Tripio, the blockchain-based hotel booking platform also known as the “Crypto Airbnb” is now offering its users to book 450,000 hotels and residential accommodation using the BNB token.

For Tripio, the partnership with Binance is a significant milestone following $20 million funding round in March led by some of the major VC firms like OK Blockchain Capital, Ceyuan Ventures, Node Capital, F2Pool, and GENESIS Capital. This is also an important development towards the merchant adoption which will further fuel the mass adoption of cryptocurrencies among users.
On Dec 3rd, Binance has also partnered with Decentraland, making BNB one of the few tokens available for the upcoming LAND auction. According to the partnership agreement, on purchasing LAND through the auction, 5% of your BNB will be burned immediately, thus removing from circulation.
Following the major announcements by Binance, the BNB token has surged almost 11 per cent in the last 24 hours, making it the 13th largest cryptocurrency by market cap.
