Our weekly tech round-up from the world of ticketing and associated industries…
Rev3al, a provider of digital anti-counterfeiting, copyright protection and cybersecurity technology, has ventured into the world of NFT (non-fungible tokens) ticketing.
The platform hopes to combat different ticket scams, from selling counterfeits to stolen tickets. Scam artists traditionally pose as genuine online sellers or through classified ads, advertising cheap tickets or access to sold-out events.
Rev3al technology aims to protect creators, brands, IP owners and collectors through the blockchain. Buyers and sellers are also protected within Rev3al’s ecosystem, which assures trademarks, authentic designs and NFT ticket holders.
Rev3al leverages decentralisation to allow users to preserve the digital license to their tickets, making it difficult for fraudsters to sell their tickets to anyone else.
