We happily identify a growing number of Blockchain use cases for Transport, mobility, shared rides:
Top urbantech expert Katja Schechtner of OECD and MIT Senseable City Lab coordinates now blockchain for transport activities. With my focus on #ReturnOnSociety I support her to find applications beyond “traditional” crypto. We are interested to identify transport more related blockchain use cases. Applications range from transport logistics to shared rides to Mobility as a Service (MaaS).
Some were discussed at an OECD workshop at MIT Media Lab/Center for Future Civic Media and Toyota Research Institute.
There are a variety of related ICOs and companies working in the space.
