Introduction to DeFi covers

Decentralized risk products are new, complex and continuously evolving. Therefore, there is need for a credible third party to create – together with the community – an independent and fair assessment of these products.

Bright Union allows comparison of coverages across multiple risk products.

Criteria for comparison

Min contract duration period
