What is Etherisc?

Etherisc is a protocol to collectively build insurance products on the Ethereum blockchain.

How Etherisc works

A user can request to create an insurance product on the Etherisc site.

  • Here are some of the current / In-production products from the community.

Etherisc consists of

  • Risk pool, which holds a certain amount of reserve collateral used to issue and
  • underwrite insurance policies against a predefined set of insurable events, within
  • the framework of an insurance model.
  • Reinsurance pool, which holds extra collateral and reinsures the risk pool
    against catastrophic long-tail events
  • A risk management system, which is a set of rules that governs the issuance,
    supply, inflation, and deflation of a digital token. we suggest to name the token RSC-FDD.
    Tokens are sold to collateralize the reinsurance pool and entitle holders to
    dividends from the risk pool’s revenue stream.
  • A token marketplace, which allows participants to purchase and redeem tokens
    at economically fair and transparently calculated prices.

DIP holders stake tokens to earn part of insurance premiums paid.

Capital allocation

When a policy expires without a claim, its premium becomes revenue:

  1. 10% Risk pool to subsidize premiums.
  2. 20% Reinsurance pool for long-tail risk collateral
  3. 70% Holders of RSC-FDD tokens as dividends.

The reinsurance collateral is gathered through an offering of an initial fixed supply of RSC-FDD tokens (a crowdsale).
