What to consider when buying Nexus Mutual

Cryptocurrencies are highly speculative assets that come with a range of risks. Additionally, buyers of NXM tokens may want to consider the following:
  • Unique business model: Nexus Mutual currently makes use of a unique business model referred to as a “discretionary mutual,” wherein the mutual can elect to pay claims at its discretion. The platform made its first payout last year after DeFi lender bZx’s native smart contract code was exploited by a group of hackers.
  • UK-based entity: The platform is registered in the United Kingdom as a “limited by guarantee business,” usually given to non-profit organizations. Furthermore, since Nexus Mutual’s business operations are largely decentralized, the platform is owned entirely by its members.
  • Low entry barrier: Anyone can make use of the platform to gain access to a wide array of insurance offerings. To make use of Nexus, users are required to purchase NXM tokens that they can then leverage in order to acquire coverage as well as participate in the protocol’s native governance processes.
  • Purchase and operational limitations: Unlike a wide array of cryptocurrencies, NXM tokens cannot be bought via regular cryptocurrency exchanges and are only available for purchase via the official Nexus Mutual platform. The tokens can only be swapped among members of the ecosystem, but can also be traded and sold as usual outside the ecosystem in the form of wrapped tokens (WNXM).
  • Wide coverage possibilities: In addition to providing users with coverage against smart contract hacks and cold wallet compromises, the platform also offers traditional offerings such as insurance against earthquakes and thefts.
Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies, including Nexus Mutual, are speculative, complex and involve significant risks – they are highly volatile and sensitive to secondary activity. Performance is unpredictable and past performance of NXM is no guarantee of future performance. Consider your own circumstances, and obtain your own advice, before relying on this information. You should also verify the nature of any product or service (including its legal status and relevant regulatory requirements) and consult the relevant Regulators' websites before making any decision.
