Cryptocurrency insurance company, Evertas is now insured to cover policies of up to $420 million from its previous limit of just $5 million, Reuters reported.

London-based Arch Insurance International, a syndicate member of Lloyd’s of London, has authorized Evertas to increase its coverage limit for a single policy for crypto custodians and exchanges to $420 million in a significant boost for risk management in the cryptocurrency industry.

Hackers have stolen around $400 million from crypto projects so far this year, according to a report by blockchain intelligence firm TRM Labs.
