ODX PARTNERS WITH E-COMMERCE LEADERS TO DELIVER FREE INTERNET ACCESS
Over 50 Brands Already on Board Including Popular Travel Resource, Booking.com
ODX Pte. Ltd (ODX) today unveiled an extensive list of partners that will debut on its blockchain-based data marketplace. Among the premier group is Booking.com, one of the largest e-commerce travel companies in the world with over 29 million reported listings, covering more than 140,000 locations across 230 countries and territories.
“Data-free access is a critical advantage in emerging markets,” said Nix Nolledo, ODX Founder and CEO. “Your app becomes the default choice most of the time.”
Many consumers in emerging markets are offline much of the time. Mobile data is expensive, with most users only online five out of every 30 days.
“We are removing the most significant point of friction to our partners’ apps, no internet access,” continued Nolledo. “When that happens, customers use apps longer and more often. More time online leads to higher revenue.”

● Alba Swimwear, Bayo, Glamourbox (Pixi, Pop Beauty, Eye of Horus, Ofra), HTP Clothing, La Vie, Love by Bayo, Me&U, Salt Swim, StyleGenie, The Skincare Curator, Unica Hija, Viseversa, Woomen Beauty, Woomen Shop, Woomen Workshop
