Users will be able to sell or transfer the tokens to other travelers up to three days before the applicable flight, for example.

Flybondi to Issue NFT Tickets

More companies are including NFTs as part of their business models due to the perceived benefits and advantages they can bring. Flybondi, a low-cost Argentine airline, has also decided to use blockchain tech in its operations, announcing it will issue tickets as non-fungible tokens (NFTs), broadening the scope of what customers can do with them.

The solution, which was developed by Travelx, a blockchain tech development company, will allow customers to trade, transfer, and sell the tickets, changing the names of the users up to three days before the flight.

The alliance also introduced the possibility of purchasing these tickets using Binance Pay with stablecoins, including USDC at the beginning. However, Travelx announced that other stablecoins will be included to provide more possibilities to customers.

Regarding the benefits users may enjoy with the change, Travelxstated:

This innovation in the industry will allow greater flexibility for travelers who will be able to anticipate their travel plans by accessing better rates without the risks associated with purchasing tickets well in advance.

Web3 Introduces Secondary Markets

The inclusion of Web3 tech and NFTs in such operations will open secondary markets for customers. About the use of these new technologies, Travelx stated the move brings a new phase “where the travel industry and the world of the new web3 come together to provide a much more flexible experience for travelers, while generating new sources of revenue and a strong reduction in transactional costs for airlines.”

According to Flybondi’s statements, the company is one of the pioneer organizations implementing this kind of functionality and expects others to follow if this experiment proves successful.

Projects using NFTs as part of their operations have multiplied this year. On September 8, the European Unionannounceda plan to use NFTs to protect intellectual property and fight counterfeiting. In August, areportissued by Grand View Research, a market research company, estimated the NFT market will grow to reach $200 billion in 2030.

The Harvest
An anthropomorphic figure stands, wide eyed, staring at the viewer; its body masculine, muscular, and humanoid. Its “mind” dissociates into a conglomerate of structures resembling feathers, grain, teeth–as well as a radial flower “node”, casting linear rays throughout the composition. To his left, a vat of bodies gesture and writhe in a kind of amniotic soup, attended by a video game robot. The bot's red display reads “uWu”. Behind the robot and filling the left side of the composition is an archaic figure composed of a variety of vintage objects and symbols. Among them are a hardbound book with ancient cuneiform scripts, indicating barley, beer, bread, ox, house, and sky, behind which is a grimacing, salivating jagged toothed maw; and an old Commodore floppy drive. The figure’s head tilts toward an illuminated crescent moon, suggesting the Egyptian Sacred Bull. The archaic figure is composed of a variety of mutating cells, which shift in color, and pattern; eventually breaking free into an ephemeral broadcast of bubbles which move across the background. The work came into being against a psychological introspection, which included associations to pop culture such as alien abduction and pod people, as well as quite a bit of reflection on grains as a symbol of civilization, agriculture, sustenance, life, and imbibing (mainly whiskies).

The CryptoPunks are 10,000 uniquely generated characters. No two are exactly alike, and each one of them can be officially owned by a single person on the Ethereum blockchain. Originally, they could be claimed for free by anybody with an Ethereum wallet, but all 10,000 were quickly claimed. Now they must be purchased from someone via the marketplace that's also embedded in the blockchain.
