Democratized Digital Insurance Business
Over centuries, insurance business was overtaken by companies with huge capital. We bought insurance products designed by their own perspective and yet products are not designed by us or any talent around the world due to high barrier of the insurance industry.
Axinan is developing an Open Insurance Platform built on top of blockchain and smart contracts where transactions are kept immutable and transparent. Moreover, each claim will be paid out automatically by smart contract's design.
This platform aims to democratize insurance and significantly lower the barrier of entry at every layer of insurance ecosystem. Everyone can participate in designing, publishing, distribution, and investing of insurance products.
Axinan is a FinTech company (Singapore HQ + Jakarta office) with its focus on financial products on the whole ASIA marketplaces. We're a team of result-driven innovators and have developed successful products for leading companies including free return protection for Tokopedia.
We believed that blockchain is the next wave to digitization. Smart contracts powered by a blockchain could enforce customer rights and managing claims in a transparent, responsive and irrefutable manner. They are unbeatable combination when it comes to insurance area.

Democratized Digital Insurance
With Blockchain and Smart Contracts Technology
Designers can design various types of index insurance on the platform, such as agricultural products index, solar power sunshine index, ski insurance on the snow index and so on. Insurance companies do not have the resources to design all the products for these fragmented indices.
The Axinan platform can provide these fragmented protections designed and offered by our insurance community that everyone is involved in. Our highly automated system can also achieve real-time payment for index insurances.
Senior Citizen Insurance
It is difficult for elderly people over 65 years old to seek commercial medical insurance. Axinan platform can help these people to launch mutual insurances.

Leverage Insurance Smart Contract
There is a problem with long-term investment in today's blockchain solutions. In a transaction, buyers and sellers need to freeze all the capital in the smart contract until its maturity. The high capital requirement of this design does not encourage long-term investments based on smart contract.

The system also enables providing capital for long-term products as a profitable investment. Frequent long-term product transactions can also help our platform to build a secondary market for investment, to facilitate investors to cash in gains and losses and adjust trading strategies.
