There’s a lot of discussion about blockchain* and its potential impact on global business transactions. But is there substance behind all the hype? Does blockchain provide the missing solutions to so many of the biggest challenges in ticketing? Will it herald the end of Black Market and counterfeit tickets? Could it close out unwanted reselling?
Lifting the lid on blockchain and its potential for ticketing, we are delighted to welcome to the #TTF17 line-up Vincent Larchet, CTO, SecuTix SA.
In Dublin, Vincent will explore the potential future impact of blockchain in the ticketing industry, with reference to user cases. He’ll also be sharing where SecuTix as a ticketing technology provider is integrating blockchain into its roadmap.
Vincent Larchet is Chief Technology Officer at SecuTix, a SaaS Ticketing Engagement Platform that helps organisations boost ticket sales and enhance audiences’ experience before, during and after events. Heading the “Innovations and Architecture” department, Vincent is defining the company’s innovation directions and technology partnerships, focusing on creating a marketplace of third-party digital applications that build on the open nature of the SecuTix ticketing platform. Vincent is also looking at several technology initiatives – one such stream being the Blockchain.
Get the heads-up on blockchain from one of the industry’s key players – only at #TTF17. See you there!
*Blockchain is a distributed database that maintains a continuously-growing list of records called blocks. Each block contains a timestamp and a link to a previous block. The data in a block cannot be altered retrospectively. So, in effect, blockchain is a decentralised digital ledger that records transactions (i.e. tickets) on thousands of computers globally, and such transactions cannot be altered retrospectively.
