How InsurAce Helps DeFi Users Cover Their Positions
InsurAce currently covers over $340 million worth of assets in DeFi, and the protocol has paid out over $11 million in claims to date.
There are several coverage policies that users can obtain from InsurAce that offer protection against:
In the event that a user needs to exercise a claim on their cover, they can begin the claim assessment process to recoup lost funds.
As a decentralized cover protocol, users can earn APY on InsurAce by depositing tokens to participate in underwriting mining. Since these tokens help pay for claims, anyone who participates in underwriting mining is exposed to the risk of helping pay a claim in return for mining rewards during the duration of their deposit.
How to Buy Smart Contract Vulnerability Coverage for Hubble
Users can currently purchase smart contract cover for Hubble at a monthly cost of 0.37% of their coverage amount. To begin, first navigate to the Buy Covers page on InsurAce.

Never Too Safe as DeFi Hacks Grow More Common in 2022
According to Chainalysis, nearly $2 billion has been stolen through decentralized finance (DeFi) hacks this year alone. In addition, every week, there is a major news story about another major hack, often for millions of dollars stolen at a time.
Hubble has been audited multiple times and has put a bug bounty in place to reduce the chances of facing an exploit. The protocol has also instituted safeguards like net outflow caps to ensure any kind of exploit is limited in scope, recognizing that this is DeFi, and anything can happen!
The idea that bad actors could find a way to exploit Hubble's smart contracts is a reality, even though the code has been tested and audited extensively. As long as there is a non-zero chance of a hack, Hubble will work with InsurAce to protect users against the fallout of this nightmare coming true.
