Dogecoin (DOGE) has become one of the popular coins despite the lack of developments that have befallen the digitoken in recent years. It has a fiercely loyal base among crypto enthusiasts and continues to dominate the news with new listings on blockchain payment platforms.
The latest listing which has got Dogecoin hodlers talking is the addition of the coin on hotel booking website Trippki. The blockchain based hotel booking platform announced on Thursday that it had added DOGE to its existing list of cryptos which can be used to purchase hotel bookings.
Trippki has developed since its inception to a popular hotel booking platform with over 1 million hotels on its platform. Dogecoin (DOGE) joins Bitcoin (BTC), Monero (XMR), Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), Decred (DCR) and Lightning Bitcoin (LBTC) as transactional currencies on the platform.
Trippki has a lot to gain with the adoption of the meme coin as it would be tapping into the global reach of Dogecoin users. the blockchain industry is a growing one and integrating a popular coin like DOGE greatly improves the popularity of the hotel booking platform.
Dogecoin (DOGE) would be able to be exposed to more opportunities in the travel industry as this new listing could increase the number of transactions on its network. The large number of hotels on Trippki’s platform means that the DOGE hodlers can easily book hotels across with the world using the digitoken.
These gains are amplified in a broader sense as it shows that the coin is seen as a pivotal digital asset in the travel industry. In the short run, it would be no surprise if DOGE makes a sharp jump in price to around $0.003 in light of the announcement.
Dogecoin (DOGE) has seen a major boost in recent weeks from the coin teetering on the brink at 0.0019 early March. The meme coin was able to rebound in April and has been trading within the range of $0.0025- $0.0026 in the past few weeks.
It remains to be seen whether this latest adoption by Trippki would spike the desired effects which could propel the coin towards a bullish run in Q2.
