ARK Announces Partnership with Travala.com

As we approach the launch of MarketSquare , we want to give our community an inside look at some of the partnerships we have formed. These strategic partnerships will not only help make MarketSquare the new homepage for the decentralized web but will also create inroads between ARK and other projects looking to build together. Today we would like to introduce you to Travala.com.

Background on Travala.com

Founded in 2017, Travala.com is the leading cryptocurrency-friendly travel booking service with 2,200,000+ hotels and homes in 230 countries and 600 airlines globally. Backed by industry-giant Binance, Travala.com is a champion of cryptocurrency adoption, accepting over 30 leading cryptocurrencies in addition to traditional payment methods.

As the native cryptocurrency of Travala.com, AVA is a Binance Chain-based token that can be used for payments, givebacks, loyalty rewards, activating discounts, a store of value and several other use cases.

Their team is comprised of individuals from the travel, FinTech and blockchain industry. Travala.com’s vision is to align travel booking with the ethos of decentralized technology, promote accessibility, offer censorship-resistant and peer-to-peer transactions, and build open-source technology for the travel industry.

ARK and Travala.com Partnership

At ARK one of our top priorities has always been to simplify blockchain technology and give our users the tools necessary to leverage it. This partnership will see ARK added to Travala.com’s booking service in the near future. We will let you know when ARK goes live on Travala.com. By adding ARK to Travala.com’s expanding userbase we are increasing exposure and providing a useful service for our community. Moreover, this partnership will further both company’s goals of widespread adoption.

Regarding the partnership, CEO of Travala.com, Juan Otero said:

We’re excited to partner with ARK to champion the growth of the crypto community and can’t wait to see Travala.com featured on ARK’s Upcoming MarketSquare

On MarketSquare, Travala.com will be listed as a partner and business within the MarketSquare platform. This will make Travala.com discoverable to the entire MarketSquare community which includes community members from a wide array of blockchain projects, applications and businesses. Additionally, we will be exploring ways to highlight Travala.com as a leading crypto-friendly travel provider.
