Under the deal, Crypto.com’s payment app will integrate into Travala.com. This will help offer a seamless interface to facilitate bookings on the network.
Previously, when customers intended to make payments using cryptocurrency, they had to manually complete transfers using their wallets.
Crypto.com’s one million users can now visit 2 million places in 230 countries.
Kris Marszalek, CEO of Crypto.com, said:
“At Crypto.com, we are continuously building an ecosystem to foster mass adoption of cryptocurrency. Travala.com is a well-recognized brand in the crypto community and we are pleased to welcome them aboard to our expanding merchant network for Crypto.com Pay Checkout.”

Meanwhile, Steve Hipwell, COO of Travala.com, said:
“We’re excited to partner with Crypto.com to further drive cryptocurrency adoption to the masses and make paying with cryptocurrency a norm and look forward to the Crypto.com users joining our crypto travel movement and supporting crypto adoption by booking.”
Earlier, Cryptolydian reported that Travala has announced accepting room booking with the most popular cryptocurrency Tether (USDT).
The travel agency said in a recent report that the number of rooms booked via its website has been rising steadily in 2019, and increased remarkably this month. In December, the number of rooms amounted to 1,528, up 15.2% compared with November. In addition, the average room price reached $115, rising more than 15 percent from $133 during the same period.
