Blockchain technology in public transport

Blockchain Bus

Introduction 

VMC developed a new blockchain platform (VMC CORE) in an attempted to develop a fully open and decentralised payment and ticketing platform. The goal was to demonstrate a working platform. VMC was a venture initiated by the Itsavirus team. 

Transactions in marketplace are executed via a stable-coin called the VAI token. People use VAI to transact with the network while providers and stakeholders (such as governments or data providers) can share incentives and cooperate. VMC uses the consensus algorithm called Proof of Elapsed Time (PoET) to effectively achieve overall system reliability.
