  Text by Zi Mo

  Early this year, Chinese cab driversand riders received a specialNew Year gift: On January 10,Didi Taxi, a taxi hailing app,announced it would reward passengers10 yuan for paying cab fare with WeChatPayment up to three times daily, and givecabdrivers the same amount, up to fivetimes a day, in 32 Chinese cities.
