Official News

  1. Three new protocols are available on Nexus Mutual. You can stake on them and if cover is available, purchase it to protect your investment.
  • Alchemix V1
  • Convex Finance V1
  • Barnbridge Smart Yield V1
  1. A community proposal has passed and been implemented! We have increased staking leverage to 20x, from 15x. Also, any protocols at a 1x capacity multiple have been increased to 2x, which opens up additional cover capacity. Going forward, any new protocol will be listed at a capacity multiple of 2x, ensuring double the cover capacity.

We hope this will drive additional cover sales growth and will keep Nexus Mutual atop this industry.

  1. Reminder: Yield token cover has been listed and is now open for staking. This includes yDAI v2, yUSDC v2, ycrvstETH, 3pool and sETH. Yield Token Cover protects members against their yield bearing tokens de-pegging.

If your yield-bearing token de-pegs in value by more than 10%, you may claim up to 90% of your loss by swapping your yield-bearing token for a claim payment.

  • De-peg happens for more than four continuous hours.

  • Claims go through group claims assessment process where a full-member governance vote is held to determine if de-peg is valid.

  • Members who had cover live at the time of the de-peg can swap their yDAI tokens at a 90% return rate for the same underlying covered currency (in this example, USD/DAI).

  • Swap ratio is determined by the value of the token right before the de-pegging.

  • Members can choose to swap some or all of their yDAI for a 90% return rate.

  • After claim payout, cover period ends

More info on the types of cover can be found here: Types of Cover - Nexus Mutual
