Over the decades, tourism has experienced continued growth and deepening diversification to become one of the fastest growing economic sectors in the world. Modern tourism is closely linked to development and encompasses a growing number of new destinations. These dynamics have turned tourism into a key driver for socioeconomic progress.
Today, the business volume of tourism equals or even surpasses that of oil exports, food products or automobiles. Tourism has become one of the major players in international commerce, and represents at the same time — one of the main income sources for many developing countries. This growth goes hand-in-hand with an increasing diversification and competition among destinations. This global spread of tourism in industrialized and developed states has produced economic and employment benefits in many related sectors — from construction to agriculture or telecommunications.

“TripPay(TCH)” token will be the payment solution for TripEcoSys.
Blockchain as distributed ledger, opened the gates of opportunities for real-time online payment solutions. Adoption of this technology in travel industry has always been on the digital currency side giving us just another way of payment for our reservations. Although this is a very important feature as the payments no longer would need extra fees there is an unseen cost-machine at the back of the transactions thus explaining the higher prices. We believe that Blockchain technology and digital currencies will eventually solve the transaction fee problem. To take it a step further, we will redefine how the travel product is defined and consumed while providing a real-time solution for TripEcoSys.
Let’s take a further look.
TripPay(TCH) is a ERC20 compatible token based on Ethereum. Blockchain, in its nature, offers a basic and fundamental solution. It is the immutable history of the transactions and thus expressing the final ownership of the assets. Assets can be money, a license or a ticket. Its elegant design in keeping a secure, distributed chain of information would help real business scenarios as discussed in the former section.
The key points further is aiming to achieve are real time settlement and:
- Decentralizing the process of settlement, thus removing the mediator.
- Reducing the amount of money kept or blocked in deposit or safety accounts.
- Cost reduction on payments.
- Simultaneous cross-border payments.
- Customizable travel asset.
- Interoperability like merger, divide, exchange of the travel assets.
The digital coin used by TripEcoSys are not registered by any government, its function is subject to the trust of its users, everything flows according to supply and demand. The cryptocurrency that we will use will be the TripPay(TCH) token.
