TRIP connects drivers and riders
The Rideshare Protocol (TRIP) is a novel organizational structure that allows drivers, riders, and operators to jointly build a competitive marketplace for ridesharing. TRIP as a decentralized protocol strikes a more favorable balance between competition and cooperation than centralized ridesharing systems while increasing safety, quality, and earnings for all network participants. To overcome the network effects of existing platforms, a coordination mechanism allows participants to orchestrate a migration.
"Whereas most technologies tend to automate workers on the periphery doing menial tasks, blockchains automate away the center. Instead of putting the taxi driver out of a job, blockchain puts Uber out of a job and lets the taxi drivers work with the customer directly."- Vitalik Buterin
