Secure, Transparent Ticketing is Possible—With or Without Blockchain

While blockchain technology has the potential to resolve many ever-present threats plaguing the event industry, you are not stuck with just one choice. There are many current technologies that make secure, transparent ticketing achievable. 

By transitioning to digital ticketing and offering event organizers and patrons a mobile ticketing solution, you can provide secure tickets that are traceable and transferrable. 

How Digital Improves Ticketing

Standardizing Ticketing Protocol

Ticketing protocol today is mainly seen as the structure of ticketing records. With a digital system, you can exchange customer's data and track tickets beyond that of a given provider, giving you a critical ability to manage the marketplace.

With digital tickets, knowledge truly is power. In providing the whole history of ticket transactions, event managers can identify ticket buyers, view all previous transactions, and see if a ticket has been resold and at what price. This reduces fraud and operational costs.

Secondary Market Regulation

Governments worldwide are scrutinizing the secondary ticket market. Digital tickets are the answer. Issuing digital tickets  regulates the ticket reselling process, sets the proper price for tickets, and places limits for resale. It also helps tighten control of scalpers.

Know Your Real Customer

Digital ticketing technology gives almost instantaneous identity verification to help ensure you know who your real attendees are. Which means event organizers will know exactly who’s attending, while collecting invaluable data analytics for future marketing purposes.

With digital tickets—blockchain or otherwise—you’ll know when it was sold, if and to whom it was resold, at what price, etc. You can verify and track a ticket’s origin, giving you a basis for dispute resolution and compliance.

Fraud Prevention

Historically, the secondary market consisted of street traders who bought tickets cheap outside a venue and resold them at a higher price to last-minute ticket buyers. Today, online ticket seller platforms dominate the market.

Blockchain forces digital ticketing, but there is nothing stopping the use of conventional technologies to accomplish many of the same things. One of the items mentioned for blockchain is data integrity, trust, and smart contracts. But a conventional ticketing provider can provide all the same things without blockchain - all we need to do is trust provider the same with the digital asset as we trust them now when using a paper ticket.

Whether companies will succeed in deploying blockchain technology to create products and services, consumers will trust and adopt remains to be seen. The demand for blockchain-based services is on the rise, and the technology is maturing and advancing at a rapid pace.
