Urban public transportation will become increasingly crowded and unsustainable in the future that will result in an increased dependency on ride-hailing corporations like Uber and Lyft to handle transportation needs of the common people. As importance of ride-hailing services grow, concerns related to exploitation of drivers and riders will grow with it as these corporations keep taking cut off driver’s fee, impose surcharges and boost their profits by violating privacy rights of its users. Not to mention the many locations where these corporations refuse to offer their services for some reason or other. Here comes the need of an autonomous ride-hailing service that nobody controls but the people who use it. A service that is available everywhere and at all times.

Keen takes care of itself

Keen mobile app will interact with Keenchain, a fork of Ethereum blockchain running as a dedicated network. It will be optimized for Keen ecosystem to steer clear of inherent drawbacks in ethereum mainnet. Since there is no central authority involved, there is no single point of failure. Everything is processed through smart contracts and becomes a part of the blockchain.

 

Keen is everywhere!

Keen will be a global platform available to everyone who wishes to use it irrespective of their geographical location. Mobile apps will be developed to be compatible with maximum number of Android and iOS devices with backward compatibility for all OS versions that have even just 1% or more usage share. This means that all versions starting from Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and iOS 9 will be supported by the app.

 

Keen is economical

Ride hailing corporations want to keep a significant commission from the trip fare for themselves. This commission is taken from the normal fares and an even higher commission is recovered from surge fares. Surge fares should be applied in case of a higher demand for rides, but off-course the corporations do not provide any means to determine the authenticity of such surcharges.

Nobody runs Keen, so nobody takes any commissions from the fare and the entire fare paid by the rider goes to the driver. Drivers can choose to set their own fair rates to attract the highest number of rides and build their own customer base.

 

Community on-boards new drivers

Unlike traditional ride-hailing services that are competing against each other to take on-board as many drivers as possible, Keen relies on its community of riders to decide which new drivers are worthy of being part of the network and which ones are not.

Every new driver will be taken on-board provisionally and will give 2 free rides to volunteers. The first volunteer who gets the ride will take a profile picture of the driver through the app at the start of the ride and then provide 1st confirmation at the end of the ride. A second volunteer will take the next ride and will be shown the profile picture of the driver before start of the ride and provide the 2nd confirmation at the end of ride to confirm as a permanent driver. In case any of the volunteers choose not to confirm a driver, the process will be repeated from the start. Volunteers will be chosen based on their stake in the platform verified through ownership of Keen Tokens and riders can easily opt-out from taking free on-boarding rides through app settings.

 

Riders can build their own fleet

If a rider had a great experience with any of the drivers that was found through Keen then the rider can save them as a favorite and choose to ride with them again any number of times. Keen will choose the driver who is nearest to a rider’s location by default but riders can choose to ride with any of their previous drivers whom they find the most dependable.

 

Commit to Keen and you won’t be forgotten

Keen uses a Proof-of-Loyalty (PoL) algorithm to identify members who have committed the most for Keen’s ecosystem based on number of rides given or received, amount and duration of Keen tokens held in their wallets, ratings received for rides taken and how long they have been a part of Keen’s community as a driver or a rider. Members will be rewarded in form of Keen tokens, priority in ride selection and free rides.

 

Built-in wallet for conducing transactions

Keen mobile apps will have a built-in wallet that can be used to transfer Keen tokens to other members of the Keen ecosystem. This will support use of Keen Tokens as a store of value and tipping mechanism.

Lack of intuitiveness in design of blockchain applications has slowed down its mainstream adoption. Keen is being designed keeping everyone in mind including the grandmas and grandpas who will be using it to get their rides. It will be as simple as the traditional ride hailing apps and then slip in features that centralized apps can’t offer to enhance overall experience for both the riders and drivers.

Total of 70 million Keen Tokens (KNT) will ever be created and out of these 10% will be pre-mined for pre-sale participants and another 5% will be pre-mined for the developers. 30% of tokens will be generated during the ICO / token generation event that will be held in Q2, 2018 after the platform is live and Keen app has been released in alpha.

Pre-sale price is 1 ETH = 8,000 KNT!
