TicketChain formed in November 2016, spawning from the “Chainsmiths Blockchain Hackathon”!
Having completed and placed in two previous competitions this year it’s with great excitement that we can enter the next phase of TicketChain’s Journey! We are fortunate enough to have been accepted a place on the prestigious Blackstone Launchbox accelerator programme at Trinity College Dublin and are looking forward to working with the great mentors there between June and September.
TicketChain is a white label B2B ticketing platform which allows events, venues & stadiums to control their own primary and secondary ticket markets. By leveraging Blockchain technology, TicketChain enables the secure transfer of tickets from issuer to consumer and also peer-to-peer. This aims to eliminate fraud, reduce touting and ensure artists, venues & events are able to capture a share of the secondary market! Massive thanks to Stu Fergus, Alison Treacy, John Whelan from TCD LaunchBox and everyone who has supported us so far!
Kevin (MSISS student 4th year) and Jake (Economics 4th year) worked side by side over the summer in Deloitte’s consultancy practice. They then met Zack (Blockchain Masters student) at the Hackathon. Jake pitched an idea, which later became TicketChain, and the rest is history!

And here’s a quick Summary of the Dragons Den competition, where we placed second!
