How it started

It all started with a dinner conversation between two men. Alfred Moesker, one of the owners of the Cardano Boutique Hotel Ginebra, had been a long-time fan of the Cardano project. In fact, he had attended the very first Input Output summit. At the summit, he had dinner with Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano. 

During their conversation, Alfred mentioned that he was considering converting his hotel into a Cardano-themed hotel. Hoskinson replied, “Oh, sure.” And with that, the Cardano Boutique Hotel Ginebra was born. Since 2017, the hotel has been a popular destination for Cardano fans from all over the world. 

Thanks to its unique theme and commitment to supporting the Cardano community, the Cardano Boutique Hotel Ginebra has become an important part of the Cardano ecosystem.

How does it help the Cardano ecosystem?

As the first business in the world to allow customers to pay with ADA, the Cardano Boutique Hotel Ginebra plays a key role in supporting the Cardano ecosystem. In addition to providing a place for travellers to stay, the hotel is also home to several community-based projects, including the Cardano Hotel Podcast and Club Cardano.

The hotel’s team believes strongly in Cardano’s potential and is committed to supporting its development through initiatives such as Club Cardano and the Cardano Artist Corner. By providing a space for artists to showcase their Cardano-inspired work and offering NFT auctions, the hotel is helping to drive the adoption of Cardano, a.k.a. the “Ethereum Killer,” and its associated technologies.

You can find more information about all the community-based projects they run on the Cardano Hubs website. By promoting these projects, the ADA Hotel is helping to raise awareness of the Cardano ecosystem and its potential benefits.
