YAS and Avata Join Forces to Launch Embedded NFT Warranty Service to Cover the Cyber Risks of Digital Assets Globally

Hong Kong, October 2022 - YAS Group (BVI) Ltd (YAS), an insurance-on-blockchain pioneer, is joining forces with Avata, an insurtech company, to launch an embedded NFT warranty service worldwide. The warranty service is purchased and issued at the check-out stage of NFT purchases, to cover certain cyber hacks and risks associated with the potential exploitation of smart contracts of digital assets.

YAS and Avata formed this partnership, as these two insurtech companies share the same vision and goal, to protect digital assets and the web3 economy from cyber-criminals. Together, they are onboarding merchants, including NIBIRU, Pluck, Bapes, Wert, and iKonic whose combined NFT transactional value exceeds USD 500M. The warranty for the NFTs typically ranges in price from 0.05 - 0.1 ETH. The warrantied NFTs typically range in price from 0.05 - 0.1 ETH. Both YAS and Avata intend to focus on making NFT warranty service essential for every NFT transaction. Their target clients are game publishers, individual artists, museums, and audited NFT projects.

NFT warranty typically insures the transfer of valuable assets to cover the risk of the asset being intercepted during the process by hackers, a common type of digital crime experienced by game publishers and gamers. Joachim Rittfeldt Hofvenschiold, Avata's Co-founder and CCO, adds, "We are very excited to bring the first global NFT warranty service to the market. The traction is huge because there is a real need for NFT owners to insure their digital properties in the same way they insure their physical goods."

YAS Co-founder Andy Ann states, "Having experienced the hype of NFT these past year combined with the skyrocketing price of a cryptocurrency, we think it is time for the market to cool down and rethink the true value of NFTs in the creator's economy. Therefore, we think it’s time for us to announce this partnership to provide protection to NFT creators and owners for the long term and aid in making it sustainable and providing extra confidence to market players in the industry."
