Blockchain-based ticketing firm Aventus has partnered with new Las Vegas attraction Kind Heaven to supply tickets through its open-source Protocol solution.
Aventus Protocol is an open-source blockchain ticketing platform that will allow anyone to build powerful decentralised applications for the ticketing industry.
The programme, which is powered by blockchain, facilitates a supply chain that strengthens control and operations, and prevents counterfeiting.
Kind Heaven, which is the brainchild of Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell and is scheduled to open on the Las Vegas strip in 2019, will use the technology to sell tickets on the blockchain.
The release said: “Kind Heaven will combine leading edge technology and Hollywood style storytelling, taking visitors on an exotic journey that offers the best of Southeast Asian culture, music, food, fashion, exploration, mystery and spiritual enlightenment.”
Kind Heaven, a five-story venue with multiple musical stages, has projected annual sales of 1.5 million tickets by 2020. Its initiatives include taking contactless payments to the next level by offering a token-based payment ecosystem as its secure, fast, and decentralised solution. Farrell is developing the venue with Caesars Entertainment and Star Wars visual effects pioneer Ed Jones.
Earlier this month, BlocSide Sports became the first digital platform to trail the Aventus Protocol. BlocSide Sports leverages frictionless payments, mobile ticketing, augmented reality, and blockchain technology to improve fan engagement.
