The Student Engineering Catholic University (UC) have created an online platform & # 39; digital inputs based blockchain, called Tricket, To avoid falsifications and sales of their new more expensive, by allowing the event organizers to have a unique and secure record & # 39; authorized buyers.
The technology was presented in the contest Research, Innovation and Entrepreneurship & # 39; UC Engineering, an initiative to support the program & # 39; 2030 Engineering & # 39; Corfo so students continue their innovations, both in Chile and abroad.
"The falsification & # 39; entry is easy and takes place with & # 39; re rhythm. For example, f & # 39; digital card your QR code can & # 39; to be transferred and sold under & # 39; photos or screenshots to many people, who are only aware of fraud in access & # 39; control for an event ", said Tomás Pérez, one of the authors of & # 39; Tricket.
The future engineer UC said that in the case of resale of tickets, the informal market generates problems for users and producers. In Chile, he added that there are concerts by major artists where this type & # 39; get ticket even in 600% on his original price.
"To restore & # 39; behind this type of & # 39; situation, our technological solution consists of an online platform & # 39; digital inputs based blockchain, where each producer creates smart card and decide the parameters , such as quantity, selling price and selling new minimum ". .
On the basis of & # 39; it & # 39; above, the student explained that issued amount & # 39; tokens is issued, that are associated with paper QR code of & # 39; every buyer. When the document & # 39; identification is connected to the inlet, it is possible to enter the event b & # 39; easy and safe way.
To transfer tickets between buyers, the – platform & # 39; Tricket It works as an open market, where the card is available for purchase by anyone at a price lower than or equal to the official price defined by the manufacturer.
Technological development based on blockchain, students of Engineering UC Benjamín Fuentes, Valentina de VIDTS, Pablo Zurita and Benjamín Domb also participated.
The business of selling again
The Chilean legislation does not prohibit the resale of tickets and neither govern how the transaction should be carried out or at least the price it should be sold. Today the sale is sanctioned & # 39; above the price indicated by the card just in case & # 39; sporting events, grounds & # 39; security.
Bitcoin blockchain introduced the technology to the world, By becoming the first digital currency to guarantee storage and transactions with & # 39; a safe manner and without the need & # 39; intermediaries.
The cryptocurrency blockchain is a digital database, public and distributed through & # 39; list can & # 39; be traced a & # 39; registers to avoid all & # 39; elimination, adulteration or manipulation, even by the same & # 39; storage device operators.
This technology works by & # 39; a large network & # 39; computers working under the same protocol, which all hold a public copy of the same database, update it with & # 39; consensual way and give approval & # 39; third parties or central servers.
