DJI, one of the world’s leading drone manufacturers, and ShareRing, an Australian-based blockchain startup, have partnered up to make sharing and renting drone easy and efficient. DJI plans to use ShareRing’s token, a secure digital placeholder for real-world monetary assets, to loan out their drones to governments, corporations, and trade events. While the exact details of this initiative are yet to be determined, there will be a test roll-out of this program in Australia beginning on August 18, 2018. Of course, whether DJI plans to jump into the drone rental business remains unknown. According to ShareRing’s co-founder and CEO, Tim Bos, “DJI and their distributors will help influence the structure of our APIs and functionality of the apps that we are creating. This is essentially a pilot partnership to provide an online service with DJI in Australia only before discussing further implementations elsewhere.”
