Didi, China based ride sharing company to Launch Blockchain-Based Ride Hailing App

Weixing Chen, founder of Kuaidi Dache that merged with Didi to become the leading Chinese ride hailing company Didi Chuxing, is planning to launch a blockchain-based ride hailing app to rival current operators in safety and efficiency.

“With the use of blockchain, we can build a set of economic systems different from the previous ones…We can direct traffic from the Internet and add on different services to meet users’ needs.”

Chen is teaming up with Yang Jun, a co-founder of Chinese on-demand local services firm Meituan, to launch the product. The ultimate aim is to create a platform that offers life-style services encompassing ride hailing, deliveries and others.
