Benefits in Buying Flights with Cryptocurrencies:

Safety and Security

Firstly paying in cryptocurrencies is known to be safe and secure as it’s much harder to track them than regular fiat currency payments. This is because the levels of encryption mean that even though every transaction made with crypto is detectable, they can never be connected with a personal identity. This is almost like the anonymity of cash payments. Transactions are recorded permanently on the blockchain, making them tamper-proof and auditable- this reduces the risk of fraud compared to traditional methods. Additionally, crypto wallets often have strong encryption and require unique passwords.

Variety of Cryptocurrencies

The is also a wide range of cryptocurrencies available such as  Bitcoin (BTC)Ethereum (ETH)Litecoin (LTC)DashRipple (XRP)Digibyte (DGB)Tether (USDT), XMoney's native token, UTK or CRO which is’s native token. It can also be used to purchase any flight. You can buy your plane tickets using cryptocurrency from over 600 available airlines to book with Alternative Airlines. These include all of the largest airlines, such as Emirates, Singapore Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Qantas, and Lufthansa, as well as smaller, domestic and regional carriers.
