Popular blockchain travel booking platform Travala.com has just announced a partnership with Bitcoin.com as a result of which its services will be integrated into the official Bitcoin.com wallet recently surpassed four million downloads.
Travala.com announced the partnership on May 15, 2019 and will offer 15% cheaper travel bookings for their users. The platform grants the opportunity for every customer to pay with a number of cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash.
CEO of Travala.com, Matthew Luczyski commented on the move:
“A reflection of our unwavering commitment towards cryptocurrency adoption, we’re excited to partner with an industry titan to champion the growth of the crypto community. With over 80% of the bookings on our platform made chiefly in digital currencies, the partnership will allow us to leverage Bitcoin Cash’s global network for greater real-world usability. We are excited to work closer with Roger and the Bitcoin.com team.”
Travala.com’s service portfolio includes more than 82,000 destinations in over 210 countries worldwide. Holders of Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash will be now able to book amongst 567,928 real estate listings while taking advantage of significant discounts. This will all happen via their Bitcoin.com wallets.
Bitcoin.com’s side of the Story
Bitcoin.com is one of the leaders in web traffic in the cryptocurrency space. Focused on Bitcoin cash adoption they are offering a number of services that open the doors to the digital economy to many enthusiasts – including mobile wallets, mining services, blockchain-based notary services and most recently – a Local Bitcoins spin-off that doesn’t require KYC verification. In addition, their developer tools suite has been downloaded more than 36,000 times across 100 countries.
With a mobile wallet with a significantly larger user base than Travala’s estimated 60,000 visits per month, it has the potential to provoke substantial customer growth for the travel booking platform, while staying true to its initial purpose of advertising the use of cryptocurrencies as cash.
Roger Ver, CEO of Bitcoin.com, remarked on the mutually beneficial partnership:
“Our work is guided by a stout belief in Bitcoin Cash as a model of economic freedom and this includes the continual expansion of offerings under our current suite of products and services. By providing additional functionalities compatible with the lifestyle choices of our community, this partnership exemplifies the value of digital currencies and will build out our ecosystem with a real-world, viable use case.”
Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash users can already access Travala.com via the latest version of the Bitcoin.com wallet.
