A major Breakthrough for Cryptocurrency Adoption

With $432 million in crypto stolen between January and April of this year alone, a sense of inertia has prevailed in the space when it comes to leaving large amounts of collateral on even the most reliable of platforms. 

A major innovation in cryptocurrency coverage offerings, led by Nexus Mutual, has allowed the industry to take great strides forward in terms of user asset protection.

A big step forwards in making the industry safer and increasing adoption.”
