What is Airbnb? What is GOiN?
According to Airbnb, they provide “a trusted community marketplace for people to list, discover, and book unique accommodations around the world ….”. Airbnb are listing hosts properties like single rooms, a suite of rooms, apartments, and all that. It's free to create a listing, and hosts decide how much to charge per night, per week or per month. Each listing allows hosts to promote properties through titles, descriptions, photographs with captions and a user profile where potential guests can get to know a bit about the hosts. Travelers (or "guests") search the available database of properties by entering details about when and where they'd like to travel.
Similar to Airbnb, GOiN is the mobile ticketing platform which is listing ocreators' projects like concerts, stand-up comedy shows, public conferences or courses, subscriptions and others the same. The organizers can do the same to promote the projects as the host are promoting the properties on Airbnb. Also, the creators can list small or big projects, without any limit.
The explorers (or “events consumers”) search available events using a versatile mobile app (GOiN Explorer) by choosing to get results arround current location during them walks or chosing any location they’ll visit in the future.
How it Works
The explorers need to create an “anonnymous” account (only the email is requested, expecially for transaction communincation). Having an active account, the explorers will use GOiN Explorer to find desired events and, in contrast to Airbnb, Eventbrite or Booking, they will not pay any fee to GOiN for the tickets they’ll buy (they will only pay the ticket price setted by the events' creators). Once a explorers pays and the payment transaction is confirmed, they’ll get the goods into GOiN Explorer and can share the goods to others (think that somebody could buy more tickets and need to send to a friend; note that GOiN Explorer facilitate this for free).
On the other hand, GOiN will not get any fees from creators for them projects or for the tickets/goods they are selling through the GOiN platform. With one GOiN account, the user can create projects or to explore the world.
GOiN special advantages

Swain County Schools in North Carolina says, "Airbnb has fantastic listings, fair prices and their staff are very eager to help and easy to reach by phone or email." Richard adds, "We have booked three different places through Airbnb, and so far I've been happy with their service and ease of [using the] website." For all of this, the travellers and the hosts are paying a fee to Airbnb.
