The first online travel booking platform offering payment by cryptocurrency, Travala has once again strengthened its position in the sector. She indeed concluded a partnership with EMURGO, global provider of blockchain solutions and founding entity of the Cardano protocol (ADA). This partnership should allow all travelers to easily book stays in hotels during their various trips around the world. For EMURGO, this is a way to promote ADA to an audience already familiar with the use of cryptocurrencies.
Encourage the adoption of Cardano (ADA)
This is obviously one of the important missions ofEMURGO who finds in Travala the ideal channel for this promotion. Indeed, the platform currently offers more than 2,000,000 properties to book in 90,000 destinations in 230 countries and territories thanks to its previous partnership with Booking.com.
Travelers can in particular use almost 30 cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin and benefit from a competitive rate which is up to 40% cheaper compared to the competition. The ADA now includes the list of supported cryptocurrencies, and will allow anyone who uses it to receive a 10% discount until July 31, 2020.
Ken Kodama – CEO of EMURGO – has recognized that this partnership will provide quality exposure to the assets. He thus declares: “As international travel begins to gradually resume, EMURGO is happy to be associated with Travala.com for provide functional utility to ADA users. The ability to book flights, hotels and other travel accommodations with ADA at more than 2 million properties in 90,000 international destinations demonstrates the willingness toEMURGO of foster adoption of Cardano in the real world “
Become the largest booking platform via Bitcoin and cryptocurrency
This is at least what emerges when one is interested in the various partnerships that have recently been concluded by the platform Travala. It had indeed already merged last May with TravelByBit which also offered a flight reservation service that accepts cryptocurrencies. Moreover, 60% of all reservations made on Travala.com in the last twelve months have been paid in cryptocurrencies based on recent data provided by the platform.
Juan Otero – Travala.com CEO – commenting on the new partnership also addressed this desire to offer more visibility to cryptocurrencies in their services. “We are very excited to partner with an industry giant to drive adoption of ADA. Travel is the place for massive adoption of cryptocurrencies and, as we all start traveling again, Travala.com will continue to provide a frictionless travel booking experience to everyone, no matter where. “, did he declare.
The present partnership, which will allow ADA to gain visibility, could also be followed by an increase in the value of the assets, as is often the case in this type of deal. For its part, Travala sees the list of its potential customers grow with ADA holders, an important thing in this period when tourism is suffering the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic.
