With the growing popularity of Blockchain technology and crypto assets, mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies has been growing substantially, more so in the last few months. Many altcoin projects experienced massive growth in user adoption throughout last year. Several global businesses have now started to adopt the most popular digital asset on the market. Recently, A unique hotel-booking platform based on the blockchain of Ethereum, Trippki, announced that the Trippki Hotel Beta would accept payment in DOGECOIN (Doge) for rooms and stays.
On 2nd May, this news was shared by crypto enthusiasts on Twitter’s Platform, following this news the Dogecoin Community as well as the entire crypto community was excited. Along with Fiat and Dogecoin, Trippki will also accept payments in seven other cryptocurrencies including Ethereum Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ripple’s XRP, Monero (XMR), Decred (DCR), as well as Lightning Bitcoin (LBTC).
Trippki has as many as 1.6 million hotels integrated on its platform and will allow its users to book hotels utilizing their cryptocurrencies.
Trippki’s business model is designed in such a way that it benefits the parties involved in the transaction – the hotel and the guest. Since it eliminates the current OTA system directly, the customer and the hotel benefit from full control. This translates into a significant reduction in the cost of channels for hotels while offering customers significantly better offers, based on the reputation they gain on this unique platform. In addition, guests also have the opportunity to receive rewards if they write a comment about the hotel and share it on social networks.
By adding Dogecoin as a crypto payment option, Trippki is targeting the vast community of dogecoin and also expanding its appeal and international reach.
Such a step would contribute to greater adoption of these digital assets around the world and especially in the travel industry. It remains to be seen which cryptocurrency will be added next by Trippki on your platform as a payment option!
