Hi y’all, hope everyone had another awesome weekend.
Cover Protocol is pleased to announce the official launch of Credit Default Swaps (CDS), the first of its kind in the DeFi space! For the first venture into CDS, we will be partnering with Ruler Protocol.
You can read more about CDS on Cover from our previous article.
Lenders on Ruler Protocol now have the option of hedging the default risk from the borrower side. As a result, insolvency risk will be minimized even in the absence of liquidations. In order to attract liquidity to the pools offering this coverage, Ruler will incentivize these Cover pools using RULER tokens. …
Introducing Cover Protocol Credit Default Swaps (CDS), a new DeFi coverage product that will expand on the smart contract coverage offering already available through Cover. This new product is the first of what will be a series of coverage products that we will provide to support a future undercollateralized DeFi ecosystem.
As you may be aware, the Credit Default Swap is the financial tool Michael Burry used to short the mortgage CDOs in 2007, made famous by the movie “The Big Short”. In essence, a CDS is a contract that gives the holder the right to a payment if a…
Cover Protocol’s long term vision has and always will be to allow anyone to buy coverage on anything. Cover Protocol V2 (Cover V2) takes us one step further towards that vision.
Cover V2 improves upon multiple aspects of V1 in the following ways:
The fundamental model of Cover remains unchanged. It still…
Dear Community and Cover Protocol Users,
We have on-boarded and updated several protocols and expiries today.
All new coverages will use Dai instead of yDai (to reduce gas costs).
If you want to farm the above pools, please read the following carefully!
No action required if you don’t plan to farm the above pools.
To farm the new pools,
We are very excited to announce there will be a substantial improvement to the liquidity model of our coverage tokens. By taking advantage of flash loans and our binary token system, we are able to eliminate our 2 balancer pools, replacing them with a single 50/50 NOCLAIM/DAI pool.
Note: this change only relates to the balancer pools and will only affect newly launched protocols/expiries after today. The fundamental fungible tokens model of Cover V1 has NOT changed. This is not Cover V2.
Using a single 50/50 NOCLAIM/DAI pool is a large improvement over our previous dual pool model…

Hello COVER Community,
The COVER (new) token(s) can now be claimed. Please refer to the compensation plan in the Medium post to see if you are eligible to claim COVER (new) token(s).
We apologize again for the situation and all who were affected. We want to thank everyone who has been helping us in any way, whether technically or with the community. We are grateful for all you have done for us and for the community that stood by our side.
Since we had to remove the minting rights from the Blacksmith contract to stop the exploit, it is impossible to claim any unclaimed rewards now.
The farming contract has been compromised with large exploited unclaimed rewards. Therefore, we will not be able to honor any unclaimed rewards. …
