About 600 thousand hotels around the world will start accepting bitcoin

The online travel platform Agoda (part of Booking Holdings) has partnered with a similar crypto service, travala.com. Now more than 600 thousand hotels in almost 200 countries of the world can now be booked using cryptocurrency.

Bitcoin, Ethereum, Binance Coin, and more than 25 digital currencies are accepted for payment.

In early July, travala.com partnered with Expedia, another travel platform, which offers the ability to book and rent more than 700,000 hotels, accommodations, and other properties. Since then, the start-up token AVA began to rise rapidly in price. In early July, it traded just above the $0.3 level. To date, the altcoin rate has risen 450% to $1.65, briefly rising to $2.

In seven days, the total capitalization of the cryptocurrency market showed an impressive growth – by almost 16%

The day before, on August 3, it became known that from 2021 the Swiss bank Basler Kantonalbank will begin to provide services for cryptocurrency trading and storage through a subsidiary of Bank Cler. This is the first time a Swiss government-backed company has entered the digital asset market.
