Dear MEL Topic Readers,
China officially begins issuing digital driver’s licenses
Clearly, there is a clear difference between the two giants, the USA and China. While Apple is working with each state to add driver’s licenses and state IDs to your wallet, which already includes boarding passes, venue tickets, subway tickets, credit cards, and student IDs, China does it from the top at once. Yes, digital driver’s licenses were officially issued to nearly three million drivers in 28 major cities early this month, including Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou. Unlike an image version of the license on iPhone, China’s digital license is designed for mobile use, featuring a QR code and a bar code. Along with other traffic management measures, drivers can pay parking fees and even traffic penalties via their mobile phones. Also, they can claim and view evidence of traffic accidents online, which makes it quicker and easier to report traffic accident reports and claim insurance. The next move which was also initiated by the government is a digital currency. It has been tested and is soon to be issued and used before the Winter Olympic Games.
It seems that China’s advanced and advancing mobile technologies and applications are way ahead of any other country in the world.
Enjoy reading the article and seeing the image of the digital driver’s license.
