What is TravelCoin®?
TravelCoin is a crowdsourced travel ecosystem with a blockchain-based community that will seamlessly unite travellers with travel services worldwide. TravelCoin is the newest, and most innovative, cryptocurrency to ever be introduced. It is offered to the ordinary subscriber, with a $500 cap, to allow more people to gain the advantages of participating in an ICO. The funds raised by this ICO will be used to develop and create tools to make traveling easier and more humane.
What is the TravelCoin Foundation?
TravelCoin Foundation (TCF) is a not-for-profit community interest company (CIC) registered in the United Kingdom. The objectives of the Company are to carry on activities which benefit the community and, in particular, to develop software and commission research on how Digital Currency and Blockchain technology can improve the travel experience for travellers while impacting the global economy as a whole. You can read more about the TravelCoin Foundation at www.TravelCoin.org.
What is the start and end date of the TravelCoin ICO?
The TravelCoin ICO opens September 3, 2017 and will end after 26 thirty-day tranches or after the distribution of all 2 Billion Initial Circulating Supply of TravelCoin. To become a Subscriber of TravelCoin go to www.TravelCoin.org and click the “Become a Subscriber” button for more information.
Can I mine TravelCoins?
Unlike proof-of-work blockchains such as Bitcoin, there is no mining of TravelCoins, instead Subscribers may acquire TravelCoins through subscription and then by participating in the Stake Distribution Reward System (SDRS). Subscribers may also trade on the Secondary Market to receive more TravelCoin.
What is the Stake Reward Distribution System (SRDS)?
Total supply of TravelCoin is set at 21 Billion which cannot be changed. 2 Billion TravelCoins have been allocated to the ICO. After that the coin creation will be done via the Stake Reward Distribution System (SRDS) mechanism. SRDS is set at a maximum 30% of the original 2 Billion TravelCoins per year. Which means every year a maximum 600 Million TravelCoins will be created. This will bring an inflationary effect which is good for the TravelCoin economy. It will take a minimum of 33 years to distribute all TravelCoins. This mean by 2050, 21 billion TravelCoins will be in circulation.
What is the Secondary Market?
A Secondary Market, which is an internal trading platform, will allow for the trading of TravelCoin amongst the Subscriber-only community of TravelCoin holders. This Secondary Market is one of the first projects to be developed after the launch of the ICO and has many benefits to TravelCoin Subscribers. During the ICO period, when TravelCoins are not available on the open markets, instead of waiting until the end of the ICO to start trading, TravelCoin Subscribers can trade their TravelCoins amongst themselves. Those Subscribers who want to acquire more TravelCoins can use this Secondary Market and buy up to ten times their initial purchase of TravelCoins from other Subscribers who want to sell.
What is an ICO?
An ICO is, simply, Crowdfunding. This centuries-old method helps support projects to get off the ground. Traditionally family or friends would offer their help in the shape of loans or support to help accomplish the new business ideas. In more recent years increased technology and the widespread use of the internet has taken crowdfunding to a whole new level. As per a report published by the University of Cambridge business school in 2015 it was estimated that over $34 billion was raised via this method.

What is the difference between an Individual, Corporate and Sweat Equity Subscriber?
An individual or a company can become a Subscriber free of cost. Subscribers may also subscribe for up to $500USD and receive TravelCoins.

TCF also partners with other organisations who wish to use TravelCoin for their incentives and reward programs.

Why is the subscription limit set to US $500?
Traditionally an ICO is funded by seasoned Subscribers with large purchasing power which limits the average persons ability to become part of an ICO. The TLC subscription limit has been placed in order to provide the opportunity for a wider community to participate in this ICO.
How many TravelCoins will be available?
The total supply of TravelCoin is set at 21 Billion which cannot be changed. The Initial Circulating Supply of 2 Billion TravelCoins have been allocated to the ICO.
