“The main reason that our response was effective was because of how timely and efficient it was,”

We published a user guide that provided clarity on Coverage specifications and Claims Eligibility. With a 7-day claims window, we set a goal to provide instant support to victims and send out a reassuring statement to the rest of the DeFi world.”

Thomas said:

“The decentralized voting was conducted by InsurAce’s community of Claims Assessors who hold and stake $INSUR Tokens. And after the Voting process, they approved a  total of 155 $UST de-peg Cover claims and 18 rejected as not ineligible in line with the  Stablecoin de-peg Cover terms and conditions.”

“In addition to improving our risk management strategies, we have put some plans in place to mitigate the losses incurred by stakers. Over the next 12 months, A fixed sum will be paid into an on-chain pool from which stakers can withdraw their compensation. The staggered approach  will help us ensure that we can help stakers to earn back some of their losses, whilst  maintaining healthy liquidity in the InsurAce protocol.” Thomson concluded.
