On Monday, Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky surveyed his 400,000 Twitter followers about what they anticipate from the platform in 2022.
According to the poll, the majority of respondents want to be able to rent an apartment using cryptocurrency. Some people also urged Airbnb to show prices clearly, introduce a guest loyalty program, and improve customer service.
Chesky also said that if digital currencies are implemented, they would not be restricted to a single or two assets. Visa, MasterCard, Apple Pay, Google Pay, and PayPal are presently accepted as payment options by Airbnb. Additionally, the CEO highlighted the company’s $336 billion in transaction volume since 2013.
No words are spared by Chesky when it comes to the potential of modern technology. In September, he told Fox Business that the business had had many requests about bitcoin payments. – However, he said that he could not make any announcements at this time.
We receive a lot of questions, and I have been getting them for years, but I do not have anything to say about it now.
He was questioned about his opinions on the future of cryptocurrencies and the metaverse during a November interview with Nilay Patel of The Verge. He mentioned that his business is monitoring this market closely.
