Under US sanctions, Iran has taken some similar measures to attract more foreign tourists to increase its tourism income. The Iranian government announced a visa-free entry policy for Chinese tourists. But this is only unilateral, that is, Iranian tourists still need a visa to travel to China.

The current situation in Iran is so chaotic, who dares to go!

Although we dare not go to Iran, we have to go to other places. China's tourism industry has always been the main force of GDP consumption. In 2018, the number of domestic tourists reached 5.54 billion, domestic tourism revenue reached 5.12 trillion yuan, and the number of outbound tourists reached 161 million. The market scale is huge and the growth rate is considerable. ,

However, all kinds of tourist chaos have always existed. The golden period of tourism has always been a period of high incidence. Behind the surge in tourism consumption levels, there are many hidden problems that are difficult to solve. Blockchain tourism is in such a market environment.

During the Dragon Boat Festival this year, the Yunnan Provincial Administration for Industry and Commerce began to introduce blockchain technology to comprehensively rectify the tourism market, and initially tried to apply blockchain technology to tourism management. According to the incomplete statistics of the BlockData think tank BlockData, there are 15 global blockchain tourism platform projects, and there are 9 Chinese projects, accounting for 60%. Most of the projects are developed by blockchain startups. With the continuous improvement of the combination with blockchain technology, there is a broad prospect in the future to subvert the possibility of the traditional tourism industry.

However, there are so many pain points in the tourism industry, how to solve the blockchain?

First, the most well-known core feature of the blockchain is decentralization. The application of this concept in the tourism industry is to remove intermediate agents and reduce trading links, thereby greatly reducing transaction costs and improving transaction efficiency.

Second, the blockchain is called the value Internet, which is highly transparent and eliminates the dependence of trust. The disclosure of data information in the blockchain is conducive to ensuring the transparency of transaction costs and the authenticity of products and services.

Third, the autonomy of the blockchain is reflected in the tourism industry. Visitors can have multiple identities. Visitors are not only tourists, but also judges and managers. They can exchange local tourism and service information through blockchains, and Attractions and product sellers are rated for review.

Fourth, the blockchain has non-defective modification. In the past, hotels, travel agencies, etc. competed for customers and made false evaluations of seller services on the Internet platform, so that tourists could not obtain real information. The inevitable modification of the blockchain technology effectively avoids the spread of such false information, because as long as false information appears, the traceability can be traced on the chain, which will have an important impact on the credit and transaction of the person who publishes the false information.

5. Consumption point management. Using blockchain as the underlying technology, gamified tours are used to help visitors discover new attractions and guide visitors through the route. The system will encourage visitors to select attractions according to their preferences through point travel and redeem them according to their ratings.

The “2017 China Tourism Development Forum” first proposed the concept of China's tourism chain. The Chinese tourism chain is based on blockchain technology, giving full play to its advantageous characteristics, building a chain of tourism ecology, and combining different application scenarios of different tourism participants to provide standardization. Intelligent, big data support services. In the future, with the maturity of blockchain technology and the wider application in tourism, it will enable China's cultural tourism industry to transform and upgrade. Based on the attitude of technology to change life, Yuling Technology has been committed to promoting the deep application of blockchain technology, and has rich experience in blockchain development, providing professional technical support for the production and life of countless customers.
