our solution

A transparent payment solution for festivals using blockchain technology

our technology

cashless

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.

smart contracts

Immediate redistribution

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.

Secure

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.

friendly

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.”

  • Samuel Aubert

    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
