Passage Protocol, a software firm that develops enterprise-grade tools for consumer-facing brands, has partnered with CoinDesk to offer an exclusive multi-year digital ticket to Consensus 2023-2025. Known as Microcosms, this layered digital access includes a unique generative art piece by Art Blocks curated artist Fahad Karim and a multi-tiered holder rewards system that offers a speaking slot on stage, a booth on the show floor, and meetings with leading Web3 venture capitalists. The Microcosms Pass is different from traditional event tickets as it unlocks new rewards every year, creating a new kind of membership and relationship with its most loyal members. Microcosms Pro Pass holders have already received airdropped rewards, including a CoinDesk Media Buy worth $10,000 USD, entry to private events, exclusive merchandise, and a signed NFT by Karim.

Passage Protocol’s TOLLBOOTH enables recurring payments through credit cards and cryptocurrencies to support subscription-based models, and it also allows for the collection of data and insights for targeted marketing and on-chain rewards and incentives. The company is also preparing to launch three no-code offerings:, which will offer on-chain incentive and rewards mechanics; Freestyle, which will enable free customizable membership NFTs; and Drillbit, a behavioral analytics tool for tokens. These tools will facilitate innovation and make it easier to create and manage new, more sophisticated Web3 membership use cases. In addition to CoinDesk’s Consensus, Passage Protocol has previously powered loyalty and data backends for multiple live events, including Admit One 9dcc during Art Blocks x Art Basel 2023 and Deca’s membership generative art NFTs. Passage Protocol’s Microcosms offers a comprehensive and multi-tiered reward system that unlocks new benefits for holders year-after-year, setting the stage for a new kind of membership and relationship with holders. CoinDesk’s Consensus Pass marks a new era of projects doing more for holders programmatically beyond the static token, and Passage’s products power innovation by making new, more sophisticated Web3 membership use cases easier to create and manage. Consensus 2023 is a three-day event taking place in Austin, Texas from April 26-28. The event will feature content across more than 10 stages and workshops covering topics such as crypto, blockchain, Web3, the metaverse, and A.I. The event will also include networking events, parties, live music, and experiential activations.
