    Insurance 2025: Smart Contracts

    [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

    • This paper will explore how these three transformative technologies might be woven together to create a single platform, enabling insurers to mitigate claim events, slash operating costs and – – improve the customer experience.
    • The HISC platform will also allow insurers to help clients – – optimize their operations, resulting in increased efficiency, improved margins and greater operational certainty.
    • Figure 2 is a high-level illustration of the HISC platform components shared by an insurer and a foundry, and some key points of interface and data exchange.
    • (Technical challenge: medium; implementation challenge: medium) – – Neither HISCs nor the platform can be deployed on a public blockchain, so there must be some DLT standard broadly adopted by the industry.
    • (Technical challenge: low; implementation challenge: low) – – The HISC platform described in this paper is closer to the end state than it is the next step of how these disruptive technologies will affect P&C insurance.

    Writing robust smart contracts in Solidity –

    [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

    • Any contract which inherits Ownable will have owner set to the caller at the time of its creation, and any of its functions implementing onlyOwner modifier will not accept calls from another account.
    • Here msg.sender in EternalStorage is the Organisation contract which then becomes the only address allowed to write to storage.
    • Note on Libraries: We use a library contract (ProposalsLibrary) to attach a set of functions to EternalStorage, so effectively message calls flow through the following chain: Organisation – ProposalsLibrary – EternalStorage.
    • However, since libraries in Solidity pass on the msg.value and msg.sender values, calls to EternalStorage have msg.sender as the Organisation contract address and not ProposalsLibrary address.
    • For this we have delegated the role of creating EternalStorage and Organisation to Parent contract, which are both created via the function.
