France could finally adopt Blockchain to secure sporting and cultural events. The news is very positive for the crypto sphere that could find a new breath in the country of human rights.
The Olympic Games are approaching and France is preparing to receive a large number of spectators. For the country, only one solution: the Blockchain.
Each edition of the Olympic Games must be great, and the country of human rights intends to make the next edition an unforgettable event. However, it is fashionable to avoid certain excesses. As the Stade de France fiasco remains etched in everyone’s mind, France has decided to appeal to the cryptosphere.
Crypto Finds Specific Use in France
A few days ago, the Minister of Sports had proposed to the National Assembly to adopt the Blockchain to prevent counterfeit tickets during sporting or cultural events. It seems that your call has been heard.
In a report on the organization of the future Olympic Games that will take place in Paris in 2024, the representative Michel Cadot insists on the need to use blockchain ticket sales.
Cadot’s recommendations include the following:
- Secure and personalized ticketing to be used for Paris 2024 should be introduced to all major international sporting events taking place in France.
- This would mean the total dematerialization of the nominative tickets, sent by the organizer just a few days before by SMS and made up of a rotating QR code using Blockchain technology.
- These would only be active within a virtual perimeter and corresponding to the security perimeter of the site, which can be verified first during the pre-selection and then deactivated once the visitor has entered the place.
For France, nothing new since, according to Michel Cadot, Blockchain ticket sales will already be available for the next Rugby World Cup, as well as the Olympic and Paralympic Games, which will also take place in 2024.
Blockchain Tickets are Revolutionizing the Crypto Vision in France
If France can wait until 2024 to adopt this new system, the crypto sphere did not wait to be fully democratized to take over the ticket business. Recently, the famous Coachella music festival offered lifetime tickets in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
The country of human rights, which prefers to wait two more years, could be one of the last to launch banknotes whose use has revolutionized the rest of the world.
Therefore, it will be easy to democratize the system in the country, if the initiative is successful. At the moment, the government has not sent a response. As a result, no alternative was immediately adopted.
Either way, the adoption of Blockchain in the world of events is still great news for the industry. While waiting for the first results of this experiment on French territory, the world of cryptocurrencies has a lot to hold on to.
The use of tickets in the form of NFTs would give the industry a boost and allow it to continue the practice in the country, without offending a skeptical Nobel Prize winner.
