Tourism popularizes crypto
The travel sector has been quite receptive to the cryptocurrency space. In September 2019, Norway’s Norwegian Air launched its own crypto exchange, the Norwegian Block Exchange [NBX].
Recently, Travala has been on a partnership spree. In November 2019 alone, it partnered with Booking.com and Cardano. Binance also recently partnered with TravelByBit. Travala is facilitating crypto adoption and creating more use cases for the digital asset sphere.
