LONDON — January 8, 2020 — Huobi Group, the world’s leading blockchain brand with an expansive portfolio of decentralized products and services, today announced a new partnership with crypto-friendly hotel booking platform Travala.com. To give travelers and crypto users more flexible booking options, Travala.com has integrated Huobi Token (HT) as a preferred payment method for booking hotels and accommodations in over 90,000 destinations across 230+ countries.
HT holders can use Travala.com to access more than 2 million hotels globally thanks to a recent strategic partnership between Travala.com and travel booking platform Booking.com. Adduitionally., the Huobi Global community can unlock exclusive rates discounted by up to 40% when booking on Travala.com, helping to drive the increasingly prolific trend of crypto tourism as part of the newly inked partnership.
By integrating HT with Travala.com, Huobi aims to expand use cases for its native token, increase the token’s utility, and further drive blockchain adoption for mainstream consumers. Ciara Sun, Chief of Staff at Huobi, welcomed the partnership by stating, “Huobi Token holders are a cornerstone of the Huobi Ecosystem and will now have an opportunity to use it to book accommodations virtually anywhere in the world. Travel planning is another example of Huobi Token’s expanding reach outside of our immediate blockchain ecosystem to make it more accessible to the general public.”
Travala.com is an important use case for the adoption of the Huobi Token ecosystem, namely being the latest preferred payment system on a leading blockchain-based travel booking platform. In welcoming the Huobi community, Matt Luczynski, CEO of Travala.com said, “Huobi Token will join other major digital assets as a preferred payment option on our platform. We look forward to an increase in Huobi Token holders joining our crypto travel booking community.”
Huobi has made developing HT a priority over the past year. For example, Huobi Prime and Huobi FastTrack, Huobi’s innovative premium coin launch platform and its new coin listing program, which launched in March and June this year, respectively—both use HT as their main token of exchange. In July, Huobi implemented a series of tiered trading fee discounts for users based on HT holdings, and In August, Huobi Token inked its first ecommerce partnership with FomoHunt.
