Detailed description

Etherisc is building a platform for decentralized insurance applications. With visionaries like you, we can create a platform full of opportunities across the industry’s value chain. Corporates, large and small, not-for-profit groups and insurtech startups can all come together to provide better products and services. 

Team aims

  • Coordination (“managerial”) costs 
  • Conflict of interest between customers and company
  • Information asymmetry between customers and company

to use blockchain technology to help make the purchase and sale of insurance more efficient, enable lower operational costs, provide greater transparency into the industry and democratize access to reinsurance.

The mission of Etherisc is to build an open protocol for decentralized insurance applications, making it more efficient, enabling lower operational costs, providing greater transparency into the industry compared to traditional operations, and democratize access to reinsurance investments. 

Three demos have already been developed for three different insurance fields: Flight Delay DAPP, Social Insurance and Crop Insurance. And, especially interesting for the crypto space, Etherisc is also working on a multi-signature crypto wallet that can be insured.

Problem

  • Coordination (“managerial”) costs 
  • Conflict of interest between customers and company
  • Information asymmetry between customers and company

Solution

Blockchain can help reduce coordination costs, can solve the conflict of interest, by enabling truly independent experts. In a blockchain environment, all fundamental data and the decisions based on the data can be transparent and objectively validated.

Features

  • Build decentralized insurance applications
  • Increase transparency and fairness of insurance
  • Enable lower operational costs
  • Make the purchase and sale of insurance more efficient
