Aventus is a start-up that is attempting to solve one of the biggest problems within the world of ticket sales, which is that tickets often go quickly, forcing fans to pay high prices on secondary markets and reward scalpers.
Aventus' B2B ticketing software is powered by blockchain technology and artificial intelligence, introducing what it calls "an open-source standard for the whole industry that lets ticketing companies and other vendors focus on their core value propositions."
With Aventus, tickets are given a unique ID that limits the use of a ticket to a single person. To ensure this, tickets on the site are linked to accounts, as well as images of a user's face, credit card and certified identification. Tickets may be sold after being purchased, but because Aventus is a blockchain-based system, transparency is possible as the buyer and seller are both able to see the original ticket's price.
