SETH FLORY

VP of IT strat­egy and tech­nol­ogy in­no­va­tion, Na­tion­wide

Digital Insurance - - THE INNOVATORS -

Flory is the lia­son be­tween Na­tion­wide and the RiskBlock Al­liance, a con­sor­tium of in­sur­ers work­ing on blockchain tech­nol­ogy use cases for the in­dus­try. Shortly af­ter join­ing the group, Na­tion­wide agreed to pilot a blockchain-based proof-of-in­sur­ance con­cept. The in­surer has been mon­i­tor­ing blockchain for sev­eral years, Flory says, and this is the kind of busi­ness case that can at­tract peo­ple to the trans­for­ma­tive power of the tech­nol­ogy and drive real solutions for pol­i­cy­hold­ers: “This is some­thing that can be done quickly, ex­pose a lot of stake­hold­ers to blockchain as an un­der­ly­ing tech­nol­ogy and il­lus­trate the pur­pose of a fed­er­ated ledger.”
