Platform properties that need more STAY than they have currently collected will require STAY from other sources to cover the difference for marketing packages. STAY will, of course, be won by hotels. If some don’t hit their goal, they are motivated not to fall short on marketing to avoid the risk of losing guests.
The complete independence of STAY from fiat currencies allows growth from the size of the guest and hotel pool directly. The math function behind STAY causes the guest-issued STAY to reduce as the user pool grows, similar to mining difficulty. The STAY needed by hotels for marketing decreases in proportion on the other side of the market.
The level of service for marketing packages remains the same. As a result, the actual utility per STAY increases over time proportionately with the growingg amount of bookings. The cost of marketing decreases in terms of STAY needed as the STAY issued increases due to the reduced multiplier.
The mathematics behind STAY are complex, but not compared to the complicated algorithms that run current cryptocurrencies. STAY has implemented these same concepts, but bases them on the variables against real-world market conditions. This allows for growth of the platform against a fixed token supply. STAY will be automatically calculated for hotels and guests. The converted value, in a preferred fiat currency, can be displayed next to the STAY total for ease of spending. AIRSTAYZ™ will integrate a simple API that will pull the exchange price average to display a fiat total. The value, or utility of STAY is not affected by fiat factors, but this display promotes ease of use.

Small Business Travelers
Small businesses rely on client contact to build loyal relationships. In order to get in front of those clients they need to be savvy about maximizing their travel budget. STAY directly benefits these travelers on multiple levels.
AIRSTAYZ™ helps small business travelers earn STAY for every booking to directly cut costs on their trips. The STAY provides true benefits instead of outdated rewards programs that don’t have a lot of redeemable value. The AIRSTAYZ™ platform is designed to allow hotels to charge lower rates because their guest acquisition cost is reduced by paying lower commissions for bookings. Small business travelers are often forced to book cheaper flights at odd departure times. As a result, they are exhausted when arriving at their hotel. The last thing they want to do is deal with a lengthy check-in and a potentially rude hotel employee working late at night. The AIRSTAYZ™ app allows them to skip the desk™ through the use of Openkey technology. They take several trips every year, which it allows them to accumulate a significant amount of STAY. This STAY can be utilized for discounts on transportation, food, and other necessities to help extend their travel budget even further. They can now see clients more often, or spend extra trips acquiring new clients with more budget to work with.
Corporations have much larger budgets than small businesses, but they still need to control their costs. With more clients to see, they have significantly more employees traveling.
AIRSTAYZ™ helps corporate travelers earn STAY for every booking which allows for a large accumulation based on the tremendous volume of travel. The STAY provides true benefits instead of outdated rewards programs that don’t have a lot of redeemable value. Using STAY to purchase transportation, dining, and other amenities can allow corporations to reduce the daily per diem needed by their employees. Saving tremendous costs on company-wide travel allows corporations the ability to allocate more trips to seek out new business. Corporations have a lot of overhead expenditures that they have minimal control over. AIRSTAYZ™ gives them the opportunity to add profit to their bottom line by reducing their travel budget. STAY literally converts business travel spending, a massive line item, into a passive investment into the growth of the platform by retaining a portion of the earned STAY.
