“I’m excited to join the advisory team on this project, and our company, Crypto IQ, is getting involved as well,” Shrem said. “InsurePal is a very interesting concept, and I like to get involved in blockchain projects that are not finance-related. This team has its past success. It has been involved with other companies and has performed well. I believe we can be the bridge between crypto and non-crypto insurance, which will be a very interesting thing.”

Vision, Experience and Industry Know-How Crucial For InsurePal’s Long-Term Success

The dedicated experts at InsurePal have lived for the project since day one.

And I think that people should come along, join their team and ICO to make sure it works out in the long run, as it is a great ride to be on.”
