Idea & Token
DAV is building a blockchain-based transportation platform that will allow you to buy or sell autonomous transportation services in a decentralized market. First of all it’s about autonomous cars. Though nowadays they are not widespread, cars without drivers is a strong tendency in the transportation field. As they say in DAV, you won’t hire drivers anymore, you will hire cars. You can use the platform not only as a consumer, but as an owner of an autonomous car as well, providing your services via the DAV protocol. And it doesn’t matter if you are an individual entrepreneur or a solid transportation company, all participants will have equal rights and possibilities to develop their business. One more vehicle type is autonomous drones you can use to send or receive anything and anywhere, and this technology is developing much faster than autonomous cars which is quite predictable. The orders on the platform will be implemented by using smart contracts based on the Ethereum blockchain.
To understand how serious this project is you should know that DAV is supported by such companies as
Google, NASA, SAP, GM, Ethereum, and UPS. The list is much more than solid.
DAV’s ERC-20-compliant token called DAV will be used for all the payments on the platform. The created tokens will be distributed the following way: 40% will be sold on ICO, 25% will be spent for bounties and partnerships, 20% will be kept for long-term budget, 15% will go to the team and advisors.
The team is fully packed with software developers and consists of 16 members covering such spheres as big data, machine learning, cryptocurrency, encryption, mobile apps, web apps, AI, self-driving cars, design, and marketing. CEO and founder Noam Copel, strategist and investor, has strong experience in cryptocurrencies, blockchain, and encryption, created the world’s first smartphone encryption system. They also have 8 advisors, former or current top specialists from NASA, Ethereum, SAP, UPS, General Motors, Bancor, and Equinix. In general, the team looks completely gathered and very strong.
What they have for now is an excellent cutting-edge technology idea, uniqueness of the project, strong team, an extremely solid list of enterprises supporting the project, released app for drone delivery, 100+ contributors on GitHub (the protocol is an open-source project). At the same time it’s quite a big question when autonomous cars will become a part of our everyday life. Autonomous drones are developing faster, but most of us still imagine them as a picture from future. Anyway we are sure the idea is exciting for everyone, and if the team will be able to bring it to life, the long-term perspective of the project is great.
If you still think self-driving cars and drone-based delivery is something from future, here’s the project to change your mind.

Decentralized Autonomous Vehicles (DAV). DAV is a computer network that will ultimately connect self-driving vehicles (such as cars, trucks, rovers, and drones) to everyone on that network, enabling them to discover, communicate, and transact using a token. Users can pay for the use of any of those vehicles with a token to get a ride or pick up and deliver a package. People who own those vehicles or the charging stations on the network can earn tokens for the services they provide. Users can have an entire network of self-driving vehicles at their fingertips to bring them anything, or to take them anywhere, with one token. Even in today’s transportation market, and during the transitional period before autonomous transportation reaches mass adoption, the decentralized transportation network and its underlying technology can create a variety of economic opportunities such as decentralized, on demand, manned, rides and deliveries.
