When the Chainpass team set out to build an NFT-ticketing platform, our goal was to bring this technology to the masses through concerts, music festivals, sports, and all forms of live ticketed events. The first iteration of our product serviced token-gated communities. These communities already had Web3 wallets and tokens at their disposal so it was a perfect fit. However today we’re pleased to share the next iteration of our product: Chainpass Tickets.

Every ticket on Chainpass is an NFT issued via our Chainpass protocol smart contracts on the Polygon blockchain.

Chainpass is now a primary ticketing provider. Think Ticketmaster, EventBrite, TicketWeb, etc. At the moment we’re working with artists, show promoters, and venues to provide ticketing to their live shows. Every ticket on Chainpass is an NFT issued via our Chainpass protocol smart contracts on the Polygon blockchain. This new form of ticket enables event hosts to have more control over their pricing, capture royalties on secondary transactions, have a transparent view of who is attending their event, and a more secure ticketing technology preventing fraud and duplicated ticket sales.

For the past few months, I’ve been hard at work building something new alongside some close friends and colleagues in the crypto space. What we’ve built is incredibly valuable for the crypto community and today I’m thrilled to share what it is. Introducing Chainpass, the one ticket for all of your token-gated IRL experiences.

Token-based communities like ChainrunnersBored Ape Yacht Club, and Friends with Benefits DAO are groups of individuals centered around a collection of NFTs or fungible tokens. These communities use their tokens in order to align incentives and gate access to virtual or IRL experiences.

There are a number of services available to these communities that allow them to add utility to their tokens. Collab.land is a Discord integration that enables the distribution of Discord roles via token verification. Premint is a service that gates early access to an NFT’s minting. These services are still fairly new to the ecosystem and are already providing a ton of value to these communities.

When it comes to token-gating IRL events, communities have limited options. Popular event-hosting services like EventBrite don’t quite get the job done because they can’t verify NFT ownership at the door to the event. What token-based communities need is a tool that integrates with your Web3 wallets, scans a ticket, and verifies that that attendee possesses the correct tokens in order to access their event. This is why we built Chainpass.

It seems like every month now, there is a new fully on-chain project that crops up. This past fall we had Anonymice. Soon after came Chainrunners. And now Flipmap, a derivative of Blitmap, seems to be the latest big one. Each of these have their own approach, but the one thing that separates them from 99% of projects out there: fully on-chain.

But what is fully on-chain and why does it matter?

There are multiple flavors of on-chain NFT’s. Dom does a great job explaining in this tweet:

Hey everyone, my name is Brandon.

I’m an engineer and I got into NFT’s this summer, and built my first solidity contract sometime this fall. There’s a Brandon coin floating around Polygon somewhere..

The first project that really caught my fascination was Chainrunners. I remember digging into their rendering contract and being blown away that you could render an svg on-chain like that.

While this was happening, I was also looking for an NFT to use as my PFP. But I couldn’t seem to find one that felt like an accurate presentation of myself. I do enjoy the generative pieces, however its impossible to sift through 10,000 randomly generated apes to find that one that fits my personality. And so this was the inspiration for my project: a custom NFT collection where the art is provided by the minter.
