Australia, May 21, 2023 / AlexaBlockchain/ – The organizing team of EDCON 2023, the prominent Ethereum developer conference, has joined forces with Smart Token Labs to introduce an innovative feature called “Permissionless Perks.”
This Open Loyalty solution empowers event attendees to independently verify their ticket ownership to third-party perk providers. EDCON 2023, set to take place in Montenegro from May 19th to 23rd, will offer over 30 exclusive perks that can only be claimed by attendees.
Victor Zhang, the CEO of Smart Token Labs, expressed his excitement about the launch of Permissionless Perks, which he hailed as one of the few commercial examples of Open Loyalty. He explained, “It’s a permissionless Open Loyalty solution where the verification occurs between the ticket holder and the perk provider without involving the event organizer. A URL delivered to attendees acts as an attestation that verifies ticket ownership and is stored in the browser’s local storage, enabling the seamless claiming of perks on the providers’ websites.”
The collaboration between the EDCON 2023 organizing team and Smart Token Labs has been well-received by industry experts. Sky Harris, the Marketing Lead of the De University of Ethereum and co-organizer of EDCON, praised Permissionless Perks as a remarkable way to enhance the value for attendees. Harris stated, “What we love about this solution is that it enables any third party to add value to the attendee experience by providing perks exclusively for our ticket holders. It’s a truly permissionless and decentralized solution, and these attestations unlock unique value for our attendees.”
EDCON 2023 has curated a diverse selection of more than 30 perks for its attendees. These perks range from the opportunity to mint a derivative Cool Cat in EDCON swag for free to the chance of claiming one of the 50 servings of the renowned ‘Njegusi Prosciutto’ from a celebrated local Montenegrin restaurant.
The organizing team expressed their gratitude to Smart Token Labs for their support and contribution to EDCON. By utilizing their fully open-source TokenScript technology, Smart Token Labs has enabled ticket attestations and the implementation of Permissionless Perks, solidifying their commitment to supporting the Ethereum developer community.
In addition to EDCON 2023, Smart Token Labs has also provided Permissionless Perks as a public goods supporter to two other prominent Ethereum developer events. Devcon VI in Bogota and DevConnect in Amsterdam, which took place in 2022 and 2023, respectively, have also benefited from the integration of this groundbreaking feature.
EDCON 2023 promises to be an exceptional event for Ethereum enthusiasts and developers alike. The introduction of Permissionless Perks through the partnership with Smart Token Labs adds another layer of excitement and value, ensuring an unforgettable experience for all attendees.
