By Yu-Yi Chen
The business model of Uber is being continuously duplicated by start-ups around the world. DiDi dominated the Chinese market, with a valuation once reached $15 billion.

DiDi provides car services on mobile phones in conjuncture with GPS technology. Drivers throughout all the cities in China are given incentives whenever they accept requests.

For example, a bonus of CNY 10 is given for the first 10 orders each day.
