February 6, 2023 — Borderless Capital has given Dtravel its stamp of approval with a token investment into TRVL. The partnership not only brings investment but also opens up a wealth of expertise and networking opportunities that will support Dtravel in becoming a leading provider for the vacation rental industry.

Launched in 2021, Dtravel is a peer-to-peer vacation rental ecosystem that has grown significantly over the last three years, winning travel industry awards and empowering thousands of vacation rental operators with the infrastructure to accept bookings without intermediaries. Instead of opting for a traditional marketplace model, Dtravel provides vacation rental operators with a direct booking product suite, the ability to create a smart contract-powered direct booking website, accept crypto payments, and distribute listings through Dtravel’s direct distribution network.

Dtravel is set to launch a second application that will allow travelers to easily discover and book ecosystem listings directly with owners and operators. In exchange for contributing value to Dtravel, both vacation rental operators and travelers earn TRVL, Dtravel’s native ecosystem token.

Strategic Partnership 

The funding from Borderless Capital will pave the way for the next phase of growth where Dtravel anticipates hundreds of thousands of operators, travelers, and TRVL token holders engaging with the Dtravel ecosystem. With a diverse team of seasoned leaders, Borderless Capital has already begun advising on Dtravel’s tokenomics with a vision to ensure the long-term sustainability of the ecosystem while leveraging TRVL to power significant network growth with a flywheel effect. Having supported the success of protocols and ecosystems like Helium, Wormhole, Algorand, Solana, Filecoin, Hivemapper, Polygon, Dimo, and more, Borderless Capital sees its commitment to Dtravel as a new frontier for the adoption of DePIN (Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Networks).

“Working with a strategic and experienced partner like Borderless Capital is an important step for Dtravel as we transition to our next phase of growth. Their DePIN portfolio, expertise, particularly in token economics, and network in web3, will unlock a huge level of growth for Dtravel.” – Cynthia Huang, CEO of Dtravel

“Dtravel is bringing a transformational approach to the vacation rental industry and web3. We see a lot of potential in the DePIN service networks and believe that the travel market is ripe for disruption with projects such as Dtravel leading the way. We believe Dtravel will be a driver of web3 adoption and it’s something we’re excited to support and help grow.” – Álvaro Gracia, Borderless Capital
