In the agency’s promotional video, co-founder Leon Siegmund said that they intend to promote Bitcoin as a better form of payment.
“Bitcoin is better money because there is no central bank, no inflation, and no transaction fee involved, and sending money just involves two people and a smartphone. You can now book an amazing adventure holiday in Gozo and pay with Bitcoin, so the local merchants get more bookings and revenue, and start seeing Bitcoin as better and beautiful banking,” Leon Siegmund said.
The agency has already signed up its first ever tourists under its promotion – Japanese citizen and infrastructural support engineer Takesho Koide and his wife.
Rather than booking with a regular travel agency, he and his wife have chosen to take the kayaking trip and three-night stay in Gozo offered by “Bitcoin Adventures.”
Malta has always been supportive of cryptocurrencies, making it one of the few Bitcoin-friendly countries in Europe.
Earlier this week, Malta piloted a Blockchain-based academic certificate recording system, and assembled its Blockchain advisory committee in early September.
