Cryptocurrency & Blockchain Insurance: New Exposures and New Insurance Needs

August 14, 2018 11:00 AM

Advisen is hosting a free, one hour webinar exploring the growing insurance needs for cryptocurrency and blockchain. This is an exciting time to be involved in cryptocurrency and blockchain. They have become rapidly growing in their importance to the economy. New applications are being conceived and implemented that employ these technologies. At the same time, regulators are seeking to provide protection for investors and consumers without stymieing innovation.

This environment has been compared to the Wild West. While some claim to be making millions, exposures are evolving rapidly, multi-million dollar thefts of cryptocurrency are being reported, and investors may litigate when values plummet.

Insurers are seeking to create coverages to respond to this evolving market. This has the potential to provide organic growth for the industry, but the risks could outweigh the rewards. Join host Jim Blinn as he guides a panel discussion exploring cryptocurrency, blockchain and commercial insurance.
