Token Security

The Union Governance Token (UNN) launched approximately six months ago. UNN did not have a public sale. UNN does not have an elastic supply or rebase mechanism. The UNN contract does not have permissions that grant administrators unrestricted mint capabilities. The Union token supply is fixed at 1,000,000,000, of which approximately 650,000,000 are in current circulation. The contracts and addresses with the highest concentrations of UNN tokens are predominantly the Union Treasury Wallet, Union Ecosystem Wallet, Union Supply Reserve Wallet, Uniswap lending pool, and AscendEx (formally BitMax) exchange wallets. Union core team tokens are following a vesting schedule of one year. The first token distributions to core team members will occur later this month and occur at even interval for the next six months. Union advisors are largely on a two-year vesting schedule.


Union seeks to make DeFi safer and more accessible by offering full stack protection that reduces the risks and costs of DeFi. Union’s multi-token bundled protection model allows for tailored protection for composable risks. Union is not a traditional insurance company but a technology platform offering protection products.

Union soft launched its first protection product, collateral optimization protection (C-OP) about three weeks ago. C-OP is a Defi derivative primitive that can be used as a standalone put option to either hedge risk or short assets. When integrated with a lending platform, C-OP allows a borrower to increase collateral factors to 100% while providing a lender the ability to greatly increase TVL with minimal additional risks.

Union’s second protection product, smart contract protection aka Union’s Crypto Default Swap (U-CDS) is currently in closed beta testing. U-CDS will simultaneously be audited next week. U-CDS are products that protect purchasers against event risk such as smart contract exploits, oracle manipulations, and rug pulls – and payout coverage is 100%. U-CDS allows project token holders peace of mind, project founders public accountability, and traders the ability to arbitrage pricing disparities based upon examined risk.

Union publishes weekly community updates on its Medium page.


Union’s governance token UNN (ERC20) is not required to participate in Union’s products but is required for participation in governance and may also confer economic rewards such as reserve-share program.

Community and Communication

Union is active on Telegram, Twitter, Medium, and GitHub. In addition, Union is in the process of building out a Gitbook. Union’s core team and advisors are presented on the Union Website.

Available Audits

Union has been audited three times in the past six months by industry leading auditors:

Market and Trading Data

  • UNN’s price at the time of this writing is $0.0146
  • All time high: $0.124
  • All time low: $0.0118
  • Price 90 days ago: $0.088
  • 650,000,000 tokens in circulation (approx.)
  • 1,000,000,000 maximum supply
  • Market capitalization at the time of this writing is $9,005,798
  • The UNN token is available on major exchanges including Uniswap, BitMart, AscendEx, and Gate.io.
  • The 24 hour trading volume at the time of this writing is $512,633.


Union has partnered with over 20 projects to integrate C-OP and/or U-CDS into their ecosystems. Projects include Avalanche, UniLend, KSM Starter, Prometeus, Waves, Moar, Prosper, Block Science, Bonded Finance, Alphr, Mattereum, Kleros.

Benefits for Bancor

  • C-OP can be integrated into the Bancor ecosystem to be used as a financial trading instrument which would allow Bancor users another tool for their trading strategies.
  • Bancor users can utilize C-OP in its current form as a standalone put option to either hedge risk or short assets.
  • Union will seed a pool on Bancor and drive Union LP holders to Bancor. At the time of this writing, there is just under two million dollars in total liquidity in the WETH/UNN Uniswap pool.
  • U-CDS can be integrated into the Bancor ecosystem for a protection pool against hacks and other identifiable user risks.
  • U-CDS can be integrated into the Bancor ecosystem for a protection pool to secure balances staked by Bancor users.
  • Union currently utilizes various geysers to reward LP providers. In the event Bancor can support such a program, Union would make a dedicated rewards geyser for UNN Bancor LP providers to further incentivize UNN Bancor liquidity.

Public Announcement

Bancor and Union shall jointly announce the UNN whitelisting and that their teams are working jointly towards incorporating C-OP into the Bancor platform.

Voting Instructions

  • Vote FOR to add UNN to the Bancor whitelist, with 20,000 BNT in single-sided staking capacity.
  • Vote AGAINST to deny UNN whitelisting status.

This sounds incredible, would be cool to hear more about how the shorts are formulated and how they will look inside the UI when intergrated. Solid Proposal look forward to it.


As someone invested in the insurance sector, I am glad to see us onboard other DeFi projects in this area.

I am looking forward to being able to enter an insured, single sided, IL protected position in any of our whitelisted pools.


nice to see them posting about it!


Union is (by my understanding) a sort of build-your-own insurance policy. This is incredibly useful, and this would be a wonderful addition to our ecosystem. And especially since they have active products on offer, indicating they’re sticking around, this proposal has my support.
