Luca De Giglio

Founder of Trips Community and Web3 Consultant

De Giglio

Luca in 2001 created an "Airbnb before Airbnb" lifestyle business 7 years before Airbnb and this funded his world travels for 10 years. He was a digital nomad and travel blogger before these terms were even invented. In 2013 he got involved in Bitcoin and in 2017 he finally saw opportunity in Ethereum's promise to allow the creation of Decentralised Autonomous Organizations (DAOs). He set up on a mission to ride the wave of the new internet, where value extracting OTAs business models will become obsolete in a few years. With Trips Community he wants to create a set of open protocols for internet which allows direct bookings and decentralised OTAs to build on top. Trips Community has launched the first NFT booking, and the first NFT hotel booking in the world in 2021. Luca is a Director of the Origin Protocol Foundation, a Silicon Valley startup at the forefront of NFTs and Web3. In 2022 he published a book on "The future of Bookings in Web3", in Italian. Luca is the host of podcast "Web3 in Travel", the first one to address the Web3 upgrade of travel. In 2022, Luca and Trips Community have organised the first "Web3 in Travel" conference in Porto, Portugal. Luca is a Web3 consultant specialising in Travel with his company
