Why Coincover?

Coincover was founded in 2018 in Cardiff with the aim of making owning cryptocurrency safer and more accessible. It is the first and only service to guarantee digital funds will not be lost or stolen. By combining insurance with the latest security features, Coincover significantly reduces risk and makes digital currency investments simple, safe and secure for retail and business customers.

Coincover is growing fast. Since our initial launch in June we are already covering more than 10,000 wallets, protecting more than $250 Million in crypto assets, have helped recover $300K+ funds. Yet, this is just the beginning and this is a brilliant opportunity to get in on a start-up right at the beginning.

Cryptocurrency ownership is growing fast and getting more mainstream but to many it still feels like a risky investment. Coincover is changing this. Backed by Hambro Perks Insurtech Gateway, the Development Bank of Wales and others, we are creating the easiest way to protect and manage digital currency anywhere in the world.
