    The $5M pre-sale starts late September.

    DOFTCOIN Is coming soon!

    So why did we decide to launch our own cryptocurrency?

    The answer is easy – the future of transportation belongs to it.

    The DOFTCOIN is going to become a gold standard for transportation oriented transactions because:

    · All transactions almost immediate! Usually it takes at least 1 bank day to receive payment. DOFTCOIN will be able to provide almost immediate transactions.

    · It is scalable! No matter whether you are in the USA or in Mexico or even in Australia – the cost of shipment based on DOFTCOINS will not depend on your state’s currency value.

    · The transactions are anonymous.


    At pre-sale round we deliver 10% of DOFTCOINS and we are going to raise $5M in either BTC, ETH or LTC.

    As for me the idea looks interesting - the crypcocurrency is backed by the real working business. Even if not to be part of it - at least it is a chance to gain some cash. I have invested in ethereum when they started, so it is just an opportunity.

    Bitcoin looks like a pyramid because there is nothing backing it. Doft is an established IT and Trucking startup. It is working on the $800 billion market. So For me there is much more trust in the cryptocurrency backed by the real business.

    Trucking industry needs some changes.

    • The efficiency of the load booking is really low now.
    • The high volumes of freight keep the rates low.
    • The truckers have to move empty about 30% of their time.


    So that is why the Doft team has started this project.

    Doft app can help the truckers to reduce the dead head mileage.

    Doft dispatcher tool can help the dispatcher to manage his network of drivers more efficiently.

    Doft loadboard can help shippers and 3PLs to deliver the information about his freight to the driver directly.
    And sure Doft will break the barriers with the crypto currency it is launching now.

    So join Doft ICO and Bounty program!

    Uberization of trucking is a very hot theme today.

    A lot of companies are trying to adopt the uber on demand model to the transportation industry in the USA.
    Now it is plain to see, that the direct on demand model doesn't work for transportation.
    So some companies like Cargomatic or Uber Freight try to create a Freight brokerage. Highly automated, but still freight brokerage. And there is no difference between them and i.e. CH Robinson.


    Doft on it's side offers a complex transportation solution, which will perform all the major tasks the shipper and carrier require.

    1 Doft matches the trucker with the available freight in his area

    2 Doft does the complete motor carrier checkup and provides the data to the shipper

    3 Doft algorithm can help the driver to get the backhaul.

    4 With doftcoin the truckers can participate in mining, so they earn doftcoins and are able to pay for the services and goods in Doft store. Shippers paying with doftcoins can save on the commissions and on Doft discount programs.


    By the way the Bounty campaign is still on, so join it! https://doft.com/blog/doft-ico-bounty-campaign

    I don't see this ever working. Truckers are the least technological people in the world. The majority of truckers are not owner operators or running their own authority. Brokers and shippers don't care if the truck comes from 1000 miles away. They just want the lowest price. I don't trust any foreigners and especially eastern Europeans that are running this.

    Another reason it is stupid is every trucker has a cell phone. There are MANY apps for finding loads. I'm guessing this is just a ploy to gather free ethereum coins from any suckers willing to hand them over. They have some serious value.

    Everybody knows, that the US trucking industry needs some changes to be made.
    The industry is growing dynamically, but the operations are still done in an old-school manner.
    Nothing wrong with it, except the time and the efforts spent to organize the freight moving.
    Sure, when Uber has launched its cab service there were a lot of hopes, that this model, adopted to the trucking will blow up the industry. So, a huge lot of startups rushed into this niche. But what do we see?
    The 1st effort to create an Uber for trucking was Cargomatic. They tried hard, but they have failed to disrupt the industry. And the situation stays uncertain until now.
    Now there are at least a dozen startups, that are trying to create an uber for trucking, but no one has succeeded. Why is it so? The answer is plain to see – the uber cab model doesn’t work for the trucks. At all.
    When we think about the new way of working, we imagine the free to use, simple, user-friendly solution suitable for every type of business involved into the logistics chain. And certainly, the solution should make the business processes much easier and quicker, still without breaking the habits of people, who do this job every day.
    The startups, calling themselves the uber for trucks are reinventing the way, US trucking is operating now.
    Sure it doesn’t suit brokers, who hold 90% of the whole transportation market. Other companies are trying to create a highly automated freight brokerage. It’s just like packing an old-school stuff into a hi-tech cover. But it is still a brokerage, that cuts commissions, and the drivers do not like it, mainly because they do not like brokers at all, and secondly because not all of them are not really confident with all these smartphones and IT stuff.
    Some of companies are trying to look at the problem from the truck driver side. So, they develop the apps for the truckers, which appear to be nothing, but an old-school load board redesigned for a mobile.
    As we see there is no complex solution suitable the Shippers/Brokers and Carriers equally.
    Except DOFT.
    The model used by Doft is equally good for every type of business. The business processes are not reinvented or altered. They are just much easier to perform.
    What Doft does even cannot be called the Brokerage. The service is free to all the parties, so it helps saving money.
    And surely, Doft does not reinvent the way, the US trucking industry should operate. Doft solves some key problems of trucking.
    1 We all know that the truckers usually move empty about 30% of their time. Or loose time waiting for a next load. Doft helps to reduce the dead head mileage mainly with the Doft prediction algorithm. It will provide the driver information about the available freight at the the destination point right while booking the direct freight.
    2 The problem with payments also exists. Now the common practice is to pay the motor carrier 14 to 60 days after the load is moved. It may be OK for some big fleets, but it is certainly not as good for owner operators, who count every dollar. So Doft is also working on this problem. And the main remedy can be an introduction of the crypto currency. So, the shippers who pay in doftcoins will get a discount. The drivers will get an opportunity to mine doftcoins and to pay for the goods and services in the doft store. So even moving empty will do some profit.

    Uber hasn't figured out how to move a 2000# skid in a compact car yet.

    You leave out a lot of key explanations. You say that DOFT is the ideal platform but you don't explain how it actually works. When a trucker becomes empty and searches for another load they usually take the first good paying load available that is near their empty out location. Even if there are load planners that plan pickups and deliveries it doesn't ensure that the shipper will want the truck that is preplanned for a load. Sometimes it literally takes all day to unload due to unforeseen problems. The driver or truck owner has no influence on shippers to get his truck unloaded faster many times. With certain types of freight there is absolutely no way to preplan loads. Your system can't do anything to help truckers on this problem.

    The only solution you may bring to the table is to speed up payments. Your system supposedly takes 5% from each side for this service. 5% from the shipper and 5% from the trucker. Isn't this the same damn thing as factoring? Factoring already exists and people are quite aware of how that works. You also don't mention if there is some type of escrow service. It would be great to know you got paid as a trucker right after leaving the pickup and that when your load was delivered in good condition that the shipper received good service from the trucking company.
