Open-source, transparent & fraud-proof display advertising
AdEx is trust-minimized solution for digital advertising that reduces ad fraud, improves ad budgets and protects user privacy.
The AdEx platform is built on the Ethereum blockchain to connect publishers and advertisers without intermediaries on a decentralized ad exchange. We introduce real-time reporting for both parties and enable payments per impression with no withdrawal threshold for publishers.
Moreover, AdEx Network is built with full respect towards end users’ data - we don’t store any.

Advertisers, Publishers and Real People - nothing less, nothing more
We created AdEx because we realized that the ad tech industry failed to offer truly open source, transparent and fraud-proof ad networks. We decided to challenge the status quo. First, we connected advertisers and publishers directly, dropping the need for most intermediaries. Then we added real-time reporting, dramatically reducing the ability for any side to report wrong data to others for their own financial gain.
We value the privacy of individuals and AdEx has been designed with that in mind. No end user data will ever be uploaded to AdEx servers and paired with data from other sources.
In an easy-to-use, self-serve environment advertisers can choose between the most commonly used display ad formats, submit their creative and start a campaign. Through real-time reporting advertisers are in control of their ads 24/7 and can spot suspicious or low quality traffic before it’s too late.
Integrating AdEx into any website or app is super easy and surprisingly fast. Publishers on the AdEx platform see real-time stats about the revenue they’re earning, and are in full control what types of ads are being shown. Our tech empowers publishers to receive instant payments each time an ad has been served on their inventory.
Okay, a lot more under the hood:
The superb technology behind AdEx
The AdEx Protocol
The AdEx platform runs on the Ethereum implementation of an open-source protocol for decentralized digital advertising called the AdEx Protocol. The technology behind AdEx combines traditional peer-to-peer tech, cryptography and blockchain. It is blockchain-agnostic, coin-agnostic and 100% open source.
Scaling transaction volume is not an issue for AdEx Network thanks to our payment channels solution which allows small payments for each individual impression - a unique benefit for advertisers and publishers on the platform.
Crypto volatility solved
The AdEx platform runs using two cryptocurrencies - the ADX token and the DAI stablecoin. Frequent price fluctuations are a concern for using crypto for standard business payments, so we implemented the DAI stablecoin as payment method between advertisers and publishers on the platform. The ADX token is vital for running validator nodes on the AdEx network.
