PART 2: Community Questions

Anna – BitYard: Q1.Can you explain in detail the Smart Program? Why should I join it and what are its benefits?

Ben Rogers – Travala CMO: AVA can be staked to access our Smart Program which receives discounted travel on our online booking portal as well as voting rights in the governance pool.

Currently, if you stake 250 AVA, you get access to our first-tier which will give you a 1% discount on your accommodation with a 2% giveback, whereas the tiers go to 2500 AVA which results in a 5% discount and 5% giveback.

By staking the token and being a smart member, access is granted to the governance pool, and when votes are made towards community grants, rewards have been issued to the smart members.

Finally, our sister company, Dtravel, has put aside a 10mm token allocation to smart members that will result in airdrops to the community members.

These can be purchased on the open market and staked on our platform to become a member.

Ben Rogers – Travala CMO:  It’s no secret that has NFTs soon incoming. We have also publicly announced that we will be making entrances into the metaverse.  There’s a lot that can be done with both of these initiatives as it relates to travel and I guess you’ll have to tune into our social feeds and wait for the announcements to come.

Anna – BitYard: Thanks for sharing about this 😊 Q3.Is it easy to use to book tickets/hotels?
