The study, which was conducted to better understand the potential the firm’s new insurance product has within the crypto sphere, also reported that nearly $1 billion is digital assets were lost in 2018. To see what measures of protection users have been implementing, it seems like a whole lot has none. That said, only 10 percent of holders have their assets held in cold storage.
The aforementioned finding led Nobl Insurance’s CEO, Brandon Brown to argue that more emphasis needs to be placed on insurance rather than figuring out crypto’s contributions to the gaming industry.
