Hong Kong’s multi-line insurer OneDegree announced a partnership with digital asset exchange HKbitEX to offer protection for its sister company ON1ON’s custody platform.

The partnership will ensure that US$100 million of digital assets under management will be protected.

OneDegree will cover private key loss and misappropriation due to physical damage to wallets caused by natural events, cybersecurity threats, and employee theft.




The insurer is actively developing further solutions to provide comprehensive protection to digital asset participants.

These solutions, together with an in-house developed enterprise-grade cybersecurity platform Cymetrics, will help clients understand their cyber exposure and manage their cyber risks.
