Revolutionize the travel industry with blockchain-based travel platform
Winding Tree is a blockchain-based platform that makes travel cheaper for travelers and more profitable for providers. The company claims that by removing middlemen from the equation between travelers and the providers, such as the third-party website which charges a ridiculous fee, and with the power of blockchain to achieve transparency and security, it will help the travel service industry to increase its level down the road.
According to Crunchbase, Winding Tree already have a few launch partners, airlines, PMSs, and hotels where users can rent easily from the app. There is an on-going process to add more providers on the platform to make sure every user can get the best bang for the buck that they needed and to improve the options on the market. In addition to this, the platform is designed so that anyone will be able to use it in order to build their applications. The code is available on GitHub and the team has provided a Slack chat if anyone needs some helps setting up their platform.
According to Crunchbase, Winding Tree has raised a total of $1.5M in funding. It was done in a venture round which was finished on October 1, 2017. Haitao Capital is the key investor of the company who supported the project since the beginning. The team itself has 4 core members including its CEO Maksim Izmaylov, and 2 board members and advisors including Johnny Thorsen.
On its website, Winding Tree stated that its mission is to bring a revolution in travel and provide new resources and platform for travel agencies, suppliers, and end-users to get the most benefits for their time and money. Winding Tree has established various partnerships in order to achieve its goal, including but not limited to eRevMax, ATPCO, Hahn Air, Air France, Swiss International Air Lines, KLM, Airport Hotel Basel, Air Canada, Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, Nordic Choice Hotel, Etihad Airways, and Air New Zealand.
