SnagRide Building on Origin - Announcing our partnership with Origin Protocol

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SnagRide, America's first long-distance ridesharing community that combines artificial intelligence with blockchain technology through Smart Contracts, is partnering with Origin Protocol. At SnagRide, our primary goal is to decentralize the RideSharing Industry and put control back into the hands of drivers and riders. Thanks to this partnership, we are pleased to announce that we will be integrating SnagRide with Origin Protocol to further our mission of efficiently bringing together drivers and passengers willing to travel together between cities and sharing the cost of the trip.

Origin Protocol enables both traditional marketplaces and fractional-use or sharing economy marketplaces (like short-term rentals or ride sharing) to function in a completely distributed way using Ethereum and IPFS. The SnagRide team is excited to be building on the Origin platform and working with their talented developers. Origin is widely respected in the blockchain community—they are backed by Pantera Capital and the founders have a long track record with venture-backed companies.

SnagRide is all about creating and fostering a synergistic long-distance ridesharing community. This partnership with Origin and their development team will allow us to get to market faster and the shared network effects of building on the Origin platform will make user acquisition and adoption easier.

Our SnagRide team very much looks forward to tackling the omplex technology and product challenges in achieving our vision. With the help of Origin, SnagRide will construct a long distance ridesharing ecosystem that is easy and convenient for cost-conscious travelers who prefer to travel by car on medium to long distance trips while having a congenial experience and reducing their carbon footprint.

"SnagRide is a great example of a project that is trying to fill a tremendous gap in the ride-sharing market (mid and long distance rides) in a fair and open way. We are thrilled that SnagRide has decided to build on the Origin Platform and we look forward to collaborating with SnagRide and their team."  
Josh Fraser, Cofounder, Origin Protocol

"We conceived SnagRide as an innovative transportation platform that uses technology to make long distance carpooling very easy and affordable for the traveling public. We are excited to bring Origin Protocol on board to help us implement that vision."
Terry Chan, CEO, SnagRide
