As the world becomes increasingly digital, cryptocurrency is the next natural step in the evolution of money. Pi is the first digital currency for everyday people, representing a major step forward in the adoption of cryptocurrency worldwide.” –Pi Network
The Global Travel Industry 
The international travel and tourist sector was a substantial contributor to the world economy before the COVID-19 epidemic. The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) estimates that the direct contribution of the travel and tourism industry to the global GDP in 2019 was around $2.9 trillion, or roughly 3.3% of total GDP. The industry's contribution reached roughly 10.4% of the world's GDP in 2019 when taking into account all effects of the industry (direct, indirect, and induced). The industry supported 330 Million jobs all over the world representing 10% of total global employment (direct jobs and jobs indirectly supported by the travel industry. Although the Covid-19 Pandemic has changed the preferences and travelling patterns of travelers during the years 2020 to present (2023) still it remains that there is very high cash flow to the travelling industry.
Digital Transformation of The Travel Industry
It was in the 90’s that the travel industry begins to digitalize as online travel agencies (OTAs) allowing online bookings flights, hotels and travel-based services thru the web empowering the consumers access to more travel options and better pricing.
At present, the digitalization of the travel industry is shifting to the mobile applications. Mobile optimized websites are becoming the most used platform for travel purposes, allowing a vast array of services to be catered to travelers such as travel booking, searching for reviews, compare prices, and researching the destinations; under the comfort of their smartphones.Among the most recent advancements in the digitalization of the traveling industry is the inclusion of digital payment solutions. One of the limits of the current digital payments are the exchange currency differential losses. With the development of Pi Network and the availability of pi coins, exchanging money from a currency to another is now bypassed, for the first time in history, we can use a common currency among different countries.
These developments favored the formulation of ourcompany, Pitogo services, which aims to empower the pioneers to be able to use their mined pi for every possible need in the travelling journey. 
 Our Mission: Build a decentralized travel service platform, empowered by pioneers, Pitogo representatives, and travel service providers fully supporting and accepting the pi cryptocurrency, which allows a seamless experience of travelling, catering all the travelling needs using the comfort of a smartphonepowered by pi, the most widely distributed cryptocurrency.
 Our Vision: 
To develop a platform created and maintained by a community of pioneers aiming one goal of travelling with exclusively using pi, the most widely distributed cryptocurrency.
