ABOUT: The Miami Design District has awarded Miami-based architect and designer, Germane Barnes, the 2022 Miami Design District Annual Design Commission.

Barnes designed a series of massive, whimsical capsules that rock back-and-forth when activated by users and feature vibrant colors reminiscent of Carnival’s feathered costumes and the city’s water-friendly lifestyle. With a nod to steel drums and Soca music, Barnes also designed wind chimes, hundreds of which will be hung in the neighborhood’s trees. Rock | Roll will also include a free-floating dome suspended overhead and animated by light and sound, which will serve as an anchor to a communal and lively commission. Soon to be installed in the Miami Design District as the annual Design Commission, Barnes’ creative — and massive– interactive installation is expected to draw visitors on a global scale.

The NCAA Division I FCS Championship

The NCAA Division I FCS Championship will move to Sunday in 2023, airing live on ABC on January 8 at 2 p.m. ET, from Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas

“We continuously work with the NCAA on ways to evolve our championship coverage,” said Dan Margulis, Senior Director of Programming and Acquisitions. “Moving the FCS Championship to Sunday opens up the possibility of capitalizing on the Sunday afternoon window on ABC, which we are regularly incorporating into our college sports programming.”

“The addition of our championship game to ABC’s Sunday programming lineup is very exciting news for all of us who are passionate about Division I FCS football,” said Jermaine Truax, chair of the Division I Football Championship Committee and Bucknell University Director of Athletics and Recreation. “The committee greatly appreciates ESPN’s longtime commitment to showcasing the FCS Championship and our outstanding student-athletes and coaches. The FCS Championship is annually one of the most exciting postseason tournaments in college sports and having our national championship game on ABC will result in even more exposure for this great event.”

FCS Championship tickets will go on sale to the public Friday, September 16 at 11 a.m. ET at NCAA.com/FCS.

Last season’s FCS Playoffs were the most viewed in nearly a decade. The semifinal matchup between James Madison and North Dakota State averaged 1,145,000 viewers, making it the most-viewed FCS semifinal since 2009. The Saturday semifinal between South Dakota State and Montana State averaged 795,000 viewers, making it the most-viewed Saturday semifinal since 2009.

The FCS Championship Game first aired on ABC in 2020, when North Dakota State captured its eighth title in a 28-20 victory over James Madison.

NFT Ticketing on the Blockchain

Many have claimed that the NFT craze has come and gone, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Rather, NFTs are currently experiencing an evolution — the next stage in their development from a digital asset class that derives its value from its novelty, to one that boasts a genuine use for consumers and businesses. This next stage of NFTs has the potential to disrupt numerous industries, starting with the event ticketing industry.

When NFTs were first introduced to broader consumer markets, they were little more than a few strings of code connected to a JPEG image. “Although hardcore blockchain investors found value in these digital assets, convincing the general public that these assets were worth anything to them was a significant challenge,” explains Hunter Abramson, CEO of innovative NFT ticketing company Relic Tickets. “That is, if you could even get the average person to understand what an NFT was in the first place. But with newer NFTs, it is much easier to show consumers why they are valuable and important.”

Recent trends have seen a shift towards “utility NFTs,” or NFTs that have some real-world value associated with them beyond their value as digital assets. From Bored Apes that serve as their holder’s membership card, to NFTs that can be redeemed for some exclusive reward, these utility NFTs have been taking the world of blockchain by storm. As Abramson tells us, NFT ticketing is only the latest innovation to apply the technology in exciting ways.

The utility of NFT tickets

From the perspective of the user, NFT tickets function virtually the same way as a standard digital ticket. To attend an event, ticket holders simply scan the ticket on their phone and then enter the event in question. What makes an NFT ticket different for the user is what occurs once the event has ended. After the ticket is scanned, it becomes an NFT in the holder’s Ethereum-based crypto wallet, which can then be kept as a digital souvenir, traded, or sold to other users.

The main similarity between live events and NFT projects is that they both depend on a strong community to succeed. Concerts are attended by a group of fans of the performing musician, giving NFT projects a built-in audience. These fans are the type of people who will sometimes spend hundreds of dollars on tickets or tour merchandise, so the digital collectible that is their NFT ticket has an intrinsic value to them.

However, the purpose of NFT tickets is not just their utility to consumers — they also provide safety provisions for both consumers and event organizers that are simply beyond the scope of standard ticketing procedures. The inherent security features offered by blockchain technology will remedy many of the complaints those on both sides of ticketing transactions have about the safety of their tickets.

Many of the ticketing industry’s issues can be attributed to the fact that the technology currently being used is quickly becoming out of date. QR code technology was invented almost 30 years ago, and barcode technology decades before that. Although some more traditional facets of ticketing will still be useful in the next stage of its evolution, such as revolving QR codes, since the industry has been mostly dependent on the same tech for so long, it’s time for a change.

Making the ticketing situation even more urgent is that both consumers and enterprises suffer from the existing technology’s shortcomings. For example, if consumers are scammed, they lose money and are upset at having received a fraudulent ticket that will render them unable to attend a particular event. For the event organizer, that scammed consumer is a ticket that could have been sold, but ultimately equates to lost revenue. 

Furthermore, consumers are more empowered than ever to speak out about their frustrations with technologies in the most powerful way possible: with their wallets. “If a potential customer does not feel comfortable making a ticket purchase because they don’t think that the transaction is safe enough, they simply won’t buy the ticket,” explains Abramson. “Consumers have dozens of events to choose from. If you aren’t investing in the safest, most up-to-date ticketing technology as an event organizer, you risk losing sales to your competition.”

Why NFT tickets are safer

Consumers will recognize the benefits of NFT ticketing for the safety of their transactions, especially its potential to reduce fraud. Fake QR codes and barcodes can be produced, but blockchain code cannot be faked. Given the publicly verifiable nature of blockchain technology, NFT ticket holders can rest assured knowing they hold a genuine ticket to an event.

NFT ticketing also virtually eliminates the possibility of scalping. “Scalpers attempt to purchase tickets at a massive scale to resell them at prices above face value, leaving people who genuinely want to attend without the opportunity to see it,” Abramson adds. “Blockchain technology prevents these scalpers from buying up tickets at massive scales by keeping a verifiable record of every transaction. If certain buyers are acting with malicious intent, event organizers can know.”

However, this does not mean that the secondary market is eliminated. In fact, NFT technology enables a much safer secondary market in which fans can buy and sell tickets from one another without fearing whether or not the transaction is genuine. Once sold, sending a ticket is easier than ever, simply changing hands between Ethereum wallets.

Additionally, from the perspective of event organizers, it is much safer to know exactly who holds these tickets at any given time. Every time a ticketing transaction occurs, it is added to the blockchain. Event organizers can then access these blockchain records to communicate important information with attendees, or even keep track of who will attend the event for safety reasons.

NFT ticketing is the proverbial lightning in a bottle for both the world of blockchain and the ticketing industry. By using the technological advantages of blockchain and NFTs to address the needs of an event ticketing agency that has been running on life support for so long, companies like Relic Tickets are breathing life into both. The result is a ticketing experience that is not only far safer for consumers and event organizers, but one that also offers them unique value in the form of a digital NFT collectible.

ARES MODENA AUCTIONS ONE-OFF S1 PROJECT SPYDER SUPERCAR IN AID OF UNICEF

  • ARES Modena’s one-off supercar, the S1 Project Spyder, has sold for €1.2 million at the “Luisa Via Roma for UNICEF” charity gala
  • Exclusive edition created especially for the event, with all proceeds donated to global humanitarian charity
  • Exclusive S1 model designed entirely by the Modena-based company, immediately recognizable by its profile characterized by the absence of a windshield and roof
  • ARES’s commitment to UNICEF continues, supporting humanitarian causes around the world

ARES Modena is pleased to announce the sale of an exclusive “one-off” model of the Supercar S1 Project Spyder at the”Luisa Via Roma for UNICEF” charity gala held on July 30, 2022 at La Certosa di San Giacomo in Capri, Italy. 

Taking centre stage at the auction organized in aid of global humanitarian charity, UNICEF, the one-off model created especially for the event by the Modenese atelier stunned guests who submitted bids to secure the supercar created by the ARES Centro Stile, as the brand continues to carve out an increasingly valuable position in the luxury coachbuilding market. 

Despite global challenges, UNICEF continues to fight every day for the rights of children around the world, providing them with safe shelter, food and protection from wars, natural disasters, and inequalities.  

A winning bid of €1.2 million – with all proceeds donated directly to UNICEF – secured the instantly recognisable S1 Project Spyder. Designedwithout a windscreen, the sinuous carbon fiber body takes on a unique and organic shape, flowing inside the passenger compartment dividing and enveloping the passengers. Handmade, customised and richly finished with the finest leathers, the interior of S1 Project Spyder reveals elegant and minimalistic lines, with maximum attention to detail. 

This unique model allows drivers and passengers to feel a driving experience without filters. In fact, two wind deflectors have been designed, elegantly emerging from the streamlined bodywork, the deflectors that redirect the air current over the passengers into the air intakes behind the headrests, creating a virtual canopy and a calm yet unfiltered driving experience. 

Commenting on the auction, ARES Modena CEO and co-founder Dany Bahar said: “We are incredibly pleased to once again give our support to such an important charity as UNICEF. I am delighted that the “one-off” model of our Supercar S1 Project Spyder has attracted such global attention, meaning we are able to now donate a significant amount of support to UNICEF and help them continue their invaluable work where it is needed most.”
