Crypto-oriented travel startup claims that its users are now able to book accommodation in a hotel with NANO. As of now, the startup is already-operational with 567,928 properties around the world.

NANO joins a bevy of accepted coins

The online booking platform already added XRP to the list of its payment options back in December. Before that, Travala started accepting Bitcoin, Dash, TrueUSD, and a slew of other altcoins. Notably, the startup also has its own native token called Travala (AVA), which can be also used for paying for accommodation at any of the available properties.


A major disruptor in the travel industry, which is powered by the NEO Blockchain, is commonly known as the Airbnb of crypto. They successfully conducted their ICO back in April, raking in $2.6 mln. The startup solves the fake reviews problem by recording them on an immutable ledger.  

Back in December, they revealed that they would be adding 400,000 new properties to their platform, which was the result of their strategic partnerships.
