Founder Profile: This Founder Never Wants You To Buy A Fake Ticket Again
Have you ever bought tickets from a scalper or stubhub only to get to the gate and be told you aren’t allowed in? There are few feelings that leave you feeling queasy and unsettled.
Live sports events are supposed to be fun but can be ruined by the $2.3B in fake tickets sold every year. On the other side of the equation, it is pretty wild to consider that despite all of the ads in a stadium, teams rarely have a good handle on who the heck is actually attending their games.
Perhaps blockchain technology can help bring transparency to who is attending games while forever ridding the ticket markets of fakes! That is a world I think we would all like to live in. Harold Hughes and his team at Bandwagon are out to solve this very issue.
