Abstract


This article investigates the feasibility of designing a comprehensive insurance solution without the involvement of insurers or intermediaries. The study begins by the introduction of the blockchain and smart contract concept and their transformative potential on many sectors, of which the insurance market. A novel Peer-to-Peer home insurance model using the parametric concept is presented, answering a real-world issue. To validate the concept, the model is realized on an Ethereum blockchain testbed. Results of the demonstration reveal the feasibility of the solution and the potential of this type of application to streamline insurance processes, enhance transparency, and reduce reliance on intermediaries. This article contributes to the ongoing evolution of the insurance by examining the paradigm shift from centralized to decentralized models. And by addressing the ability of blockchain and smart contracts to realize this shift.

Author Keywords: blockchain, smart contract, P2P insurance, parametric insurance.
