For the first time from Mongolia, Tapatrip.com participated in this year’s meeting and introduced the company to the international arena. The founder and CEO Batgerel Z. participated as a panelist in the main and branch discussions and presented the blockchain-based incentive program that is newly introduced in the tourism sector, which attracted a lot of interest from companies operating in this sector.
Tapatrip.com is a blockchain based online travel platform that has a unique selling point of providing its customers with TTC – TapaTrip crypto coin for each mile/km travelled. TTC can be exchanged in the crypto market and spent towards their next travel within Tapatrip.com. Apart from the unique incentive program Tapatrip.com has managed to integrate previously separate, scattered online and offline ticketing systems where it is now possible to purchase flight, hotel, tours, train, city, and intercity bus tickets all via one platform in Mongolia. Tapatrip.com is looking to expand globally with the same strategy by integrating distinct ticketing systems in Central Asian countries in the next few years.
