Armor now covers user assets as part of a new partnership with Perpetual Protocol in the mission to make DeFi safer.
Perpetual Protocol makes on-chain leveraged trading simple — connect your wallet, deposit USDC, and start trading. Every trade is recorded on-chain and you can start trading without the need for any counterparty.
⭐️ It only takes three steps for you to do leveraged trades on Perpetual Protocol — connect your wallet, deposit USDC, and then begin trading.
⭐️ Traders always control their assets when trading on the protocol, even when the site is down.
⭐️ Starting from blue-chip DeFi tokens like YFI, SUSHI, and COMP, more markets will be added on the protocol through governance.

Perpetual Protocol has purchased $2.5M in protocol-level coverage as an arNFT (underwritten by Nexus Mutual) for 12 months to protect their users, which may grow as needs expand.
This coverage currently protects Perpetual Protocol assets against smart contract risks. Starting April 26, 2021 thanks to Nexus Mutual the cover will extend to the full spectrum of protection against oracle attacks, severe economic attacks, and governance attacks.
This way, the Perpetual Protocol team gives traders the confidence that their funds are protected because users don’t have to cover their own positions separately.
The developers behind Perpetual Protocol also receive a grant of ARMOR tokens, equalling the USD value of the coverage secured in the first cover purchase.
Having joined Armor’s Big Bug Bounty Challenge in partnership with Immunefi, Perpetual Protocol will also add a further layer of protection to the protocol smart contracts with whitehat hackers economically incentivized to secure the system instead of acting against it.
Armor seeks to truly innovate on crypto-native coverage for DeFi assets by creating symbiotic, collaborative, composable relationships with complementary protocols. Further innovations are on the way and Armor will continue to scale up and seek to serve Perpetual Protocol even better.
