Reinsurance Reimagined — UnoRe, an Introduction

With the development of blockchain technology, the one sector that holds the most promise (apart from finance, of course), is the insurance sector. One of the ways the big insurance companies hedge risks is by selling a part of their portfolios (partially or in full) to other institutional and deep-pocketed players, who are willing to take high-risk high-reward bets to substantially grow their wealth through a process called reinsurance.

Simply put, reinsurance can be called insurance for insurance companies. Currently, the process is dated, complex, inaccessible, and available only for the rich. UnoRe, however, promises to change the entire reinsurance scene upside down, by democratizing it using blockchains. With Unore, Reinsurance is Deigitized, Simplified and Democratized.

UnoRe — Reinsurance Reimagined

UnoRe’s reinsurance platform promises to introduce reinsurance to the current crypto-insurance protocol. This will allow existing insurance protocols to reinsure their products by transferring a portion of their risk to UnoRe (First phase). Insurance platforms are already hopping on the UnoRe bandwagon, as PolkaCover is reported to be the first partner to integrate their products with UnoRe.

By partnering with insurance protocols, the users of the platform will be able to invest in this high-risk high-return section of investments. The users of the platform will be able to invest in these assets (The second phase) using DAI and will be eligible for returns either as UNO tokens (the platform’s native token, higher reward ratios), or DAI. The platform works on a PoS to reach consensus, and users can earn additional rewards by staking the rewarded tokens on the platform.

The third phase of the platform allows the users to trade these risk profiles on the platform, similar to that of an exchange. The platform promises free-flowing information, including the loss ratios to help the users.

The Fourth phase promises a platform that enables its users to “Bring Your Own” Products, to truly revolutionize the insurtech sector. UnoRe promises to provide “all the necessary elements for the masses to come and build new and innovative products on [their] platform, which would then be added to the UnoRe reinsurance risk profiles.” The objective is to “enable innovators to create sustainable products which traditional insurance is too scared to even approach because of their obsolete underwriting methodologies and operational processes”.

The Governance will be initially taken care of by the UnoRe team, but eventually handed over to the members of the community, based on an individual’s experience, frequency, and seniority of the platform over the course of 2.5 years.

Parting Thoughts

The platform seems to focus on a niche of users looking to invest or trade in high-risk portfolios. UnoRe offers a way to revolutionise Insurtech as we see it now, and if it can truly bring in a brand new asset class to the public, this platform truly has the potential to be the one to look out for.
