Future of Ticketing

Delivering a more engaging, transparent, memorable, and secure attendee experience

Capitalizing on the holistic event experience

The future of ticketing is delivering a better user experience; one that increases customer satisfaction, strengthens partner relationships, as well as allows for additional mechanisms for monetization.

There exists an opportunity to deliver tickets as tokens, non-fungible tokens; an opportunity advantageously timed to evolve the era of digital ticketing beyond transactional barcodes on PDF attachments into more secure and more engaging digital consumer assets.

While the benefits of leveraging a blockchain in event ticketing have started to be adopted throughout the industry, the emerging (consumer) popularity of NFTs, non-fungible tokens, has opened the possibilities to allowing the ticket itself to be a part of the consumer experience with increased benefits:

Before, During, & After a ticketed event are all critical and opportunistic moments in which their exists the potential to further leverage (and monetize) attendee engagement.

Digital-first Ticketing

One of the greatest consumer value propositions from the use of NFTs exist when the token can be complimented with a tangible asset; making the event industry one of the most ideal use-cases for the emerging technology. The future of event tickets delivered as non-fungible tokens allow the ticket holder an ingress mechanism to an event’s venue, but also now a transferable asset that can be leveraged for resale on the secondary market as well as digital memorabilia, giving the “ticket” value even years after the event has concluded.


A digital ticket on a distributed ledger also opens up the possibility of making the ticketed asset more open, sharable, and social — transforming a ticket into an engagement utility with built-in network and flywheel effects.

Full Transparency on Transactions

Event tickets as an NFT provide the inherent benefit of a transparent ledger of ownership; allowing the ticket owner to claim and display their ownership publicly as well as a utility for a more secure potential secondary resale transaction.

"Ownership" can now also expand out from a purely transactional utility to a social capability; paving the way for a new and exciting fan engagement features.
