Experio was born out of a necessity to solve a personal problem I had while founding SeaAdviser.com, an online travel agency specialized in experiences, water sports and outdoors activities in Colombia.

Our target market, at the time, was English speaking expats and travelers willing to book unique travel experiences in Colombia. Since most of our clients were paying using credit cards, the forwarding of the payouts to the local hosts of experiences was very difficult, mostly due to the high fees, delayed transfers and because of the fact that the majority of our activity providers did not have a bank account, or at least a reliable bank that would allow international transfers. So I thought that there should be a better way to do cross-border payments.

Thanks to the DLT technology provided by the Stellar Network, it is now possible to easily and securely allow international payments between travelers and providers of unique travel experiences. The revolution that crypto-currencies represents will allow everyone to have access to cheap, secure and reliable financial services, specially in the travel industry.

In this sense, I would like to invite you to join our ecosystem and be part of our Early Adopter Reward Program.

Below you will find the top 6 reasons why you should consider join our decentralized travel ecosystem on the Stellar Network:

  1. Standard Reward Program, targeted to Stellar XLM holders. We will be making an airdrop of 5% of the total Experio Tokens (a new version of our Whitepaper will soon be released). The amount to be airdropped will depend on the amount of XLM in the wallet, the more lumens the higher the tokens.

Requirements: Member of our Telegram group. and Follow us on Twitter

More details soon.

2. Ambassador Program: Targeted to enthusiasts about Experio, that would like to spread the word and support us with voluntary social media engagements. Benefits: Official recognition as an Experio Ambassador.

Requirements: Be part of our Standard Reward Program, + team member of our Keybase.

If you would like to become an Experio Ambassador, please send us an email to info@experio.at

3. Referral program: Soon you will be able to get crypto directly to your Experio Wallet for each of your friends who submits a travel experience or makes a purchase in our marketplace.

4. Access to our Ecosystem: Have access to our marketplace of activity providers in Europe and check out our dashboard currently in beta.

5. Share your passion: Are you a tour provider, host of an activity or a hotel owner?, If so, you can submit today your own travel experience, customize it and prepare it to start monetize it.

6. Payments on testnet: Create your own wallet on the stellar testnet and perform test purchases.

We want to offer tools -like our Payment API (ExperioPay), Wallet, SDKs, Marketplace and Dashboard- that allow to companies and hosts of travel experiences all over the world to create their own experiences, securely manage their bookings, and monetize their passions in fiat tokens and in cryptocurrencies.

We are currently working on exciting partnerships that we will be announcing soon. I will keep you posted.

Best regards,
Olvis
