🤟 How we built our bespoke NFT ticketing system
☀️ 7-8 June 2023 - NFC23 - Pavilhão Carlos Lopes - Lisbon, Portugal
🏖️ 9 June 2023 - Official Closing Party with The Sandbox x Party Degens - Lorosae, Costa da Caparica. 2pm to Midnight.
🎪 How we built our own bespoke NFT ticketing system
2023 is all about pushing our role as a Web3 event further.
A key part of this has been designing a bespoke NFT ticketing system that maximizes the NFT-driven experiences we can provide. Our first step towards this was rewarding the key NFT communities with private ticketing sales 👇
Next, to bring our NFT ticketing full circle, we needed a trusted partner and pioneer who shared our vision and commitment to on-chain systems. So we turned to OpenGem. 🤟
OpenGem provides tools for users and developers to secure ownership of digital assets.
They also advise leading organizations by performing audits on their NFT products.
Together with OpenGem we developed a state-of-the-art on-chain solution for ticketing.
In fact, we’re so happy with this system that we decided to make it available to fellow event organizers interested in using it. Because sharing is caring 🤝
What are the key benefits of this system for event organizers?
Create ERC 721 on-chain ticketing with any artwork
Build different commercialization phases.
Enable special access to ticket sales tailored to owners of specific collections.
Define a % discount per phase for users if they buy a ticket.
Enjoy on-site access thanks to tokenproof.
Get 100% on-chain mechanisms.
Authenticate your ticketing with a gem score of 100/100
Verify if a partner NFT has been redeemed for an event ticket with NFT checker.

💎 NFC 2023 GEM SCORE
Fresh off the back of our OpenGem audit, we are proud to share that NFC has received a Gem Score of
💥 100/100 💥
Why is this worth celebrating? 🍾
👉🏾 It means that we have used best practice on-chain methods to ensure long-term ownership.
A 100/100 Gem Score means that:
Owners can retrieve their original artwork on Arweave and IPFS.
Owners can retrieve an on-chain image version of the NFT.
Owners can prove their ownership by hashing the original artwork using the SHA-256 algorithm and matching the result with the stored proof.
Absolutely no one can alter or delete the artwork and the proof, as soon as the Ethereum blockchain exists.
Continue reading below for the full breakdown 👇🏼
🧪 THE METADATA
1. The original version of the NFT animation is hosted at 2 locations:
First - on the Arweave blockchain @onlyarweave @ArweaveTeam
Arweave is a great decentralized, permanent storage solution. Based on Blockweave, a derivative of the blockchain and proof of access. As long as Blockweave exists, the image will be available. No one can alter or delete the asset.
Second - on IPFS protocol @IPFS
IPFS is a distributed system for storing and accessing files or assets. This is not a blockchain. To be sure about the data availability, someone needs to "pin" your data on IPFS nodes. In this case, OpenGem takes care of it.
The Arweave and IPFS references (hashes) are written on-chain in the smart contract. They are public and constant variables. No one can rewrite or delete it, as long as Ethereum exists.
2. An image version of the animation has been stored on-chain. Yes, on-chain!
This backup helps secure NFT ownership. If Arweave or IPFS fail for any reason, as long as Ethereum Blockchain still exists, owners can retrieve a backup.
This backup is locked and sealed: no one can alter or delete it.
Check out the OpenGem tutorial on how to retrieve this backup: ➡️https://medium.com/art-for-all-nft-platform/how-to-retrieve-on-chain-large-sized-data-df65adef0c2a
3. The provenance proof of the original artwork visual is written on-chain in the smart contract.
This is a public and constant variable and an SHA-256 hash that any user can use to prove the provenance.
No one can rewrite or delete it, as long as Ethereum exists.
4. The description (text) of the ticket is written on-chain too.
This guarantees your rights to access the event.
