If anyone is paying attention to the crypto currency markets right now you’re probably at least interested in the amount of growth it’s seen in the last few months. Some still think it’s all a big scam, but in my opinion, the growth and traction crypto has seen shouldn’t be ignored any longer.
Imagine a mine-able coin that could get small mom & pop resorts the capital to invest in proper upgrades. It could be similar to Vertcoin (https://vertcoin.org/) in that it would be ASIC-proof and mine-able with consumer grade hardware. A kid with a gaming PC could help pay for his next year’s gear by mining while it’s not in use. A resort with a few mining rigs set up to a small solar grid might be able to mine enough for a new snow cat. Who knows how far it could go.
Media/Content Creators/Athletes/Manufacturers/Resorts (sponsorz)
Winter sports media conglomerates like The Enthusiast Network could integrate a coin platform similar in function to Tron (https://tron.network/). Right now, Tron is still in its infancy but the idea is to create a global platform for media distribution. Think of a coin that could directly coincide with ways to cut checks to athletes and pay for services within the industry.
Checks cut on the basis of the content they create. Token value based on PROOF of engagement. Transactions taking place between vendors that are instant and have incentives to be paid on time. The faster money moves the faster its value can be converted to real world solutions.
Ticket Sales/Resort Pass Partnerships/Travel/Hospitality
A coin similar in function to Ripple (https://ripple.com/) or Stellar/Lumens (https://www.stellar.org/) A token with ultra-fast transaction speeds associated with the price of dynamic ticket sales, room rates, etc.. Kinda like Liftopia has been toying with. Meaning ticket prices relative to the volume of guests expected that day. Wanna go skiing at Whistler during Christmas? Fork over the coin! Buy things a year out and you could save a ton. It works for products like the Epic Pass and Mountain Collective.
The entire ski industry is covered in cobwebs. Old people who either have no interest in adapting or are just too disconnected to see what’s going on around them. Sponsors are dropping events left and right, companies are cutting discounts and incentives across the board it seems. The industry as a whole needs to be proactive in finding new solutions to these compounding issues sooner rather than later.
On that note, who will be the first ski company to sell skis for crypto. I’m here waiting as soon as you are :)
