A new dawn has come for the TRX coin as the news about a global acceptance hit the crypto community. The cryptocurrency is now valid for hotel bookings on Travala.com. Well, this should have been like ordinary news except that the hotel-booking platform is in 210 countries. The figure we are looking at here is about 500,000 hotels accepting the coin. The CEO, Justin Sun proudly announced this achievement during the weekend. To say that the people who buy TRON in the crypto industry are happy is an understatement.

A push towards the forward direction
The company which serves the bookings needs of 568,000 hotels in more than 80,000 destinations has made an encouraging move. By adopting digital currency, they have pushed the adoption of the tech to many parts of the world.
Travala.com is hoping for positive changes in the travel industry. They also plan to use cryptocurrencies and simplify hotel bookings for the community who use TRX. Another plan of the company is to merge structures which use token incentives and the blockchain technology.
Apart from Tron, the company also accept many digital currencies on its booking platform. They make use of those coins in the list of the top ten such as BTC, EOS, BNB, XRP, etc. They also accept stablecoins such as TUSD and DAI. Well, other coins are also there such DOGE and NANO.
Travala.com is helping to push the adoption of cryptocurrencies faster than people expect. By bringing it into the travel industry, they are making people all over the world to consider the digital currencies.
When you consider the number of coins which the company has adopted so far, you will understand their efforts. As of now, they make use of 15 coins including the recent TRX. AVA coin also joined the company list recently. However, Travala.com also accepts other electronic payments platforms such as Visa, Paypal and Mastercard.
Effects of adoption on Tron Value
There is no indication yet about a possible rise in TRX value. One thing we are seeing is that Tron is growing slightly as the coins amongst the top ten are growing.
Another news on crypto adoption is that Airbnb is now accepting digital coins. The company announced that their gift cards are available for BTC, LTC and ETH. Also, you can buy it with either DOGE or DASH.
The only hitch is that it is open to only US citizens for now.
