Other Updates

Marketing and Communications Hub

The Marketing Hub is making progress on our Roadmap, Charter, and Implementation plan. We expect this to publish a ‘Roadmap for Mutant Marketing’ next week.

HELP WANTED: The Marketing Hub is looking for enthusiastic members interested in working as a Nexus Writer or Nexus Community Ambassador. Any members can contact BraveNewDeFi on Discord or Twitter.

Nexus Community Ambassadors are active members in another protocol such as Yearn Finance and would like to represent Nexus Mutual in their protocol community. By evangelizing Nexus in these communities you will be able to directly drive cover sales, and the addition of new protocols to Nexus Mutual. Together, we can increasing our impact, and ensure that more members of the crypto community are protected with cover.

Engineering

On the engineering side, we’re thinking through the core mechanics of the protocol, with the main goal being to make it easily composable in a defi-native way. The main deliverables will be to:

  • Move the cover pricing fully onchain, and make it dynamic
  • Implement new covers system, with a pay-as-you-go mechanism embedded
  • Implement new staking, with delegation available by default, streamed rewards, and more

Integrations are already available via our newly updated “distributor contract” - a wrapper around the Nexus Mutual cover system that allows a smart contract to buy cover on behalf of end users. Docs & code can be found here: smart-contracts/DISTRIBUTOR.md at master · NexusMutual/smart-contracts · GitHub.

For those looking to partner with Nexus Mutual, we’re actively looking to support any interesting integrations via our community grants.

Our brand new financial dashboard is now live on dune analytics: Dune Analytics. It has been built by Elias Simos, sponsored via the community grants. (https://twitter.com/eliasimos/status/1409508530420338691?s=20)

This dashboard makes it easier than ever to understand the financials behind the mutual, including assets and liabilities.

Investment Hub

We’re still looking for two additional members to join our investment hub as board members. You can find out more about our investment hub here:

Love finance? Crazy about insurance? Dream about DCF’s? Drool over juicy yields? Obsess over asset–liability mismatches?

Apply by contacting @Rei on Discord, or on our forum.
