We use blockchain to give users more control over their own insurance and we replace paperwork and humans with machine learning. This way we can automate insurance processes like risk analysis and claim verification.

In 2011, whilst researching opportunities in peer to peer mobile payments he was introduced to blockchain and has been researching commercial applications of the technology ever since. His research eventually discovered the “tontine” which is a co-operative longevity insurance product. Tontines were the blockbuster products of the US insurance industry until all of the major insurers had been convicted of overcharging fees & tampering with the tontine ledgers. In 2017 Dean founded TontineTrust, which is utilizing AI & smart contracts to revive the global tontine industry & in the words of one $200bn insurer is they are about to “Uberise pensions”.
