On 4th September, BLOB of Oldham, England became the world's youngest Bitcoin investor. S/he is due to be born in April 2021 and reserves the right to change their name from BLOB at a later date. A brother and cousin, both aged under two years old, own holdings as well. OK. On to the serious bit. I'm looking to set up safe custodial cryptowallets to store these kids' holdings until around 18 years of age. It is important that these wallets are clearly the property of the child itself, and not part of the estate of an adult custodian who might not be around eighteen years from now. Has anybody got any experience of setting up a similar custodial wallet for a very young child? Any tips or pointers would be welcome. Any 'know your customer' sign-up could be fun. I guess we could upload the first scan! Thanks for any helpful suggestions.

According to Chainalysis, the number of 1–3 months old wallets that choose to store bitcoin has grown to 2.25 million, the highest level since February 2018. This is almost twice as much as six months ago, when the figure was 1.16 million. After the March collapse in prices, the curve grew almost parabolic, analysts say. “The data suggests that buying pressure on BTC is increasing and the supply available to buy is decreasing as new investors are likely to plan to hold onto the coins for a longer period,” concluded Philip Gradwell, economist at Chainalysis.
