AdSigma challenges the need for Google, Facebook and other Ad Networks and launches ADSi tokens


It has become essential for businesses to have an online presence in order expand beyond its local territory. However, mere online presence is not enough for most of the businesses who seek to target the audience worldwide. An appropriate online marketing strategy is necessary as well. The online advertising gives convenience to the advertisers to reach potential customers. Also, it works as the primary or in some case the only source of revenue for many publishers or hosts of websites.

However, it can be said that the online advertising structure is not working with its real potential and it is not providing the adequate benefits to the advertisers and publishers, who play the lead roles in the industry. This inefficiency is a cause of multiple disadvantages and shortcomings of the current market structure.

The advertising networks slice out over 40% share ($227.8 billion) of the total online advertising spending ($534.79 billion). The two most popular advertising networks, Google and Facebook dominate the market with over 45% combined share of the total digital ad revenue of the ad networks. This reduces the revenue of publishers drastically and leads to an increase in the cost to the advertisers.

Along with the high commission, the ad networks place some pricing restrictions. Due to the presence of a middleman, there is no direct communication between a publisher and an advertiser, and hence they cannot negotiate with each other for the desired price.

Some of the ad networks give the option to select the type or category of the advertisement that a publisher wants to be displayed on his/her website. However, one cannot pick the advertiser he/she desires. An agent is solely responsible for the selection of an appropriate advertiser and advertising for the publisher’s ad space. Often, there is no payment flexibility to the advertiser. Also, there is a minimum withdrawal limit for the publishers, due to which, he/she cannot withdraw the funds instantly.

Many times, ads are displayed in places where they are not much effective or are irrelevant. Moreover, some advertisements don’t meet the standards of the publishers’ webpage/website. Also, many times ads are displayed alongside inappropriate content, or inappropriate ads are displayed on the publisher’s property. This leads to poor conversion rates as well as reduced brand value.

Most of the ad networks have a small, prescribed list of payment options for the advertisers. The advertisers are compelled to pay in certain fiat currencies like dollars and through bank accounts or debit/credit cards. This leads to lack of flexibility in the hands of the advertisers.

All of these put high-quality creators at a financial disadvantage, and favours publishers of cheap media: fake news, propaganda and conspiracy theories, quickly re-written stories with sensationalistic spin, shady offshore content farms, algorithmically generated content, and pirated videos. Hence, there is a need to change the way market works currently and to replace the advertising networks.
