About the project

What are the problems to solve?

1. Travelers overpay up to 40% of hidden commissions for activities in the marketplaces. This happens because classical business models rely on multiple middlemans’ fees.
2. Buried authentic experiences under tourist traps and global brands. Millenial travelers are eager to dive into local cultures but for now it’s such a treasure to find.

What is the solution?

Imagine, that traveler instead of going to make a trivial picture with a Pisa tower is going 10 km away from the beaten path to meet local community that produces own cheese, wine, teaches you to make pasta and sing local songs.
Columbery is a “community first product”. We start by launching a blog platform that allows travelers to share stories about local gems and thus win the prizes.
The Second stage: We transfer those stories into the real experiences by finding local activity providers.
Marketplace offers to pay for activities in internal cryptocoin CLMB to stop losing money on the middleman.

What else does CLMB token do?

1. The main purpose of CLMB is to be unified traveling currency
2. Also token holders have access to premium activities and discounts.

How it works?

Blockchain technology allows us to become a first “Fintech product for traveling market”. Instead of 40% commissions traveler pays 12-15%. 

The Market Size

Travel activities market in EU, Asia and America is about $172 billion. Sharing economy growth annually is about 8%. 370M Millennials will be traveling worldwide by 2020.
