It is tokenizing real world assets which are 100% insured, backed by an actual physical asset and held by a custodian.

Tidal Finance is making DeFi safer by building the first customizable smart contract cover marketplace for the Polkadot platform.

Through this collaboration, Tidal will be able to offer a higher level of insurance coverage to OpenDeFi’s network of projects. …

Tidal Finance is proud to join forces with UnoRe, the world’s first risk trading reinsurance platform on Polkadot & Web 3.0. UnoRe is the leading decentralized reinsurance protocol powered by Polkadot in the DeFi space.
