The Aventus Protocol is an open standard event ticketing platform based on blockchain.[1][2][3] The software protocol allows the price of tickets to be controlled, a unique identity associated with each ticket and a record of who it was sold to.[1] It is being developed by the UK-based Aventus Protocol Foundation in order to combat counterfeit tickets and uncontrolled resale.[2][4] The Aventus Protocol is based on Ethereum blockchain technology[2] and its crypto token is the Aventus Token (AVT).

Annika Monari and Alan Vey are the co-founders and directors of the Aventus Protocol Foundation.[1][2] The project was funded by selling shares in September 2017[3]—it crowdfunded 60000 Ether during both a private pre-sale and a public initial coin offering.[2][4]

The Aventus Protocol will be used for some of the tickets sold for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.[1][3][5]
