1. What is the Topic You Can Write About in the #WhatIsAdshares Contest and Giveaway?

Write about anything related to the Adshares and it's ecosystem. 

You can write anything about Adshares ($ADS), the first web3 decentralized advertising protocol. Just as bitcoin has been adopted in financial markets as an alternative to centralized finance, a similar evolution is already beginning in the advertising industry. Let’s imagine a world of transparent advertising given to the community, without abusive central entities.

DYOR about Adshares (see below for details) advertising ecosystem and write about:

  • Overview of Adshares and it's ecosystem.
  • What are the benefits of decentralizing advertising networks (Adservers)?
  • Ad network DAOs governance.
  • Decentralized advertising VS Facebook in case of metaverse ads.
  • You can also think about the future: What ad formats can we design inside Metaverse.
  • How can a protocol for advertising like Adshares be implemented to help monetize the Metaverse and games ecosystem?
  • Why is there a need for decentralization and how blockchain will change marketing forever?

$ADS web3 advertising protocol can be used for websites, games, NFT galleries or Metaverse and holders are getting automatic rewards when the network is growing.

Look at the Adshares website, check Adshares on social media and the active Telegram group, and don't forget to read thoughtful articles found in the blog. You can also use one of the decentralized ad networks, adaround.net, or ask to join web3ads.net.

Sounds Great! What Exactly is Adshares (ADS)?


Welcome to a 100% decentralized advertisement marketplace and the first major real time bidding (RTB) successor. Adshares is a decentralized auction protocol designed for advertising. It utilizes offline auctions and micropayments in $ADS cryptocurrency to enable competitive pricing of ad space.

  • AdShares are the pioneers of AdTech industry.
  • Adshares is the first 100% decentralized marketplace for programmatic advertising, also being one of the most advanced blockchain-based projects in the advertising market. The network uses its own, unique blockchain to connect publishers and advertisers allowing them to make direct deals.
  • Adshares offers CPM, CPA, popup and popunder campaigns along with some clever AdBlock bypass technology that that allows advertisers to reach more clients and publishers to earn more.
  • Due to our background, the network specializes in crypto and blockchain advertising, but can also help you reach audiences in many other niches.

Note: Since there is no requirement of a minimum deposit, Adshares is very popular amongst small and medium advertisers.

Adshares protocol is now powering network of adservers that provide monetization of ad space for web apps. The network is handling over 6 million ad views per day. Auction protocol is impartial to type of ad inventory being sold. Thanks to that, our decentralized auction protocol can also be used in other domains of marketing, like inside metaverse.

Adshares competes with GoogleAds in order to decentralise the advertising market. Adshare’s goal is to utilize NFTs in order to help projects with marketing in the Metaverse. With Facebook’s rebranding to Meta, they now see that the Metaverse trend will only get bigger.

It’s quite possible that Facebook will also display ads in its Metaverse. Adshares mission is to display ads or even art everywhere else, in all different kinds of Metaverses. Naturally, in a decentralized way to eliminate 3rd parties which collect a tremendous amount of fees from Publishers and Advertisers.
