Dovu

Rewarding stakeholders is transformed by blockchain technology. Whether you’re working on connected cars, public transport, or autonomous vehicles, the DOV token facilitates a new transfer of value. DOV is a token you earn and spend by sharing and changing the way you travel. This could take the form of sharing data, or for example, rewarding green behaviour. These tokens then feed back into the ecosystem through mobility related transactions, be that offsetting the cost of a car, fuel for that car, paying for a flight, or just riding the bus. Connecting closed ecosystems, the DOV token is ubiquitous, providing instant liquidity and utility.

Liftango

Liftango uses GPS to match up drivers and passengers for rideshares and provides updates on pick-up status. This reassures passengers that their ride is on the way -- and eliminates any worries about missed connections. Plus, passengers don't need to call drivers about pick ups and create unnecessary disruptions.

The result: fewer distracted drivers and safer roads. 

We brought our Liftango concept to the National Roads and Motorists' Association (NRMA) -- and earned acceptance into the NRMA Jumpstart program run by Slingshot. This prestigious program provides emerging businesses with capital, expert mentoring, and access to high-profile potential customers.
