TokenStub’s blockchain-based decentralized ticketing platform provides natural solutions to many of these challenges and promises a fair, efficient and secure marketplace for both buyers and sellers.
The TokenStub platform utilizes a unique profiling and queueing system to ensure that real customers are able to access the primary ticket sales market rather than bulk ticket buyers. This ensures that individual customers have greater opportunity than the scalpers to purchase front row seats.
TokenStub has fewer overheads than a centralized ticketing marketplace and is able to distribute those savings to both the buyers and sellers. TokenStub only charges the seller a low 1% service fee on the price of each ticket sold in the marketplace. Service fees are used to cover TokenStub’s operational expenses. Resold tickets incur a 5% fee passed on to the previous holders of that ticket. Buyers do not pay any fee.
Unlike traditional sales channels, all transactions occurring on the blockchain can be viewed by the entire community. In the current market, there is no way to determine if a primary ticket seller has released a small portion of their tickets on the primary market and subsequently dumped the rest on secondary markets with a massive markup, which seems to be a common technique in the industry.
With traditional ticket sales, after a transaction is complete, the seller no longer has any ties to that ticket. With TokenStub, upstream sellers of the tickets continue to collect revenue each time the ticket is resold. Whenever a ticket is resold, 5% of the profit over the previous sale is charged as a fee and distributed evenly between all previous sellers of the ticket.
