Blockparty launches to the public following its first use during Elements Lakewood Music Festival over Memorial Day Weekend

NEW YORK, May 30, 2018 Blockparty, a leader in blockchain-based live event ticketing, has launched its new ticketing platform, available now for download in the Apple App Store.

Founded by top executives from the live events and blockchain industries, Blockparty leverages the power of blockchain technology to eliminate common frustrations with the current ticket purchasing experience such as ticket fraud, lengthy event check-in protocols, and predatory secondary market resellers.

 

Shiv Madan, CEO of Blockparty, said “We want to rid the world of ticket bots and scalpers. We also want people to be able to easily transfer event tickets and safely purchase secondary tickets. We’re proud to be able to offer a blockchain platform that can do that, and we are incredibly excited for festival goers, music lovers, sports fans, and all live event attendees alike to experience what we’ve built as we roll out marquee event partnerships over the coming months.”

 

 

To improve the ticket purchasing process, Blockparty’s smart contracts eliminate bulk buying by bots and unfair re-pricing on secondary markets. Blockparty also eliminates the possibility of fraud and counterfeit tickets through secure, encrypted facial recognition and fingerprinting technology, ensuring that only the true owner of a ticket can access it while allowing user identity to remain completely anonymized. Blockparty also presents benefits for live event organizers, ticketing companies, venues, and performers by allowing event operators to easily deliver tickets directly to customers, set prices, rewards, and discounts, as well as earn a share of secondary ticket sales revenues.

 

Blockparty’s public launch follows its first use at Elements Lakewood Music Festival, which drew more than five thousand attendees over Memorial Day Weekend. Blockparty was used for ticketing of an exclusive event for hundreds of festival goers, which featured DJ sets and special performances by acrobats and dancers.
