According to an announcement from S7 Airlnies, the blockchain platform used for the ticketing system has recorded sales of $ 1 billion in a month. S7 developed this platform in collaboration with Alpha Bank last year. Based on Ethereum technology, the new ticketing system has greatly reduced the processing time of ticket sales.

The project shows that blockchain “creates value and is largely decisive for the B2B market,” commented Pavel Ryazanov, transaction manager at Alfa-Bank.
Possible listing on Canaan Creative
