Microsoft to acquire GitHub for $7.5 billion in stock

Last Monday, Microsoft has announced that it will acquire the software developer platform GitHub in a deal valued at 7.5$ billion in stock. Apparently, this decision has come as a consequence of the company reorganization to find an alternative to court developers after Microsoft saw its once-dominant Windows unit slip in market share in recent years. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella stated:

"Microsoft is a developer-first company, and by joining forces with GitHub we strengthen our commitment to developer freedom, openness and innovation. We recognize the community responsibility we take on with this agreement and will do our best work to empower every developer to build, innovate and solve the world's most pressing challenges."

Read our Guide About Trippki - The Evolution of Travel

Loyalty programmes in the travel industry suffer from a number of problems; from scale, because rewards are linked to single hotels or destinations and a lack of flexibility when reconciling how a customer wants to use their rewards. Moreover, they are expensive to run and in many ways redundant due to the imbalance created by middlemen. Booking platforms push the price as the key differentiator when buying to the detriment of hotels’ own brands and ultimately undermine the premise of customer relationship management tools.  

Trippki delivers the defining loyalty programme for the travel industry, using Blockchain technology. The TRIP token has been designed by travel industry specialists for the consumer to be rewarded as they travel, creating a win: win for operator and guest alike.
