We are excited to share that InsurAce is partnering up with Alpha Finance to insure their Alpha Homora liquidity pools and yield farms. For a low premium, DeFi customers will be able to insure their stakes in Alpha Homora against smart contract breaches and other critical risks. Insuring through InsurAce also rewards customers with the native $INSUR token.
InsurAce is a decentralized insurance protocol that provides reliable and affordable DeFi insurance services to DeFi users with sustainable investment returns. Backed by leading investors including DeFiance Capital, ParaFi Capital, Alameda Research and Huobi DeFiLabs, InsurAce launched its mainnet on April 26th 2021 and subsequently its DeFi insurance services. Recent announcements have included partnerships with dHEDGE and Litentry.
Insuring stakes in liquidity pools and yield farms is becoming more and more important as DeFi continues to grow. In 2020 over $120M was hacked from DeFi protocols, and just recently (April 20th 2021) $66M was hacked from EasyFiNetwork.
Investors in Alpha Homora can insure their assets via the InsurAce app, whereby InsurAce will underwrite their assets on the Alpha Homora platform.
“We’re thrilled to announce a partnership with Alpha Finance and their product, Alpha Homora, our team has been working tirelessly to develop a product suitable to the calibre of partnerships like Alpha Finance. And we hope that with the partnership with InsurAce it will augment confidence in Alpha Homora’s users as they continue to grow.” Oliver Xie, Founder & Lead Developer of InsurAce.
In return for the insurance, they will also be rewarded with INSUR tokens resulting from the minting of staked assets in the form of INSUR tokens and the investment income from the investment pool that derives from insurance premiums and staked tokens. $INSUR tokens will be rewarded to insurance customers with an APY between 30–50% of their insurance premium.
By insuring through InsurAce, Alpha Homora investors will save up to 60% on their portfolio insurance against leading DeFi insurance competitors. The yield from the insurance premium helps to further increase the saving by using InsurAce.
