Booking Holdings and Uber are among travel and transportation companies backing a new cryptocurrency from Facebook. Bloomberg

Skift Take: Booking Holdings wants to be an innovator and supporter of alternative payments systems given its presence in emerging markets, especially in Asia. So it is understandable that Booking would want to be a first mover in Facebook’s digital currency effort, regardless of how it eventually turns out.
