The Cool Cousin travel app is positioning itself to be the first P2P travel agency through the implementation of blockchain technology. The app currently functions as a VC-backed travel platform that connects travelers with a community of locals to receive curated city guides for a more personalized experience. The platform already has over 500,000+ travelers and almost 1,000 Cousins in 70 cities.
The existing Cool Cousin platform is already quite innovative but the brand is looking to further its expansion with an implementation of a cryptocurrency named CUZ. The new token is using the Ethereum blockchain and will be used to incentivize the growth of its community of local experts. This will allow travelers to receive personalized concierge-like services from locals through a token-based, smart contract and P2P platform.
