The strategic business value of blockchain in Insurance Industry

Core technology leverages of blockchain

  • Immutability: It has the linear feature: new block is validated and added to the “end” of the previous block, building “chain” of data.
  • Security: using cryptography to achieve data security, essentially the hash function to validate transactions; to one specific input data, there is only one fixed output (hash). This means that it’s nearly impossible to change input data without leaving the trace.
  • Transparency: the blockchain database is open to every network users. They have the ability to access, view, read, and write their contents and relevant details (access ability based on which type of blockchain platform are being used).
