Are you curious about the advancement of blockchain pilot projects? Get behind the scenes of relevant use cases with us. Future Atelier has interviewed Oliver Terbu and Alice Nawfal from uPort (spoke of ConsenSys) and Philipp Zollinger (CMO) and Christian Raemy (CEO/CTO) from the crypto bike company AirBie.
AirBie has built a prototype of a GPS-tracked Smart Bike Lock to be installed on bicycles for a free-floating bike sharing system. To manage digital identification/managing access rights, AirBie is relying on uPort — where users of AirBie share credentials (stored on their uPort wallet) with the AirBie mobile app to verify their identity and access the service.
Project start date: January 2018
Current project state:
Pilot in Zug since November 2018, open for all citizens of the city of Zug that have obtained a uPort-issued Zug ID.
Industrialization of the smart lock to sell it worldwide (including digital ID)
