Develop a ride-sharing synergetic contract using Fetch.AI technology. Over 100,000 FET tokens available in prizes.

Carpooling is great for your pocket and the environment, so it’s no surprise that ride-sharing apps like UberPool™ are so popular. To connect riders with drivers and process payments, apps charge a substantial fee. Fetch.AI’s synergetic computing technology provides the infrastructure to deliver this service without the middleman, returning power and profit to the individual.

We want you to build a ride-sharing service using our synergetic contracts and agents. With a prize pool of over 100,000 FET, we’re offering substantial rewards:

🥇 First prize: 50,000 FET
🥈 Second prize: 30,000 FET
🥉 Third prize: 20,000 FET

1,000 FET will be awarded to everyone who completes the project and delivers a working solution. Access resources and submit your application by the 31 August here.
