About Asure

Asure is an open decentralized autonomous insurance platform built around openness, privacy and fairness, powered by blockchain innovation that brings together individuals, companies and governments in a digital world.
What is the Vision?

People around the world enjoy their lives without having to worry about any risks or losses.

Who is behind Asure?

The Asure team is a group of insurance and technology experts with decades of experience in the industry. We have worked on projects with Distributed Ledger Technology and projects with a focus on artificial intelligence in the context of insurance.

Why Asure Foundation?

It is the foundation's goal to showcase and assist in how solutions will be developed. Therefore the foundation is doing active research and will share their findings with the broader community by

  • proposing specifications (AIP)
  • providing reference implementations
  • ensure the future growth of the Asure platform

The main areas of research are social insurance and especially pay-as-you-go social security systems used by governments around the world.

How will we scale?

As former business and IT specialists, we have access to consulting companies that will help to accelerate the development in early stages of the project. Our CEO Paul Mizel has gained invaluable experience in team building strategies and activities for multiple clients in Germany as well as in Kiev, Ukraine.

We're also partnering up with well-established companies and international research communities within the insurance industry to build up an entire ecosystem around Asure.

Solutions

"We will enable governments around the world to establish pay-as-you-go social security systems and assist in migrating existing ones to the Asure platform so they take advantage of the blockchain technology."

Paul Mizel, CEO
Pay-as-you-go social security systems

Many countries have social security systems providing basic needs to citizens who are unemployed, ill or retired.

Pay-as-you-go systems can be used to fund social security systems. Premiums will be used to pay benefits directly and no or a small reserve is build. Countries, in difference to private insurance companies, can guarantee continuous premiums by making social security systems mandatory and therefore don't need coverage capital.

Due to their scale and longevity, administrative expenses of social security systems are extremely high. By leveraging the blockchain technology and the Asure platform we are able to cut costs and build secure systems for million of people.

Advantages through the use of blockchain

The blockchain technology offers the benefits of traceability and cost-effectiveness. Put simply, a blockchain can be used to track the movement of goods, their origin, quantity and so forth. This brings about a new level of transparency to Asure ecosystems - simplifying processes such as ownership transfer and payments.

In addition to transparency, there are also advantages in reducing or avoiding unnecessary costs for IT infrastructure and reducing the costs for internal and external financial transactions, financial reporting and administration.

All transactions are cryptographically coupled and forgery-proof, which creates trust in the Asure ecosystem.

Case Study: German pay-as-you-go pension system

With the conversion to the so-called generation contract, it was possible to set up a pay-as-you-go pension system that for the first time made income and contribution-related wage compensation benefits possible in order to secure a livelihood in old age.

Today, the german pension system includes 53.8 million active insureds (Dec. 2015) and 20.9 million retirees (Jul. 2016). In 2016, the pension system was in charge of €295 billion from which €3.85 billion have been used for administrative expenses.

Governments, collaboration and research partners

We are looking for governments and collaboration partners around the world that are interested in introducing new social security systems. Also we are interested in shifting existing social security systems to the blockchain.

Asure dApp

The Asure dApp will become the reference implementation for dApps using the Asure protocol and platform. It will feature

  • a technical feasibility study of the german statutory pension system implemented on the Ethereum blockchain and the Asure protocol / platform.
  • a complete wallet implementation.
  • an overview and management of your insurance policies.
  • an insurance store to find and buy insurance policies.

Please try out the Asure dApp which runs currently on the Ethereum Rinkiby testnet. https://dapp.asure.io

This implementation is still very much a work in progress. It can be used for testing, but it should not be used for real funds. We do our best to identify and fix problems, and implement missing features.

Platform

The Asure platform provides a solid foundation for a broad spectrum of insurance solutions and products. It enables individuals, companies, and governments to develop, run and maintain solutions which satisfy customers needs.

The Asure platform is open-source (MIT licensed) and development is happening in the public. The Asure Foundation, together with the broader community, will ensure the future growth of the platform. Therefore, the Asure Foundation specifies open standards (AIPs) within the insurance industry using the Asure platform and blockchain technology to enables the transition towards an open and decentralized insurance infrastructure of the future.

TRANSPARENCY
Data around products and services will be openly available to engage community developers in platform support and development. Also, Asure can easily be verified and extended by the broader community as all specifications and the source code will be publicly available.
COST REDUCTION
A full insurance platform with advanced, but easy to use functions for participants, including predictive analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning and robust self-sustaining economy, based on smart contracts that will reduce administrative expenses by up to 98%.
FLEXIBILITY
We believe that insurance is a fundamental human right. New products can be contributed by and for everyone around the world. In a free and self-regulated market, the best services and products prevail.
