No Trust in Cryonics Trusts

Cryonicists are often encouraged to leave bequests and/or trusts to cryonics organizations. Given the questionable reputations of many influential persons in cryonics, and all the scandals revolving around cryonics organizations, how can anyone even consider this?

Judging by, what I consider to be a disproportionate amount of incompetence and corruption, in cryonics, I would not be surprised if money placed in any such trusts were to disappear, at some point in time, (and, perhaps, with future generations unaware anything has gone missing).

To anyone considering leaving money to cryonics research, I suggest hiring your own attorney and establishing your own trust, appointing a trustee you can rely on.
