Vite App, available on android and iOS is a mobile phone application that facilitates peer to peer ridesharing by connecting passengers who need a ride with drivers who have a car at the tap of the button.

The answer is yes. Big telecommunication networks such as MTN and Vodafone introduced mobile money e-wallets to African nations – people use them to store cash, pay their bills and transfer money to their friends and families. According to a report by Bank of Ghana, more than $500 million transactions were made through mobile money platforms in Ghana alone.But here is the point: All Vitecoin transactions are entirely digital, meaning that riders can purchase and use Vitecoin at the tap of a button within the app, without fear of internal network failure that is common occurrence with mobile money platforms.
There are more than 150 emerging market cities across Africa, Europe and Asia with a population of a million or more without a ridesharing service.Combined with a widespread smartphone adoption, Africa’s urban transport market alone stands at $4 billion annually and growing.
Vite will be operational in 35 cities globally with more than 250,000 empowered partner drivers, 10 million active riders and annual revenue of $100 million.
