The Insurance Industry's Digital Transformation via Blockchain Technology with Ryan Rugg and Nick Leimer

Transcript

Insurance is changing quickly these days and undergoing a digital transformation is not easy. Adding blockchain to the mix can change an entire architecture. When used appropriately, however, blockchain can become an indispensable tool for your ledger technology.

In this episode, we discuss the use of blockchain in insurance as well as how it applies to other industries such as banking and capital markets, healthcare and manufacturing.

Specifically, you will learn how companies are using Corda's smart contracts feature to create complex, logic-based, on-block content and events. Listen to how R3, with the open source Corda blockchain, is helping companies get started with blockchain today.
