Elrond Tokens Can Now Be Used to Watch David Guetta

As crypto continues on its quest to reach the stars, more doors are opening for cryptocurrency holders. Now party goers can buy tickets to one of the biggest European music festivals, and listen to the world’s top DJs, including megastar David Guetta, using cryptocurrency. 

Organizers of UNTOLD 2021 have teamed up with blockchain unicorn Elrond Network to further introduce crypto to the entertainment industry. 

Enthusiasts of both electronic music and crypto will have the opportunity to purchase tickets using the EGLD token that powers the Elrond network. 

Opportunities to Learn About Crypto During the Festival

Representatives of the Elrond Network will be in attendance in a special Elrond lounge to meet their community of crypto enthusiasts, and anyone interested in learning more about the crypto world. 

The company will share information about exciting developments in the Elrond ecosystem, while crypto newbies will have the opportunity to take the initial steps into the crypto world by getting their first wallet and putting cryptocurrency in it. 

"Blockchain technology has immense potential for large gatherings of digital natives who have, for a brief period of time, become part of a hyperlocal economy. 

This year we engage with EGLD tickets purchases and NFTs. We look forward to exploring additional use cases in the following editions, such as a festival economy running on semi-fungible tokens issued on the Elrond Network. Also, artists dropping NFTs live on stage, for all their Maiar fans to engage with uniquely."

Expressed Beniamin Mincu, CEO at Elrond Network.

Capturing Life’s Moments as NFTs
