Currently, this startup is valued at a $100 million post-money valuation. Tribe Capital co-founder and partner Arjun Sethi recently said;

“The opportunity set for a decentralized approach to reinsurance is immense – there’s nearly a trillion of existing insurance surplus to be tokenized, and a huge amount of capital on the sidelines that will start to earn reinsurance premiums in the near future.”

“We want to provide liquidity for people that are kind of giving up because we’re still very bullish for the next 10 or 20 years. Unfortunately, crypto pricing has become correlated with risk assets, which I honestly don’t think has to be true. My hope is that soon crypto will decouple from the macro markets.”
