MiCars is bringing innovation and revolution to car rental industry by combining it with the new blockchain technology.
It plans to offer hire full options vehicles 24/7 using a mobile application. In the current scenario, so much precious time is wasted when hiring a self-drive car through a rental agency as so many formalities are required to be fulfilled before getting the keys. But things will be different in case of MiCars as it aims to make the car hiring experience easy, convenient and ultra-fast.
How MiCars Works?
- Usually, the time user spends at a car-rental agency is much beyond than expected due to all the needed checks and formalities which one has to fulfill before taking the car out for its intended purpose. Not only much of the time is wasted in hiring but an equivalent amount of time is spent when the car is brought for return.
- Using the MiCars mobile application everything is done remotely from the comfort and convenience of one’s home or office right from registering as a customer, selecting the vehicle with the required insurance, taking the vehicle for the drive and returning it afterward. The application boasts of an ultra-performing GPS.
- Just before 1 hour of the hire time, a notification is received with a virtual key. The virtual key uses NFC technology and is required to unlock the vehicle which will be present at the MiCars station near you.
- The engine key is available inside the car itself.
- Payments for the hired cars are accepted through MiCars (MCR) tokens, which is a cryptocurrency issued through ETH ERC-20 blockchain. The mobile application will facilitate purchasing the MiCars tokens through a separate secured area for the same.
- The MiCars tokens will allow the consumers to sign a long-term hire in the near future.
- Payments by bank card are also accepted for making the entire process consumer friendly and easy.
- Return procedure is simplified too as the inspection is carried out by clicking photos, as necessary, by the consumer through his/her smartphone.
