Decentralized Insurance Developer Conference (D1Conf) is a full-day networking event tailored exclusively for insurtech innovators who wish to redefine the entire global insurance industry.
The attendees will see live projects launched, discuss how-tos, typical bottlenecks, industry-specific challenges, and lessons learned by decentralized insurance community along the way from the experimental stage to real products.

Potential bugs in Smart Contract code is a risk every member of the Ethereum community faces. Nexus Mutual allows the community to pool funds together in a decentralised way, protecting each other, without the need for an insurance company.
Social security systems play a central role in the economic and political development of societies. And still, there are over 4.1 billion people worldwide without access to social security systems. The blockchain technology offers the potential to establish cost-efficient and tamper-proof decentralized social security systems. To highlight the current challenges of such systems, we have implemented the German statutory pension system on the Ethereum blockchain. In this talk, we will present the results and experiences we have developed within the scope of this project. We will focus on the Thing current decentralized insurance and decentralized social security ecosytem lack, for instance about scaling. We will also provide an outlook on how the prototype will eventually scale for millions of people.
In this talk, Monax’s Casey Kuhlman (CEO) and Jan H. Scheufen (CPO) will outline how Monax leveraged key features of Hyperledger Burrow to develop and deliver the very first generic business process engine written entirely in Solidity. The combination of an open source BPM engine and Hyperledger Burrow's permissioned EVM blockchain offers a vast range of possibilities for business users seeking to implement and scale out blockchain use cases. The talk will be a combination of demo and technical overview highlighting the design, rapid prototyping, and deployment of selected use cases.
The emergence of decentralized trading protocols, token standards, and other open finance instruments are providing the foundations for a parallel financial infrastructure on Ethereum. What can the insurance space learn from this and how can we establish insurance primitives for blockchain? At ConsenSys we've been exploring this and are excited to introduce Asekuro, a protocol for facilitating the distribution of insurance products
DAOs can provide common management functionality accross the value chain and can serve as a focal point for stakeholders including underwritters, administrators, operators and regulators. At HurricaneGuard we are exploring the Aragon stack, a popular DAO framework, in order to build supporting infrastructure for our products that includes registries as well as upgrade, arbitration and reporting schemes.
This topic is important to me because I believe DAOs provide amazing new tools that are well suited for managing insurance products in a fair, transparent and inclusive way.
I expect to meet all the wonderful people pushing the space forward.
To be able to compete with traditional insurance players, decentralised risk carriers need to be able to trustlessly invest capital in a way that generates interest. There are a number of exciting possibilities and proposals being created within the blockchain world that would allow an entity’s assets to earn a stable, predictable return whilst retaining enough liquidity to allow the entity to meet its liabilities. The main purpose of the talk is to explore the characteristics, risk profiles, and challenges of the nascent asset classes being built on-chain by the open financial ecosystem and assess their suitability to act as investment assets for a decentralised risk carrier.
Inclusive insurance is all about developing insurance solutions for those who have no or little access to insurance right now. Michiel will focus on agriculture index insurance solutions in emerging economies. He believes that blockchain technology may be the solution to help small-scale farmers to be protected against the risks they are facing nowadays.
Insurance provider require a balance sheet in order to write policies. A whole industry has emerged to refinance these risks, primarily in the form of re-insurance companies and capital markets tools (eg insurance linked securities and catastrophe bonds). Investors seek to increase their direct exposure to insurance risks: The lack of correlation with economic trends and recurring coupon payments make these attractive investments. In this talk, Theo will present the rationale for tokenising risks and the associated mechanics. Risk tokenisation will open up funding channels for a myriad of decentralised insurance applications, especially those based on smart contracts and novel risk categories.
Etherisc develops a protocol for decentralized insurance applications. It uses blockchain technology to make the purchase and sale of insurance more efficient, enable lower operational costs, and provide greater transparency into the industry. Common infrastructure, product templates, and insurance license make a platform that allows anyone to create their own insurance products.
Protofire is a team of engineers which helps token-based protocols and developer platforms accelerate growth of their ecosystems. By providing hands-on coding and contributions, Protofire specializes in supercharging developer adoption and network usage. Protofire works exclusively with entrepreneurs who are builders of decentralized infrastructure protocols, applications and ecosystems.
Altoros integrates software assembly lines into large organizations by deploying solutions offered by the Cloud Foundry ecosystem. Altoros customers are among the first to create and monetize application-driven competitive advantages with Cloud Foundry.
Nexus Mutual is a decentralised alternative to insurance that provides cover for bugs or hacks in smart contracts running on Ethereum.
Asure is an open decentralized autonomous insurance platform built around openness, privacy and fairness, powered by blockchain innovation that brings together individuals, companies and governments in a digital world. Asure has worked on projects with Distributed Ledger Technology and projects with a focus on artificial intelligence in the context of insurance.
