Is blockchain the answer to the ticketing sector’s problems? It’s time to find out whether the hype is justified once and for all. And there’s no better place for it than Pollstar Live! 2019. 

A panel dubbed The Truth About Blockchain is going to examine one of the past year’s buzzwords and the promises made by blockchain-enthusiasts. One of the speakers is Alan Vey, co-founder of blockchain ticketing protocol Aventus, who answered a couple of questions ahead of his panel.
What are you most looking forward to about your panel The Truth About Blockchain?
It will be a great opportunity for most of the biggest blockchain ticketing market entrants to address the industry about the new possibilities blockchain presents and help rule out some of the cases where it does not apply.
Which industry development has impacted the blockchain business the most in recent times? 
The current bearish crypto market has lead to many who did not put a great deal of effort into treasury management to find themselves in a difficult financial position and has lead to increased skepticism of the base technology.

What aspect are you most looking forward to at this year’s Pollstar Live! Conference and why? 
Getting a chance to catch up with everyone in the industry, both the existing established players and new entrants.
What recent accomplishment are you most proud of?
We have designed and implemented a ticket protocol which solves for scale and privacy on a completely open blockchain, requiring no trust in any central party.
What was the live show or shows that most changed your life and why?
When walking between the front of the main stage and the crowd whilst The Weeknd was playing with the founder of Lollapalooza and seeing what an impact one can have on so many people when creating that experience. We hope to be able to protect that relationship between the artist, fan and entrepreneurs with what we are doing.
