As of 02-09-2020, Gate.io has entered into a strategic partnership with Travala.com, which means the GateToken (GT) has been integrated into the travel website’s platform. For users, this implies that besides the acceptance of more mainstream crypto assets such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Travala.com will now also accept GateToken (GT) for bookings at over 2.2 million hotels and homes in 230 countries across the world.
Founded in 2017, Travala.com is the leading cryptocurrency-friendly travel booking service with 2,000,000+ properties in 230 countries and 600 airlines globally. Backed by industry-giant Binance, Travala.com is a champion of cryptocurrency adoption, accepting over 28 leading cryptocurrencies in addition to traditional payment methods. AVA bolsters the Travala.com value proposition. As Travala’s native cryptocurrency, AVA can be used for payments, receiving loyalty rewards, discounts, and bonuses, among several other use cases.
Altogether, it will allow GateToken holders to participate in a more affordable, fairer, and more inclusive travel economy while also improving the utility of GateToken (GT), as the tokens will be used for travel bookings. GateToken holders who choose to use Travala.com will save up to 40% of travel expenses. This new exciting endeavor helps establish GT even further as a significant token in the entire eco.
A word from our CEO Lin Han:
“The Gate.io and Travala.com partnership brings us one step closer to our combined vision of mainstream cryptocurrency adoption. We are excited to join forces with Travala.com and enable millions of users to benefit from our strong tech-driven eco. GateToken (GT), an integral part of the Gate.io eco, is already being used by our 3 million users for VIP tier growth, trading fee debit, exclusive participation in activities and much more.”
To a brighter and better-traveled future! Stay tuned for more partnerships in the space!
