Teaser of the company

ComeTogether (cometogether.network) provides infrastructure for event ticketing, fraud and scalping prevention along with secondary market revenue management. EOSIO blockchain ticketing engine controls the entire lifecycle of a ticket.

Developed BackTogether – COVID-19 Passports (COVID and antibody test status) when the events industry shut down during lockdowns. Functionality has been integrated into ComeTogether, adding a health component to the tickets, to enable safe restart of events.

ComeTogether will test and validate the following blockchain-based solution in the scope of BlockStart:

ComeTogether is an event ticketing, fraud elimination and secondary market revenue management tool. An EOSIO blockchain ticketing engine controls the entire lifecycle of a ticket. From initial sales to resales and ticket validation, through innovative ticket delivery (dynamic QR code for now, will add bluetooth ticket interface within 2021) all phases along the way are covered.

ComeTogether takes a multilayered product approach. The first two target ticketing companies, as well as big event organizers that use their own branded site, while the third targets smaller event organizers:

  1. ComeTogether Network: An EOSIO Blockchain ticketing protocol and soon network on EOS Main-net (currently smart contracts are deployed and utilized for events on EOSIO Jungle Testnet). This can be used directly from tech savvy users in a decentralized manner or simply through ComeTogether Network API.
  2. ComeTogether Ticketing Tools: White-label tools that utilize the aforementioned ticketing infrastructure and provide an end-to-end solution to ticketing providers. Namely a ticket marketplace, a ticket wallet and an organizer’s dashboard.
  3. ComeTogether App (https://app.cometogether.live): The aforementioned ticketing tools under ComeTogether branding.

Finally we developed BackTogether COVID-19 Passport app (COVID-19 and antibody test status) as a short term pivot, when the events industry shut down during lockdowns. Functionality has been integrated into ComeTogether, essentially adding a health component to the tickets, to enable safe restart of events.
