Bridge Insurance: The Ultimate Safety Net for Bridging

By LI.FI | LiFi | 23 Apr 2023


LI.FI and InsurAce have joined forces to introduce Bridge Insurance, crypto’s first production-ready product designed to safeguard users against the risks associated with bridging transactions.

In collaboration with InsurAceLI.FI is launching Bridge Insurance, a powerful tool that allows us to bridge the gap between security and convenience.

Bridge Insurance addresses the risks associated with using cross-chain bridges by providing 100% protection for users against the risks of losing funds while using these platforms.

In other words, it is time to say hello to stress-free bridging!

The Details

To kick things off, Bridge Insurance is live on Jumper.Exchange, and is an opt-in for Jumper users.

The Bridge Insurance fee will be a small fraction of a user’s bridge amount, typically between 0.1–0.5% depending on the underwriter’s risk profile.

To purchase Bridge Insurance for your transaction, simply flip the Bridge Insurance switch on Jumper and press ‘Start Swap’ after you have filled in your transaction details.

Thanks to LI.FI’s ability to bundle smart contract calls with bridging transactions, this flow should feel like a normal Jumper transaction!

Once you’ve started the swap, you’ll be provided a link to your insurance coverage for the duration of your transaction on InsurAce.

And that’s it! User transactions can now be 100% insured against bridges being hacked.

The Future of Bridging Is Insured

Although cross-chain bridges have been a significant technological advancement and are crucial in enabling connectivity between blockchains, they are complex systems with many moving parts. Despite their utility, ensuring the security of these systems is an ongoing challenge. As a result, users are worried another bridge hack could be just around the corner, leading to stressful experiences.

At LI.FI, our mission is to make the bridging experience as seamless and stress-free as possible for our users. The possibility of losing funds during one of these transactions is a significant concern, and we aim to alleviate such worries by providing a sense of security to users.

With the addition of Bridge Insurance, we hope to make bridging a stress-free experience.

Our partner, the esteemed InsurAce, manages pooled capital to guarantee bridge transactions through Jumper. In the event of a bridge hack, InsurAce will confirm the loss of funds locked inside the bridge, and users can submit a claim for your lost funds.

We’re proud to be at the forefront of this initiative, making bridging more secure and hassle-free than ever before.

We will continue working with InsurAce to expand our insurance coverage and provide you with even more peace of mind when interacting with cross-chain bridges.
