The Ticket Explorer is both an interface and API suite to read blockchain ticket information that passes through GET Protocol. Because of the transparency and open nature of the blockchain, all tickets from all integrators will be visible within the explorer.
You can see the Ticket Explorer as a public gateway to tickets registered & distributed from Ticket Engine.
Use the Ticket Explorer to:
- View registered tickets and events on the blockchain.
- See the timeline of an individual ticket.
- Browse statistics on traffic flowing through the platform.
- View the collectible tickets claimed for a blockchain wallet address.
- Access the raw blockchain transactions for a ticket.
The production Ticket Explorer is available publicly.
Each ticket is registered on the chain and is accessible by two IDs; the index (sequential) or by the transaction hash (random, generated). Either of these IDs will return an individual ticket.
This is used to display a timeline of events for that ticket, including the metadata provided when creating an event through the Ticket Engine. Transparency is at the heart of what we offer and the ticket explorer offers a convenient way allow your users to check the validity of their ticket, even just by redirecting them to their ticket using a blockchain ID.
This is as simple as constructing a URL using the
txHash received from a ticket callback as follows:
After the event cycle (or more accurately as soon as a ticket is scanned), the ticket will be eligible to be claimed. Processing a claim transfers the ticket NFT to an address managed externally to GET Protocol. Typically this would be the wallet address of a user that wishes to claim their own ticket as an item of digital memorabilia.
Because this represents true digital ownership the process of claiming is not reversible. It becomes fully owned by the destination address and is free to be tracked and traded on third party marketplaces such as OpenSea.
