TravelbyBit gives away bitcoin (BTC)

TravelbyBit gives away Bitcoin: the company itself announces it in a tweet in celebration of bitcoin’s birthday today, January 3rd. To do so, it will give 300,000 satoshis (0.003 BTC) equivalent to about $30 to those who book a flight with Virgin Airlines.

TravelbyBit, the Australian booking company, is Travala‘s competitor in the field of flight and hotel reservations paid via crypto. Moreover, its relationship with Binance is very close, given their direct investment in the company.

The choice of Virgin Airlines was not random, as it was founded by Richard Branson, a supporter of blockchain and bitcoin; in the past, Branson even hosted a blockchain-themed event at his resort in Morocco, with the participation of several government officials as well as people related to the world of blockchain and bitcoin.

“I do think there will be a global currency which will take on Jamie Dimon and the other banks and currencies, that will be the future,” said Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Group.

This represents a good opportunity for Virgin as it is not possible to use cryptocurrencies as a payment method on their platform. 

The same goes for the TravelbyBit platform which, with this campaign, valid until January 15th, will be able to attract many users.

In any case, it should be taken into account that this marketing move could also have been driven by the desire to sugarcoat the pill following the problem that occurred on the TravelbyBit app in Australia, which led to double spending operations and resulted in BTC and BCH payments being disabled.
