Travala is a decentralized travel marketplace built on the NEO blockchain. Travala allows access to use the platform via the NEP-5 token AVA.
The travala platform interacts with the NEO blockchain at each stage of the booking process, from initial payment to verification of checkout, thus, payment to the supplier.
Travala was initially launched Concierge with the original token ticker CGE in 2017. The Co-founders Matt Luczynski and Steve Hipwell decided after the deployment of CGE that Concierge wasn't the desired name for the platform, the project was rebranded to Travala in early 2018. The AVA token was then distributed at a 1:1 ratio to all CGE token holders issued upon the NEO blockchain.
The initial focus for Travala has been around it's usability, using the NEO blockchain for the booking process incorporating smart contract deployment for each booking.
