How about we get some roadmap or whitepaper, details are a bit sparse at the moment.

Invest because of profit potential, not cause of some fancy looking roadmap / whitepaper.

Is the underlying token used for making bids? Or is it the collateral ?

qtum is probably taking up all the hype right now cause of their star studded line up of backers. Dubious project at best. Doesn't deserve the 5 digit BTC raised at all.

Sounds reasonable so far, you need to expand your PR presence though and do more communication.

Stable, secure and working is more important than running the gimmicky bounty or sig campaigns. Just focus on getting the core dev right and the rest will follow.

Let's see some roadmap or some development screens. How much did you guys raise?

If you guys can give me a good marketing plan (which honestly isn't emphasised enough) I'd feel more confident in picking up some more. I know normally crowdsales have most of their action on the last day but for now, I think I've got a decent enough amount of coins. I'll see what the action's like on the last day and see if i'll fomo some more

Registered an account already. Depending on how well the ico does i'm probably going to buy a little more on the last day.

You guys should make an application to ICONOMI, might be able to get some funding help, they just raised like $12million dollars to invest.

They had carpooling in world war 2? I did not know that, that's quite interesting. I imagine not many people had cars back then, probably would have been upper class people exclusively. Why would they want to carpool ?

One question I have in mind is how can we get an accurate rating / reputation system if people are able to book journeys on behalf of other people perhaps not registered?
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [PRE-ANN][RMC]Ride My Car / Ride Share / proof of journey / on: September 27, 2016, 05:01:44 PM
Erm, seriously would you feel comfortable sitting in somebody's car who you don't know the name of? Sure you have his reg, but even then how would you know it's not some crook who stole the car and is about to kidnap you?

That's where all the fun is though..

Err no thanks, I'd rather have them do some id checks n what not before I use it. I know crypto is all about being free and anonymous but that doesn't work here.

Would you trust your wife to use this knowing absolutely anybody could be behind the wheel?


Usually, Uber does a background check on all of it's drivers, I think something similar will be done here although maybe initially it won't.

The information doesn't necessarily have to be publically available, the point is that in order to provide ride services, you do have to verify yourself. Obviously people can get round this too, but it does set a slightly higher entry barrier.

I'm not so interested in another Uber honestly. But for the sake of discussion, I would say that another model might work in regular bookings of trips.

Think about it, when someone needs to make the same journey regularly, they would normally take public transport, or drive their own car.  Now you can find someone who takes the same journey and book them regularly.

Yeah OP seens to be taking another route with some sustainable ideas. Hopefully will be able to build rapport with other commuters. Maybe a social platform or forum would be cool??

social platform and community participation will be the key to this project. Trusted rating system to ensure safe travel

I think feedback is key here. Perhaps some sort of mechanism to track feedback is needed? It would be pretty cool to be able to do this via a wallet!

Here, having attestation on the chain would be very useful. Making things like rating / identity immutable on the chain will help a great deal.

Now we're talking.

How about going back to the idea someone else mentioned about a rental market for cars. Smart property, QR Codes to unlock etc.  That would be awesome.

It might work for college kids going home for school breaks, but I guess there needs to be enough drivers making that journey back home. Those drivers also must have large enough cars cause obviously the students will take a lot of luggage with them.

Actually I think this use case would be perfect in colleges. It's a lot harder to book ubers for these long drives..

I think you're onto something here, perhaps marketing to universities would actually be the best place to start..

Set up a booth at a couple universities, perhaps hire a student ambassador to do some on site promotion / advertising, then that's your in.

This is probably more likely to get the foot in the door than just outright marketing to a whole city. It's going to be really difficult to take any market share from the likes of Uber, their burn rate would kill any funds you raise.

The other way I could see it work is if the grand plan is to get acquired by one of these large monopolies and build into their existing system. This is probably the best outcome overall.

Just offering my 2 cents from a business POV

The success of this coin depends on a number of factors.
Lets break them down for the sake of constructive criticism and a mutual interest in economics.

Your coin will be able to attain scale only if individuals switch to using your monetary system as a means to accept and give payments for rides.
Existing players like uber, lyft, didi possess a massive monopoly in global markets and have been able to invest billions towards keeping away activities from unions and the likes. While ride sharing as a concept is fairly interesting - it includes changing the behavior of possible users. Now take into context the fact that uber is about to release self driving cars and we are increasingly moving towards machine to machine payments.

The total user base for your coin will rely on

-Those using crypto
-The fraction of people using crypto knowing your coin
-The fraction of people using crypto knowing your coin with other ride shares around / drivers willing to take the coin
-The fraction of people using the crypto knowing your coin with other ride shares around / drivers willing to take the coin with access to a wallet and coin of some value.

That, is a very small market. And unless and until you have atleast a couple million dollars to invest into acquiring users, those buying this token are going to end up sitting on another bunch of tokens that can neither be used for ride shares nor be traded.

Sorry, I do not mean to bash on you but do re think your strategy.
Feel free to PM me if you'd like to discuss this further.



Good analysis, you have a good grasp of the economics of business.

It's scary to think that other rideshare businesses have basically been burning cash continuously in an effort to reach mass adoption. You do have very good points here..

Its been a while since I last felt like buying some just for the fun of it.

Some suggestions though - The name is actually ok for me, straight to the point and in a world with 'Pimp my ride' etc I don't think its out of the ordinary.

Start small, the biggest problems with projects with a good premise is promising the world and delivering the village.
You have a really good basic plan. And, even as a proof of concept, its still very much a project worth tackling.  Just dont claim to take down Uber on the get go, because that's just not going to happen.

Perhaps also share some of your personal background ?
How exactly are you going to fund developing ?

I bought a bitcoin of this and still haven't got my coins yet, my receive address is MTF6mr21DjfuFPKJFDm5UmuLpsxzPMgUbx

where are my coins??

I would pm hunnaryb, he's been online and the nodes have been updated. Also, I received my coins yesterday so you should have to? I went for a tiny amount so I wasn't going to be bothered if it turns out bad.

Anyway onwards and upwards, what's the situation with exchanges and I do you need a graphical designer? Maybe make a nicer ann and have an info page of some sort.

Sounds vaguely like CBX, I'll probably buy some, will follow.

I went for the ico but not that much, will probably see how it goes and maybe buy a little more. I like the smaller stuff, there's more of a chance for growth.
