Etherisc builds decentralized insurance. The vision is to create a decentralized insurance platform that enables anyone to build their own insurance products on the Ethereum blockchain. Etherisc Flight Delay at is the first working product using the platform, a real insurance business operating with smart contracts on Ethereum. Initially launched over a year ago for Devcon2, the decentralized app is now legal, licensed and regulated insurance and sells flight delay policies to paying customers. The Flight Delay smart contracts generate real revenue from insurance premiums in ETH and fiat. Christoph will present the flight delay product, share learnings from the development and first weeks of operation. Speaker:
