Insurance companies do not offer a policy or throttle coverage for customers with FTX-related risks.
The cryptocurrency market continues its long-term bear trend. Also during this bear period, there were many stories of bankruptcies and collapses. Especially with the collapse of FTX, there was a spread that caused the market to crash. This spillover has even spilled over into industries unrelated to crypto. UK-based insurance companies also scrutinize their customers in order not to be harmed.
