EventChain solves many of the problems with current event ticketing systems available today while providing the additional benefits of using a blockchain as the foundation. Both the EventChain system and its tokens (“EVC Tokens”) encourages everyone in the ecosystem, including all stake holders such as event managers of sport and concert events, party organizers, social clubs and ticket purchasers to sell or buy SmartTickets using EVC Tokens and other traditional payment methods.
EventChain’s mission is to:
1. Solve a long list of issues for event ticket sales by providing the advanced functionality of SmartTickets using EVC Tokens. See following sections for details.
2. Provide holders of EVC Tokens with benefits such as early bird tickets, priority seating and discounted pricing.
3. Foster the utilization of EVC Tokens inside the EventChain SmartTicketing platform. Although EventChain will utilize various payment gateways that accept EVC Tokens to purchase products and services from over 205,000 vendors across 182 different countries, all significant ticketing benefits will be available only to those using EVC Tokens.
ICO start date: 2017-10-14
