Ripple (XRP) has been added on a leading travel website, Travala.com. The travel website uses the second largest cryptocurrency as a new payment method for its platform.
Travala is commonly called the AirBnB of the blockchain because there are over half a million properties listed in its books in over 200 countries. Travala is the first of its peers to accept the growing crypto-emerging economy.

The announcement for XRP support was followed by a similar announcement later that same day when the Travala team mentioned the future intention to include DASH as another cryptocurrency payment method to be implemented on the website. Together with DASH, this would require the total number of cryptocurrency supports up to ten.
For starters, Travala was intended to be just a standard accommodation booking website, however, at the start of the year, the site passed under a blockchain rhino that was renamed by Concierge and then collected over $ 2.5 million in an ICO based on the NEO blockchain.
Travala is just one of an already small number of ICO that has launched a working product so far that has achieved numerous partnerships and a consolidated customer base.
The project was successful, but the native token for the platform, the AVA was not able to escape the 2018 challenge. For those who do not know it, the token grants access to price reductions in its services, in fact, token is trading at just over $ 0.10 at the time of writing.
Currently, XRP is priced at $ 0.28 after being red in the last 24 hours with a 0.07% decrease.
