Chung Kyung-Jae, chairman of the Korea Accommodation Industry Association, said in a statement - “We expect to become a market leader in the accommodation industry by improving the structural problems of the current hotel booking application operators, such as: Yanolja and YeogiOttea (WithInnovation). In addition, we expects to contribute to the further development and improvement of the hospitality industry, by operating a reasonable accommodation reservation application.”

HUPAYX’s TechFin business model utilizes “point” based payment system that will be used for all booking and payments. In this case all digital currencies can be converted into points, which are served as an internal stablecoin pegged 1:1 with local currency such as KRW. Now HUPAYX can more flexibly cover both crypto friendly and crypto restricted markets, as a result covering all regulations of fintech and crypto industries. Below it is introduced as a Conventional Business Model:
