Bridge Mutual (BMI) is a multi-chain, decentralized discretionary coverage platform that is on a mission to become the #1 crypto-insurance provider in DeFi (decentralized finance).

BMI covers smart contracts (and soon also stablecoins and centralized services/exchanges) against hacks and exploits. The protocol allows users to provide coverage, decide on policy payouts, share profit, and get compensated for adjudicating claims. Users can purchase protection for their digital assets, or provide collateral in digital assets in exchange for a yield. We focus on great product design, pro-community business objectives, and synergy with other web3 innovations.
