👩🏽‍⚖️ Lens Protocol — Best Moderation Hack

Project Description

< Hi there >

I'm a frequent traveler and want an all-in-one platform that allows me to plan my trips from beginning to the end. As I travel and talk to people, I realise it would be super cool if there's an open platform where every thing is a building block - accommodation, tour, tickets, travel buddies, guides, drivers - and you can just plug and play these blocks into your own itinerary, or even have a planner do it for you.

< Pain points >

· Reviews and ratings scattered across different booking platforms

· Markups on local tours from international tour booking sites

· Accommodation listing websites take a sizeable chunk (~15%) from hostels/hotels operators. Sometimes

· It's a pain to track bookings from so many different sites

< How I feel web3 helps >

· Trackable and reliable reviews

· Portable reviews. Imagine someone with good reputation can just port his profile across thetravelneko, couchsurfing.com, airbnb.com, or display his profile on his own website to attract people looking for guides.

· Everything is now a lego block. Anyone can list anything from accmmodations (accommodation operators like hotels or airbnb), to tours (local tour guide, tour companies) etc. As a traveler, I can just schedule these into my travel planner within the platform easily.

· Imagine if all accommodation operators, tour guide, or driver can just embed a booking form that links directly to an open booking platform into their own websites

How it's Made

< Frontend >

· React + Typescript + HTML/CSS

< Backend >

· Lens Protocol for social networking features - reviews, comments, follows, publishing of travel guides

· Pinata + IPFS for pinning user profile photos

< Design >

· Polygon Finity Design

· Chakra UI

· and of course thetravelneko's internal design :)
