Event goers will have access to next generation virtual experiences including true digital twins and shared immersive spaces including event venues.

“Offering built-in campaign creation and a referral system for ticket issuers will allow influencers, fans and gig workers the ability to receive instant micropayments of Bitcoin for helping to spread the word.” Said Gregory Ward, Chief Development Officer at Smartledger. “TicketMint will offer new ways for ticket issuers to promote their events and engage their fans including exclusively minted, redeemable and collectable NFT tickets for real-world and virtual events.”
Collectable NFT Tickets
For years the event industry has been plagued by ticketing fraud, ticket gouging from third parties, lack of transparency and stagnant innovation. TicketMint, brings the two worlds of ticketing and blockchain NFT’s seamlessly together, empowering artists, venues, and management, massively reducing chargebacks, mitigating fraud, and enhancing attendee experiences.
“Until recently, it hasn’t been economically feasible to use NFT’s or blockchain for real-world utility due to network congestion and high transaction fees. BBy utilizing a stable, secure, scalable, and sustainable public blockchain, with tokenization, micropayments, smart-contracts, and meta-infused NFTs, a whole world of new capabilities and efficiencies are now available. Together, with our strategic partnerships with Omniscape XR, Epik, and Tonicpow, we are thrilled to see the incredible innovations to enhance user experiences and reduce fraud” said Bryan Daugherty, Co-Founder, Chairman and Technical Advisor of SmartLedger.
The top ten companies in the ticketing industry control more than 50% of a $7.2 Billion dollar ticketing market and have offered very little towards innovation. TicketMint seeks to revolutionize event management and attendee experience, for both the real world and the Metaverse.
