In August 4th, China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC) released the fortieth "Chinese Internet development statistics report" in beijing. The report shows that as of June 2017, has reached 106 million users sharing a bicycle.
This user scale is certainly not small, but the bicycle industry sharing game player situation is different.
Just over a year's time, appeared in dozens of single platform, game player is too much, the increasingly fierce market competition, some of the strength of small, lack of funds, lack of finance platform, destined to exit the market.
Since June, 3Vbike have a bicycle, Wukong outage, are "stolen bike light reason". More and more people to share the bicycle as a "national quality mirror", but this mirror may also reflect something else.
According to media reports, recently there is a bike sharing "empty". Embarrassing is that this situation is different with before the bicycle is still a large number of users, the company lost contact, the deposit is gone.
Cho Cho from Nanjing iron cycling Worship Network Science and technology limited company operation, landing Nanjing market at the end of 2016, is one of the earliest bicycle brand share in the streets of Nanjing. The bicycle body is green, the deposit for 199 yuan per vehicle.
The company's official website, CHO Cho founder bicycle called Ding Wei, a sports car, SCC ultra running club members. Ding Wei said that he incorporates design elements run in cycling shape, make it more smooth and more portable.
In early March, the netizen in succession by the Yangtze Evening News WeChat public reflect Cho Cho has not received a refund deposit bicycle problem. In July, entitled "Nanjing native" Cho Cho bike "deposit is back, the company registered capital of 10 million, the shareholders paid is zero" the report also reflects the Nanjing bike sharing "Cho Cho bicycle" deposit problem.
In July 10th, the reporter came to the CHO Cho bicycle company, the company has an office staff. The reporter then recorded video, the staff said that Cho Cho cycling is a local enterprise, not "run away" and "nowhere to run". But the reporter again went to the company, the company has found "empty".
At the same time, the bicycle Cho CHO WeChat account and micro-blog, there is still a large number of users reflect their ranging from more than 100 to more than a few hundred yuan deposit plus the amount of recharge, not yet returned.
Thanks to iron company responsible person in an interview when he said that bicycle system error, coupled with the company shortage, resulting in a refund is slow, but the refund has been in progress.
August 9th, confirmed that the relevant market supervision department, they have not contact Cho Cho bike staff had to stop the mediation. Jiangsu province Consumers Association responsible person also said that in view of the current enterprise "lost", advised consumers to take legal means to safeguard their own interests.
Bicycle is still lost a large number of users, the company did not return the deposit. For this emerging industry to share the bicycle, in such a dilemma, or perhaps the first country.
About the problem of a single shared deposit, has been questioned. Had also repeatedly exposed to the deposit back, can not refund the balance problem.
In May, the Ministry of transportation also specially issued guidance on the requirements of enterprises to implement the "bicycle sharing the rent or mortgage, which is also that back model of user deposit, and encourage enterprises to provide services free bike sharing deposit.
However, as of now, only ofo, blue bicycle, etc. cool bike less than ten bike sharing enterprises, through the provisions of the city in the implementation of sesame credit deposit free welfare. The other is the need to pay 100 to 299 of the deposit.
The two leaders, v-mobile industry big brother ofo said publicly that the deposit has been handed over to third party financial institutions safe custody and supervision, to ensure that the fund accounts, 100% to ensure that the user security deposit.
But if not, don't want to exempt deposit.
But this is no ground for blame to know in June, v-mobile announced more than 100 million registered users, each pay 299 deposit means the v-mobile owns 29 billion 900 million of the deposit pool!
With such a huge sum of money, if not used, also virtually give yourself a lot of confidence and additional interest.
