AXA XL, the Property & Casualty and Specialty Risk division of AXA, has developed an innovative insurance solution for Hoyos Integrity Corporation (Hoyos) to launch the world’s most secure digital “Hot” wallet.
In doing so, AXA XL has designed a bespoke contractual liability insurance coverage specifically tailored for, and in collaboration with Hoyos, a company that specializes in unique biometrically secured products and applications, including secure digital asset services.
Hoyos provides its users with the “Hoyos Promise of Security” that protects against specific breaches of the Hoyos digital “Hot” wallet’s security system. In the event of a non-authorized breach of the digital wallet’s security system, Hoyos commits to reimburse a Hoyos Wallet user for up to a maximum of USD $1M. AXA XL’s customized contractual liability insurance coverage insures Hoyos for defined amounts it must payout in the event of a breach of the Hoyos Promise of Security.
Jason Harris, Chief Executive, Global Property & Casualty Insurance, said, “As an insurer, our mission is to work with our clients to innovate and support them in the development of their products or services which move the world forward. The insurance, specially designed for this company, allows Hoyos to make its wallet a much more compelling and marketable product.”
“Hoyos now has the financial protection it needs to, in turn, offer people and institutions the added reassurance they need to go ahead and start using and storing crypto and digital currency tokens,” said Mukadder Erdoenmez, head of AXA XL’s NEAT (New Economies, Autonomy and Technology) business unit, a team of underwriters dedicated to designing new coverages to address changing client needs and serve emerging sectors. “We look forward to continuing our collaboration with Hoyos as we work to tailor customized insurance protection as Hoyos expands its wholesale partners and commercial agreements,” added Mr. Erdoenmez.
Hector Hoyos, Founder, CEO, and Chief Technology Officer of Hoyos Integrity Corporation said, “With AXA XL’s insurance partnership, Hoyos will bring an unmatched level of security to the existing global digital assets and mobile devices community. With the development of the Hoyos wallet and the fact Hoyos is insured by one of the leading insurance brands in the world, Hoyos is poised to open the cryptocurrency market up to potentially hundreds of millions of new and existing digital asset users. Moving forward in our collaboration with AXA XL, we are already working towards ways we can extend our “Hoyos Promise of Security” to RSN token technology and the rest of our product suite.”
