Layer-2 blockchain solution Polygon has linked up with Zostel to build decentralized travel non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
Ethereum L2 scaling solution Polygon has announced that Zostel, an Indian-based hostel chain, will be launching its non-fungible token (NFT) on the platform.
Polygon noted that the digital collectibles named Zo World are decentralized travel NFT, which will feature several traits, including destination, culture, time, weather, journey, etc, thus making each of the non-fungible tokens unique.
“Polygon is excited to work closely with Zo World and support their ambitious metaverse roadmap revolutionizing the future of travel,” the Ethereum scaling solution said.
Benefits of Holding the NFT
With the Zo World NFTs, holders will own a stake in some of the properties in the project’s metaverse, which has a tendency to surge in value in the near future.
Aside from owning a stake in Zo World’s real estate, holders of the NFT will have the opportunity to win an all-expenses-paid trip to an unlocked Zostel destination for a period of three months, the announcement notes.
Furthermore, the NFT holders will be given mouth-watering discounts on all Zo World’s products and services, including having access to premium travel merchandise, among other benefits.
Zo World’s native cryptocurrency $DOPE token will come in handy in the partnership between Polygon and Zostel.
Following the announcement, the cryptocurrency will usher in several benefits, especially creating the possibility of gamifying travel. Through this, travel trips will be converted to real-life role-playing games.
“Travelers will be able to complete quests in the real world, utilize augmented reality with their smartphones, collect loot boxes, and find hidden treasures,” the announcement adds.
Meanwhile, Polygon has partnered on several Web 3.0-related projects. As Crypto Basic reported, Polygon joined forces with Rainmaker to launch a Create-to-Earn platform, where social media will be rewarded in MATIC and NFT for creating media content.
