Our Goals

Our primary goal is to positively disrupt the existing market for tourism based Experiences by providing a decentralized experiences booking capability. The DApp will offer a marketplace of peer-to-peer Experiences, powered by Origin Protocol.

Our secondary goal  is to support and develop local communities, farmers, producers and craftsmen by putting back control in their hands.

What is the GAST token?

The Gastronomie token (GAST) powers the platform’s payment system, enabling a decentralised, trustless service, a bridge between fiat and a variety of cryptocurrencies, a powerful rewards system to encourage network effects, and incentivize user-curation and user-arbitration.

Our token is accepted for payment by all participants of the platform. Guests receive a reward for the purchase of experiences and with these tokens, guests can pay for new experiences and local products.

For Guests

  • Connect and pay for experiences
  • Get 5% GAST reward on each transaction
  • Curate and verify existing and new providers

For Hosts

  • Freely advertise experiences to a micro-local & global marketplace
  • Add accommodation if available
  • True meritocracy — the best hosts get the most exposure

Listings will be created using The Gastronomie DApp

The Gastronomie client / server infrastructure already exists and is fully functional. The team recognise that decentralization is key for scalability and adoption of cryptocurrency, so have built a decentralized roadmap.

Critical transactional data such as pricing and availability will be stored directly on the Ethereum blockchain. Other metadata such as experiences descriptions, images, reputation, and reviews will be stored on the Interplanetary File System (IPFS) and cryptographically linked to a smart contract.
