Initial idea The perfect melting pot: The travel industry is too fragmented, blockchain applications are rising, people are looking for more authentic travel experiences
PoT Development starts The objective was to find and test different technical solutions (Proof of Technology)
Hybrid platform pivot Following the cryptokitties impact on Ethereum, we decided not to rely completely on the Blockchain and steer development towards an even more hybrid architecture
MVP development starts After the PoT was complete, we started developing our MVP with a much nicer UI, the objective was to demonstrate searching trips and services through voice and deploying services as smart contracts
MVP Release + Production development starts The beta version was working as expected and we started migrating towards a more robust and scalable architecture. We decided to focus on the centralized part of our xApp and push the decentralized part to after our ICO
Partners Outreach We have reached a development stage that allows us to start reaching out to partners. We already got some good feedback and are undergoing partnership discussions
Trip Creators feedback loop We have reached out to several trip creators (influencers, guide books, etc.) and have already incorporated a lot of their feedback in our product
Production launch: Please.com & Please.bot Our first production-ready products are our marketplace and our chatbot. We are now able to start gathering people to create many trips on our platform.
PreICO The aim of the PreICO is to give us a head start to work on the decentralized parts of our platform, namely our Blockchain protocol
Online Advertising Campaigns We will have enough trips to start the online advertising campaigns to bring travelers on our platform just in time for the 1st summer booking rush happening just after christmas
ICO Our ICO acts as our first funding round to accomplish our vision to build and promote the first user-friendly travel platform to bridge the gap between centralized and decentralized services
March 2019 Production launch: "Trips mobile app" We will launch our mobile app with an innovative UI to find and book trips quickly and easily on the go
Production launch: "Decentralized services on Ethereum" After optimising and auditing our smart contracts, we'll be ready to launch our first decentralized features in a production environment. Auditor will be selected by a Please Assembly vote.
Production launch: "Decentralized services on 2nd blockchain" After optimising our infrastructure and developing our second set of smart contracts, we'll be ready to bring our second selected blockchain in our production environment
Marketing Campaign: "Expansion in key cities" One year after our initial launch, we will know a lot about our users. Our infrastructure and features will be optimized to attract a new massive influx of travelers, trip creators, and service providers.
