legends creates a new form of social currency by transforming real-time data into the user’s unique “travel DNA”, allowing users to visualize their travel history, create recommendations, communicate and transact on a single platform.
NEW YORK, June 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Legends, a new social network at the intersection of Web 2 and Web 3 that instantly translates user travel data into NFT, announces its launch. It comes at a time when increasingly blurred lines between work, life and travel have made location independence the new normal. Leveraging the best of technology, community and social media, Legends is the first platform to bring power back to the traveler and turn their unique data into NFTs that can be used as a new form of social currency.
“The future of social media is category-centric and creator-centric. Traditional travel platforms are fragmented, built for suppliers, not for today’s travelers,” he says. Stephanie Daniel, co-founder and CEO of Legends. “We are redefining travel for modern consumers by bringing together the best technologies and community to make travel a tangible, accessible and monetizable asset. The time has come”.
How it works:
Unlike other travel technologies or social apps that address one or more elements of a user’s journey, Legends is an end-to-end solution where users can visualize their travel history, create recommendations, communicate and transact on a single platform. Users can now unlock their lifelong journey and turn every photo they take into beautiful 3D visualization from their unique travel DNA, drawn from their own experiences of the globe – from the places, languages, cultures, climates and cuisines they encountered.
This travel DNA provides the foundation for automatic sharing, so users can save their favorite places and instantly share them with friends without having to manually download lists or remember all the places they’ve visited before. The generated unique travel DNA can be used to generate smarter recommendations based on previous travel history and behavior and help connect with other travelers. Ultimately, you can book places suggested by people you trust and earn when friends book your places. It all happens in an immersive and socially interactive map-based interface. This in-app travel DNA becomes a dynamic, user-generated NFT that serves as a user membership to an exclusive community and provides digital and physical access to special offers with Legends partners.
“Everyone is trying to predict the future of travel, but we believe that those who can integrate the best of Web 2 and Web 3, creating a passionate, category-specific user base, will ultimately change the industry,” he says. Stuart GreifHead of Innovation and Strategy, Forbes Travel Guide.
Legends has received funding from several investors including Trip Ventures, a fund that invests in the future of travel technology. “We believe that Stephanie and…
