Insureum's idea of creating an inclusive insurance ecosystem is brilliant! Very Experienced Team with relevant experience and background, Team members' Profiles Look Very Professional. A line of advisors is also high-powered. Well Structured, elegant website. Comprehensive White Paper, there is also a Fast Fact Document to help get a better overview. Clear Roadmap which extends to 2022. Good Press Coverage.
Risks and disadvantages
Only one insurance Advisor. Social platforms' numbers are not spectacular. Only 15% of Fund distribution adds up to Marketing.
Insureum has all the competitive advantages to take over the whole insurance industry. Team and Advisory Board has enough power to disrupt it with their brand new product.
When is the token sale?
The token sales will take place in May 30th, 2018.
How much of the total tokens will be sold to the public?
We are planning to sell 197M ISR and raise 20M USD.
What is the total market cap for ICO?
Total market cap will be around USD 30M initially. We will sell about 65% of the total tokens (USD ~20M amount) and use USD ~10M for the protocol development. You can find more details on our whitepaper.
Where is Zikto based? Are you only concentrated on the Korean/Asian market?
While our main office is located in Seoul, our service is not limited to Korea. Zikto Walk (formerly Arki) has been sold to individuals and companies across the USA and EU. Our Insureum Protocol is targeting insurers, developers, and policy holders across the globe.
Why insurance? Why did the team shift focus after launching a wearable?
While analyzing the movement and lifecycle data from Zikto Walk, we found that people's lifecycle data had huge potential to help those outside of the wearable and fitness industry. The insurance industry is one that needs this data to create real policies for real people. There are also many individual developers who want to monetize their own products and services.
We believe that by decentralizing some of these processes and collecting them all in the same ecosystem, we will solve long standing pain points from all parties in the industry.
What is Insureum?
Insureum (ISR; Insurance + Ethereum) is a cryptocurrency that is exchanged between insurance providers, developers and insurance users. It is most commonly transacted between data providers and data requestors. Users can sell it, and data providers can use it to buy more data
Why is it based on Ethereum, not Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies?
Insureum will be benefited from the fact that Ethereum is already widely-used and well-recognized as a secure blockchain platform. Also, Ethereum has two distinctive features which are smart contracts and Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs).
Who are the players in The Insureum Protocol?
There will be three main player groups, who are the stakeholders of the insurance industry: Insurance companies, 3rd parties, and the users/policyholders. Insurance companies include all global companies and local startups, like P2P insurers. 3rd parties mainly include app developers, GA (General Agencies for sales), inspectors, and other players who can add value to the Protocol. Users and policyholders are the users of the 3rd parties and consumers of the insurance companies.
