Digital disruption: Airbnb covers 99% of the world; Starwood covers ~50%

Yet another example of digital disruption, this time from the hotel industry. Fast Company has an article about AirBNB (“the room sharing company”) that has some interesting data, including the fact that AirBNB now is available in 99% of the countries world wide. Compare this to its nearest rivals (Intercontinental and Starwood which only covers ~50%).

airbnb dominates

In addition, AirBNB expects to offer around 1M listings by the end of 2014. Wow.
