Wayfarer is excited to be the first hotel in Japan to test the Winding Tree travel blockchain.
Wayfarer is excited to be the first hotel in Japan to test the Winding Tree travel blockchain. The Winding Tree platform is a non-profit blockchain with the goal of decentralizing travel distribution.
Booking.com and Expedia control the majority of online travel bookings today. On top of charging a 15-25% commission, they sit in between hotels and the traveler, making it challenging for hotels to build a direct relationship and understand travelers. For us to build our personalized experiences engine, we need to connect with our customer – and the Winding Tree blockchain allows us to do that with a platform that is omnichannel, charges no fees and is completely secure.
Winding Tree makes travel cheaper for travelers and more profitable for providers by using blockchain to remove current middlemen.
