Blockchain Technology – optional or mandatory for the insurance industry?
Blockchain is a concept hyped as panacea for many things. Until now,
it has been mainly known in the financial industry as the underlying
concept for distributed ledger applications (Bitcoin, Ethereum, R3, etc.).
It turns out that Blockchain as a concept can be applied in very different
industries, and that it can certainly develop disruptive effects. The transfer
of experience from other industries, specifically the financial industry in
this case, is a proven recipe for innovation. Therefore, iprotus, Software
for Corporate Leaders and AdNovum provide the technology and concept
knowledge to identify strategic use cases in a workshop together with
representatives of the insurance industry. Participation in the workshop
and lunch are free of charge.
