I’m calling this a concept because I do not have this idea all fleshed out and am interested in feedback.
I’m thinking of a new contract type that would facilitate the movement of ore from the point of gathering, asteroids, etc… This would be mainly targeted for new player miners and haulers.
The miner would mine the ore and when his hold gets full he would put in in some kind of can. The can would have some level of risk. The miner would create a pickup contract when the can was full. A hauler would pickup the ore and deliver it to a nearby station.
In this way miners and haulers, especially newer players, could work together without knowing each other or forming a fleet.
