What is 15toGO?

15toGO is the first decentralized app for group traveling where you MATCH with new people to travel with, BOOK hassle-free and TRAVEL for less.

Using the TGO token, we create a decentralized Marketplace and Ecosystem utilizing blockchain technology where Domestic Tour Operators can:

  • Offer their services directly to the Customers
  • Hire people from the community to help them organize and manage the trips
MATCH. BOOK. TRAVEL.
Match people to travel with
0% commission bookings from the Domestic Tour Operators
Be one of the first 15 on a trip and travel for less

The Problem

1.
Finding people to travel with and planning the trip hassle-free
2.
Unfair distribution of the value generated in group traveling
*It is not so easy to find the right people to travel with, right?
*Typically, the Outgoing Travel Agent takes 10 to 30% commission for being a legacy intermediary.
*The DTOs are the real heavy lifters in the industry. However, they do not get what they deserve.

The Solution

A social platform that offers the opportunity to meet friends and like-minded people to travel with on already organized trips where the more people come, the less you pay. Domestic Tour Operators can offer trips directly on the decentralized Marketplace, cutting out the middleman. This enables better margins for the DTOs and lower prices for the end customers.

The first 15 to join a trip take advantage of the ToGO Deal.
The first 15 to join a trip take advantage of the ToGO Deal. If more people join, e.g. the total number of travelers reaches 15, 20 ,25, 35, 45, 60, 80 (we call that ToGO Milestones), the first 15 people that have booked the ToGO Deal will receive TGO tokens and ultimately pay lower price.

For example: when reaching 10 travelers the original 15 will receive $120 bonus in TGO tokens, when reaching 25 - additional $140 bonus in TGO tokens, etc.

The future of group travel is here

We believe that Domestic Tour Operators should earn more and Travelers should pay less.

Why Blockchain?

1

We will reduce inefficient bureaucracy and red tape that come with running a large corporate centralized organization.

2

Our goal is the creation of an effective, transparent and cyber-secure data sharing platform.

3

We believe that an open global marketplace allowing direct peer-to-peer interaction will greatly reduce costs and increase value for end users.

4

Our plan is to create a self-governing, scalable organization that is open to all of the society.

5

When funds for a trip are in control of a smart contract, then we can guarantee the payment to the Tour Operator and therefore reduce friction and improve effectiveness.

6

On a later stage we will focus on extending the token economy towards creating a gig jobs marketplace. We will be using the same principles of public, permissionless, and open blockchain network.

7

The blockchain will help us create inviting Ecosystem for application developers and their imagination for further product development.

8

Through the blockchain we assure that all Tour Operators and Customers are in line with 15toGO values and Code of Conduct.

Governance Model

15toGO is an open and transparent decentralized platform and its governance model will be designed to facilitate group decision-making. The blockchain is ideal for setting up organizational rules and recording information in a way that can be later verified. By using smart contracts, we will create logical scripts that are executed on the blockchain itself (platform rules, processes and rights, mechanisms for approving new member agencies, rating systems, etc.). Our governance methods will consist of best practices, Code of Conduct, different incentives for benevolent arbiters on the platform and establishing mechanism for coordination between them.
We are building a community network that empowers both users and Domestic Tour Operators to participate. The main challenge is to filter the secure travel deals from scams published by agencies that are not legit and trustworthy.
We will personally evaluate each initial DTO’s request, looking into their reputation in the travel industry. This manual process will continue until we reach a membership of up to 150 DTOs. This approach will also help us create a balanced market without dominating players in the first stages of the project.
After the first stage, we will empower members of the community to approve new Tour Operators to the marketplace with transparent evaluation and voting mechanism. That is the only way to ensure open and secure decentralized network.

Our Mission

Empowering people from all over the planet to unite, collaborate and explore the world with friends.
Together we create more value for both Travelers and Tour Operators around the globe, connecting them in one transparent, secure and decentralized Ecosystem.

  1. We empower the local communities to show the traditional culture, wild nature and urban lifestyle of their homeland.
  2. We value real relationships, real people and real experiences.
  3. We understand the power of the mother nature and we want to preserve its beauty and grace.
We at 15toGO plan to create a special section on the app where trips with a cause will be listed. Community members will be able to vote for them, join the trips and donate their own labor or TGO tokens. We believe that we can rebuild the world we all want to live in using our own hands and hearts.

The Platform

15toGO deploys a user-friendly off-chain web interface and native mobile app (iOS & Android) to be used by the customers for interactions with the blockchain and smart contracts system of the project.

How 15toGO works for Domestic Tour Operators?

The booking will be done in an easy and intuitive way. Joining the platform is absolutely free. We will never take any bonuses or fees from the Domestic Tour Operators for signing up, posting a trip or generating bookings for their trips. And it will stay that way. Not paying commissions will increase the revenue of the DTOs and will give them an opportunity to improve the customer service they provide. All booking options will be available on the Marketplace backend - a booking engine specially developed for the needs of the Tour Operators.
We are excluding the middleman using the benefits of the blockchain technology and empowering the community to participate in the travel servicing process. The Domestic Tour Operators will be able to offer trips directly to the end customer on the platform. Reducing the cost for all participants, the DTOs can focus better on the client servicing. The DTOs will have the opportunity to look at the end customers’ preferences revealed from their personal accounts and the trips they have already booked. A chat functionality will be provided for every trip group, enabling the Tour Operators to engage with and get to know their customers. This will allow for the creation of curated itineraries and approach for each group.
We are reducing the cost for communication and management for the DTOs. The platform will offer options that will ease the organization of the whole process. Each tour leader will be able to set meeting points, send push notifications, chat with the whole group or with particular travelers, etc.
After the main Token Generation Event (TGE) stage, 5% of the value of a trip will be unlocked in tokens for the DTOs through the Proof of Travel system, as long as 15 or more people have joined the trip. We want to stimulate the DTOs to promote the trips using their own communication channels, attracting more users to the 15toGO platform.

Tokens can be used by the agency in exchange for services provided by community members who can help with different tasks, such as promotion and marketing, filming, customer support, guides, etc.
We know how hard is to grow a team and provide quality service to different groups and to sell on foreign markets at the same time. In the 15toGO decentralized Ecosystem everyone can benefit from the expertise and skills set of the community and pay for the services of its qualified members. That is the best way for DTOs to find and pay guides, influencers, marketing specialists, customer support, etc. using the TGO token.

FAQ

The name 15toGO consists of two main parts. The first part is “15”, this is considered as the threshold of a minimum number of participants that are needed to ensure an amazing group experience on a trip. Also with more participants, we can ensure better conditions for all parties involved. The second part, which is ”toGO” stands for the actual trip, the action part where the group has fun.
The TGO token will be the fuel of the whole ecosystem. It will be the link between all parties involved serving as the payment medium. With the help of the token we will be able to incentivize all of the participants on the platform and be true to the vision of the blockchain community of not needing a middleman to oversee the transactions.
As everything we do is law abiding and most countries have different laws, we will need some time to create it.
