Premier and BDA Congratulate Nayms for Becoming World’s First Crypto-Native Insurance Marketplace 

Hamilton, Bermuda, May 17, 2022 — The Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA) congratulates Nayms for graduating from the Bermuda Monetary Authority’s (BMA) regulatory sandbox, to become the world’s first, fully regulated crypto-native insurance marketplace.

Nayms bridges legacy insurance with blockchains enabling investors, brokers, insurers, and insureds to conduct their affairs in cryptocurrency, from capital to premiums to claims. In this way, participants mitigate exchange risk by matching assets with liabilities whilst accessing alternative capital for the most efficient risk transfer. 

Bermuda’s Premier, the Hon. David Burt, JP, MP said, “We are thrilled to see the announcement that Nayms has graduated from the BMA’s sandbox in not one, but two licence classes. Their Class F (Full) Digital Asset Business licence, and an Innovative Insurer General Business (IIGB) licence will allow Nayms to continue to expand their presence on Island, and demonstrate Bermuda’s capacity to serve as the jurisdiction of choice for innovative digital asset businesses. We wish Nayms success in this next chapter as the world’s first crypto-compatible insurance marketplace.”

Dan Roberts, CEO of Nayms, said, “From the beginning of our journey we have taken a pro-regulatory approach, with our challenge being how do we integrate existing legal and regulatory processes into blockchain technology in a way that augments the utility of this innovation for our users. With vital support from the BDA, today we celebrate the successful consummation of this process and greatly look forward to the next phase of our mission.”

David Hart, CEO of the Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA), “On behalf of the BDA, it is my pleasure to be among the first to congratulate Nayms. We have enjoyed working with their team and are excited to officially welcome them to Bermuda’s dynamic and growing technology sector. If you are considering following in Nayms’ footsteps and want to set up your quality, tech-enabled business in Bermuda, please contact the BDA’s comprehensive business concierge service at so we can connect you to everyone you need to help turn your ideas into reality.”
