The new June report on the progress of the Travala project has just been released, bringing double-digit increases in crypto payments compared to May.

As we can read in the report, the total number of rooms booked on Travala increased by 17.4% compared to May, with an average of $147 per room; moreover, 22% of the bookings made in June were made with the token of their platform, AVA, even exceeding the payments in bitcoin (BTC), which stands at 20%, whereas the least used is TRON (TRX).

SMART members, who have additional discounts, also increased by 18.5% reaching almost 300 users (of which 216 at level 5) and since May, 3.12% of the supply was frozen, equivalent to 1,226,000 AVA.

Thanks to this growth, the Travala team has expanded its staff to 24 and Nicholas Merten, founder of DataDash (the largest YouTube channel dedicated to the crypto world with over 315,000 subscribers), has become a brand ambassador.

In addition, Travala has updated with a new guest check-out option so that there is no need to log in each time with a Travala account. Among the latest crypto added as a payment method, there is now Dash.

A new version of the platform has just been released, which includes:

  • Integration of Travolutionary APIs (specific APIs for the travel world) that are pending for certification by Gimmonix;
  • 15 new supplier properties with 1,441,154 properties in 114,603 destinations worldwide. All contracts exceed one million dollars, also thanks to the previous API that allows certifying the suppliers;
  • Integration of credit card payments with the services and APIs provided by Zoopay/Bluesnap;
  • New refund methods;
  • Certifications and security audits.
