MapMetrics is a community of drivers that share their location while driving and get paid for creating real-time traffic reports. It uses a geotracking device called a "Special Position Tracker" which costs €150. Users can put it in their car, motorcycle, or bike and monetize their driving data by earning tokens and NFTs.
In the Web 2.0 era, companies like Google Maps keep all the profit from your data. Now, crypto-enabled companies like MapMetrics and Hivemapper aim to share the rewards with contributors.
