Changing Transactions in Travel Ecosystem with Blockchain

A Blockchain-based payment and settlement platform for the travel industry, transforming how companies in the travel ecosystem interact with each other and their customers.
Read our Whitepaper

Autonomous Smart Travel Ecosystem

Further's disruption starts with Autonomous Smart Travel Ecosystem where any asset provider from small to large, Airline to Hotel or Tour Provider would be able to create their own assets, create their own modifiable services and publish them using their own smart contract and get real time payment throughout the system using blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

We will begin with tokenization of current assets from proprietary systems and for easy settlement and payment and continue with identity sharing and ultimately achieving a fully integrated set of systems with blockchain which will directly tokenize the assets without any midware.


Travel is one of the biggest industries in the world with a global economic contribution of 7 trillion U.S. dollars in 2016. But the process of customer booking is based on the rules that were set more than 40 years ago. Even with the arrival of e-commerce, the standards didn't change to reflect the needs of a digital-era consumer. This is why you are having a badly designed experience with not many options to suit your needs when you travel.

Services for our development environment

Digital Currency of the Network: Aton

Further Network's token, Aton, is based on Stellar. Further Network will issue a fixed amount of Stellar tokens as Atons when establishing the ecosystem. No more Atons will be generated in the future.

Aton acts as a settlement, payment and transaction currency.

Settlement Currency

Different types of travel companies will be able to perform their settlement process between each other in real time by using Further Network Platform.

Payment Currency

Involved parties (travel agencies, travel wholesale websites, airlines, etc.) are able to make payments between each other in the system. Also, an end can buy tickets or make reservations from all available product issuers (Airlines, Travel Agencies, Hotels, etc.) in our network; using our wallet system.

Transaction Currency

Aton is the fuel for Further Network, just like Ether is in Ethereum. When a party creates any type of transaction on the network, whether it be issuing a ticket, changing a booking, making a settlement, they will have to pay a fee for the transaction cost of that process. Further Network will collect transaction fees in Aton.

Token Distribution

Meet with your new enhanced ticket:
Smart Travel Record®

The ticket should be more than just a manifest of flight information. It must be customizable or even personalizable for traveler’s needs and preferences. With Further Network's unique technologies travelers will be able to change, sell, add options and customize their tickets. Moreover it will not be a simple ticket anymore but Smart Travel Record, a Further Network technology.


STR, Smart Travel Record; a smart token, unique Further technology consisting of necessary data for flight, hotel or any other reservation or any other travel product. STR will help solve the issues of settlement and payment using Aton, our digital currency. STR would also bring more structured data and automation to the operational usability for vendors to offer their travelers specific rule sets.
