VISION & PLATFORM
We provide inventory booking and transaction management solutions for the travel and entertainment industries using blockchain and the ethereum core framework. We connect vendors, such as airlines, with blockchain technology thereby achieving greater transparency, trust, and efficiency in transaction, inventory and booking management.
Our solution is permissioned, private, and governed by industry stakeholders with a focus on vendors and vendor participation. This inclusive approach has enabled us to deploy blockchain fairly quickly in the travel industry. Vendors (vs distributors, aggregators, and bundlers) should have the highest margins.
Vendors should have full control over their own inventory — including how it is booked, modified, updated, cancelled, bundled, and commissioned.
NDC and ONE Order are well guided, paper standards in search of technical standards and build. Given blockchain’s shared-and -consensus-driven nature, it is well positioned to begin to develop technical standards for the immediate and tactical needs of NDC and ONE Order implementation. In this environment, the implications for many aspects of travel distribution are significant.
Blockskye is the founding travel member of the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance. We develop on STRATO with BlockApps, the leading provider of enterprise solutions in ethereum.
Our solutions are custom, scalable, and designed for integration across the ethereum ecosystem.
