The primary goal of JetSet is to match travelers with travel-based businesses, starting with peer to peer currency exchanges, and then expanding into a marketplace. Travelers will then be able to use their tokens not only for currency exchanges, but to acquire a variety of goods and services, from booking airline tickets to reserving hotel rooms. We are more than just a place for travelers to book and buy things pre-trip – we support the traveler from the time they book their flight to well after they’ve returned home and are unpacking their bags.
When a traveler is stepping off a long flight in a foreign country they often don’t have many tools readily available to them. Cell service is dependent upon their home country’s cell plan, and services directly available to them at the airport are often overpriced. As mentioned earlier, foreign currency is one of the biggest and costliest hurdles. With the JetSet platform, we can eliminate those immediate off-the-plane hurdles.
When a user signs up for a JetSet account, they deposit money into their account in several ways. They can use an ACH transfer, use cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, or Stellar, or their credit and debit cards. Tokens are purchased and deposited immediately through the desktop app or mobile app, with a confirmation email sent to the user. Once a traveler is in their country, they can obtain currency through two channels.
