Winding Tree, More Info on This Solid ICO

From the forward of the Winding Tree white paper: >The travel industry is dominated by a handful of companies which, through market power and industry politics, have created a highly-concentrated market. They are able to charge superior margins, cause double marginalization, and, in some cases, simply collect rent. Rent-collection and superior margins inflate the cost of supply, with consumers ultimately bearing the artificially increased costs. >The consolidated nature of the travel distribution platforms creates a situation where the intermediaries have no incentive to use new technologies.
