Blockchain & the Digital Transformation of Property Insurance
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/property-insurance/
Nov 24, 2020 - This project explores applications of blockchain technologies to the market for property insurance. The authors explain how distributed ledgers could simplify and speed up both proof of insurance and the processing of insurance claims and open up markets for microinsurance. Property insurers and insurtech innovators could offer a new generation of radically simplified and less expensive insurance products with simpler terms automated through smart contracts, which would reduce much of the operating costs of traditional insurance companies, their actuaries, accountants, and adjustors.

Patents and Blockchain Innovation
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/patents-and-blockchain-innovation/
Jan 29, 2018 - This research examines the basics of US patent law and its application to blockchain technologies, including the impact of Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank International decision. The author compares the benefits and the drawbacks of different patent strategies, such as voluntary communal coordination, and provides recommendations for future innovation and regulation so that the community can access foundational blockchain patents while the inventors and those who invested in the essential patents receive fair compensation.
Regulation: The Lion, The Unicorn, And The Crown
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/the-lion-the-unicorn-and-the-crown/
May 10, 2018 - In this research project, Joel Telpner gives us a guided tour of regulatory risk. Pulling lessons from regulating innovation in telecommunications and the financial markets, he focuses on the extent to which the blockchain represents unprecedented regulatory challenges. He advocates a level-headed approach to determining when regulation is necessary and, in such cases, the form that regulation should take, so as to minimize the unintended consequences. Using illustrations by the legendary political cartoonist John Tenniel and passages from Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass: and What Alice Found There, Telpner gives executiv...
Issued Patents on Blockchain Innovation
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/issued-patents-on-blockchain-innovation/
Aug 31, 2019 - This project surveys patents issued globally in the blockchain space, compares them to the nature and volume of patents in the Internet space, and puts them into categories of innovation. The author walks through a careful analysis of the claims of issued patents, for companies to decide whether to avoid such patents or to design around their claims. He identifies deficiencies in the patent office review of prior art, which—when rectified—could render a patent invalid. Finally, he discusses strategic uses of patent offices and the federal court system in the defense of or dispute over an issued patent.
