Insurance for blockchain

Specialist insurance advice for digital businesses. Offering a made-to-measure approach with emerging risks like blockchain in mind.

Blockchain insurance from Digital Risks


Blockchain based businesses are at the cutting edge, which means fitting you into a predefined box can be tricky. Lucky then, that at Digital Risks, we like to think outside the box, with tailor-made cover that's built for your business. We know the right questions to ask to get a detailed picture of the risks you face, enabling us to provide the best advice and negotiate the best deal on your behalf.

Emerging risks

The risk landscape is shifting and high-tech businesses are on the frontline. Where some providers struggle to keep up, our policies are designed with these new and emerging risks in mind. That includes cyber, ransomware and social engineering attacks, infringement of data protection rules like the GDPR, the PSD2 regulations and the threat of IP theft, patent trolls and defamation from digital content.


It's so new that many insurers don't fully understand blockchain, which makes it difficult for them to offer you the right cover, at the right price. Here, we do things differently, with our very own blockchain specialist, who will explain your needs to insurers and secure the best protection. That's why we already count numerous blockchain innovators amongst our clients.

One point of contact

We know you've got more exciting things to worry about than insurance. That's why we've made things as simple as possible. With us, you can sort all your policies in one place, including employers' and public liability, professional indemnity, cyber, contents and directors & officers. And you just have one point of contact, who's on the end of the phone whenever you need anything.
