Crypto travel booking platform Travala.com has announced a partnership with open-source blockchain platform ARK.
The partnership will facilitate the integration of Travala.com to ARK’s proposed MarketSquare project. This agreement results in allowing travel bookings to be made using the ARK native token.

These additions provide users with a wide range of payment options on the platform. The recently integrated ARK token will facilitate easy payments, staking, and custom-made transactions.
