Co-hosts Jose Maria Macedo and Yan Liberman sit down with Azeem and Robert from Armor Finance. Armor Finance is a new project building a smart insurance aggregator for DeFi. Armor seeks to make DeFi safer by streamlining the insurance UX, providing a ‘Pay as you Go’ and ‘Only pay what you owe’ coverage for users across various protocols, starting with the majors but expanding coverage over time. We see them as the insurance “distribution” layer on top of the “underwriting” layer provided by NXM, similar to insurance brokers in the real world. Armor just launched their first products and yield farming initiatives this weekend and Yan and Jose take this opportunity to dig into what Armor is and their future plans. We hope you enjoy this conversation.
