Insurance is one of the industries, which will undergo a fundamental shift with the advent of Blockchain. The major benefits for Insurance are going to be improvements in customer experience, efficiency and new product creation. Transparency being one of the main characteristics of Blockchain will help in making Insurance transactions in a much safer and secure way. Smart Contracts powered by the oracles (not sure what this means) will automate the claims pay out and reduce the time taken to process claims in the advent of a natural disaster.
The implications of Blockchain for large Insurance companies will be that there would be a fundamental change in the underwriting process, the policy structure, and risk underwriting. As in other industries, the full potential of Blockchain applications will happen when Insurance companies, brokers, regulators, reinsurers and authorities will come together on a common Blockchain network.
