                                      Web3 Use-Case: Onchain Tickets โœˆ

                                      You asked for Web3 use-cases, and we listened. Let's start solid and fly into the world of airtravel onchain tickets โ€“ and no, we're not calling them NFTs.

                                      Why Onchain Tickets are Simply Better ๐ŸŒŸ

                                      • Rock-Solid Security: Onchain tickets are like the crown jewels of your travel plans, locked up tight in the blockchain. With them, your flight details are impenetrable โ€“ no more worries about hacks or data breaches.
                                        • True Ownership & Control: These aren't just tickets; they're your personal travel tokens. Stored securely in your crypto wallet, they give you full control. Overbooking? Not without your say-so. Cancelled flight? You'll be the first to know, and the decision's yours.
                                          • Smooth Sailing Operations: Say goodbye to paper and eticket hassles. Onchain tickets mean faster check-ins and smoother operations. It's the express lane to the skies, with you in the pilot's seat of your travel plans.
                                            • First-Class Perks: These tickets don't just get you from A to B; Picture this - curated and exclusive VIP perks only for Onchain Ticket owners. These privileges extend beyond the airport, granting you access to exclusive events, partnerships, airdrops, and experiences that elevate your travel experience to the next level (Read also POINTS/TOKENS).

                                              Pioneers in Onchain Ticketing โœˆ

                                              • Flybondi: Argentina's Flybondi introduced the Ticket 3.0 program in 2023, transforming paper tickets into NFTs on the Algorand blockchain for enhanced security and verifiable ownership.
                                                • Travala: Blockchain-based travel agency Travala unveiled Travel Tiger NFTs in 2023 on the Ethereum blockchain, granting holders access to luxurious accommodations and VIP events.
                                                  • Uptrip: This airline loyalty program aggregator has integrated onchain tickets, rewarding members with digital trading card games which they can use to complete specific collections and redeem rewards. All this powered by the European giants Lufthansa.
                                                    • Etihad Airways: In July 2023, Etihad launched 300 limited-edition digital assets. These RWB (Real World Benefits) offer perks like Etihad Silver Tier status, Yas Marina Formula 1 access, priority check-in, 25% extra Etihad Guest Miles, lounge access, and more. They're also planning a blockchain-powered loyalty program, the โ€œStake-for-Milesโ€ ๐Ÿ˜Ž

                                                        • Regulation Riddles: Clearer rules around NFTs in aviation would help.
                                                          • Blockchain Onboarding: More travellers need to hop on the blockchain aircraft for smoother ticketing.

                                                            Sure, but the Future's Bright ๐Ÿ”ฎ

                                                            • Fraud Prevention: Bid farewell to ticket fraud; onchain tickets' security measures ensure fair pricing for all passengers.
                                                              • Elevated Loyalty Programs: Airlines can craft innovative loyalty schemes directly tied to onchain ticket ownership, offering exclusive benefits.
                                                                • Enhanced Fan Engagement: Digital collectibles like artworks and personalised travel experiences deepen connections with passengers.
                                                                  • New distribution channel: Access to a particular and effective marketing channel that can unlock to grow customer base and revenue.

                                                                    Wrapping Up: Clear Skies Ahead โ›…

                                                                    Onchain tickets are all set to revolutionise air travel with top-notch security, streamlined processes, and some seriously cool perks. And the best part?

                                                                    We're looking forward to the day when swapping or selling tickets is just a walk in the park. No more headaches, no crazy fees.

                                                                    Jasper Cuppaidge's Journey ๐Ÿ—บ

Starting with glass collection in a pub, he later opened The Horseshoe Pub and began brewing his own lager.

                                                                    From Mac's to Camden ๐Ÿ™„

                                                                    Hells Lager - The Flagship ๐Ÿ

                                                                    Big Brewery Backing ๐Ÿ’ธ

                                                                    Art and Ale Collide ๐ŸŽจ

                                                                    You know what? Just grab a pint of Hells and taste the legacy of London ๐Ÿป
