Nexus Mutual Joining The Multi-Chain Trend
With the addition of networks with smart contract compatibility, Nexus is rapidly expanding its insurance covers to protect more users. The company revealed that its usage increased sharply this year.
In January, the company unveiled new insurance offerings for users of crypto exchanges like Coinbase, Binance, Kraken, and Gemini.
Before this, Nexus had only been focused on decentralized exchange (DEXs), specifically catering to the explosion of decentralized finance (DeFi), which were more susceptible to hacks and losses.
Beyond exchanges, Nexus is also active in the crypto lending space. The DeFi Protocol added support for centralized crypto interest-earning service, Hodlnaut.
This year, Nexus raised $2.7 million through NXM token sales to fund its operations and expansion plans. The funds were raised to boost Nexus foundation treasury, the not-for-profit organization charged with selling NXM tokens to fund core development of the protocol.
