Travala, a platform that allows you to book hotels and more using crypto payments, has released the May report that shows how 597 rooms have been booked and have grown by 39% in just one month, thanks to the cryptocurrencies.
In the last period, in fact, Travala would have seen a steady increase in the number of rooms booked: from March to May almost doubled reservations and the average cost has risen from $126 to $160, probably because of the increase in the value of cryptocurrencies, users can now afford to spend more.
Moreover, with the SMART program, by staking the AVA tokens you are entitled to discounts up to 5% in addition to the other loyalty discounts of 5%, then for a total discount of 10% until you have the tokens staked. Thanks to this program, 1,038,500 AVA have been blocked, which represents 2.64% of the circulating supply.
On the Travala platform, it is currently possible to use 9 different cryptocurrencies, in addition to payment by fiat: Travala (AVA), Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), XRP, NANO, TRX and DAI.
Recently, in fact, has been added support for Bitcoin Cash. In Malta, during an interview by Cryptonomist with Roger Ver, the CEO of Bitcoin.com explained:
“There is still more infrastructure that needs to be built but it’s closer and closer every year for the mass adoption. When people say mass adoption, to me means mass adoption in payments, people using cryptocurrencies as cash to buy and sell things around the world and Bitcoin.com is trying to build the infrastructure to enable that. We’ve just come back from Slovenia where all sorts of places are accepting Bitcoin Cash. I checked out in a hotel and […] I paid with my Bitcoin.com wallet. This is pretty close to have mass adoption”.
