According to the new plan, more than 100 tickets have been issued. This is the first project to permanently create a payment infrastructure: from a banknote reservation system to a bank payment system.
The introduction of the Ethereum platform provides significant opportunities for the business operations of airlines and their partners to improve. The upgrade speed has been increased from 14 days to 23 seconds.
FAT Taiwan Inc., a Taiwanese who owns the Far East Airlines brand, recently stated that the company’s services can now be paid in cryptocurrency.

No registration is required to book a room through this service. After a successful booking, each user will receive a bitcoin reward. The refund amount depends on the booking fee and the BTC exchange rate on the day of booking, up to a maximum of 5%. The extra coins can be transferred to charity.
Are you going to travel? If many travel services already accept Bitcoin, there is no need to use the “old world currency“. You can now start earning cryptocurrency! As cryptocurrency has become a very popular payment method in the new world. However, we hope our customers can use this payment method in the near future.
