Hong Kong-based cryptocurrency platform Crypto.com announced on Thursday it is teaming up with hotel booking platform Travala. Through the partnership, Travala will now accept CRO, the Crypto.com Coin, along with BTC, LTC, ETH and XRP through Crypto.com Pay.
“Over 1 million users of the Crypto.com App can now pay for bookings at over 2 million hotels and accommodations in 230 countries globally on Travala using the Crypto.com Pay feature in the app. From now until 30 June 2020, travellers can get up to 10% back in Pay Rewards for bookings paid in CRO.”
Speaking about the collaboration, Kris Marszalek, Co-Founder and CEO of Crypto.com, stated:
“At Crypto.com, we are continuously building an ecosystem to foster mass adoption of cryptocurrency. Travala.com is a well-recognized brand in the crypto community and we are pleased to welcome them aboard to our expanding merchant network for Crypto.com Pay Checkout.”
Steve Hipwell, Co-Founder and COO of Travala, further commented:
“We’re excited to partner with Crypto.com to further drive cryptocurrency adoption to the masses and make paying with cryptocurrency a norm and look forward to the Crypto.com users joining our crypto travel movement and supporting crypto adoption by booking.”
