Neptune Mutual Launches veNPM

Neptune Mutual announces the official launch of the vote escrow NPM token (veNPM) on Arbitrum One.

Neptune Mutual, a decentralized insurance platform focused on cover protection for digital assets, is pleased to announce the launch of its vote escrow NPM token (veNPM) on Arbitrum One.

NPM hodlers can now lock their NPM tokens for veNPM tokens. Detailed instructions on how to do this can be found in a recent blog post “How to Lock NPM to Receive veNPM”. veNPM tokens offer a number of benefits relating to the allocation of NPM emissions from the Liquidity Gauge which will go live later in the month. Specifically, veNPM tokens grant increased voting power in Snapshot votes that determine the distribution of NPM emissions to cover pools, along with boosted NPM emissions for veNPM token holders.

This new feature provides a compelling incentive for liquidity providers (LPs) to contribute capital to cover pools, thereby expanding the marketplace’s capacity and enabling more cover policies to be sold.

Despite the DeFi’s sector’s assets surpassing 100 billion USD, less than 0.4% are protected against one of the biggest risks: smart contract vulnerabilities. Scaling the capacity and adoption of DeFi cover is crucial for safeguarding existing users and is likely a prerequisite for institutional involvement in DeFi.

Hodlers of NPM tokens can now enjoy generous NPM emissions by becoming LPs for cover pools. By locking NPM tokens to receive veNPM, NPM emission rewards can be boosted, and veNPM also grants holders greater influence in determining which cover pools receive NPM emissions.

The widespread practice of insuring Real World Assets (RWAs) underscores the importance of safeguarding tokenized RWAs against smart contract hacks. As the popularity of tokenizing RWAs grows, so do the associated risks. Consequently, the #DeFiInsurance category is expected to experience significant expansion, with Neptune Mutual’s NPM emissions for cover pool LPs playing a pivotal role in scaling the marketplace’s capacity to meet this demand.

Neptune Mutual’s cover marketplace provides parametric cover to mitigate against the consequences of smart contract hacks, and the NPM utility token plays a central role in both accessing features of the marketplace as well as enabling token holders to participate in governance, including incident resolution. Cover products are available for many leading DeFi projects..
