Your friend Cathrine loves The Dallas Mavericks and she got you some tickets! Hooray! But you deep down you are really a Lakers fan and you don't really want to go but the ticket was kind of expensive.
Thank you Cathrine for being such a good friend and getting me a courtside seat ticket that costs a fortune.
Your alternative is to try to sell it (at a loss - OBVIOUSLY) and try not to get scammed (or knifed) while selling it. So much stress for having good friends.
Oh but your ticket was actually an NFT ticket. That means that you can sell it to one of the existing platforms pretty easily and probably at a higher price. If everything goes as planned, you should be able to sell it in under a minute or even put it up for auction.
But Cathrine is devastated that you want to sell her gift (and make a profit out of it). So you decide to go to the event. And it is actually pretty fun! The check-in is like a normal ticket with a QR code but what is epic is that the DallasM has "airdropped" (lingo for sending you for free) a new NFT that unlocks a hoodie. BOOM! Oh and now you have access to the highlights of the show! Oh and you can sell your collectible ticket after the event?
If it is one utility for NFTs that is epic is being able to resale your tickets without having to jump through hoops or pay crazy fees. And I know this could be a heaven for scalpers (and hell for everyone else) but bear with me.
The future is like this:
There are many issues with that future.
For example, after the initial friction of setting up a metamask wallet, users that bought my NFT tickets for my conference were able to immediately sell them in a HUGE market (OpenSea) or use them to unlock videos from the conference.
Being "on the chain" is hands down the best long term experience. Unless you want people not being able to resale your NFTs. Trust me on this.
And that's it. That's the only thing. I used NFT tickets for my conference and almost 1000 new wallets were created by people that had nothing to do with NFTs before.
It is not rocket science and this is how a community grows.

One thing that I love more than build stuff is helping out Entrepreneurs. I was helped when I started so the least I can do is pay it forward. That has a huge downside.
Every day I get around 100 emails from Entrepreneurs asking for my feedback/help.

This year (2021 for the visitors from the future), I run my first own conference: "V as in Metaverse". It didn't have thousands of attendees (because there is a thing called COVID-19) but it had NFTs as tickets, tons of sponsors and happened in the best place you can be …
In 2021 a crypto event took place in Miami: Bitcoin 2021. One thing that stood out to me was that the tickets were not available for purchase with Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency.
So, I decided for my annual conference "V as in MetaVerse" to use NFTs as tickets.
Every summer I go to Greece to enjoy the Greek islands and every summer I end up spending a considerable amount of vacation time meeting with the Greek Startup community or getting involved in huge projects. And I freaking love it.
So, I decided to formalize this by doing a …
