Alpaca Finance Elaborates on Nexus Mutual Insurance Coverage on Binance Smart Chain

Users of the largest leverage farm protocol on BSC can now invest with ease of mind.

Protect Your Funds––Because You Can!

The full Nexus Mutual coverage is now available to any user on Alpaca Finance. All users can now take advantage of the premium insurance for any potential loss of funds on Binance Smart Chain (BSC). 

The Nexus Mutual Coverage available on Alpaca Finance will allow users to both buy personal coverage and/or earn rewards by providing cover for others. Alpaca urged the insurance coverage to all users on Aug. 23 via an official tweet

“In general, Nexus cover protects against loss of funds (i.e. loss of tokens), but not loss of value (a token’s price dropping),” says the official Alpaca document posted on August 22. “The coverage includes funds deployed in all sections of Alpaca Finance, so whether you’re lending, farming, grazing, or staking — you’ll be covered!”

Security is a crucial topic, and Alpaca’s dedication shows a seriousness that users should respect. Giving users the ability to protect their funds, Alpaca adds an extra feeling of surety for investors on the platform for all different DeFi activities. 

Alpaca Finance is one of a few BSC applications to use Nexus Mutual, and the protection offered should be more known in decentralized finance. The stigma of losing funds should be approached head-on by groups who can remedy the difficulties. 

The insurance does not cover all situations, so be sure to educate yourself about the coverage. 


How do you Buy Coverage? 

Getting coverage for your investments is no longer an exclusive opportunity. Whether you are lending, farming, grazing, or any of the great Alpaca Decentralized Finance (DeFi) activities, you can have insurance coverage for all your funds.

At this time, only BSC is supported for Nexus coverage.  Alpaca has made a straightforward process for any users to have ease of access. The insurance comes at a 2.6% yearly cost.

The first thing is to be sure you are a Nexus member, which requires a fee of about $5 (0.0020 ETH). Once you are a Nexus member, you can purchase a cover using a crypto wallet like Metamask. With certain caveats, users can pay for cover using ETH, DAI, or NXM using ERC-20 tokens.

Purchasing coverage requires a few easy steps:

First, fill out your “Get quote” details on the ‘Buy Cover’ page

Indicate your Cover Amount, Asset/Currency (ETH or DAI), and Cover Period

Generate a quote and perform the transaction using Metamask

For any coverage claims, users should wait at least 72 hours after the event has occurred before filing. The statute of limitations is just 35 days, so be ready to make a claim within a month of any incident. 

Staking and Mining

Users will also be able to provide for more than just themselves. First, users will also be able to stake the native $NXM token in up to 20 pools to cover the liquidity protection of other users. Aside from protecting other users, there will be the opportunity to provide collateral to the whole Alpaca platform. If you trust the Alpaca protocol and its security, you can begin earning rewards by providing protection. 

Non-Stop Protection

Despite leverage farming being one of the riskiest endeavors in the DeFi, Alpaca Finance continues to find ways for its users to engage with as much protection as possible. The latest edition of the Nexus Mutual Insurance Coverage allows users to engage as safely as they wish. Placing security as a top concern, especially as a leverage protocol, is a welcoming recognition from Alpaca. 

The need for safe DeFi is growing. Attacks and exploits continue to make headlines, and the Chairman of the SEC in the United States notably called DeFi a ‘wild west’ for investors in a speech last month. But as little action for user protection comes from governments, it is welcoming to see protocols developing organic protection mechanisms. This is what crypto is all about right? 

What is Alpaca Finance?

Alpaca Finance is the largest lending protocol that allows leveraged yield farming on Binance Smart Chain. It helps lenders earn safe and stable yields and offers borrowers undercollateralized loans for leveraged yield farming positions, vastly multiplying their farming principles and resulting profits.‌

Alpacas are a virtuous breed. That’s why Alpaca Finance prides itself on being a fair-launch project with no pre-sale, no investor, and no pre-mine. From the beginning, the project has always been a product built by the people, for the people––or as the Alpaca team likes to say: by the Alpacas, for the Alpacas.
