FAQ

What are you selling?

Drone Employee is a software that allows business owners to “hire” flying robots – Drones!

What does “HIRING” a drone mean?

We believe that drones should stop being a tool that people operate. Instead, they should become independent and generate value for their owner autonomously.

This means 2 things:

  • The drone flies without a human pilot.We developed fleet management software powered by blockchain technology that guarantees that your drones will always fly safely
  • The drone has economic autonomy and can accept payments or create contracts with partners directly. It can organize the complex supply chain of a drone service within a single smart contract which removes the pain for the business owner.
