We propose TickEth, a system that aims at mitigating some of the problems encountered by the ticketing industry. The name TickEth is built by combining the words ticket, its application domain, and Ethereum, the underlying platform we adopted for the development of the prototype. Nowadays, ticketing ecosystem is wide and fragmented, and faces several problems. TickEth exploits Ethereum smart contracts to tackle the inability of checking the authenticity of tickets sold online (that can be fake or duplicates of a real ticket), the wild price range of resold tickets in the secondary market, and the unwieldy refund procedures. TickEth is an open specification, where different third-party clients can freely interact, and can be instantiated by different vendors as they like. We implemented a proof-of-concept prototype, available at: https://github.com/H221/TickEth.
