Nano cryptocurrency has long been lauded for its speed and efficiency to process payments. It is an instant, zero-fee, scalable digital currency which aims to foster the adoption of cryptocurrencies en masse.
With that said, the latest development with Travala would certainly help the long-term vision of NANO. Addition of NANO to Travala’s coin roster will enable travelers to pay with the digital currency for more than 550,000 hotels and 82,000 destinations worldwide.

NANO will join the list of other digital tokens accepted by Travala as means of payment.
The online hotel and travel booking platform added Ripple’s XRP in December 2018. Prior to that, the platform gave its users the option to pay with cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Dash, TUSD, and other altcoins.
It’s worth highlighting that Travala has its own native token as well. Their digital token AVA can be used by users to make payments for services availed or accommodations booked at any of their available properties.
Often called the “Airbnb of crypto,” Travala has emerged as an impressive platform to book vacations and accommodations worldwide using cryptocurrencies.
Travala leverages blockchain technology by using it to eliminate the problem of “fake reviews” which is rather rampant in the travel industry.
Travala runs on the NEO Blockchain and raised an impressive $2.6 million through their initial coin offering (ICO) in April 2018.
NANO Making Steady Progress towards Adoption
NANO has had a commendable 2019 yet. Although the altcoin fell more than 80 percent during 2018’s bear market, it continues to stride forward to achieve their milestones.
BlockchainReporter reported on January 25, 2019, how NANO detailed on their Dolphin V18 Node Release – promising tremendous performance enhancement of the ecosystem.
Similarly, on January 7, 2019, hardware crypto wallet firm Ledger unveiled the NANO X wallet with Bluetooth feature, which makes it possible to transfer digital tokens even without an internet connection.
At press time, NANO ranks 40th in the CoinMarketCap crypto table with a total market cap slightly above $108 million and the 24-hour trading volume of approx $1.5 million.
