Giving real value to the online marketing world AdCoin is primarly founded by people with economic and finance backgrounds.

  4. MetaX

    UNLOCKING THE BLOCKCHAIN FOR DIGITAL ADVERTISING MetaX is dedicated to building blockchain-based protocols and decentralized applications for the digital advertising industry

    Welcome! RushBitcoin offers the perfect solution for both advertisers to boost views/likes and sales in extremely reasonable conditions, as well as for internet-friendly users who like to earn bitcoin online, fast and simple!
  6. BasicAttentionToken BAT Website Whitepaper The Challenge Digital advertising is overrun by middlemen, trackers and fraud. Users are abused. Up to 50% of the average user’s mobile data is for ads and trackers, costing as much as $23 a month. Ads use about 5 seconds of mobile load time on average. Ads decrease phone battery life by as much as 21%. Privacy is violated when large media sites host up to 70 trackers. Malware (malvertisements, ransom-ware) is up 132% in one year. Blockchain Digital Advertising. Introducing a decentralized, transparent digital ad exchange based on Ethereum Blockchain. Stage 1: Brave Browser Brave is a fast, open source, privacy-focused browser that blocks malvertisements, trackers, and contains a ledger system that anonymously captures user attention to accurately reward publishers. Stage 2: Basic Attention Token The Basic Attention Token can be used to obtain a variety of advertising and attention-based services on the Brave platform, as it is exchanged between publishers, advertisers and users. The token’s utility is derived from — or denominated by — user attention. Attention is really just focused mental engagement — on an advertisement, in this case. Stages 1 + 2 = A New Deal The Brave browser knows where users spend their time, making it the perfect tool to calculate and reward publishers with BATs. This service creates a transparent and efficient Blockchain-based digital advertising market. Publishers receive more revenue because middlemen and fraud are reduced. Users, who opt in, receive fewer but better targeted ads that are less prone to malware. And advertisers get better data on their spending. How It Works The Brave browser anonymously monitors user attention, then rewards publishers accordingly with BATs. Measuring Attention Attention is measured as viewed for content and ads only in the browser’s active tab in real time. The Attention Value for the ad will be calculated based on incremental duration and pixels in view in proportion to relevant content, prior to any direct engagement with the ad. We will define further anonymous cost-per-action models as the system develops. Ads are then anonymously matched with customer interests using local machine learning algorithms. This means less irrelevant ads. Brave will work with publishers and advertisers to establish best practices for judging user attention. One potential metric: the number of total views of advertising content for a certain number of seconds. Or, points assigned on the length of a view. Who Gets What? Users viewing ads will be rewarded with BATs. BATs can be used for premium content or services on the Brave platform. Publishers will, as part of this service, receive the lion’s share of the total ad revenue spend. We anticipate the users will also donate back some tokens to the publishers, increasing their revenue. More Privacy, Less Fraud Users’ privacy is protected through the use of the ANONIZE algorithm. And ad fraud will be prevented or reduced by publication of source code and cryptographically secure transactions. Parts of the Solution are Code Complete Much of the infrastructure required to deploy BAT at the back end is “code complete,” meaning it’s currently in place and being used to distribute donations to publishers based on customer attention. This code will be leveraged to deploy BAT as soon as possible.
  7. Digital advertising is broken. It is a market filled with middlemen and fraudsters, hurting users, publishers and advertisers. The Basic Attention Token (BAT) was developed to address this. BAT, an ERC20 token built on top of Ethereum, will be the token of utility in a new, decentralized, open source and efficient blockchain-based digital advertising platform. In the ecosystem, advertisers will give publishers BATs based on the measured attention of users. Users will also receive some BATs for participating. They can donate them back to publishers or use them on the platform. This transparent system keeps user data private while delivering fewer but more relevant ads. Publishers experience less fraud while increasing their percentage of rewards. And advertisers get better reporting and performance. The first part of the solution, the Brave browser, is already operational. Brave is a fast, open source, privacy-focused browser that blocks ads and trackers, and contains a ledger system that anonymously measures user attention aggregate to accurately reward publishers. The next step is introducing BAT.

  11. Dear Gridcoiners, we have been contacted by Elissa via Facebook to talk about a cooperation with the browsergame . I think it is a great chance to get in touch with a new commmunity and activate new channels of distributing our idea of what cryptocurrency should look like. The facts so far: We are talking about a one time payment of 1000 GRC. Here is the chatlog: I am not asking of whether we should take this chance, I will donate the 1000 GRC myself, but maybe we find other possibilities for cooperation, like a steady stream of GRC flowing to their users. Maybe a kind of ingame currency? I am just swapping around ideas. Kind Regards, Quez

  14. The Advertising Engine To Drive Marketing Into the Future A new approach to marketing called Programmatic advertising helps automate the decision-making process of media buying by targeting specific audiences and demographics. Programmatic ads are placed using artificial intelligence (AI) and real-time bidding (RTB) for online display, social media advertising, mobile and video campaigns, and is expanding to traditional TV advertising marketplaces. Nearly all stakeholders including strategists, planners, buyers and operational teams across the digital ecosystem are embracing programmatic advertising and building on its potential for value creation. With only 13% of advertisers, 8% of publishers and 7% of media agencies claiming that they are not using programmatic technology, the study shows that almost everybody in the industry is now deploying some form of programmatic advertising. hubDSP is a demand-side platform (DSP), system that allows buyers of digital advertising inventory to manage multiple ad exchange and data exchange accounts through one interface. Real-time bidding for displaying online advertising takes place within the ad exchanges, and by utilizing a DSP, marketers can manage their bids for the banners and the pricing for the data that they are layering on to target their audiences. What’s more, hubDSP is the first demand-side platform giving a special focus and attention to the crypto advertisers and their ever increasing in size audience, demand-side platform - is the new word in crypto-advertising.

  15. Speaking of which, instead of advertising, pixel “owners” can set their own prices if they are looking to resell their spots. As more advertising space is sold, the demand for pixels may continue to go up. That would be an opportune time to sell some remaining pixels, and eventually make a profit while doing so. This platform creates quite an attractive investment model that embraces decentralized technology at every turn.

  17. Bitcoin super-team creates MASS: Blockchain-based solution to online advertising inequity Consumer disaffection with irrelevant and obtrusive ads has resulted in the rapid growth of ad-blocker adoption.This fact is making data-tracking nearly useless and threatens the entire online advertising business model as a result. The industry’s current solution is an arms race of anti-blockers versus anti-anti-blockers and in some cases alliances with the ad-blockers, themselves. This inefficient counter-productivity inevitably leads to a dead-end. To solve this problem, ad industry and Blockchain experts have combined efforts to create The Mass Network—a Blockchain-based solution aimed at fixing the imbalance of power between the online advertising industry and internet users who unwittingly provide the ad machine its revenue source: data. Mass users benefit from contributions by Colu (assets protocol) and Mycelium (wallet component). Two other top Bitcoin giants are also in talks about how they can best contribute to Mass. The Mass proposition is to exchange this wasteful battle for a mutually beneficial, proactive commerce by creating a Blockchain-based marketplace for consumers, webmasters, and data management platforms. Here, the industry pays a fair, market-determined rate to users for their data and attention. This voluntarily provided user information exchanged for compensation presents truly valuable data to the industry when compared to the current ill-gotten and often misinterpreted data harvested at present. To power this network and to create a stable method of exchange Mass will release Mass Coin to the public via a one-time only offering. Once live, average internet users within the system will be paid Mass Coin in exchange for their attention. Mass Coin lives on the Blockchain. It has the same transparency, fluidity, and security of Bitcoin without the dramatic price volatility. Mass paves a way to the monetization of our everyday online experience while improving consumers’ attitudes toward brands, publishers and making advertising more efficient to the benefit of all parties involved. In a world where people's lives are becoming more and more digitized Mass provides a safeguard from exploitation by improving access, integrity, and trust. To learn more please visit

  19. Hi all, I wonder what we can do to advertise gridcoin? I've been using Boinc (on and off) for a decade and i saw reference to gridcoin by accident, I mean not a real advert. And month later i am hooked! I live in Israel and i bought and also opened a local Facebook page in Hebrew. I've been looking at the stats ( and i wonder if there is a way to send messages and invates through the stats websites? All the users are listed anyway. As desktop's are rare in our days i think that Boinc projects are suffering, gridcoin is a great opportunity for everybody to gain. Any ideas? Daniel

  21. Brave, a new open source internet browser, was made to compete with the likes of Firefox, Chrome, and Opera, but does away with the existing advertising economy, replacing it with a new one that works quite differently, running on Bitcoin. “The new Brave browser blocks all the greed and ugliness on the Web that slows you down and invades your privacy. Then we put clean ads back, to fund website owners and Brave users alike. Users can spend their funds to go ad-free on their favorite sites.“ - Brave Software Brave co-founder, Brendan Eich, wrote JavaScript for the Netscape Navigator Web browser in April 1995, while working at Netscape Communications. He went on to co-found the Mozilla project, the Mozilla Foundation, and the Mozilla Corporation, serving as the chief technical officer and CEO. He currently serves as Brave Softwares CEO and president. Read More

  25. Backpage hosts online classifieds, much like the ever popular Craiglist, and is the second largest provider of this service in the US. On the site people buy and sell items such as furniture, cars and other items. However, the site has come under fire for its adult service section. The site became the market leader in adult service advertising after Craigslist was pressed into shutting down its adult division in 2010. Backpage became the new go-to for the sex trade, and it did not go unnoticed. Read the full article on BNC News here
