Largo is changing the game

The global financial system with the centralized ecosystem has been a great concern for the individual as well as organizations. In fact, the financial impact of the ongoing COVID-19 situation certainly scored higher than the old financial crises.

While financial regulators of some of the biggest countries have employed effective measures, whether or not these measures are really crisis-proof for centralized financial institutions remained a mystery.

Considering the various networks of middlemen existing within the current financial ecosystem, one would easily notice how palatable and susceptible the sector is to hackers and other actors which pose great security threats. With cybercriminals targeting the industry 300 times more than any other sector, financial intermediaries such as money transfers and exchanges put customers' funds through a network of criminal-infested channels.

The unreliability of current classical insurance

Over a few decades, classical insurance institutions have garnered the disrespect of potential customers. As much as insurance services seem to look indispensable, issues regarding mismanagement, economic instability, lack of trust as well as excessive politicization have brought the industry to a point where investors now look forward to having a better system.

Insurance analyser (IA) reports that many traditional insurance companies refuse to own up to responsibilities and promises. This is particularly possible to perpetuate due to the unavailability of decentralization policies and peer-to-peer customer relationships as offered by their blockchain counterparts.

Similarly, itpoportal reports that current classical insurance's growth has slumped by more than 90% with the last five years. For instance, in 2006, the sector recorded a mere 12.5% growth and the rate fell dramatically in the following years, touching around 1% in 2010. However, the industry recorded little success later. In 2018, S&P reported that the annual growth rate had risen to about 3-5%.

This goes contrary to popular crypto exchange, Coinbase's opinion on how insurers should better treat their customers: 

"Companies should NOT promise preferential status to specific customers on policies that are meant to cover all customers. This is commonly known as First Loss Payee status on a specific policy and it means that a specific customer gets preference for payouts under the policy. While we firmly believe that the future of cryptocurrency insurance is per-customer policies (see more on that below), we do not believe that assigning first loss payee status on what should be a policy meant to benefit all customers is the right way to get there."

Therefore, a wave of crypto startups has washed up on the shores of the financial industry in the last couple of years. The industry big boys, aka banks and exchanges, which have seemed invincible up till now are being challenged to a new world of totally visible and completely decentralized business ideas.

Now, there are numerous crypto startups which are racing to take advantage of the flaws within classical insurance bodies and with the existing global financial ecosystem which contributes to numerous inequalities. These startups have recognized the need for a better financial solution.

A shift towards decentralized token insurance and the need for this new-born industry

The growth and developments already recorded on the blockchain have evidently outpaced the underlying technology itself and the scale of further innovative inclusions is impossible to evaluate. Considering the security aspect of the blockchain technology, marketplaces and platforms like cryptocurrency exchanges acting as the reservoir for storage of cryptocurrencies have, unfortunately, become the target for many astute and nefarious "behind-the-scenes" players (hackers) aiming to find a gold mine. However, with an ever-increasing market capitalization, a value which has now touched around $220 billion, the need and demand for token insurance has skyrocketed over a short period of time.

Despite the blockchain technology backing cryptocurrencies, recent events have proven that cybersecurity remains a major threat to the integration of blockchain technology into the real world financial ecosystem. With the availability of Decentralised finance which is built on top of public blockchains, everyone is free to transact the money without limitations of centralized systems, with fees almost equal to zero and without having to deal with middlemen/central authority.

Bitcoin and Ethereum are two of the most profound instances of decentralized digital currency from the past many years. However, if you seek to ensure the security and transact your funds with convenience, a brand new platform dubbed, ‘Largo’ will be a trusted hand.
