Concierge.io is a decentralized travel booking marketplace. Concierge.io will be the first system of travel which connects consumers and vendors directly together over the platform, to discuss their deals without any fee or commission. In addition to that, we will build Concierge.io that will be the first global travel marketplace/application that will connect with the decentralized engine and utilize the blockchain. (The Concierge.io Marketplace).
The decentralized system will hold the CGE booking ledger which will be the core of the ecosystem. Existing platforms (e.g. Booking.com, Airbnb. com, Expedia.com) are currently centralized and take fees from the vendors and/or the end customer. Additional middlemen are the payment processors. All listings and deal parameters on Concierge.io will be decentralized on the NEO blockchain, eliminating all 3rd parties and guaranteeing transparent execution. For Vendors – Concierge.io the marketplace website and mobile clients will present an easy-touse interface to add and edit their listings on the decentralized CGE Ledger. API integrated oneclick solutions for transferring current listings from other platforms providing maximum comfort.
Traditional payment methods (e.g. Visa/Master Card) will also be supported as an option. The synergy between the concierge.io marketplace and the decentralized CGE Ledger provides an ecosystem that is self-sufficient and powerful enough to compete with the best service providers in the $500 Billion travel and tourism sector. For Consumers - Will be able to browse through their favorite listings, using both web and mobile apps, utilizing reviews that cannot be tampered with due utilizing the blockchain.
We will focus the Concierge.io marketplace to be as user-centric as possible, offering comfortable user interface and overall experience. By default, the 0% commission model provides the lowest rates, possible only when end customer and property owner deal directly. Current market middlemen take 15-40% of the deal. Releasing the CGE Ledger as a decentralized solution will bring this value back to the end-customer, allowing cheaper travel. Thus, by integrating marketplaces such as Concierge.io, the value of the CGE token will increase and will become a catalyst for change in the industry. For The World – The entire decentralized CGE Ledger, built on the NEO blockchain, will be open source and free-to-use by anyone in the world. Concierge.io website and the app will be the first end-user applications on top of this blockchain platform.
