Singapore FinTech Festival 2019

Save 23% on your hotel in the KeyoCoin marketplace

Nov 5 · 3 min read

It’s back!

The world’s largest financial technology conference, The Singapore FinTech Festival, is returning to the city for its fourth year on the 11–15 November, 2019. As conferences go, this is a biggy, providing a global platform for the FinTech community to connect, collaborate and co-create, and is the perfect place to get inspired by visionaries and thought leadership executives from financial institutions, fintechs, venture capital firms, central banks and regulators and academia.

This year the festival will have four major themes: sustainability, finance and tech; the future of finance; investment and global market opportunities; and exponential technologies.

Careful where you rest your head

Singapore is a big city, so you’ll have plenty of accommodation options if you are planning to attend, but if you’re booking online, beware of the hidden commissions charged by popular travel aggregators (Booking, Expedia etc.). Sure the hotel rates might seem like the best on the market, but almost every one of them charges a hidden booking fee, averaging between 15 to 30%, just for the convenience of comparing all those rooms in one place.

These companies have usually negotiated exclusive ‘rate parity agreements’, to ensure that their rates won’t even be beaten by the hotel themselves, so it’s very hard to know if you’re being ripped off. It’s a false economy, and you, the consumer, is invariably left picking up the bill without even knowing it.

Here at KeyoCoin we’re blazing a different path. One that throws away this deceptive pricing strategy, and uses the best of blockchain technology to build a marketplace without all the hidden charges and sneaky fees. By cutting 15–30% from the amount you pay at the checkout, we’re able to deliver BIG savings on hotel bookings.

Our marketplace boasts over 150,000 hotels around the world, and we’re so confident about our booking engine, we guarantee we’ll beat the prices you find anywhere else online.
