arNFT: Tokenized Coverage (sunsetted)

As of Nexus’ v2 upgrades that began in February 2023, and completed in March 2023, arNFTs are no longer supported, any remaining cover policies are still redeemable but no new arNFTs can be minted. This documentation will remain visible for record keeping purposes.

ArNFTs can be minted for all protocols for which Nexus Mutual coverage is available.
