Taiwan-based blockchain startup OwlTing has developed OwlStay, a blockchain-based solution to provide integrated tourism services covering booking of flight tickets and hotel rooms as well as itinerary planning and detail information on sight-seeing places, according to company founder and CEO Darren Wang.
OwlStay provides information on local history and culture particularly for in-depth tourism, Wang said.
OwlTing launched OwlNest, a blockchain-based solution for hotel management, and OwlTing Experiences, a solution to provide detailed information for tourism planning, in 2017 and OwlJourney, a solution for booking hotel rooms, in 2019, Wang noted.
By virtue of Ethereum databases, OwlNest excludes any possibility of tampering with room reservations to avoid hotel operators’ double booking.
Besides, OwlTing has launched application of blockchain technology, mainly OwlChain which is claimed to be the world’s first blockchain-based food traceability system, anti-counterfeiting system OwlCheck and OwlTing Blockchain Services.
