Taiwan-based blockchain startup OwlTing has developed OwlStay, a blockchain-based solution to provide integrated tourism services, according to company founder and CEO Darren Wang.

OwlStay provides information on local history and culture particularly for in-depth tourism, Wang said.

OwlTing launched OwlNest, a blockchain-based solution for hotel management, and OwlTing Experiences, a solution to provide detailed information for tourism planning, in 2017, and OwlJourney, a solution for booking hotel rooms, in 2019, Wang noted.

By virtue of Ethereum databases, OwlNest excludes any possibility of tampering with room reservations to avoid over-booking.

OwlTing has also launched OwlChain blockchain-based food traceability system.
