Transition of Infrastructure & Downtime
Cover Community, Thank you for the messages of support during this time of transition; they are greatly appreciated. Over the next week, we will work to secure and transfer ownership of infrastructure, including Cover Protocol websites and apps. As part of this transition, all UIs will be unavailable for approximately 7-days. We understand this may cause a feeling of uncertainty for some, which is why we are providing a 48-hour advance notice for those to collect any rewards. Downtime will start 09/03/21 at 12:30 PM EST. We want to emphasize that at this time, all funds are SAFU. Deposited xCOVER will remain staked, and any rewards unclaimed prior to this downtime will be claimable upon the website/app (including CoverRules order book website). All contracts can still be interacted with via Etherscan once this downtime starts. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate this process. Thank you, Cover Protocol Website | App | Docs | Twitter | Discord | Telegram | GitHub | YouTube
Structure and Personnel Changes
Cover Protocol would like to announce the departure of CryptoPumpkin, Alan, and KryptoCucumber, who are leaving due to increasing personal commitments. We are working with them to return vested tokens and contract control to the treasury. As we look ahead, the remaining team members are committed to the Cover Protocol community. We will work with the Cover Protocol community to craft a clear roadmap for the future of this protocol. We appreciate your continued support and we will move forward together, stronger.

Minting Tokens for Liquidity Mining & Ending Migration
All of the actions below are in reference to the “Minting Tokens To Continue Shield Mining” proposal, which was voted on and passed by the Cover Protocol Community. The proposal enacted can be found here. The additional supply of 14,489.751566617860993128 tokens was minted to dev multi-sig. These tokens will be strictly be used for liquidity mining. This transaction can be found here. The max supply prior to this proposal being enacted would have been 70,200 tokens. The total circulating supply at the time of ending migration was 67,510. A total of 2,690 tokens went un-migrated. The minter of the COVER token is set to the 0x address with this transaction. The wETH distributor was also terminated after 6 months. Any unclaimed wETH from the compensation plan was sent to the 0x address. Migration has officially ended and the new max supply of COVER is set at 82,000 tokens. The team is very excited to start this new chapter of Cover Protocol! Thank you to the community for coming together to vote on this important proposal! More details on liquidity mining will come in the next week.
Cover V2 is Live on Mainnet
ETH Mainnet — Live URL: https://app.coverprotocol.com. We have deployed one Cover pool for now and will continue to deploy more as gas prices are more reasonable. Follow the user guide here to learn how to provide and purchase coverages. Note: Cover V1 can now be accessed at https://v1.coverprotocol.com.BSC Mainnet — Partially Live URL: https://bsc.coverprotocol.com. One pool is deployed on BSC where you can start to mint covTokens. Unfortunately, orderbook trading of the covTokens is currently not supported on BSC due to the lack of support of orderbooks from 0x. We have been in contact with the team; the timeline to support BSC is undetermined. As the team is looking for an alternative, we encourage all our community members to share any ideas and suggestions of an alternative trading solution for coverages (cTokens). At the same time, you can OTC trade the covTokens. To facilitate OTC deals, we have created a Discord OTC channel: https://discord.gg/RNXN2QXp.

An update on the release date for v2 should be announced as soon as we hear back from the auditors and an April launch is still on the table currently.The new v2 UI work is led by our newest team member Niicoder. The UI looks a lot cleaner and more user friendly.

It will soon be deployed on Kovan for testing.We are currently iterating and largely simplifying the Cover Reserve contracts for the Cover Protocol Money Market which will be the foundation for our streamed opt in coverage for smart ...
Launch of Credit Default Swaps
Cover Protocol is pleased to announce the official launch of Credit Default Swaps (CDS), the first of its kind in the DeFi space! For the first venture into CDS, we will be partnering with Ruler Protocol. You can read more about CDS on Cover from our previous article. Lenders on Ruler Protocol now have the option of hedging the default risk from the borrower side. As a result, insolvency risk will be minimized even in the absence of liquidations. In order to attract liquidity to the pools offering this coverage, Ruler will incentivize these Cover pools using RULER tokens. We will also list Ruler Protocol for platform coverage options as well. An allocation of ~20,000 $RULER tokens will be spread across Ruler Pairs in the next 3 months. The first batch consists of 3 CDS pools and a Ruler Protocol coverage pool. Please see the below chart for a breakdown of information.Farming/Rewards Mining as a New Farmer If you are new to Cover, be sure to read our documentation before anything. To farm the new pools:Mint coverage on the above CDS options and or protocol. Make sure expiry lines up with your choice (please select the correct params).Add NOCLAIM token liquidity into the [50% NOCLAIM / 50% DAI] Balancer pool for the corresponding CDS and or protocol with the correct expiration.You can choose to sell (as a coverage provider) or hold (as a market maker) CLAIM tokens.

Introduce Credit Default Swaps
Introducing Cover Protocol Credit Default Swaps (CDS), a new DeFi coverage product that will expand on the smart contract coverage offering already available through Cover. This new product is the first of what will be a series of coverage products that we will provide to support a future undercollateralized DeFi ecosystem.What is a Credit Default Swap? As you may be aware, the Credit Default Swap is the financial tool Michael Burry used to short the mortgage CDOs in 2007, made famous by the movie “The Big Short”. In essence, a CDS is a contract that gives the holder the right to a payment if a debtor does not have the ability to repay a loan within the set guidelines of the credit that is provided. Globally the CDS market is around $4 trillion annually.“A credit default swap (CDS) is a financial swap agreement that the seller of the CDS will compensate the buyer in the event of a debt default (by the debtor) or other credit event.” — WikipediaWhy Credit Default Swaps? In recent weeks we saw Alpha Homora exploited for $37 million via a lending contract of undercollateralized credit from the Iron Bank. Given that the Alpha team has a large treasury and the ability to honor the loss this will work itself out. However, if Alpha were not able to pay, then the Iron Bank would have been at a loss. This is where a CDS market comes in, to protect lenders like the Iron Bank against default on under-collateralized loans....

A British jeweler has sued its insurance company for refusing to cover a bitcoin ransom payment of $7.5 million. The jeweler paid the hackers to prevent sensitive customer data from being published.Insurance Company Faces Lawsuit for Refusing to Cover Bitcoin Ransom Payment
A luxury British Jeweler, Graff, has sued its insurer, The Travelers Companies, for refusing to cover a ransom bitcoin payment, Bloomberg reported last week.
The jeweler paid a bitcoin ransom of $7.5 million to the Russian hacking gang Conti after the group threatened to leak data of the company's big clients, including Middle East royalty. Graff negotiated the ransom payment amount with the hackers and managed to reduce it from $15 million.
Conti attacked Graff in September last year and leaked data about the royal families from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and Qatar. The hackers apologized to the families but said that they may need to leak more of Graff's data.
'Our goal is to publish as much of Graff's information as possible regarding the financial declarations made by the US-UK-EU neo-liberal plutocracy, which engages in obnoxiously expensive purchases when their nations are crumbling under economic duress,' the hacking group reportedly said.
While authorities have discouraged individuals and businesses from making ransom payments, there are circumstances where paying them is beneficial, particularly when the damage inflicted by a cyber attack is greater than the cost of the ransom.

British multinational jeweler Graff Diamonds Corp. has filed a lawsuit against its insurer, The Travelers Companies, Inc. (Travelers), for failing to provide indemnity after it paid $7.5 million in Bitcoin to ransomware hackers.
Graff Sues Insurer Over $7.5M BTC Ransom Loss
According to a Bloomberg report on Wednesday, Graff's security systems were exploited by the notorious Russian hacking gang Conti in September 2021. The breach allowed the group to access data belonging to 'high-end' customers, including U.S. former President Donald Trump and the royal families in Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Qatar.
After the attack, Conti published 69,000 documents containing the private information of Graff's clients while threatening to release more if the billion-dollar jewelry brand did not pay $15 million in Bitcoin.
In November 2021, Graff paid the gang 118 BTC (worth $7.5 million at the time), half of the amount initially requested. The company said it had to pay the ransom to protect its customers.
'The criminals threatened targeted publication of our customers' private purchases. We were determined to take all possible steps to protect their interests and so negotiated a payment which successfully neutralized that threat,' a Graff spokesperson said.
After the incident, the company expected its insurer to cover the losses it incurred from the attack because it was an 'insured risk.' However, Graff is yet to receive indemnity from Travelers.
'We are extremely frustrated and disappointed ...
|Trudeau Invokes Emergencies Act to End Freedom Convoy Protests — C...
The Canadian government has invoked the Emergencies Act to deal with the Freedom Convoy protests, said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The scope of Canada's anti-money laundering and terrorist financing rules is also broadened to cover crowdfunding platforms and 'all forms of transactions, including digital assets such as cryptocurrencies.'
Canadian Government Invokes Emergencies Act
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Monday that 'the federal government has invoked the Emergencies Act to supplement provincial and territorial capacity to address the blockades and occupations.'
This rarely-used act, which Trudeau is the first prime minister to invoke, gives the government temporary powers it does not normally have. Trudeau said the new measures would be 'geographically specific and targeted only to where they are needed.' They will also be 'time-limited.'
The prime minister explained that he invoked the Emergency Act to deal with the Freedom Convoy protests, which started on Jan. 28 by Canadian truckers opposing a vaccinate or quarantine mandate. The protests have shut some border crossings and paralyzed downtown Ottawa.
Chrystia Freeland, Canada's deputy prime minister and the minister of finance, detailed that one of the measures enables banks to freeze accounts, stating:
As of today, a bank or other financial service provider will be able to immediately freeze or suspend the account of an individual or business affiliated with these illegal blockades without a c...
