What is the Core Team Working On?

  1. We have a large focus on distribution, building out integrations as well as what BraveNewDeFi mentioned on the Ambassador program.

  2. On the engineering side, there is a lot going on, we’re in the later stage of design for a big upgrade which we’re calling Nexus V2. This will include big enhancements to pricing, cover flexibility, staking and claims.

Investment Hub

The investment hub is making fantastic progress on expanding the team to bring in diverse opinions and to better allocate the capital pool.

  1. We’ve spoken to everyone interested in joining the investment committee and we are finishing rounding out the team. Very exciting to see the number and quality of people who wanted to contribute.

  2. Continuing due diligence process on assets and managers behind the scenes, assessing options for a next investment from the capital pool. This takes time, and it’s critical that we don’t rush and take the time necessary to perform proper diligence to protect the assets of our members.

  3. Working on investment strategy and review process as per forum post on roadmap - including getting contributions and input from new members.


A short one this week, but there is a TON of stuff going on, there just aren’t many concrete updates for this week. If you’re interested in being more involved with the Mutual, don’t hesitate to reach out to me or any other active community member. We’re always happy to point you in the right direction!
