Blockchain is an ideal solution for event marketplaces, and one that brings much needed transparency to this industry. Currently, the industry is plagued with multiple issues and risks; including forged tickets, unethical buying, lack of clarity from third-party sellers, ticket usage- the list goes on.
Using blockchain technology in event management has practical applications. For example, blockchain can limit the access of bots and scalpers trying to hoard multiple tickets for reselling. It can also increase the security of platforms towards data breaches, and even maximise users’ privacy. Additionally, event planners can gain more control over the market as well as increased efficiency in handling high demands.
PhoenixDAO Events Marketplace is a decentralized application built on blockchain technology to address unpleasant attributes of the event industry by bringing trust and transparency. Their goal is to combat the issues plaguing the industry for a smoother, more efficient experience for participants and organizers.
