A transparent payment solution for festivals using blockchain technology
Using blockchain technologies allows us to provide security by design. The information transiting through our solution are as immutable as the Ethereum blockchain itself.
Every financial transaction happening during the festival will be visible in real time through the BlockchainMyArt app.
Users can keep track of all financial flows in real time and see where their money goes.It also underlines the efforts of your event and encourages positive behaviors through real time visualisation.
Cashless blockchain based payments
A cashless payment solution transportable and adaptable to each festival specific context. The hardware and software of this payment solution can be reused in several cultural events.
Based on the Ethereum blockchain, all collected payments are immediately redistributed to the proper recipient following redistribution rules (smart contracts). Artists, hosting venue, gastronomy suppliers, volunteers, diverse taxes. Choice is left to the hosting festival and visible to all, on our app, as well as on the blockchain.
Incorruptible and safe
Thanks to the blockchain distributed architecture, all information are inviolable. A great care is also given to private data protection. If a festival goer doesn’t wish to subscribe, he/she won’t be asked to provide any private information during the acquisition of a bracelet.
Pay with cash as you desire
Blockchain My Art proposes the first “cash friendly” cashless system. Festival-goers don’t have to change their habits. Smartphone, wristband, cash, credit cards are all accepted. In any case, transactions will be recorded on the blockchain and smart contracts will be implemented, including from cash sources. Cashless can and should be a deliberate choice, not a forced solution.
“We’re very proud to be the first French festival to implement the innovative payment solution. With BlockchainMyArt, we are showcasing to our audience that we have nothing to hide and how fair cultural economics can be.”
Director of Les Siestes festival
“In 2016, the idea came out from an observation: the music circuit is still too opaque: artists or cultural workers struggle to make a living, although audiences have never consumed as much cultural material as today. Money is spent and not always received. Using the Blockchain is for us the opportunity to test how decentralized and transparent tools could shake this established system”
Director of SeaNaps
