Dardan Isufi: Ride-share App Entirely Based on Blockchain, Connecting Riders to Drivers With Pre-determined and Fixed Pricing

Founded in Montreal in 2019, we’re a ride-share app entirely based on blockchain, connecting riders to drivers with pre-determined and fixed pricing. We also provide businesses with the ability to offer instant and on demand deliveries by seamlessly integrating with online ordering platforms and marketplaces. Ultimately, we’re a mobility platform for both ride-share and delivery.

Tell us about yourself?

Our co-founders are Raphaël Gaudreault and Dardan Isufi, two young students who started the whole thing when they were in their twenties. Raphaël studies software engineering at Laval University while Dardan graduated in political science at McGill University. Motivated to improve economic disparities with decentralized technology, they developed a mobility network across different cities to meet growing local needs, all in a socially responsible manner.

If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?

The most valuable piece of advice is that time is the most precious resource a team has, and it should be used wisely.

What problem does your business solve?

In the ride-share, we’re regaining riders’ trust with stable fares, without surge-pricing, but above all, we increase the income of drivers while giving them a voice in decision-making bodies. For the delivery, we offer instantaneity but without commission for businesses and this, by simple integration to any online ordering website.

What is the inspiration behind your business?

What motivates us is the many opportunities that surround us. Each mobility issue is a new avenue for our platform which we franchise. Wherever there ‘ a need to optimize or speed up transport, we want to solve it.

What is your magic sauce?

The secret of our growth is the human relationship which is placed at the center of our platform. We first make sure that the drivers are comfortable, at all time assisted, and well paid in order to raise the service standard in ride-share and delivery. But this also applies to customer service for riders and to the onboarding process for businesses.

What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?

For the next five years, we want to franchise our platform across more cities to expand our network of drivers and thus better meet instant mobility needs. We therefore focus on the product, but also on sustainable growth.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?

The advent of the COVID-19 pandemic has been a huge challenge to overcome. This has pushed us to make a pivot with the addition of delivery to our services. It turned out to be the most daring decision we have ever taken, which has allowed us to grow 700% in less than a year.
