Insurance For The Bitcoin Mining Industry

The bitcoin mining industry is in its infancy but is maturing rapidly. For bitcoin mining to be mature and to be recognized as such, it needs to be backed by insurance and well thought out risk management practices.

When fire, natural disaster or theft destroy the physical assets of your business and disrupt your ability to operate, you want one thing: to get back to business. Our job is to help you do that.

Insurance is complicated but our team of professionals is comprised of bitcoiners who understand the risks of bitcoin mining and can help protect you with the most comprehensive coverage and the least amount of risk.

Who needs insurance?


  • Owners of mining facilities.
  • Owners of mobile mining equipment.
  • Co-location owners or users.
  • Mining hosts or users of hosted facilities.
  • Secured and unsecured lenders.
  • Small miners, operating from their homes.

Coverage includes physical loss or damage to:


  • Owned or leased warehouses, permanent facilities or mobile facilities, including modified shipping containers.
  • Equipment, such as Antminer S19, Goldshell HS5, Whatsminer M30S, etc.
  • Cooling (including liquid immersion) and ventilation systems.

Additional coverage and risk mitigation solutions to consider:


  • General liability - accidents can and will happen. Every day your company is exposed to liability from your operations, products or employees.
  • Directors and officers liability - if you are a publicly traded miner, protect your directors and officers, especially in light of recent SEC activity and the presidential executive order encouraging development of a regulatory framework allowing innovation while reducing negative climate impacts.
  • Business interruption - partially replace lost mining rewards (in dollars) in the event miners are destroyed by certain defined events. We are co-developing a bespoke bitcoin mining business interruption policy which should be available end of summer 2022.
  • Customized solutions - our team of professionals partner with you to understand your specific needs and will design a creative solution that aligns your risk appetite and capabilities with your goals. For example, self-insurance or a captive insurance program are great alternatives to consider.

Insurance doesn't have to be complicated. We'll help you get the right protection at the right price, with the service you deserve.
