Travel is a massive emitter of carbon dioxide and other harmful pollutants, which will therefore change towards green travel with higher convenience and security.
Even when we travel is currently hampered due to COVID-19, we all will see a surge in the travel industry as soon as the travel restrictions are lifted again. But this will act against any measure to reduce carbon emissions to net-zero by 2040.
Therefore let's paint a less grim picture how we envision traveling for the future, but before we do that, we want to make sure to get the idea across by showing you how the 'centralized' version of such a platform looks like.
Claiming final payment can be automated once a certain mode of transport is used or in case of not using a pre-booked transport, a refund can be claimed by the traveler.
Decentralization is a key success factor in this use case, as the centralized approach is rigid and expensive. Once we see a little better penetration of DIDs, VCs and digital wallets, it will become obvious to everyone that this is a massive improvement over the status quo.
