Key points of the letters of intent translated from Czech – The letter is similar for all clients
Subject: Support and expression of interest in the Callisto Enterprise blockchain implementation project results in QR payments and green mobility applications.
After studying the attached project description, I would like to express my interest in your project’s relative and final results, which you are preparing with the mentioned partners (Callisto Enterprise).
We are convinced that we can contribute effectively to the consultation and opposition of project results.
(…) We will therefore support the project in the areas of :
1) Consultations in search of the optimal form of functions for passengers, coordinators, and service customers,
2) Consultations to find the appropriate methods for integrating services and data sources,
3) We are ready to provide test data for non-commercial project development needs and, optionally, to provide an interface to test the function in the environment of the Hradec Králové and Pardubice regions (On other Letters its Moravskoslezký kraj and Liberecký).
We are ready to spearhead the trend and position our ecosystem as trendsetters.
From vision to reality
Public transport services guarantee our product’s usage at least twice a day when making a trip from home to work and back. Meanwhile, there are connected services of micro-mobility to offer a complete trip covering the first and last mile.
We, members of the team and associated entities are in the public transport business for over 15 years. Our long-term vision is to build an ecosystem on public transport principles and expand across all connected services.
The ecosystem built around smartly adds services to enhance traffic.
We start in Czech with a clear penetration strategy over CEE countries in 2021. The whole EU will be developed along with CEE to achieve the 2025 goal to present global coverage. It may well happen that some continents will be faster adopters as public transport disruption is going to happen in next couple of years.
We are ready to spearhead the trend and position our ecosystem as trendsetters.
We are in regular contact with many potential partners. It is a long-term process, so the conversion is seamless.
All new entrants are interested in our R&I, particularly Callisto Network’s accommodation in their day-to-day business. It is still a work in progress. Nevertheless, we know where we are heading and why. We explored the feasibility of the project a year ago. Since, we have been in discussion with partners, clients, academics, and scientists to find a way to implement a blockchain in public transport and related services. There were many feedback, so it gave us certainty, we are on a good track and the EU budget and priorities strongly support our integrated project.
