Blockchain Insurance Trends

Recently, Tidal Finance, the decentralized insurance project in Polkadot ecosystem, is relatively active now. It first announced the cooperation with Polygon, the scalability solution of Ethereum, to provide insurance services for the smart contracts of the Polygon network. Then announced the cooperation with Bifrost, the DeFi basic protocol of Polkadot, Tidal Finance will underwrite the vETH smart contract and provide protection for Bifrost's vToken through the mutual insurance pool model to strengthen the security level of the Bifrost platform. At the same time, the DeFi insurance protocol Cover Protocol announced that its V2 version has some problems after Quantstamp's security audit. The Cover team is currently solving these problems and is expected to officially release Cover V2 on 1st May. Cover V2 will launch two product lines, namely the peer-to-peer insurance market and the Cover crypto market.

Starting from this episode, we will introduce more in following episodes about some decentralized insurance projects appearing in various forms in the market of different countries.

Friendsurance, founded in Berlin, Germany in 2010, is a typical decentralized insurance. The founding team noticed that the pain points of traditional commercial insurance are the high expense and the lack of transparency. Many people have to pay high premiums every year without any return. Therefore, Friendsurance proposed a revolutionary P2P (peer-to-peer) insurance model for the first time to refund those members who did not make a claim at the end of each year. Friendsurance's model is that users purchase the insurance products on the Friendsurance platform, and then invite relatives and friends through social media such as Facebook and Linkedin to form a group of 4-16 people, in order to have the mutual insurance partnership. Of course, users do not need to invite relatives and friends. Friendsurance will automatically divide users into different group by the type of insurance they hold.

The premium that user paid will be divided into two parts, one part is used for the premium of traditional insurance products, and the other part will be used in the refund pool. If a member of the group is in danger, and the claim amount is small, the cost will be directly covered by the refund pool. If the claim amount exceeds the coverage of the refund pool, the insurance company will pay for the extra part. Therefore the model is about small claims are shared by members and large claims are paid by insurance companies. At the end of each year, if no member of the group makes a claim, each member can get a refund of the premium from the refund pool, up to 40%. Othserwise, in the case of a claim, the rewards for each member will be reduced accordingly. Friendsurance's P2P model has two major features. One is to use acquaintances to reduce risk control costs, and the other is to reduce the cost of information interaction through the Internet. Compared with traditional insurance products, Friendsurance's model can reduce costs by up to 50%. While giving consumers actual discounts, it also improves user satisfaction and loyalty level.
