Meet the world's first steem powered taxi!


I want to introduce everyone to my friends, Dulce and Jonathan.
They are a husband and wife team here in Tijuana and together they operate a local Taxi company called Candy Taxi (Dulce is Spanish for Candy). They are fully licensed, bonded, insured and authorized by the local government to operate as a legitimate taxi service.

They have a "Taxi Libre" franchise meaning they can drive anywhere, which is important because there are also taxis that are only allowed on certain roads or in certain areas, called Taxis Rojos. Their family owns 6 Taxi Libre cars which provides them with full 24/7 coverage, someone in that family is always on the road.

In the time since I've known them, they have always made sure I can get to and from my destinations quickly and safely.
I have never been late to anything since meeting these guys, so as a thank you gift, I decided to introduce them to steemit and all my friends here!

@candytaxi is now the first Taxi company in Mexico and probably the world to accept steem! I've just helped them sign up for steemit tonight and they are working on an introductory blog post for the morning. But Dulce has a special message for everyone while we await their introduceyourself posting.

Wow, good idea and I hope there will come more entrepreneurs who accept steem for the payment in all branches - thx and STEEM ON ;-)

·

That's my goal with all of this yes!

·
·

Good luck and much success - spread the word ;-)

Wow! This is awesome! If I am ever traveling south of the border I will give @candytaxi service a try! I would advise them to accept altcoins and bitcoin too!

·

Yeah we got them setup with a bitcoin wallet too. Dulce and Jonathon say they hope to see you soon. If you ever need a ride just go to their blog and let them know!

Wonderful! This is how we are going to help people all over the world

·

I completely agree. Latin America is probably the best place in the world to do crypto and steemit has the most potential to change lives in a country like this.

They are about to have some steem power in that Gas tank! Yeah! Go steem!

·

Agreed 1000%! My next goal is to get a hotel to accept steem directly and then launch a springsteem event. Over spring break next year.

·

Thank you! I'm always happy when people like my posts!

Awesome! It seems the whole world is catching on

·

If I do my job right, it will be harder to find a business that doesn't take steem than to find one that does.

·
·

how did you convince them to start accepting steem as a form of payment? i would only assume they were quite skeptical at first

y tambien quiero decir que esto es perfecto para cualquier persona que quiera ir de vacaciones en Tijuana. Si alguno vez visito allí, voy a buscar para la crazytaxi

sorry for my bad spanish haha

I asked them to pick up a customer for the Bitcoin ATM at Imaxess. Paid them in bitcoin, then sat down and explained steemit and steem. They were very open minded about it. Mexico is extremely progressive in the cryptocurrency space.

Gracias a todos por sus votos y los esperamos en México

Following you now! I plan to use your services next time I'm in Tijuana. Welcome to steemit!

That is really super cool @williambanks. Keep it up and we're gonna have to get you a cape! ;)
Welcome to Steemit @candytaxi

·

Lol @merej99 you always know how to make me feel good about myself for sure!

Awesomesauce!!!! :) How do I call the Taxi, whats the number?

This is a wonderful idea!
Si voy a Tijuana algún día sin duda les llamaré :)
¡Gracias @williambanks! @candytaxi: ¡Bienvenidos!

·

Thank you very much and I hope to see everyone in TJ soon!

Do you mean, paying the taxi bill could be simply done by transferring SBD on @candytaxi account? :)

You are really doing great in spreading the use of STEEM. ^^

·

Yes that's exactly how this works. Pretty cool huh?

·
·

Yes! Pretty cool indeed!

¡Buena suerte en su empresa!

We are moving forward!

·

I totally agree! Pretty soon businesses around the globe will be taking steem.
