How Ascent Works

Features — Benefits — Risks

Unlike other insurance protocols Ascent Insure not only allows DeFi users to be protected against the risks of price fluctuations, but also allows them to be protected against code attacks.

Ascent Insure developed on Binance Smart Chain can provide price fluctuations and code attack risk insurance products.

Types of insurance policies depend on token suppliers and holders.

Token suppliers can make a profit in a variety of ways, one way is to lock their ASCENT tokens in the platform smart contracts , based on which the necessary financial support for creating insurance policies for DeFi users can be made.

DeFi users have to pay a fee to create an insurance policy since Ascent Insure is a decentralized platform , the profit from insurance policy sales goes to those who staked their token on our platform.

To ensure that owners can claim insurance, suppliers are required to deposit the asset. When a supplier issues a policy, the assets attributed to the smart contract will be locked, at the same time, Ascent Insure creates a short token for the supplier and a long token to the market.

Policy supplier can publish an insurance policy for sale by deposit their asset and get our short token. we encourage token holders and project team members to join the token suppliers to show users a reasonable token price for users.

Features

  3. Each policy (option) is endorsed at the nominal value held by users, which eliminates counterparty’s risk and ensures that the option holder can always purchase the underlying token;
  4. Add the mining part in hedging price violation risks. SHORT Token (get by supplying policy) and Ascent can be used in mining Ascent.
  5. Open to all DeFi protocols. Partners of Ascent could share users traffic in the whole ecosystem.
