OKX Ventures and Neptune Mutual Launch First OKX Cover Pool
OKX Ventures, the venture arm of world-leading cryptocurrency platform OKX, and crypto hedging protocol Neptune Mutual today announced a partnership to deliver OKX’s first-ever cover pool. The decentralized cover solution will be listed on Neptune Mutual’s P2P cover marketplace, which offers protection against hacks and attacks in DeFi, CeFi, and metaverse protocols.

OKX’s cover pool gives users who are risk-averse or subject to hedging requirements for custody risk the ability to purchase covers, the price of which will be determined by supply and demand. OKX users will also have the opportunity to be an LP for the cover pool and earn cover fee incomes.

Neptune Mutual’s parametric cover models are user friendly for cover purchasers, given the hassle-free payout process upon incident resolution. For LPs, better liquidity and principal capital stability are provided, given cover pools in Neptune Mutual are denominated in USDC. Investments and yield are all made in USDC terms, and proof of deposit tokens (PODs) are fungible yield-bearing tokens that can be traded via DEXs, in case LPs miss their regular redemption window.

“As a global leader in crypto, OKX prioritizes platform security and strives to offer the best possible risk management solutions,” said Jeff Ren, head of OKX Ventures. “Traditional insurers are still rather conservative towards underwriting for crypto users, leaving a gap that decentralized and on-chain P2P solutions like OKX’s cover pool can fill.”

“This is another step in our mission to make parametric insurance available to every crypto asset owner,” said Binod Nirvan, CEO and founder of Neptune Mutual. “We are glad to be the first one offering this risk mitigation tool for the millions of users on OKX.”

OKX Ventures has been an early backer in Neptune Mutual’s technology, as part of a commitment to supporting projects that will drive crypto adoption. The integration of Neptune Mutual’s cover pool solution into the OKX ecosystem will offer a new way to hedge against risk, appealing to investors and traders seeking advanced protection.
