    It's very interesting. I already have insurance in the insurance company General , but I don't know if they provide similar services. Maybe it makes sense to find out this thing in more detail.

    The blockchain-based insurance have many advantages:
    1.much cheaper price and lower cost, especially for some simple and standard product, because it can save most management cost;
    2.trustable, less uncertainty, de-centralized mechanism could let policy holder make sure he(she) could get the compensation after claim other than refused by tranditional insurance company;
    3.service, more standard and quickly. All claim can be delt with soon and automatically.
    4.sharable, the policy holder and shareholder can share the profit.

    Actually many technologies has been matured in traditional insurance company, but the revolutionary business model couldn't work in traditional company.

    Today I tested a simple contact (open source code on internet). I hope I can develop a simple project in the next month.

    I work for the 2nd largest insurer in the world ( according to Forbes ), but not in the head office, but in Australia. I attended an event last year called "Insurance on the Blockchain" ... a lot of insurers have already developed in-house POC blockchain solutions, other worked with one of the Big4.

    I heard of a shipping company used blockchain to replace all of those paperwork to track items in shipping containers ( so everyone, including the insurer, gets the same copy of what, where, and when ) , even included an IoT to track where it is at the moment ( e.g. GPS coordinates that it is in the open sea ).

    What are you actually trying to achieve ?

    Sorry for late.
    Actually I hope to establish a totally online and intelligent contracts to replace the function of traditional insurance company, not only to replace part of the traditional work in insurance company. That means I will put the entire traditional process including underwriting, claim, and others in the intelligent contracts and other new business model, that's why I call it a revolutionary work.
    In the past 2 years I studied some details in insurance, technology of blockchain and some practices of internet company in China. I think it will be realized partly in at most 10 years.
    In recent 6 months I thought about the possible business model and plan to start from some simple and easy products and procedures.
