It is difficult not to know today about the Travala project and its platform, especially since it has shown over time, even during the crisis generated by the Coronavirus blockade, that it can still boast positive figures in terms of reserves.
All this has also been possible thanks to the acceptance of payments with cryptocurrencies and the discounts that Travala has offered thanks to AVA token, which you can even bet now.
For its part, Chainlink (LINK) has become the symbol of decentralized finance (DeFi) considering that decentralized oracles are very useful in this sector, especially in the Ethereum blockchain. LINK has also gained in value, as it recently went from a few cents to over $ 20 in no time.
Chainlink as a payment method in Travala
The Chainlink token was clearly born as a tool to make use of decentralized oracles and therefore it was not born as a payment method like other tokens, for example Bitcoin Cash, but thanks to Travala's vision of the future, LINK now also can be used to pay for flights and hotels around the world.
In fact, today the LINK token has been added as a crypto payment method, along with the myriad options offered by the platform itself, including dozens of crypto assets but also fiat currencies.
The introduction of this token was highly requested by the community, as mentioned by the CEO of Travala, Juan Otero:
“With the adoption of cryptocurrencies on the rise, we want to ensure that our users on Travala.com have access to the most popular payment options. LINK has always been a token requested by members of our community, that is why we have responded to this request ”.
This is very positive news for the entire crypto community, despite the fact that the AVA token has recently dropped to around $ 0.65, while in early August it reached an ATH (All Time High) of $ 2.46.
Meanwhile, LINK has gone from $ 19.85 to $ 9.87.
