on. His family didn’t have access to his assets.

It was in respect to this incident that took place in 2018 that instigated the idea of the next of Kin Policy by Abit Network. The idea is to protect its Users and Families at any health challenge or even at death like this particular scenario.

By the activation of this policy in their exchange, if a user does not log into the Exchange for 12 months. The Exchange contacts the Next of Kin of that user via Email, the Next of Kin would have to submit a death certificate of the deceased user and all the assets would be transferred to the Next of kin.

Quick Facts: A person’s next of kin is that person’s closest living blood relative or relatives as announced by the person. In Some countries, such as the United States of America, there is a legal definition of “next of kin”.

In other countries, such as the United Kingdom, “next of kin” may have no legal definition and may not necessarily refer to blood relatives at all, and in this case being related by blood is not the only ties to the acronym.
