Created using Figma
We are building a protocol and a marketplace to promote decentralization and we are progressively bringing it to the masses through the travel industry. We are one of the very few Blockchain-friendly projects to be also grandma-friendly thanks to our xApp approach. Our architecture is very flexible, scalable and can be used by other projects wether they are centralized, decentralized or hybrid.

About Please Protocol

Please is a new generation travel platform with a unique approach that fundamentally changes the way people book their travel, saving them time and money, and giving them more control and a more customised experience, while opening the travel industry to the sharing and decentralized economies.

An entire trip, with all its accommodation, transportation, activities and meals can be planned, booked and paid for ahead of time, without the hours of agonizing research and scouring multiple websites. This allows the traveller to relax and enjoy their trip, because all the decisions are already made, and everything is already planned.

Please is a hybrid platform that supports both centralised and decentralised computing, allowing us to prosper in today’s centralised environment, and to transition seamlessly as the world moves to a fully decentralised model.

Please Protocol Roadmap

  • August 2017 Initial idea

  • The perfect melting pot: The travel industry is too fragmented, blockchain applications are rising, people are looking for more authentic travel experiences
  • September 2017 PoT Development starts

  • The objective was to find and test different technical solutions (Proof of Technology)
  • December 2017 Hybrid platform pivot

  • Following the cryptokitties impact on Ethereum, we decided not to rely completely on the Blockchain and steer development towards an even more hybrid architecture
  • March 2018 Beta version development starts

  • After the PoT was complete, we started developing our beta version with a much nicer UI, the objective was to demonstrate searching trips and services through voice and deploying services as smart contracts
  • Read More
  • Jun 2018 Production development starts

  • The beta version was working as expected and we started migrating towards a more robust and scalable architecture. We decided to focus on the centralized part of our xApp and push the decentralized part to after our ICO
  • October 2018 Production launch: Please.com & Please.bot

  • Our first production-ready products are our marketplace and our chatbot. We are now able to start gathering people to create many trips on our platform.
  • November 2018 Pre-ICO

  • The aim of the pre-ICO is to give us a head start to work on the decentralized parts of our platform, namely our Blockchain protocol
  • January 2019 ICO

  • Our ICO acts as our first funding round to accomplish our vision to build and promote the first user-friendly travel platform to bridge the gap between centralized and decentralized services

Please Protocol Interviews

Olivier Ducroux
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
As a full stack engineer, i've been involved on both backend and frontend development of our platform.
What do you think about idea?
A lot of disruption is yet to happen in the travel industry. The xApp approach is a great step toward bringing decentralization to the mass.
Facundo Matteo
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
I am a Full Stack Developer. I have been working on the frontend, focused on making the best experience for users when creating and booking trips.
What do you think about idea?
The idea is what brought me to the project. Blockchain is a revolutionary technology, but it's not massively adopted at the moment. That's why I believe that the xApp approach is ideal.
About the product, I think that anyone who travels will appreciate the possibility to book a complete trip at once.
Vibhor Jain
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
As the Operations Manager, I work on the daily operations at Please, and work closely with the marketing team on partnerships, community management, and the marketing strategy.
What do you think about idea?
Being a blockchain enthusiast, I love the fact that our platform is built as an xApp, thereby making Please centralized and decentralized at the same time - centralized for the average consumer and decentralized for the decentralized.
Nicolas Girardot
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
I participated in the Proof Of concept development of the project with Solidity and React back in 2017. It felt really good to see this project grow in quality and features as we are now ready for launch !
What do you think about idea?
This Idea is a brilliant one, gathering all the parts of organizing a trip in one service is unique ! It will allow travellers to find places to sleep, eat, and meet people as well as day to day activities, all in one place !
Antoine Garcia
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
I participated in the POC development with Solidity and React and also developped the first version of the Messenger Bot back in 2017.
What do you think about idea?
We are opening blockchain to every users so everyone can benefit from decentralization in this industry
Genevieve Blin
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
Romain Barissat is one of the most visionary person I have ever met among the 200 senior executives I have advised and coached. My role has been for the past year to help him and the Please.com team translate ideas into actions and check every step leading to a real and strong organization.
What do you think about idea?
The more people increase their travelling experience the more they are looking for curated trips, quick and easy to book. Lonely Planet Is no more the traveler bible! As a traveler who has visited nearly 60 countries, I believe Please.com is The way to travel in the future. Forget the tourist routes, look for authentic places, stop spending hours and days on visitors websites, forums, TripAdvisor, Booking.com etc...
Who has heard of Aero ireland in Denmark, nosy boraha in Madagascar? Locals are ready to share their best spots, but today they have no platform to share this information. Please.com will be filling this gap and save the traveler’s time.
Romain Barissat
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
I am the CEO of Please.com. I have been working on this project for more than 1 year and my goal has always been to go live before we conduct an ICO so we don't ICO with just a white paper.
What do you think about idea?
Please.com will revolutionise how people book their travel online by saving them hours of research. Service Providers will save on costs from intermediaries thanks to smart contracts. All users of the platform will have their say in how we attribute rewards and which features are prioritised.
Vladimir Kokovic
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
Spearhead the technical development for a reliable platform to automate booking flows and provide better experiences for clients.
What do you think about idea?
We utilize blockchain the right way and educate users to benefit from decentralization when it comes to the travel industry.
Kristi Brown
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
I am the marketing director. I help with everything pertaining to marketing and visibility. I lead the team in making decisions regarding how we communicate our message and what we put out.
What do you think about idea?
I think that being able to end book end to end trips in a few minutes is needed in the space! I am excited not just to work on the project but to use the platform!
Sarper Horata
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
As the product manager, I am focused on the product's vision, overall quality & usability, as well as cooperation with both internal and external parties to ensure everything is working smoothly as planned.
What do you think about idea?
The main idea is solving the problem of building curated trips in minutes (instead of hours, according to Expedia's study) in a single platform. This is a serious problem to be solved for years on big market of 20 B USD.

I believe that creating a product based on this idea would solve the problem and applying it on multiple blockchains make system more transparent and robust; as well as being a leading product to be followed in the field.
Marcel Akiyama
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
As a product designer, my role is to help Please.com discover a product that is valuable, usable and feasible.
What do you think about idea?
The travel industry is one of the world’s largest industries with a global economic contribution (direct, indirect and induced) of over 7.6 trillion U.S. dollars.

Please.com is building a range of products to solve real problems in travel, such as helping travelers reduce the time spent in planning their trip from 30 hours to 1 minute, enabling services to use smart contracts and allowing users to pay with cryptocurrencies while earning rewards.
Jaydeep Solanki
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
I've been mostly focused on the backend development making sure that everything runs & scales as expected
What do you think about idea?
As a person who travels, I personally have faced the issue of spending hours planning where to stay, what places to visit & where to eat. Please.com is a one-stop solution for all that!
Combining it with the xApp approach, it'll be able to reach way more people than any Blockchain only project.
Florent Thurin
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
I am in charge of Strategic Partnerships, that means working closely with investors, customers and actors of the industry to provide an amazing platform and move slowly toward decentralization in the travel industry.
What do you think about idea?
What do you think about idea? Which idea? The fact that we can book an entire trip in 2minutes and 1 click? Or the fact that we can finally work with crypto? Or be rewarded to travel? I think its a great idea however it is no longer just an idea, it is a reality since we are live
Anupam Varshney
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
I work as a content marketing strategist and help execute marketing strategies for ICO side of things. I also maintain our company's public relations.
What do you think about idea?
I absolutely love the idea. It solves a problem and has a real-world use case. The idea of booking an entire trip on one platform sounds fantastic!
