My answer may disappoint you but you may also get to appreciate finally what MuleChain’s business model is really all about. What you mentioned are perfectly fine but it is not for MuleChain to take up that responsibility to provide, request and train people to use them. That kind of thinking belongs to building and running a business under the existing centralized corporation concept.
MuleChain simply provides a “decentralized platform” for any big and small centralized business owners to run and compete with each other for the benefits of the consumers on our platform. Requesters and Mules can accept or reject orders based on their own liking. Some major corporations may dominate certain part of the business by using better technologies to provide superior services like what you mentioned but we are not going to exclude some individuals or small mom’n’pop shops on our platform who do not want to touch those new technologies to provide a cheaper alternative in price to compete with those bigger businesses with sexier new gigs.
So for example, if some people think there is a great potential to use drones for delivery in the future. Fine, the Amazons and the Alibabas can use their dominant wealth to develop the best drones based on the latest AI technologies to monopolize certain area of the drone delivery business with a high price tag. It would not be MuleChain’s role to aim to develop a more superior technology to compete with them. MuleChain simply provides the platform for some smart entrepreneurs or start-up companies to use MuleChain’s platform to deploy his or her own newly invented drones to beat Amazon or Alibaba in price from low overhead cost to gain a foothold in the new drone based delivery business.
I do see somebody with similar thinking like yours who believe that RF scanner and QR code can make the delivery process more efficient and effective. MuleChain will help them develop a business and brand themselves on the platform where all their Mules and Pack Station Owners wearing their branded uniforms are equipped with these useful devices and they will be successful.
The only problem is that another traditional centralized business with another more superior technologies will never be able to scale themselves to reach out to more than 90% of the world’s population, no matter how big they may grow in the future. That opportunity, to reach out to more than 90% of the world’s population and to create millions of new types of jobs as Mules and Pack Station Owners to benefit the under-privileged people in our human society, would only belong to a new type of decentralized platform like MuleChain in my humble opinion, and that is where we wanna be.
That is the decentralized business model philosophy (or religion) made possible by the NEM blockchain technology that we intend to stick to.
