Why you need to care about blockchain and crypto for tourism
The crypto travel nice is full of opportunities for tourism businesses. During the webinar we’ve reviewed why this could be an attractive niche for your tourism business and the benefits that you could gain from increasing your knowledge about blockchain and crypto tourism.
Examples of Blockchain projects
- Storage – a real peer to peer alternative to Dropbox, Google Drive etc.
- WindingTree – an open source project (no IP, no equity, nothing owned by the founders, completely a community project).WindingTree is aiming to solve centralisation in travel distribution. Without open data we can’t have permisionn-less innovation. A supplier (e.g. airline, hotel) can list inventory – they have full ownership of the inventory. Any innovator can access it and sell inventory or use data to create personalisation tools. Projects in vacation space, corporate hotel booking space (20% cost saving)
