What is AdsDax?

A decentralised ecosystem for rich-media advertising

A blockchain-enabled marketplace to create, verify, optimise, buy and sell advertising at low fees powered by its own cryptocurrency, the OYou Token.

AdsDax aims to be the first platform that can be used by anyone to design develop and create a blockchain-backed rich-media ad campaign that can be fulfilled by publishers and consumers without the need for any middlemen and with full transparency and real-time payment to the publishers who provided the ad space, masternodes who provided delivery services and consumers who engaged with the ad.

An ecosystem for everyone

The AdsDax Vision

The AdsDax vision is a future where advertisers have direct, secure, transparent and permission-based access to deliver adverts to consumers who are rewarded with OYou tokens for their time and data sharing.

We are aiming to reinvent digital advertising – from the ground up using crypto economic models to incentivise participants to drive decentralisation and consumer uptake of an opt-in advertising platform – without any middlemen.

Operating at the intersection of an ecosystem

A Unified Marketplace

AdsDax brings the key elements of the advertising ecosystem into a unified platform and improves them through distrivuted ledger technologies.

Combining rich-media advertising with the security, transparency and immutability of blockchain technology, AdsDax can provide a fair and open ecosystem that removes the need for middlemen and fixes key issues in the advertising industry.

The addition of incentivised nano-payments means that consumers can now be suitably rewarded for their participation in the advertising process and can control how their data is used.

For developers and creatives AdsDax provides a new entry point to contribute work and earn money within the ad industry.

The Evolution

Blockchain Marketplaces

Cryptocurrency has evolved from a simple form of electronic cash to a distributed ledger-driven store of value.

When Smart Contract protocols were introduced to the world, they offered a new method to facilitate the transfer of value between cryptocurrency users in a secure manner without the need for costly 3rd parties.

AdsDax believes that the next stage of this evolution is the adoption of blockchain-enabled marketplaces which allow participants to access services in a secure, transparent and immediate fashion that bypasses large swathes of the product delivery pipeline to reduce costs and open up the market to more participants.

How the Ecosystem operates

The AdsDax Process

Advertisers add campaigns to AdsDax

An advertiser creates a new ad campaign in the AdsDax self-serve platform. The advertiser can upload their own creative assets or utilise the creative studio to create assets for their campaign. As well as creating a campaign, advertisers add OYou to their AdsDax Wallet, to fund the delivery of the campaign.

Valid, brand-safe ad Inventory is identified

When a consumer hits a webpage within the AdsDax publisher network, the AdsDax ADK loads and begins the advertising process. This page impression is measured by Argus Ad Shield, AdsDax's proprietary ad security module, which protects brands against general and sophisticated invalid traffic and unsafe ad inventory.

Optimised Ad Selection

AdsDax leverages its Demeter Yield Engine, a machine learning driven ad optimisation tool, to select the most appropriate advert for that particular consumer within the current context of the impression. This allows AdsDax to dramatically improve user experience by providing more relevant ads as well as reducing the amount of ad impressions needed to create a conversion for advertisers.

Distributed ad delivery

AdsDax is built on a proprietary ad-delivery tech stack, designed for the sole purpose of delivering, tracking and executing video, display & HTML5 ad creative seamlessly across any screen in any geo, including on proxy devices and legacy phones. AdsDax intends to expand its CDN-backed delivery network to include several masternodes, increasing the distribution, speed and availability of ad assets and tracking.

Blockchain-powered tracking & payments

When a payable event occurs within the advert (such as an impression, video view or clickthrough) it is logged to the AdsDax ledger. This triggers the payment of OYou from advertisers to publishers, masternodes, AdsDax and most importantly, consumers, who can finally be rewarded for their participation within the ecosystem.
