When it comes to popularity, we cannot ignore the crazy tendency of investors since the birth of cryptocurrency. It is no exaggeration to say that in the financial sector, “encryption is the hottest trend” is changing the definition of currency and payment. It was a mystery at the beginning, but now it has become a billion-dollar industry with growing customers, free from geographical restrictions.
When multinational companies such as Tesla and Facebook publicly promote the use of virtual currencies to users, the upsurge of cryptocurrencies can be seen. The newest member of the fan list is Airbnb, as the team looks forward to supporting crypto-based payment options for its users. In an interaction, Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky disclose The company has received multiple suggestions from customers requesting that encrypted payments be included on the platform. Pioneer asked his 400,000 followers to share some suggestions related to improving the portal. Interestingly, the 4,000 comments received on this post listed crypto payments as the highest recommendation.
From San Francisco, Airbnb is a popular online platform that provides convenient accommodation services, such as homestay rentals for vacations or tourist activities. The company has a strong customer base from all over the world. Now, if the company adds support for cryptocurrency as a payment method, users can use a convenient, safe, and transparent settlement system every time they stay at an Airbnb venue. However, there is no official confirmation that the Airbnb cluster contains a new feature. In early September, Brian stated that users have asked them to initiate cryptocurrency settlement on the platform for some time.
The company clearly emphasized the company’s future encryption plans in the IPO prospectus submitted to the US Securities and Exchange Commission.The document shows that the company will adopt fast-growing technologies such as cryptocurrency, tokenization, identity verification tools, such as Blockchain technology, Biometrics, artificial intelligence, cloud technology, etc. However, the team is cautious about accepting such next-generation technologies.
Experts warn that the injection of these technologies may require a lot of investment, and these investments may not bring the expected employment results. The company believes that people are reluctant to invest in cryptocurrencies because they believe that cryptocurrencies are complex or volatile. The risk of encryption failure can also damage the company’s image. These concerns may affect Airbnb’s decision to support cryptocurrency. The company will consider all aspects to ensure customer satisfaction.
