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.
Our Blockchain-based technology enables a faster and customizable ticketing and travel experience. We aim to help Airlines, Agencies, Hotel Wholesalers and travel product issuers alike to solve the Billing, Settlement, and Payment issues while removing the middle-man and completing BSP in real-time.

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.

Aton, the driving force that Further Ecosystem will be running on. All transactions which has a value in the Further Ecosystem will both be kept in desired currency and Aton. This will allow the system to calculate the entirety of the transactions and set the balance independent of the currency used by the issuer or the purchaser. Since STR holds both the desired currency and Aton value, the system will calculate the settlement over Aton which will work real-time and currency free.

STR will have the value in Aton.
Any travel product which has a value in issuer’s preferred currency will have a value in Aton.
This helps the system to calculate the settlement in real-time over Aton.
If preferred currency is not in Aton we will only do the settlement.
This establishes trust between parties, where traditional methods take time and third party involvement.

Value in Aton is kept for Settlement purposes.
If issuer chooses to receive payment in Aton, the payment will be in real-time as well.
Over the border transfers
A Brazilian agency doing a hotel reservation in Thailand;
Agency can pay in Brazilian Reais.
Hotel will receive in Thai Baht.
Further will charge in Aton.

Transaction Fees of Further Network will be in Aton. It is similar to gas price in Ether.
Transaction fees will be calculated based on:
Type of transaction
Complexity of transaction
Nodes involving in transaction.
In other words, Aton is the currency that runs Further Ecosystem.
