BACKED is the first insurance protocol for cryptocurrency, allowing private users to conclude an insurance contract executed by a smart contract. This project approaches the concept of insurance from the perspective of decentralism, in order to give the user full control over his policy without any external interference: each BACKED contract is fully customizable, automated and trustless.

Extend our vision of decentralized insurance beyond crypto trading, into traditional areas (cancelled flight insurance etc.)
BACKED introduces a revolutionary model of decentralized insurance, where contracts are made between two individuals. Each user can therefore freely choose between the role of insured and insurer, according to their own financial objectives.
The first insurance protocol for cryptocurrencies allows you to secure your trades via a 100% reliable and verified smart contract, which insures your positions in case of loss with insurance coverage in stablecoin.
As an BACKED insurer, join one or more insurance contracts that provides you a steady stream of income in insurance premiums. Develop your own community of insured to boost your reputation and win more contracts!
Our contract creation tool is designed to allow a total customization of each parameter of your own insurance contract, allowing a perfect optimization of it according to your needs.
