Ticketmaster scouts productization of enterprise NFTs beyond ticketing

Ticketmaster’s job posting for a product manager of NFT ticketing tooling reveals the company’s intent to roll out NFT-based enterprise products “across all content categories including sports and music.”

A new job posting by America’s biggest ticketing company, Ticketmaster, reveals mainstream interest in exploring new revenue streams using nonfungible tokens (NFTs)

Over the past two years, artists, musicians and the sports industry helped thrust the NFT ecosystem into the limelight as the technology served its purpose as a powerful fan engagement tool. Conversely, most of the general public boarded the hype train seeking profits via reselling collectibles in the secondary markets.

With the NFT hype eventually slowing down by mid-2022, entrepreneurs and companies are looking for new use cases beyond collectibles. A study conducted by Big 4 accounting firm Deloitte in May 2022 highlighted the untapped potential of the crypto ecosystem to open up newer markets for the sports industry:

“We could see fractional ownership of season tickets and suites and a reinvention of the ticket resale process.”

Following suit, Ticketmaster’s recent job posting for a product manager of NFT ticketing tooling uncovers the company’s intent to roll out NFT-based enterprise products “across all content categories including sports and music.” The role also demands developing new products and features catering to the future needs of its NFT business.
