Digital Bitcoin currency assurance services aimed at preventing trade-related losses in my opinion this positive technology can be used to speed up the settlement of claims but convincing insurance companies to trust the new currency is not an easy task.

bitcoin insurance is a hard thing to achieve. many home insurers do not automatically pay out at request. they investigate and do accounting on the chance/risk that the insured person has not simply hidden the posessions to pretend they were stolen. which is harder to prove because a investigator cannot simply ask neighbours if they seen a removal van at the persons home. so i do not see insurance companies offering a personal insurance. as there are too many ways to fake a claim to get out mor then the person put in.

however
exchanges could decide to put their trade fee's into a trust (multisig) that is co-signed by an insurance company. where by to keep trade fee's down and keep the exchange profitable. can only access the fee's after 12 months of the trade.

EG
imagine in one day trade fee's totaled 7.45btc(Gdax example), over a year totals ~2,700btc
at the 366th day the exchange will get their 7.45btc. but could lose ~2,700btc if they do anything to harm thier customers

its kind of how silk road reportedly operated, by having a reserve/collateral. how how some fiat institutions are set up. though fiat institutions do not get their premiums back after a year, which is why trading fee's can be higher in those cases

Not that I would recommend storing any bitcoin there, but I beleive companies like Coinbase have some sort of insurance to protect at least a certain amount of loss in the event of theft or other type of loss by them. I don't think it covers you personally at all if say you made a mistake that lead to your account being hacked or something. But if I'm correct about this then it should function almost like FDIC guarantees on bank accounts and such.

a project named BitRust. It aims to go out on the market as an insurance mechanism. But lately, it's not making much noise from the project. I hope they can successfully enter the market

I am very happy and very agree if in bitcoin there is a company that is bitcoin insurance but I think if you want to establish a company is still very difficult, because it is in bitcoin there are many scam projects, so if the company is there then it will likely experience a little loss ....

No need of registering insurance company.


not so much an insurance company(government regulated). but a public body that can display they as a multisig co-signer have morals and rules to not spend funds themselves  and are not in cahoots with the exchange. usually this would be an pre-established entity who has experience and would happily register their location details to be handed court orders should anything nasty happen.

im not saying regulated registration insurance.. im saying public consumer protection insurance. which there is a difference.

regulated insured establishments are allowed to break the law, pretend they are bankrupt to not pay out and then go money grabbing
consumer protections keeps businesses ethical or suffer repercussions

after all. how many bankers went to jail due to the crises. and on the flip side how many bankers got more richer
where as if a business with consumer protection certification, would get court orders and bailiffs at their doors in a crisis

There are some uncertainty about Bitcoin, no regulations especially. How can any company grant your Bitcoins unless you leave all your funds to them. You can keep your Bitcoins secure as any others can do. If you are looking to keep the value safe, you should check crypto investment rather than insurance

Reading this just makes me think of BitGo when they had 2 of 3 multisig as a service for Bitfinex and just let someone withdraw 60 mil or what it was in BTC at the time.

Imagine if they were actually on the hook for their incompetence somehow rather than Bitfinex.

I think if insurance company connects with bitcoin then it might be a great advantage for investor and if this happened then it also increase bitcoins popularity.

Imagine if they were actually on the hook for their incompetence somehow rather than Bitfinex.

I believe Bitgo's methods were fine, Bitfinex completely ignored them and left themselves wide open.

I just don't see how widespread insurance can work. All the places that claim they're insured like Coinbase for hacks at their end may well find there's no pay out if they ever really needed it. A Bitpay employee opened an email attachment and lost them a million dollars. They tried to claim on their insurance and were told to bugger off.

As in Bitfinex and Bitpay's cases these losses are almost always down to incompetence and laziness. No insurer would pay out under those circumstances.
