London based blockchain ticketing platform Aventus has raised $20m through their Initial Coin Offering. Aventus, which has been dubbed “the Bitcoin of ticketing,” aims to prevent unregulated touting and counterfeit tickets. Co-founder Alan Vey said: “One of the biggest problems plaguing the events industry is touting. Almost everyone has had the experience where they go online to buy tickets for their favourite artist, only to find that they’ve sold out in minutes.”
