Type of Web3 Companies That Need Insurance

DeFi (Decentralized Finance)

Offers financial services like lending and asset management without traditional banks, but comes with risks like smart contract bugs and market swings.

DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations)

Operate democratically online, using smart contracts for collective decision-making and managing digital assets.

BaaS (Blockchain as a Service)

Allows businesses to easily build and use blockchain applications without needing major technical expertise.

DEXs (Decentralized Exchanges)

Enable direct peer-to-peer cryptocurrency trading without relying on banks or brokers.

Crypto Mining and Minting

Creates new cryptocurrency units, but can be risky due to complex technical processes.

Web3 Identity Verification

Uses blockchain technology to give users control over their identity data, offering increased privacy and security compared to traditional methods.

And More

Web3 insurance goes beyond DeFi and DAOs. NFT marketplaces, play-to-earn games, metaverse platforms, and Web3 infrastructure providers all handle valuable assets and data.

Case Studies

1 1

Smart Contract Exploit

Smart Contract Exploit

A DeFi project launched a lending platform powered by what was believed to be an innovative smart contract. Unfortunately, a critical bug was overlooked during the audit, allowing a hacker to exploit this vulnerability and steal millions in cryptocurrency from users. This resulted in a significant loss of reputation and trust for the DeFi platform, financial losses for investors, and the looming threat of lawsuits. With Web3 insurance that includes smart contract coverage, investors could potentially recover some of their lost funds, subject to the terms of their policy.

2 1

NFT Marketplace Hack

NFT Marketplace Hack

A well-known NFT marketplace was hit by a cyberattack, leading to hackers stealing valuable NFTs, including rare digital artwork worth millions. This breach resulted in users leaving the platform due to security worries and potential legal challenges from those affected. Web3 insurance for the marketplace could mitigate financial losses by covering stolen NFTs up to a limit and assist in managing reputational damage and legal costs.

3 1

Play-to-Earn Game Scam

Play-to-Earn Game Scam

A buzzworthy new play-to-earn game collapses in a “rug pull” scam, with developers vanishing after collecting significant funds from players via in-game purchases and NFT sales. This leaves players out of pocket and damages the game’s and industry’s reputation. Emerging Web3 insurance policies, though rare, may offer some protection against such scams, potentially reimbursing players’ investments or aiding in legal efforts against the deceitful developers.

4 1

Metaverse Platform Disruption

Metaverse Platform Disruption

During a major event, a popular metaverse platform is hit by a denial-of-service (DoS) attack, causing server overloads and blocking user access. This results in lost revenue and significant user frustration. The platform’s reputation takes a hit, and businesses within the metaverse face revenue losses from the event disruption. Web3 insurance offering business interruption coverage could compensate for the lost revenue, supporting the platform’s recovery and operational restoration efforts.
