Opportunities and challenges of Blockchain-Oriented systems in the tourism industry. (arXiv:2107.06732v1 [cs.CY])

The tourism industry is increasingly influenced by the evolution of
information and communication technologies (ICT), which are revolutionizing the
way people travel. In this work we want to nvestigate the use of innovative IT
technologies by DMOs (Destination Management Organizations), focusing on
blockchain technology, both from the point of view of research in the field,
and in the study of the most relevant software projects. In particular, we
intend to verify the benefits offered by these IT tools in the management and
monitoring of a destination, without forgetting the implications for the other
stakeholders involved. These technologies, in fact, can offer a wide range of
services that can be useful throughout the life cycle of the destination.
