The holiday rental giant Airbnb could be on track to add cryptocurrency payment options.


Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky revealed on his Twitter that paying for accommodations using cryptocurrencies is the number one request for 2022.


This comes after Chesky asked his Twitter followers for Airbnb-related suggestions on January 3. After many suggestions, he concluded that crypto payment leads the list, followed by clear pricing displays, a loyalty program for guests, updated cleaning fees, and improved customer service.


In addition, Chesky emphasizes that he has seen different token ideas, which means that Airbnb’s future digital currency payment lineup might not be limited to one or 2 assets.


Furthermore, he also noted that the company had processed $336 billion worth of payments since 2013.
