Why does Web3 require DeFi Insurance?

3 min readMay 2, 2022


Web3 has introduced a new age to the ongoing technology revolution with more and more users curious to explore this brand new digital world. However, threats still loom largely over the DeFi space despite the various security methods introduced.

With Web3, we will get all the benefits of the internet, but with more privacy and a blockchain-based architecture that makes our data safer than before. But to what extent does the security measure imposed guarantee safety to users?

The first quarter of 2022 saw a loss reported to be close to $1.3 billion with much of it still not recovered. This is a 695% spike from the losses reported in all of 2021.

Cybercriminals hacked projects in the Binance Smart Chain ecosystem 14 times, accumulating nearly $100 million in losses. The Ethereum ecosystem suffered 16 hack events in the 2021 and 18 breaches 2022 first quarters.

Although Web3 will be introducing a plethora of advantages for users to leverage, there are still prominent flaws that need to be addressed.

The safety of this blockchain technology might be questionable to many but a simple solution exists through DeFi insurance.

As the Defi space gains more traction and more and more investors become curious about the blockchain technology, this also brings in a significant amount of hackers who are on the lookout for loopholes to gain millions of innocent users.

Since the crypto world is still in the stepping stone stages, there is no stringent regulatory framework or laws in place that could put a potential fear in hackers. Instead of constantly being apprehensive about your investments within the DeFi space, taking out insurance on these digital assets (similar to insuring your traditional personal belongings) could save you millions in case of an unprecedented event.
