Travala.com has always used cryptocurrency as a payment methods for the purchases. The platform accepts over 40 cryptocurrencies as payment from its users. In the early May, Dogecoin was also added as payment method.
Travala also has its own native Binance Chain-based AVA token that can be used for payments, givebacks, loyalty rewards, activating discounts, a store of value and several other use cases with a circulating supply of 51,140,587 tokens and a maximum supply of 61,011,389 AVA.
Last month, the company created a poll asking the community which cryptocurrencies to add next to their payment options. When voting ended yesterday, the Shiba Inu received 3.4 million votes in the poll , nearly double that Floki – its closest competitor.
This is another example of how the SHIB community continues to support the meme token and push for wider adoption in the industry.
In July, Travala launched Dtravel, a decentralized platform for members of the home sharing economy that facilitates short-term accommodation discovery, bookings and payments. Its ownership is managed with the help of the decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) model.
