We are so proud of the “Truly Trustworthy” award at the Blockchain Leadership Summit in Switzerland. It was a really challenging task in view of the number of competitors: about 300 startups presented their projects at this event. But we did it!
The voting included several stages. The jury and competition committee chose the 13 best contestants among whom 3 winners were selected. The main criteria taken into account were the startup’s team, business model, token economy, MVP / pilot product and jurisdiction.
At the Blockchain Leadership Summit, our Chairman of the Board Besarioni Kamarauli and CEO Denis Severyuk explained one of the serious problems in the hotel industry HotelFriend’s solves: fake bookings. The number can reach up to 30% in average according to the poll we took among hotels.
HotelFriend presents a Digital Travel Passport - blockchain based global database of guests, which lets them store and use their ID with 100% safety.
Blockchain technology guarantees safety and transparency of data use for a guest-traveler. And it helps hotels to comply with the KYC policy. Even more importantly – no more queues at the check-in and check-out. For businesses, this solves the problems of fake booking and fraud with credit cards.
