Over the last few weeks, the team has been actively working to onboard hotels and accommodation providers onto the Tratok travel ecosystem. We are delighted to announce that after thorough testing we can announce a full launch date for Sunday 18th of August 2019.
How is this different from existing systems?
While other platforms simply feed results through metasearch APIs from third parties and use their tokens as a replacement for currency, Tratok has formed direct partnerships with these properties. As described in our whitepaper, Tratok actually leverages the power of blockchain in many ways to benefit all stakeholders with unmatched competitive advantages. In short, Tratok has solved the problems that others did not even comprehend.
What happens next?
Between now and then, the team will be working with pilot hotels to ensure adequate resolution of any teething problems in the ecosystem and to enhance the user experience of all stakeholders. Tratok started along this path to change the face of the travel and tourism industry forever by making travel more accessible and bringing the world closer together. We are delighted to begin empowering travel to Dubai, a tourism superpower that is known for its willingness to embrace disruptive technology and take tourism standards to the next level. This latest milestone completes one of the first foundation blocks in our ecosystem and means that Tratok has once again delivered a value-adding product to the industry. We look forward to seeing all of you in Dubai!
Special thanks to Dusit Thani
We believe that credit should be given where it is due and as such wish to acknowledge a very special group of people who helped Tratok disrupt the industry. Among the pilot hotels, the first to embrace Tratok and adopt the new technology was the iconic Dusit Thani hotel. Dusit Thani Dubai is a luxury hotel that offers 321 fully renovated rooms and suites in Dubai’s city centre. The 5-star accommodation combines traditional Thai design with a host of amenities and facilities to make each stay a unique and personalised experience.
Tratok wishes to publicly thank the management of Dusit Thani for being open to the necessary evolutionary changes the industry needed and for putting the interests of their guests and tourists first. As our first adopter, the team at Dusit Thani has assisted Tratok in optimising our ecosystem and ensuring accessible and hassle-free hospitality for all clients. They deserve special praise and recognition for this pioneer role!
