Ticketfly co-founder’s blockchain startup Tari reveals plans – including ticketing

In early April, Music Ally was first to report on a new startup from ticketing firm Ticketfly’s co-founder Dan Teree. Codenamed Big Neon, it was slated to be a “highly scalable, mobile-centric event ticketing platform” using blockchain technology.

Now the company has been officially announced, but with a new name – Tari – and a wider brief than just ticketing.

Tari says that it’s working on “a new open source blockchain protocol being built specifically for digital assets” which includes concert tickets, but also in-game items, virtual currencies and loyalty points for a range of services.
