“Paradise” embraces this technology to open a decentralized direct booking in the travel and tourism sector. Peer‐to‐peer economy applications, typified by Expedia, TripAdvisor, Booking.com, and Priceline have achieved great success in the past few years. However, these platforms charge high commission fees, advertising fees and also payment processing fees from their users in order to run. Huge growth is only enjoyed by a select few VCs and the founders. No interest in the company, very little, if any, of the appreciation value, goes back to the guests and hosts. Thanks to Ethereum smart contracts, it is now possible to build a truly decentralized and automated sharing economy platform. This will be done with no middlemen, 0% fees for advertising, 0% commission fees and by sharing the wealth with the users in a two‐sided marketplace. The Paradise vast connection with the biggest hotel chains in the world will be an only huge benefit to users.
