Ukrainians will be able to travel using a single blockchain-backed ticket

Until the end of the year in Ukraine there will be a single through ticket for buses, railways and flights, backed by the blockchain. You can get it through a special application developed on the basis of distributed register technology. This was stated by the Minister of Infrastructure Vladimir Omelyan.

According to Omelyan, the application will be able to determine the user’s geolocation and build the route to the desired destination anywhere in the world, selecting several types of transport at once.

The minister also said that before the application starts in Ukraine a single register of bus carriers will be created, to which different companies can join. In its turn, blocking technology will avoid various frauds inside the service, the official added.
