The Good Stuff

Hello! Today is going to be a great day for all our token holders that bought tokens in our token sale earlier last year! Today on February 1st you will be receiving your first Airdrop of three that will be distributed to you within the next year. Here are all the details to make sure you are and stay eligible for your next Airdrop.

First, the numbers and some math for you to wrap your head around at the end of our token sale we hit our soft cap of 4 million dollars raised and we were left with a fair bit of unsold tokens around 180 million TRVL tokens total left over. We worked with our advisors and came to a decision to airdrop the remaining tokens but we wanted to make sure we did it in a way where it would not tank our token when it hits the exchanges and here is what we all came up with. …

Hello everyone,

This is Javier Ruedas the Community Manager here at TravelBlock. The team and I would like to give you a mini Update before the Major stuff is announced at the beginning of November.

Since then the team have been extremely busy developing the business, the brand and the platform. With us now in Quarter 4, we wanted to share a brief mini update on what we are currently working on; the decisions we have made and the reasoning behind them, as we appreciate that you are all eager to use your TRVL tokens on the platform. …

“We all do better when we work together”

- President Bill Clinton

Next week, former President Bill Clinton will address an excited and buoyant audience at Ripple’s Swell conference in San Francisco, California and, here at TravelBlock, we too share the desire to make cross-border movements (people, not payments, in our case) easier and less expensive. We want to support fellow blockchain enthusiasts attending Swell and help them make the most of their visit to the Golden Gate City with savings of up to 35% on hotels during this busy conference period.

While the exact location of the conference is yet to be publicly revealed, we do not keep secrets from our TravelBlock members and in this article, we can share some Ripple inspired hotel choices that are available at hugely discounted prices at Travelblock.com for those needing some last minute accommodation. …

Look into Business Hotels

Hotels that cater mostly to the traveling business individual can often be slower during the weekends and summer months, which can lead to lower prices.

Visit at Less Popular Times

Research your destination’s peak seasons and days. Summer in the Caribbean, winter in Europe, weekends near convention areas, and weekdays in resort areas are considered peak traffic times. It’s simple demand and supply economics. …
