Skedaddle, a New York-based bus chartering service that allows anyone to create a route and find other riders, is launching an Initial Coin Offering, or ICO, in Jan. to fund a side project that aims to eliminate tipping in the service industry.
The "Kudos Project" will run on the Ethereum blockchain, allowing customers to rate any transaction they make, Skedaddle co-founder and CEO Adam Nestler told Business Insider.
Those ratings, for anyone from your Uber driver to restaurant server to grocery supermarket cashier, are then instantly published to a decentralized database that allows anyone using the system to see the ratings that then follow an employee from one job to another throughout the full gig economy.
They also function as a "reward" for the worker in lieu of a tip. Unfortunately, those rewards will only work within the Kudos system. So to completely replace tips, the project will have to reach meaningful scale, something Nestler is convinced is a very real possibility.
