AVA is a multi-chain token based on the Binance Chain (BEP-2), Binance Smart Chain (BEP-20) and Ethereum blockchain (ERC-20). Founded in 2017 as a travel utility token, AVA enables travellers from around the globe to book various travel products and provides several incentives that encourage the use of the Travala.com platform, including discounts and loyalty rewards.
The mission of the AVA token is to bring to the travel industry as a whole transparent pricing, innovation, authentic truth, enhanced security, and efficient stakeholder interaction.
These principles lend themselves to the team’s vision of aligning travel bookings with the ethos of decentralised technology by: promoting accessibility to anyone, anywhere; offering censorship resistant and peer-to-peer transactions; and building open-source technology controlled by software and governed by users.
AVA can be used to book over 3,000,000 travel products on Travala.com, including hotels, homes, flights, and activities. With accommodation in over 230 countries and territories, 600+ airlines, and more than 400,000 activities, Travala.com’s selection provides travellers with extensive choice when booking with AVA.
