After purchasing an expensive ticket for an event, I went to use it at the front gate and embarrassingly found out that I had been used already. It was not a valid ticket and was not able to attend the event as all my friends had a great time.
What it does
Event creators can make unique tickets, sell them all distributed on the blockchain and at the time of the event, the users can enter using their unique key. The key can be verified on the ethereum blockchain with a unique state of used or not used. Also, event creators can have the option of not allowing the tickets to be transferable, which means that the person who purchase the ticket directly, must use that ticket.

How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Learning more complex solidity functions, using web3js, offering as many use cases for users as possible, displaying information from the smart contracts in a well presented format
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Building a working product
What we learned
How to build on ethereum beyond ERC-20, ERC-223, ERC-721, how to connect with web3js, paying contracts, building customized scripts
What's next for EvenTix
=>Doing Proof of Concept at 1 Event and continuing to grow a base.
=>Including a token model - token launch, which the tokens can be used to create events, add ticket tiers(VIP, etc.), purchase tickets as individuals
=>Partnering with larger companies, building sponsors, and strategic partners to help get adoption
