Episode details

Welcome to part 2 of the economics of insurance! In this episode, we are going to take a deep dive into Nexus Mutual, a decentralized insurance platform that utilizes tokens to align incentives of different participants in the insurance market. If you haven't seen part 1, we highly recommend doing so before continuing with this episode. We will be exploring the workings of Nexus Mutual and how their token, $NXM, is designed to incentivize risk assessors, claim assessors, and insurance cover buyers. Additionally, we will be delving into the math behind Nexus Mutual's monetary policy, specifically focusing on the bonding curve, which is different from the AMM bonding curve.

Our approach will be to examine Nexus Mutual's design framework, which includes Market Design, Mechanism Design, and Token Design aspects of the platform. By doing so, we hope to provide a comprehensive understanding of how Nexus Mutual operates and how it offers a decentralized alternative to traditional insurance models. So, get ready to expand your knowledge of the economics of insurance and the power of token incentives!
