Elevating Uno Re Claims DAO: The Journey Towards a Multisig Paradigm and Candidate Line-up

Title: Elevating Uno Re Claims DAO: The Journey Towards a Multisig Paradigm and Candidate Line-up
Scope: Protocol Improvement Proposal
Authors: Adam C.


The relaunch of contracts within UNO DAO heralds a significant enhancement in the claims process, aimed at bolstering its robustness and security. The incorporation of UMA, an Optimistic Oracle, alongside the introduction of a new entity, Claims DAO, marks a notable evolution. Claims DAO is set to employ a multisig approach for its decision-making process, ensuring a more secure and efficient system.

Implementing a multi-signature wallet strategy will protect us from incidents like November 14th, 2023. Requiring multiple signatures for transactions adds a layer of security, adding a layer of decentralization, avoiding conflicts of interest, and preventing unauthorized access, and fraudulent activities.

What’s a multisig?

Multisig is a digital signature scheme that allows multiple individuals to jointly control a single account or transaction - in the case of Claims DAO approve/reject the claim.

The key benefits for Uno Re:

  • Enhanced Security: Multisig requires multiple private keys to authorize a transaction, adding an extra layer of security. This means that even if one key is compromised, the decision process remains safe as the attacker would need access to multiple keys.

  • Risk Distribution: By distributing control among multiple parties, multisig reduces the risk associated with single points of failure. It also allows for democratic control, where

  • multiple members can reach a more fair decision.


New Claim Process

We’ve revamped the whole claim flow, it will consist of the following steps:

  1. Claim Submission: Users submit a claim request with details of the exploit/incident.

  2. In the first instance an insurance claim will go to UMA, an optimistic oracle.

UMA’s Oracle arbitration process is designed to resolve disputes regarding the accuracy of data provided by oracles on the UMA protocol. When a dispute arises, it is submitted to a decentralized network of judges who review evidence from both parties. These judges vote on the outcome, with their voting power determined by their reputation within the network. If consensus is reached, the dispute is resolved, and the oracle’s data is updated accordingly.

If for technical reasons UMA Oracle cannot be reached, the system falls back to the Claims DAO process.

  1. Claims DAO will be a five member committee (multisig) which will review the claim and decide on its validity. At least three members of the committee will be impartial to Uno Re to make sure that the assessment is fair. The majority will comprise three out of five signatures.

Claim DAO Assessors Candidates

The qualities we looked for:

  • Expertise in Smart Contracts and Insurance: Candidates should have good knowledge of smart contracts, including their architecture and potential vulnerabilities, as well as understanding insurance principles, risk assessment, and claims management.

  • Impartiality and Fairness: Members must demonstrate impartiality and fairness in their decision-making processes, ensuring that decisions benefit the DAO and its stakeholders as a whole, rather than favoring personal interests or biases.

  • Proficiency in Multi-Signature Wallet Management: Experience in operating multi-signature wallets is essential for securely managing funds and executing transactions within the DAO. Candidates should be familiar with managing, and safeguarding multi-sig arrangements to prevent unauthorized access and ensure proper governance.

  • Transaction Debugging Skills: Candidates should possess strong transaction debugging skills, allowing them to effectively analyze transaction data, diagnose errors or discrepancies, and implement solutions to ensure smooth transaction execution within the DAO’s ecosystem.

  • Ability to Detect Misbehavior: Candidates must have the ability to distinguish between intentional counterparty misbehavior and instances of private key compromise. This requires keen analytical skills and experience in detecting and mitigating fraudulent activities or security breaches

In Crypto since 2016, Lucas soon realized that this technology will have a great impact on the way we deal with finances and interact with each other. Being an avid supporter of decentralization and democratization of finance, Lukas is willing to fight for the positive in everything and sees Web3 as an instrument to give power back to the people but at the same time achieve contrary goals.

In 2017, Lukas had an innovative idea aimed at transforming interactions with advertisements. He became involved with a Blockchain Startup named GoForit Walk and Win, contributing significantly to their token launch, covering technical, legal, and community aspects. Following this, in 2019, he ventured into launching his own crypto casino. Initially a success, the venture unfortunately faced a significant setback due to a hack, serving as a major learning experience. The absence of a service like Uno Re at that time led to the closure of his operations.

Subsequently, he took up a pivotal role at the Blockchance Conference and also became a shareholder. Since 2022, he has been the Founder and CEO of a software development company specializing in business process automation, automated contact management, CRM System automation, lead generation, and advisory. Alongside this, he has been actively investing in about 150 early-stage projects since 2020.

Conclusion and Next Steps:

This presentation aims to spark an enlightening discussion within the Uno Re community and gather valuable input. Moving forward, we will place the decision on snapshot to facilitate UNO DAO members in casting their votes. The primary focus in the voting process would be to identify whether the proposal aligns with Uno Re’s strategic objectives, its vision for improved security, and growth aspirations in the dynamic market environment.
