On our map, there are Spots which are recommended to visit. Spots can be sightseeing sites, restaurants, and places where users can have special experiences, etc.
Users can earn tokens from Spots in two ways:
- Visiting the existing Spots for at least 1 minute on the trip;
- Registering new Spots or sharing information about their passing Spots.
If there are any spots which are not added to the map but users think might be worth seeing, they can register them as new spots on the app. xtrip team will verify and if the new spots are accepted, users will get XTR or GXT as a bonus.
When checking in at an existing spot for at least 1 minute, users get rewarded with a bonus number of tokens that are added to the total XTR earned after finishing the trip. This is called Spot bonus.
However, there are some types of spots that do not help to earn tokens when passing or registering. Also, the number of tokens given varies to the spot types. Users can find details in the list of spot types below. (Please note "Earn token by passing" and spot bonus might be changed in future.)
Popular spots are registered locations on xtrip that have been checked in by at least 50 users, rated at 4.0/5.0 or higher, and have a minimum of 5 reviews.
Users who check in at a popular location on the xtrip app will receive a minimum of 5 bonus tokens for their trip. As a result, the user who first registered the spot will receive 50% of the bonus tokens. The remaining 50% will be divided to the number of users who have contributed with their spot reviews and photos.
When a user checks in a popular spot, the user receives 5 bonus tokens. Based on that, the user who first registered the spot will receive 2.5 bonus tokens. If there are 5 users who have left reviews and photos about the spot, they will be entitled to 50% of the bonus tokens (which means 2.5 tokens), and hence receive 0.5 bonus tokens each.
To follow the idea of encouraging people to travel and explore new things, xtrip spot counting will be changed.
For every month, if users visit the same spot with the following frequency:
- From 1 to 10 times: their earned amount of tokens will be counted as normal
- From 11 to 20 times: their earned amount of tokens will be counted with a coefficient of 0.5 and no bonus tokens awarded.
- More than 21 times: their earned amount of tokens will be counted with a coefficient of 0.25 and no bonus tokens awarded.
Notice: The counting of spot check-ins will be reset in the beginning of the following month.
