Utilising Ethereum-based blockchain, Blocktix provides a simple and secure solution to distribute counterfeit-proof event tickets as well as facilitate trustless p2p transfers of ownership.

The smart contracts are provably secure and undergo rigorous external security auditing.

payment and fees

TIX TOKENS

Our fees are designed to eliminate spam, incentivize token holders and reduce ticket scalping

Blocktix fees compensate token holders participating in the event/advertising verification process, to discourage for-profit ticket trading (scalping) on the P2P exchange, and to incentivise mobile application users to view event advertisements. There should be no expectation of profit from TIX token ownership or from the Blocktix system.

The Blocktix platform will require TIX Tokens to be used as a system access fee as well as to introduce new events to the event feed. TIX tokens will also be required to place in-application advertising. TIX and/or ETH tokens will be necessary to facilitate ticket purchases and P2P transfers. The hosting, transfer and marketing fees will be distributed to TIX token holders who participate in the event/advertisment verification process which will be available to all TIX holders on the platform

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions.

What is the Blocktix system?
The Blocktix System is a platform that replaces the current fragmented markets of event ticket distribution, ticket transfer and event promotion. Blocktix is a single system for all services and provides a low overhead for distributors and promoters, freeing up money otherwise wasted in inefficient market-based systems.
Why is there a need for Blocktix?
Event hosting is an expansive and growing market, yet much like the financial industry, it suffers from constant, systemic challenges regarding fraud prevention, transfers of ownership and intermediary cost. Event hosts use a series of costly, legacy services to provide a solution for these challenges.
  • Ticket distribution services (Ticketmaster, Eventbrite) are used to simplify the ticketing process and to protect against fraud. The associated surcharge for these distribution services can be up to 15% of the ticket value.
  • Intermediary services such as Stubhub are used in the p2p secondary market to combat fraud and counterfeiting losses. Industry wide, fraud losses exceed $1 billion annually. Many P2P transfer intermediaries charge excessive fees to both buyers and sellers.
  • A variety of advertising mediums and services are used to sell available tickets to an event. Advertising costs for an event regularly exceeds 20% of the event's overall budget. Utilizing Ethereum smart contracts, Blocktix offers a near perfect solution to many of the current challenges facing event hosting businesses.
How large is the market for Blocktix?
The recurring challenges in the event hosting industry provide a substantial opportunity for a system with the ability to resolve these issues to attract a significant share of hosted events. According to Meeting Professionals International, "The American meetings and events industry directly and indirectly supports 6.3 million jobs and generates almost $1 trillion a year in direct, indirect and induced spending. The industry’s direct $106 billion contribution to the U.S. GDP is greater than the amount generated by auto manufacturing ($78 billion)..."
Are there detailed plans for the Blocktix hosted events?
  • Blocktix will focus on primer artists and DJs popular with the 18-34 demographic.
  • The concerts will be held in venues near college campuses, capable of hosting 10,000 to 15,000 attendees, initially concentrated in California.
  • Most events will be festival style as popular with the 18-34 demographic.
  • The attendees will be required to purchase tickets through the Blocktix application, with ETH/ TIX as the only accepted methods of payment.
  • Budgets for the events will range from $650,000 - $900,000 depending on artists and venues.
  • With a $3million events budget from the crowdsale funding, Blocktix could host as many as 20 events adding 200,000-300,000 users to the Blocktix system (this will be determined by popularity of events). How will mainstream users learn crypto? An onboarding exchange portal will be developed
How will mainstream users learn crypto?
An onboarding exchange portal will be developed and targeted at new users of crypto. This portal will be simple, featureless, and directed at new users only. The portal will look and operate similar to an online bank account transfer. There will be a very small learning curve for any new user to understand how to acquire ETH and use it on Blocktix. In our testing, the learning curve takes less than one minute to acquire a satisfactory understanding of making a transaction on the Blocktix portal.
How will Blocktix benefit event hosting businesses and event attendees?
Blocktix leverages the efficiency of the Ethereum network to reduce fees paid by hosts and patrons by up to 90% from other ticketing systems. Due to the counterfeit-proof nature of the Blocktix blockchain based marketplace, a ticket's proof of ownership is easily verifiable, and even easier to transfer from one person to the next without the need of trusted intermediaries. Another benefit of Blocktix is the real-time accessibility for concertgoers to instantly obtain and sell tickets up to seconds before showtime.
Why will Blocktix succeed?
Crypto based, decentralized systems can offer drastic reductions in cost and improved efficiencies over centralized company systems. The main hurdle of a decentralized system is for the system to gain enough users to experience the benefits of decentralization. Drawing from our experience in the advertising and promotion business we developed a plan to bootstrap the system with tens/hundreds of thousands of active users. See our User Acquisition section for detail.
