The industry of digital currency is consistently getting broader acceptance and adoption across the world. The number of companies beginning to embrace crypto payments seems to be increasing day by day. One such update has been announced by Trippki which has now facilitated Dogecoin payments for its hotel booking platform.
The news was shared with the global crypto enthusiasts via the micro-blogging site Twitter on 2nd May 2019. The announcement has left the Dogecoin fans as well as the entire crypto community thoroughly excited.
Trippki Beta is a unique hotel booking platform based on the blockchain of Ethereum. It enables its users to book hotels utilizing their cryptocurrencies in addition to the fiat ones. So far, the company has as many as 1.6 million hotels integrated on its platform and accepts payments in 8 types of digital currencies.
Prior to Dogecoin DOGE, Trippki has included crypto payment options for Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ripple’s XRP, Monero (XMR), Decred (DCR), as well as Lightning Bitcoin (LBTC).
Trippki, with its innovative concept, aims at building and enhancing the valued relationship between the hotels and the guests. When the users start utilizing the platform of Trippki for booking their stay, they receive rewards in the form of TRIP tokens which can be considered as loyalty rewards. Users can then spend these TRIP tokens within the ecosystem of the hotel they’re staying in or any other participating organization easily. In fact, these TRIP tokens can even be traded by users on a variety of digital currency exchanges.
The business model of Trippki is designed in such a way that it benefits the actual parties involved in the transaction – hotel and the guest. As it directly eliminates the present OTA system, the entire control is enjoyed by the concerned customer and the hotel. That translates into a considerably reduced channel cost for hotels while providing customers with significantly better deals based on the reputation they earn on this unique platform. Additionally, guests also stand a chance to receive rewards if they write a review about the hotel and share on the social media networks.
With Dogecoin as another crypto payment option, Trippki has definitely expanded its appeal and international reach. The step would contribute to increased adoption of such digital assets worldwide and especially in the travel industry. It remains to be seen now which crypto is added next by Trippki on its platform as a payment option!
