D1Conf, organized by Decentalized Insurance Foundation, is the third annual conference bringing together insurtech innovators who are redefining the entire global insurance industry. Attend to enjoy two days full of hands-on workshops and interactive talks and panels with organizations and enthusiasts using Ethereum to create decentralized insurance apps, platforms, and protocols.
Join the unique education and collaboration hub to share your ideas and learn about new tools, ideas, adoptions, and research. Evaluate threats and opportunities based on the real-life experience of the ecosystem members, see new products launched and learn how they get traction. The days of pilot projects are almost gone, as the industry is moving from the experimental stage to real products.
In a Design-Thinking setup, participants will develop and discuss new ideas for decentralized insurance products and discuss possible business cases. We will provide input from 2years+ experience.
Get hands-on with developing and deploying your own blockchain-based insurance product on top of a new generic insurance platform.
Technology is increasingly forcing the insurance industry to change. This impacts not only changes in business models, customer expectations and behaviours but also opens the door up to new entrants coming from the digital sector. In this design thinking workshop we will explore how insurance will look like by 2030 and how we can prepare for it.
Join to learn the journey of how Etherisc, the consortium between Oxfam in Sri Lanka, Aon, and later on Sri Lankan insurer Sanasa has joint forces and expertise to build complex programmes that are only possible because of a joint action of diverse actors bringing their expertise in building affordable, sustainable and economically feasible products. Our vision is to develop a sustainable model that delivers an affordable product to the farmers. The session will give an overview of the project purpose which is to develop a broad proposition for crop insurance for farmers in Sri Lanka, based upon blockchain technology. We wish to share our journey and learnings in Sri Lanka so far plus our envisioned next steps. The session will end with an overview of the results and learnings, specifically with regard to policy issuance and claims handling.
With much hype but little substance so far, blockchain technology has the potential to disrupt the core of the insurance industry. Nexus Mutual gives a real working insight into what insurance reinvention could look like.
Provable leverages cutting-edge blockchain and Trusted Computing technologies to power the switch to more decentralized processes across industries. Traditional financial and insurance systems have been shaken by blockchain technology and forced to rethink their processes in a more decentralized and transparent fashion. Provable is an infrastructure tool to enhance DApps by connecting them with real-world data and multi-blockchain assets.
Crop micro-insurance penetration rate is less than 1% worldwide, leading to 500M unprotected smallholder farmers. Actual micro-insurance failed to convince, due to complex management and assessment process that lead to very low value for money. How to empower traditional mutuality model with technologies ? Introduce IBISA as example of blockchain, earth observation and wisdom of the crowd combining to propose a simple and cost efficient farmer-to-farmer risk sharing.
BEACON is a market-led project that couples cutting edge Earth Observation (EO) technology with weather intelligence and blockchain technology to deliver a toolbox for the Agricultural Insurance (AgI) with timely cost-efficient and actionable insights for the agri-insurance industry. BEACON enables insurance companies to exploit the untapped market potential of AgI, while contributing to the redefinition of existing AgI products and services.
Join to learn how Trustlayer team have built a Corda application that helps companies verify insurance coverage. The winner of R3’s global insurtech challenge, the team is working closely with the Institutes, B3i, and Acord.
The concept of risk in financial environments is largely misunderstood. Decentralisation can create new risk management methods that were previously not possible by ensuring skin in the game from all involved parties.
Looking back on 1 year of DI Foundation. The past, the present and the future.
Julien will present a carbon offset insurance product based on work with EcoTree and Gnosis. This oracle allows financial products (derivatives etc) and parametric insurance for forestry.
In many jurisdiction, the term "insurance" is connected with a legal guarantee of a payout in case of a justified claim. We show how we can replace legal by technical guarantees which are provided at protocol level, and how this enables a new kind of business which gives the customers a protection equivalent to insurance, but without the enormous and costly regulatory overhead of traditional insurance.
Max will discuss recent proposals in Malta for a new form of legal organisation specifically designed for the operation of DLT and smart contracts. He will share his experiences in analysing how the granting of legal personality to a DAO could help manage liability by providing a a clear point of recourse where damages or losses are caused to users of the technology. The DAO concept raises interesting questions of liability (including in the event of bugs in the smart contract code, for example) not just of the DAO or platform but also in respect of other market participants such as its developers and contributors, potential administrators and auditors. There are evident coverage gaps created by the particular risks posed by DAOs and similar arrangements, and the presentation will also aim to provoke discussion on how decentralised and autonomous insurance products could provide solutions to fill these gaps.
Insurance as we know it has failed. The protection gap isn’t shrinking, trust in insurers is at an all time low, operating expenses are close to 40%, and large corporates such as Maersk are increasingly self insuring themselves via captives. Will insurance incumbents be able to re-invent themselves to exist in the future?
1. Automating insurance 2. Risk transfer in value chains 3. Challenges 4. Why is working in a consortium important? 5. How big is the potential for blockchain, smart contracts, and oracles to disrupt the inclusive insurance industry?
Learn how you can leverage Chainlink to connect your smart contracts to any API endpoints.
Join to learn updates on the MFSA’s initiatives in the FinTech space, in particular the regulatory sandbox.
Join to learn about the progress that Raincoat team has done from last year and discover their current and future challenges including a demo of their windstorm product with GIF integration. You will also see a demo of CDP Insurance.
By analyzing the live blockchain data of "Fizzy" (flight delay insurance by AXA) and "Smart contract cover" (smart contract insurance by Nexus Mutual), we'll discuss why reading from the blockchain is hard and show how to solve it. With a few clicks and simple SQL, the data is put into dashboards with easy to understand KPI charts. This enables management to gain insights, generate trust through transparency and fulfill monitoring requirements of auditors and regulators.
A session on dealing with regulators and managing litigation risk as a startup with limited funds in the DeFi/insurtech space. Attendees will learn practical strategies and approaches to to deal with regulatory pressures, legal uncertainties and potential litigation, as well as 7 key mistakes to avoid, through the framework of a of a structured risk/reward analysis.
