AdMine Launches Pre-ICO in a Bid to Disrupt the Online Advertising Industry

AdMine Launches Pre-ICO in a Bid to Disrupt the Online Advertising Industry

As part of the fundraising campaign for the development of the new AdMine project, the company has announced the launch of an ICO presale, giving early investors the chance to purchase tokens at a favorable rate and take advantage of the limited-time bonus scheme. Based on the widely-adopted ERC-20 token standard, the limited quantity MediaCoins will serve as an internal cryptocurrency for the AdMine platform upon its launch in mid-2018.

What is AdMine?

Billing itself as the “World’s First Social Network of Brands,” AdMine is an innovative new platform that aims to transform traditional online advertising and fully and effectively utilize the potential of the industry. The project is designed to benefit all participants of online advertising campaigns, serving the interests of both content consumers and brands. The platform compensates users for viewing ads while vastly increasing the effectiveness of digital campaigns for companies.

The team behind AdMine has combined their rich experience in the advertising industry and technical expertise to create a first-of-its-kind product that unites the interests of audiences and advertisers, assuring mutual benefit to all involved. The blockchain-based system ensures full protection of personal data and payment transactions, while providing precise but anonymous analytical and performance data to advertisers.

Benefits for Users

AdMine users receive coins for viewing ads or participating in market research or product testing. Users can view only those ads which they are interested in by subscribing to their favorite brands and specifying product preferences. This ensures maximum engagement and relevance, and hence also providing the most effective return to advertisers. Users receive coins directly from the advertisers for completing tasks and ad viewing, which can in turn be used to shop online, withdrawn, or exchanged for other cryptocurrencies.

In order to incentivize users to complete a more thorough demographic profile, tokens are credited for every additional bit of personal info given. AdMine does not transfer or disclose any personal data to third parties. User matching and audience selection is carried out by automated smart contracts which have exclusive access to user data, ensuring full confidentiality for all system users.

Benefits for Advertisers

AdMine is the first system of its kind to give advertisers the power to target audiences across the entire system of participating platforms. Advertisers can filter based on a myriad of demographic characteristics and parameters, thus always reaching the most-relevant and accessible audience. AdMine gives advertisers the most cost-effective outreach solution by allowing them to determine the price they are willing to pay for each viewing or task, so campaigns of all budgets are possible.

Additionally, AdMine provides companies unique opportunities for the performance of various tasks such as market research through subscriber surveys, app and game testing, quality assurance, and more through its intelligent audience matching mechanism.

How AdMine Works

At its core, the system is based on blockchain technology, taking full advantage of blockchain’s unique properties of decentralization, accountability and security. All procedures and calculations are done directly within the encrypted system, foregoing the need for any costly intermediaries. The use of smart contracts provides an equitable framework and guarantees the security and fault tolerance of the system as a whole.

The AdMine system works with any browser, search engine, application or game, and every site or application owner can connect to the system for free. Advertising applications can also freely use the API, allowing them to sell all unsold traffic and partake in CPA-targeted advertising.

ICO Structure

As part of its ICO, AdMine will release MediaCoin tokens based on the ERC-20 standard. Tokens will be produced in a limited number of 100,000,000, without the possibility of any subsequent issue. At the end of the ICO, all tokens will be distributed among investors, and any unsold tokens will be liquidated. This limited-release approach will ensure the absence of any inflation within the system, and assure a rise in token value.

All settlements within the system will be made through MediaTokens using an internal payment mechanism that is independent of external currencies or quotations. Tokens are purchased by system participants as a payment method within the system, or for their future exchange for other cryptocurrencies.

Investors will be able to sell their tokens to new participants, and also see in real time how they are being used within the entire ecosystem. AdMine will automatically redeem tokens from investors anytime a user purchases the internal currency (MediaCoin) by generating an order on the exchange.

What is Ardor Coin

In the past few weeks, Ardor has been attracting more attention from the blockchain community.

So what is Ardor, in simple terms?

http://coinsmoon.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/AAEAAQAAAAAAAAnFAAAAJDQ0YTQxM2Y1LTZiMTAtNDE2YS04NTEwLWEyZWExMmEyMjlhZA.png

Ardor is a blockchain ecosystem

As you can read on the website, the Ardor platform is much more than a cryptocurrency. It is a platform that will become the backbone of a powerful ecosystem, including a large number of assets, currencies, and most importantly child chains.

What problems does it solve?

The unique architecture of Ardor solves two problems:

1. It provides an elegant solution to scaling issues

A blockchain is a ‘continuously growing list of records’.

As a blockchain keeps growing, eventually, the file size becomes huge, and it becomes harder to download, synchronize and manage.

The Ardor platform is not one blockchain, but several blockchains.

There is:

  • The main chain, also known as the parent chain, Ardor. Its main function is to provide security for the network. It does not have many features. This is a good thing because it will always be lightweight and fast.
  • Child chains, such as Ignis, have all the features (such as decentralized asset exchange, monetary system, voting system, marketplace, etc).

In the future, it will be possible to add many child chains for special purposes, like ERC20 tokens in the Ethereum ecosystem.

Because of this unique architecture, the Ardor blockchain will be able to grow in a sustainable way for many years.

2. It is easy to customize for businesses

The Ardor platform is a ‘Blockchain-as-a-Service’ solution.

It does not target consumers, but businesses.

Businesses will require blockchains for various purposes. All they really want is something that is ready to install and implement. In fact, Ardor has many relevant features already available out-of-the-box.

Therefore, a company will not need to code all applications from scratch, which would create severe security risks if their development team is not fully experienced in blockchain technologies.

In other words, what Ardor will eventually do for the blockchain is similar to what WordPress did for website development.

Although, you could try and code a new website from scratch, or hire a developper to do so, there are many reasons to use the proven building blocks provided by WordPress to achieve the same goals easily.

To conclude, Ardor is a scalable blockchain ecosystem that will prove to be a simple, reliable and secure way for businesses and organizations to use the blockchain for their various needs.

Soma revolutionize the C2C-market over Ethereum blockchain based on Soma Community Token (SCT)

Soma, an Ethereum blockchain based platform aiming for creating a C2C-market that facilitates the social interaction between the users of the trading community, has began its pre-sale for the Soma Community Token.

The blockchain-based platform utilizes smart contracts to enable its users to create Interactive Item Cards to leverage the social contribution of the attractive digital content, thus increasing the social value of the physical item. Interactive Item Cards can be seen as a digital representations of the physical items where important data can be preserved in the blockchain, such as information about the history, quality and price fluctuation.

 

Interactive Item Card is a patent-pending feature that is adopted among the other features of the Soma Community. As a decentralized platform, Soma incentivizes its community members to engage in cooperation to facilitate its organic expansion through Soma Rewarding System. Soma Rewarding System provides an ability and incentive for the members of the decentralized community to act as a value-adding actors in the chain of transactions, such as promoting item cards for the correct audience and perform the role of a escrow agent to secure a transaction.

How the Soma ecosystem works

The Interactive Item Card allows anyone to create a item card that starts to accumulate social value through various different social interactions from the members of the decentralized community. Once the item card is created, it can be transferred among the transaction of the physical item from the seller to a buyer inside the Soma platform. Thus, the social value accumulated in the item card can reflected in the value of the physical item. Soma Community Token ensures that such value is rewarded to the owner of the item card as it monetizes the social wealth within the community. The Interactive Item Card may be invaluable feature for the growing vintage, art and handcraft industry. Interactive Item Card is a patent-pending feature.

Soma Rewarding System acts as a central mechanism for the decentralized marketplace. It incentivizes the members of the community to perform services that upholds the smooth and efficient functioning of the Soma Community, thus bolstering the platforms growth. The members of the community can promote IIC’s that are created by other users and earn SCT as a reward for such promotion.

Additionally, users can earn SCT by acting as a trusted third party in a transaction between a seller and a buyer, securing the interests of the both parties.

All information in the Interactive Item Cards are recorded on the Ethereum blockchain and smart contracts govern the trading process, thus promoting transparency and eliminating the need for a trusted third parties or a centralized governance.

The Soma Community Token crowdsale participants will receive their SCT immediately after the contribution to their ERC20 supported Ethereum Wallet. These tokens can then be used as a currency for services performed by Soma as well as other service providers in the Soma ecosystem.
