In early 2017, iXledger was founded in London, UK, by a team of entrepreneurs and technologists with experience in FinTech and InsurTech. The inspiration for launching iXledger came through work with insurance company executives. They shared consistent requirements for the improvement of strategic processes through innovative technologies like blockchain.
