As with any promising, new technology, distributed ledger technology (DLT), also known as blockchain, is often discussed in terms of being a proverbial “hammer” for many solutions, which in turn look like nails. The fact is that many potential applications under review could be built on a number of different platforms. How does an insurer identify those solutions that are most suitable for DLT and that have the greatest potential for return? This session provides insurers with an evaluation model to assist with the prioritization of distributed ledger applications. Insurance-specific use cases will be reviewed in detail and compared against one another to emphasize trade-offs which should be considered.
