Talk 1: Lessons learned from tokenising the FIFA World Cup Tickets on Ethereum by Victor Zhang

In June 2018, we set out to solve some of the biggest problems plaguing the ticketing industry, namely
fraud and lack of regulation in the secondary market.

We partnered with Shankai Sports (an exclusive agent for FIFA in the Great China region) to issue FIFA World CUP tickets using our non fungible standard ERC875. 28 customers who had never touched cryptocurrencies before, used our tokens to enter the game & we would like to share what we learned solving ticketing fraud and using smart contracts to regulate the secondary market.

Along the way, we implemented an atomic swap system to allow our ticket holders to safely sell and transfer their tickets to others and thought aloud about implementing KYC via cryptographic identity protocols that improve event safety. We would love to share our learnings and give a few nuggets of wisdom to anyone thinking of creating solutions with Ethereum and other blockchain technologies.

Talk 2: Identity done right on Ethereum by Weiwu Zhang

In 2017, uPort and ERC725 experimented with blockchain identity using identity contracts. In practise, a cunning observer can link the identity proofs to its user’s identity by indexing all interactions to that identity contract. Furthermore, a user who provides proof of age to buy a beer may leak information about the user’s other attributes. Weiwu Zhang and Tore Frederiksen have a solution to mitigate these issues by using Merkle Tree attestations. There is a paper† and they are working on a reference implementation.
This talk is about the design and considerations for Ethereum identity attestations.
