Online travel & accommodations firm Travala.com has integrated STP Network into its platform, allowing for payments to be made in native STPT. Travala.com recently partnered with hotel booking giant Expedia, expanding its hotel and accommodations offerings to a total of over 2 million in 230 countries.
Travala.com’s partnership with STP Network enhances the utility of STPT by enabling it to be used for purchasing travel services.
Minhui Chen, STP Network CEO, said:
“Travala.com has solidified itself as the leader in accommodation booking platforms that offer users more convenient payment alternatives especially with their partnerships with giants like Expedia and Booking.com. We are very excited about this integration, which adds greater utility for the STPT token and will help promote strong collaboration between both communities.”

The Travala.com platform has experienced a surge in demand even in recent times, demonstrating consumer appetite for innovative solutions and modern payment options, which will further the exposure of the STP ecosystem to an actively growing user base.
Juan Otero, Travala.com CEO, said:
“The overhead associated with integrating new blockchains into our platforms makes us very selective about how we expand the available options so that we do so in a meaningful way. STP Network’s ecosystem and community will help strengthen our global presence and will be a key partner for us in Asia.”
