It seems like a natural fit, the way you’d play an arcade game at home, but when you’re in the midst of a music festival or rock concert, that’s not always possible.
Trippie Redd, a 20-year-old Californian who runs the website Trippies for Live, is the creator of a new service that helps artists and their fans pay for concerts.
Instead of paying out cash for tickets, tickets are bought for pennies, which are then distributed via a system called an auction system.
“We use an auction model where people pay for the ticket, then the ticket is distributed and then people buy tickets and sell tickets,” said Redd.
“It’s like an auction for people to come together and have a good time.
People have been doing this for decades, and this is their version of it.”
Ticket prices range from $50 for a concert at a local arena to more than $3,000 for a gig in a massive amphitheatre, which can hold thousands.
Trips are not limited to just the cost of the tickets themselves.
They’re also sold out of the venue.
And it’s possible to buy and sell these tickets without ever actually attending a concert, making it very easy to use.
But how does it work?
The company uses a system that lets people bid on a number of different tickets at once.
If a user puts in a bid for three tickets, for instance, he or she gets two tickets in return.
“The user has to provide their own name and email address, so we know who they are,” said Josh Brown, the company’s founder and CEO.
The auction system then determines which ticket has the most bids, and the user wins the auction.
It’s then up to the company to verify the user’s identity, and they’re verified once by the organizers of the concert or event.
There’s also a second verification step, which is done by a third party.
“If the third party says that they’re not verified, we then remove the ticket from the auction and it gets returned to the user,” said Brown.
But, there’s another way Trippys auction system works: the company has a third-party that can verify the buyer.
It does this by verifying that the user has been online for at least 24 hours, has the correct email address and has the right to be a bidder.
It also has to confirm that the ticket has a buyer’s agent, and has verified that the person has enough money in their bank account to cover the ticket purchase.
In addition, Trippy’s system is encrypted to protect the privacy of the users, and it has a feature that lets users pay with bitcoin.
“There’s a ton of work behind that system, but the big thing is the transparency,” said Red.
“People can see exactly how much money is being spent on tickets, and who’s winning.”
The company says it works around a number to avoid “stealing” the audience.
In an interview with Mashable, Redd explained that he used to take people’s credit cards and send them to Trippypost.com.
“I don’t think that’s necessary,” he said.
“All we have to do is put up a link to Tripps.com and they’ll pay for tickets.”
Now, if you’re a concertgoer and you’re going to an event, it’s much easier to find out who the ticket-buyer is.
“Now, if we can just go out and do that, we could be able to have that transparency, and people can see that the people who have the most money are the people that have the biggest capacity,” said Browne.
“This way, you don’t have to pay out a lot of money.”
With the help of this tool, users are able to get tickets for free, which could help the industry stay afloat.
“That was kind of a big win for me,” said redd.
“They’re actually doing something good for the industry.
They were just the first one to start doing this.”
