In this week’s #BlockchainThursday, we’ll introduce you to a forward-thinking ticketing platform that features the options of purchasing, selling, and exchanging NFT plane tickets: Travel.xyz.
Travel.xyz is a web3 ticketing platform from Argentine airline Flybondi. The airline has partnered with blockchain technology company TravelX to develop their innovative ticketing platform. Travel.xyz helps buyers purchase tickets as non-fungible tokens (NFTs), which they have named “NFTickets.” Customers can pay for their tickets through cryptocurrency payment system Binance Pay, using USD Coin (USDC) cryptocurrency to complete the transaction. Travel.xyz aims to support additional crypto stablecoins in the future to provide more possibilities to customers.
You can search for international and domestic flights on Travel.xyz by inputting your preferred dates of travel, desired location, and the total number of passengers. Travel.xyz lets you reserve your desired flight without the need for immediate payment. The platform will lock the price in place so you can pay up to 72 hours later. Travel.xyz’s tokenized tickets have greater functionality than standard tickets. NFTicket holders will be able to sell or transfer the NFTs to other travelers up to three days before the applicable flight. You can use Travel.xyz to transfer your NFTicket to whomever you want without penalty. This feature allows for greater flexibility and can help ease the stress from sudden changes of plans. Ticket holders can also use Travel.xyz to resell or auction their NFTickets. By reselling or auctioning your NFTickets, you can potentially recoup your expenses and even make a profit. These features can provide greater flexibility for travelers without the risks associated when purchasing tickets well in advance. Be sure to check out the Auction page to view all available auctions. You may just find a travel opportunity too good to pass up.
