Transforming Travel

Please Protocol brings decentralization to the masses using xApp approach. The protocol allows service providers to publish their services on the Blockchain using smart contracts. The hybrid nature of the protocol makes the architecture very flexible, scalable and be used by other projects whether they are centralized, decentralized or hybrid. Please.com marketplace offers a fresh approach to book travels. Instead of spending hours browsing the internet to find a personalized trip, travelers can easily book, create and customize their trips across traditional, decentralized and sharing economies. Voice is gradually taking over our screens. Consumers are increasingly using their voice assistants at home and are looking for new ways to save time. Please.com’s bot is cross-platform and will guide travelers throughout their journey.

March 2018

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.

Sep 2018

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.

November 2018

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.

December 2018

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.

February 2019

Exchanges listing Following the end of our token sale, PLS will be listed on exchanges.

April 2019
