CHAIN-FINANCE SEMINAR

BLOCKCHAIN FOR INSURANCE MARKETS

Wednesday, 18th May 2016, London

7:00 PM to 10:00 PM

At this event assessing a few key areas where blockchain tech is said to offer benefits for the insurance industry:

Transparency 

Blockchain tech first enhances the transparency of insurable goods. If you add a diamond to a blockchain and track its history, then it should be easier to insure and the premiums more accurate.

More Information, More Accuracy, Better Data Security

Blockchain tech offers a manner to have more information shared with insurers but in a way that is secure. More information which is relevant, validated and actual will offer insurers a better way to “create more accurate products, prices and premiums”, this is the view of the UK Government’s Chief Scientific Advisor (GCSA), Mark Walport.

Real-Time Insurance Contracts

Using smart contracts on the blockchain we should be able to devise the first ‘real-time’ insurance product. This is both the vision of Michael Mainelli and has been referenced by Walport too. In this case, an insurance product self-adjusts its premium as circumstances or owners change and can automate payouts based on blockchain verified facts rather than a claims process.

Enabling the Sharing Economy

Another area for blockchain technology is insuretech. Startups like Lemonade, Friendsurance are bringing peer-to-peer insurance to market. Blockchain is peer-to-peer by design. So, how might that technology enable insuretech businesses?
