When it comes to planning a nice vacation, or business trip, many people go to sites like Booking.com, Expedia.com or kayak.com. After all, those are the leading companies that offer different travel rates and have many different packages. Travala is the latest travel marketplace that has currently utilized the NEO blockchain technology.
With over 550,000 properties listed in 210 countries, Travala is often referred to as the AirBnB of the blockchain, having been the first among its peers to embrace the emerging crypto-economy. Travala was formerly known as Concierge.io.
Besides being able to pay on the website with XRP, other cryptocurrencies are also supported. Currently, the travel website accepts Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), Dash (DASH), XRP (XRP), EOS (EOS), Binance Coin (BNB), Stellar Lumens (XLM), True USD (TUSD), and its own native coin AVA.
The platform’s native coin (AVA), which grants access to price reductions in its services, currently trades at $0.12 – 65% down on its ICO main sale issue price of $0.35 in April this year.
