With the rapid development of the Internet, more and more network technologies are used for the taxi service. At present, a number of popular online taxi-hailing platforms have emerged in the taxi market in China, which have played a significant role for the convenience of hailing taxi. The appearance of the traditional online taxi-hailing platforms has provided new ideas for resolving previous conflicts, and they also have some defects in management and profit model. To address these problems, we propose a scheme for the online taxi-hailing platform based on the blockchain technology, aiming at improving the security and fairness of traditional online taxi-hailing platform.
