Event Ticketing Antifraud Solution: Aventus
We started to see ticketing industry enter blockchain ecosystem for some time now. The plasuable feature of blockchain decentralization truely attracts industries where secondary sellers are getting huge commissions. Ticketing industry is one of them. There are a lot of problems with tickets being resold with huge inflated prices as well as black markets.
- Ticket resellers buying event tickets in bulk.
- Because of this process, public buyers can’t find a chance to buy tickets directly.
- Ticket resellers are than selling these tickets with highly inflated prices.
- This inflation only benefits resellers as both event organizers and singer/team doesn’t get profit or comission from this difference.
- The prices mostly cross over public buyer’s budget.
- Secondary and black markets have no legal control, thus no tax.
As seen above, current situation in ticket market affects both event organizers and public buyers. Meanwhile, it only benefits ticket resellers. With Aventus protocol, whole ticket selling process will completely be decentralized and will solve many of these problems. To give you an idea of how this process works, you can check how $2,500 worth of tickets have been sold for over $150,000 for Mayweather – McGregor fight. Ticket resellers bought all the tickets before even public could access them. The results were a good example of the problem Aventus will solve.

Aventus will be a decentralized protocol where people can buy tickets directly from event organizers and secondary markets. Secondary prices will be limited by even organizers so the inflation will be controlled. This will assure that people won’t get scammed buy highly inflated secondary market prices. Also, both event organizer and the performer will get commissions from the secondary market sales. Secondary market sellers will be tracked with the help of transparency of blockchain technology. So with these features, everyone will win and fraudulent profits of resellers will be drastically reduce.
