Polkacover, the first decentralized insurance marketplace for the Defi & Crypto ecosystem, has strategically partnered with Band Protocol to connect and utilize real-time data from leading multinational insurance providers. Custom oracles created on Band Protocol offer a decentralized solution for quoting and policy issuing through direct connections with traditional insurance providers.

In turn, working with Polkacover will significantly drive Band Protocol integrations with insurance enterprises and firms to secure the best DeFi and crypto insurance available.

“Polkacover is thrilled to work with Band Protocol, our oracle of choice with significant competitive advantages for insurance and DeFi DApps including scalability, low-cost, customizability, and a key focus on decentralization on an oracle network of 72 validators. Together, both teams will bring widely accessible and affordable insurance coverage for all of DeFi and crypto.”

With smart contract insurance products not widely accessible or understood to the average user, Polkacover is creating a global insurance marketplace with extensive coverage, low-costs and transparency.
