Oveit announces partnership with deep-tech company Humans.ai

The partnership is the next step forward, as part of the company’s strategy to move towards Web 3.0 and the Metaverse by incorporating experiential digital art in the form of AI NFTs.

Oveit’s live stream shopping platform Streams.Live has also revolutionized the retail process for its clients in Europe and the United States in the past year, by changing the buying behavior. Online merchants have been able to connect much more authentically and in an interactive way with their target audience, using live online video sessions that simulate a personal experience.

Continuing to disrupt the live stream shopping experience, Oveit, which has become well known for its cashless payment solutions for events and venues, as well as solutions for access control and registration for virtual and live events, is developing new products to help its users stay connected by bridging online and in-person events with collectible tokens and creating experiential art with events tickets as AI NFTs, with the support of Humans.ai’s innovative technology.

“We believe the future of commerce is experiential and social. Artificial intelligence powered NFT ticketing for events will become the gateway to an unforgettable experience that now can be tokenized and held forever.”, said Mihai Dragan, COO at Oveit. “The AI NFT tickets will unlock more possibilities for Oveit, as we are rapidly moving towards Web 3.0 and the Metaverse with our solutions. Through our partnership with Humans.ai, event tickets will become so much more than just access codes. They will take the form of never before seen experiential digital art, in addition to ensuring access credentials and unique perks for events, empowering organizers to generate new revenue streams.” added Mihai Dragan.

Oveit’s AI NFT tickets will allow attendees access to both in-person and digital experiences, also holding special perks, created especially for events and a way of transforming unique moments into digital assets. The NFT tokenized tickets will enrich the experience with forever-lasting digital assets that will continue to bring in royalty long after the event is over.

“We are excited about working together with Oveit and helping them create, mint and sell AI NFTs as the next generation event tickets in the form of unique digital assets that can be used or sold through digital worlds, enriching their customers’ online experiences. The AI NFTs we are developing together will be much more than tokenized tickets, they will take the form of experiential art, allowing attendees access to both in-person and revolutionary digital experiences.”, said Sabin Dima, Humans.ai’s CEO.

Deep-tech company Humans.ai leverages blockchain technology and artificial intelligence to enhance the standard NFT and expand its functionality, transforming it from a static art form to an interactive and intelligent asset class capable of encapsulating neural networks or segments of a person’s digital DNA. The technology, named AI NFT, represents a new type of NFT that enables people to use their biometric data to create artificial intelligence solutions that are kept ethical by complex governance, consensus, and verification mechanism. Humans.ai’s unique consensus mechanism, Proof-of-Human, will be integrated to demonstrate there is a real human behind every transaction, making it more secure and trustworthy.

The first movie in the world released as NFT film frames

The Wishing Tree: Childhood Memories 

The Wishing Tree: Childhood Memories, a Romanian production directed by Andrei Huţuleac after a script by Mihai Mănescu, Matei Dima, and Andrei Huţuleac is the first feature movie in the world released as NFT film frames. The project is implemented by Oveit and Minternational Affairs. 

The Wishing Tree: Childhood Memories is the first Romanian fantasy family film released in the last 30 years in Romania. It is a film destined for the young ones, as well as for the whole family, with an immediate impact on the lives of those who suffer. The film, inspired by real events, tells the story of Mara and her friends, who set out on a fantastic adventure leading into the world of one of the most famous Romanian children’s books: Childhood Memories written by Ion Creangă. 

The movie will be released in Romanian theaters starting 25 March 2022. All the funds generated by the film will be donated to the HOSPICE Casa Speranţei (HOSPICE House of Hope) Foundation, the largest NGO in Romania, that’s offering free palliative care for adults and children suffering from an incurable illness. 

The Story of the World’s First Movie Released as NFT Film Frames

The collection is made out of 12.432 NFTs which are actual film frames from The Wishing Tree: Childhood Memories film. 12.432 is the number of home care visits made by the medical teams of HOSPICE Casa Speranţei in 2021. 

The cost of an NFT is the Ethereum (ETH) equivalent of 250 lei (≅ $56), a sum that represents the cost of a home care visit. 50% of the revenues will be donated to HOSPICE Casa Speranţei and their services. You can purchase the NFT and contribute to the help offered unconditionally to incurable ill children and adults by accessing https://oveit.com/copacul-dorintelor/

NFT stands for “Non-Fungible Token”. Goods can be fungible or non-fungible. Fungible goods are those which are determinable by number, measure, or weight so that they can be substituted for each other in the performance of an obligation. Money represents fungible goods. NFTs are non-fungible goods, i.e. individually determined goods that cannot be replaced by other goods. They are unique.

All NFT holders will be whitelisted for the next NFT collection, “Alpaca”, representing Mișu the (P)alpaca, the HOSPICE Casa Speranței mascot, a symbol of involvement, of small gestures that lead to a greater good and of good deeds done with a smile. We will also be announcing soon more benefits for NFT holders.

We’ve teamed with Polygon Studios to make NFT Tickets available to our community

Mint and sell NFT tickets with your favorite event ticketing platform

In our quest to democratize technology for event organizers, we’ve partnered with Polygon Studios and enabled NFT ticketing on our platform. While we handle the complicated part, our community can now easily mint and sell NFT tickets, completely changing the way attendees experience in-person and virtual events. 

Enter the era of unlimited possibilities with NFT Tickets

NFT (Non-fungible tokens) are blockchain-based digital records that can be associated with digital or physical goods (basically almost anything that we can imagine). And they rely on smart contracts – embedded programs that act like contracts for these NFTs and activate different options when certain conditions are met, allowing you to go full creative with your event tickets. 

Unlike traditional tickets, those leveraging blockchain technology can unlock outstanding experiences.

NFT tickets are improving the experience

Securely store access credentials and attendee information. On a blockchain network, transactions are encrypted and stored as immutable blocks – thus protecting you and your community against fraudsters.

Transform your tickets into hot collectibles. NFT tickets are stored on the blockchain, allowing users to easily check their authenticity and entire track record, thus making them the perfect assets for any collector. 

Tokenize (part of) the experience. Allow your special guests to actually own a part of the experience.

Enable perpetual royalties. Blockchain transactions are backed up by smart contracts, allowing you to set up special rules for future transactions. Eg: a small cut can find it’s way back to you each time tickets are resold.

Enable ticket add-ons on web3. Prepack additional perks into your tickets and let your attendees benefit from them long after your event is over (perpetual discounts to your future events, priority access to product launches run by your partners, VIP tickets to their favorite band, etc.).

and many more…

Polygon Studios X Oveit

The partnership between Oveit and Polygon Studios aims to simplify the selling of NFT Tickets. Until now, this option was cost-prohibitive. But with our solution, any event organizer or artist can mint and sell NFT tickets. Faster, at lower costs, and with no coding expertise required.

Blockchain’s impact on the environment is not something that should be overlooked. But we know we’ve teamed up with the right partner for the job. Polygon’s Proof of Stake consensus mechanism allows the Network to scale in an eco-friendly manner by not requiring the same computation power as mining blocks on networks that use a Proof of Work mechanism. We know this is important to you. 

About Polygon Studios

The Polygon Studios ecosystem comprises highly loved games and NFT projects like OpenSea, Upshot, Aavegotchi, Zed Run, Skyweaver by Horizon Games, Decentraland, Megacryptopolis, Neon District, Cometh, and Decentral Games. 

Is your work impacting the local community?

A few days ago I saw some news that reminded me of just how important events are. Not just for those directly involved, but for the local community as well.

The material covered the story of a small local community that for the last 30 years was on the verge of bankruptcy. Year after year, the local authorities did their best to bring the small town back to life. With 0 results.

Then, all of a sudden, things started to change. A team of event organizers found the area perfect for a small (at first) Jazz festival. Encouraged by the splendid landscape, they decided to give it a try.

“You are never going to make out here. You are wasting your time and your money”. I wasn’t there, but this is what they probably heard. 

I am sure that the team saw disbelieve in the eyes of the local inhabitants. Disbelieve mixed with hope. So they decided to follow their dreams. 

Gains for the local community

Fast forward to the present days: the community is thriving. One week per year, thousands of people set camp in this small community. Locals saw the opportunity and transformed their homes to accommodate their new guests. Restaurants and bars have never been so joyful. And local suppliers were facing a new problem: can they produce enough? For the first time in over 3 decades, the problem was too much demand.

This new economic life is not limited to just one week per year. People started hearing about this new town and its surroundings. And started visiting it. A friend of a friend that joined the festival is now a guest for the weekend. 

Tourists are spending money in the community. Local businesses prospered, and taxes were paid. Local authorities started investing money in infrastructure. Better roads, better facilities, more tourists. More money. The exact opposite of a vicious circle.

This is a true story, but the name of this small town is not relevant here. Because the same story happens over and over again, all over the world. You just need a brave idea and a community ready to embrace it. This is why we encourage you all to include the local community in your event economy.

Don’t stop making the world a better place!

How to start event registration for virtual or in-person events in 2021

Let’s say you want to start event registrations for your virtual or in-person event. You’ve decided to use an awesome event registration software, Oveit . But now the big question – how to start event registration?

First of all, thank you for choosing us. This is going to be as easy as it can get. At the end you will start registering visitors free of charge and receive payments in your account instantly.

If you need a video tutorial, we made one you can see below. Otherwise – keep on reading this post.

Let’s get started.

A checklist on how to start event registration

The first thing you will see when you start your account with Oveit is a short checklist with the things you need to do before starting registering visitors to your event.

It looks like this:

How to start event registration checklist
A checklist on how to start event registration with Oveit

There’s basically 3 things you need to do to start your event registration. They are the things you see above:

  1. Set up billing information: this is your company or individual details. Oveit is a special software that allows you to sell tickets directly to your customers. This means they will need to know who they’re buying things from. This is the section where you’ll be setting this information in. Don’t worry – you only set it once.
  2. Set up a payment processor: A payment processor is a company, like PayPal and Stripe that helps you receive payments instantly, directly into your account. If you have a PayPal, Stripe or Crypto account, this is where you set it up. This is a very important part of how to start event registration, if you’re planning to receive payments for your event.
  3. Create an event: This part is self-explanatory. You will have to enter some details about your event, like name and the date it takes place in, set up tickets and share the registration link with your potential visitors.

As you notice above, there’s a fourth step as well. This is the “select pricing plan”. By default, Oveit automatically registers you with the free event registration plan, which allows you to register up to 300 visitors per event, on an unlimited number of events, free of any Oveit charge. If you receive payments, you will be charged a commission by PayPal or Stripe.

If you checked all details above, you’re basically set and you know how to start event registration for all your next events.

However, Oveit is a powerful tool, with extensive options that allow you to create the perfect event. Let’s have a look at some of the most important ones:

Your dashboard

Once you’ve started your first event you will get access to your Dashboard. Here you will see an aggregate of all your ticket sales and registrations, once they start happening.

If you don’t have any events the first thing you should do is click on “Create event”

dashboard

How to start event registration: Your new event

Now, let’s move on to creating an actual event. You can either click on the button My events and you will be taken to the Event Management chart or you can click on Create an Event button and this will take you to the core part of Oveit.

myevents

You’ll see that creating an event is extremely easy. You have 4 main steps and two other ones in case you want to use two additional functions: Registration forms and Badge design (these are more advanced topics on how to start event registration).

How to start event registration steps

The first step is entitled General Settings. Here you set up general details on your event, things such as the event’s name, start and end date and where it takes place. By the way – if you host a virtual event – just add “Virtual” or “Online” in the Location/address input.

There’s several other things you can fill in. An example would be “No seating”. This means you will not have a seating map. If you need a seating map just choose “With seating” and find out here how to set up a seating chart.

You will need to add a start and end date for your event. If you’re selling tickets for a venue, such as a theme park that sells tickets all year round, just tick “Perpetual”. This will allow visitors to buy tickets whenever they feel like visiting you.

There’s several other more advanced features, such as registration forms or badges. If you need these, be sure to book a guided tour of these features.

Adding tickets to my event registration

Next steps on how to start event registration guide: tickets.

You can split the types of event registrations you will accept with different types of tickets. Oveit allows all sorts of discounts and addons with your ticket but you only need to know one thing. At its basics you will just need to add one ticket, free or paid and click “Save”. This takes you to a list where you can add more tickets by clicking “New ticket category”

Sometimes you may need a more advanced ticketing setup when you start event registration. If so – check out our post on advanced ticket types or contact us for a guided tour or more advanced features and benefits.

How to start event registration: checkout settings

checkout-page
Checkout settings – default options are usually left unchanged

There’s a lot of options on this page. Please don’t get confused. We’ve set up the page in such a way that our default check marks do the work for you. You can contact us if you need a more in-depth explanation or more advanced configuration.

Usually, what you want to customise is the follow up email subject and content. Basically your message to your future visitors:

Confirmation email on event registration

This is where you customise what your visitors will receive in their email after they registered.

Above you can see a chart with variables and their description. The computer-code looking things are tags you can use to personalise the email content. For example: if you’re holding a virtual event you can add [tickets_codes] in the email body to display the registration code your guests will use to access your virtual event.

Finally, you have the order confirmation page. Here you can opt to send a Thank you message that will be displayed after the customer has purchased the ticket or you can send him to a custom created URL on your website. To do that, just add the link and all is done.

How to preview your event registration

The final event registration setup step is the Preview section below:

How to start event registration and customise layout

Step no. 4 allows you to preview your registration widget prior to publishing it. You can play around with colors and fonts and brand the event registration according to your wishes.

Hit publish when you are ready to start registration and you will be taken to…

Payment processor integration

If you haven’t done so already, this is where you connect your payment processor. This is usually PayPal or Stripe. This way we can help you receive payments instantly. It’s very, very simple:

  • If you use PayPal: press Activate PayPal integration: In the next step you will add your PayPal email address and name. This helps Oveit to know where to send funds paid by your customers.
  • If you use Stripe: press “Activate Stripe integration”. This takes you to your Stripe account where you can check whether you want to safely accept payments with Oveit.

All of our transactions are handled by our partners (e.g. PayPal and Stripe). Your money or your customers payment data is never stored with us.

If you haven’t done so already, you will need to fill in your billing information. As you sell directly to your visitors, they will need to know who they’re buying from. Oveit issues invoices for all purchases on your behalf. Here’s what you need to fill in, only once, as you start selling:

If this is a bit too complicated when you start your event, just reach out to us and let’s set up a call where we can guide you through the setup process, step by step. One of our customer success staff will help you get everything set up.

Final step: Copy, paste and embed your event in your website

The last step: start your event registration. All you have to do now is get the event on your website and make it available to customers or point them to your event registration on Oveit. To do that, click on ‘My events’ in the bar, right near the Oveit logo. You will see a list of your events. You can start your registration in two ways:

  1. Point visitors to your event registration page on Oveit. Click the “Preview” link and share the URL with your visitors on social media or your website.
  2. Embed the registration on your website: you will notice that every event has an “</> Embed” button below it. Click on that button and you’ll find two embed codes (one available for light theme and one for dark theme – the theme refers to your website visual theme). Just copy the code you need and paste it on your website. The embed is responsive and works with most website management software so you won’t have any problems putting it on your website in just a couple of seconds.

And that’s it! You managed to start your event registration and start receiving event registrations. Now visitors can register, purchase tickets and attend your in-person or virtual event.
