Open protocol for decentralized reservation

Join Telegram

Enpowering decentralized bookings

A public inventory and an open protocol lowers operational costs while allowing a fair competition between a higher number of market participants.

A scalable protocol

All platforms implementing the BTU protocol would benefit from a hybrid approach combining an on-chain smart contract and off-chain software components, providing more scalability.

Fully standardized

The Booking Token Unit (BTU) protocol involves an ERC-20 token (BTU token) working conjunction with our ERC-808 standard booking smart contract.


Booking Token Unit (BTU) Protocol is an open decentralized ERC-808 smart contract-based booking protocol which facilitates the reservation process between resource providers, bookers, and booking applications.

It incentivizes a new wave of developers to deliver innovative and open services, leading to better-functioning markets.
