The transport sector is at the beginning of a period of significant disruption, with new technologies, products, and services fundamentally shifting customer expectations and opportunities. The last decade has seen the introduction of mobility as a service with platforms such as Everest.
Everest, a decentralized mobility-as-a-service platform built on the Algorand blockchain that supplies urban transportation and logistics is set to launch its Initial DEX offering on the 20th of April 2022.
An IDO (Initial Decentralized Offering) is a crypto token offering that is run on a decentralized exchange (DEX) which gives users the liberty to lock funds in exchange for tokens,(our $EVR in this case).
The private sale starts from the 20th of April to the 26th of April with the $EVR selling at 1Algo for 74.62 $EVR. The minimum purchase for the private sale is 100 Algo. Then the Public sale runs from the 27th of April to the 4th of May with the minimum purchase of 25 Algo.
Everest is a blockchain-based decentralized mobility-as-a-service platform that provides urban transportation and logistics. Everest is developing an ecosystem to expand the transportation and logistics businesses on a decentralized blockchain network. Its primary goal is to assist the growth of the transportation and logistics sectors in Africa and beyond.
The transportation industry, like any other, has seen technological advancements. These changes have also created new challenges for the transportation industry. The challenges in the transportation sector have resulted in rising rates and poor service, leaving some stakeholders dissatisfied.
Expensive ride fares, a lack of administration, and excessive operating costs are just a few examples. Another significant difficulty has been the consistent increase in commission fees. Over the years, ride-sharing platforms have steadily increased the commissions they charge drivers. This has had a severe impact on drivers since some find it difficult to meet the costs of automobile fuel and maintenance while also remitting a considerable portion of their earnings to the firms.
As a result, Everest has devised a solution that will benefit all ecosystem players. Powered by blockchain technology, the Everest platform employs smart contracts, distributed ledger technology, and a transparent mechanism that ensures service efficiency. The protocol is designed to link drivers, riders, and other stakeholders, resulting in a tokenized economy of services and goods.
The services include decentralized ride-sharing, where you can order a ride at your convenience. Additionally, you can travel within and across cities through inter-city ride services.
Members of the public now have the opportunity to invest in the project by participating in its upcoming IDO.
