We are delighted to announce a new ADX incentive program (a.k.a farm) for liquidity providers: over 2 million ADX will be distributed to people who supply liquidity on the Balancer ADX/yUDS pool, Uniswap ADX/ETH pool and other community requested pools.

The program starts at around 16:40:00 UTC on Friday, Nov 20, 2020 (Ethereum block 11296000) and will last approximately for 30 days until Sunday, December 20, 2020.

The main incentivized pools are:

It’s important to note that AdEx Network will not be participating in ADX farming as a company. Instead, we have transferred all liquidity pool tokens (LP) we hold to our multisig, so the community can verify we are not using them for farming. …


We’ve reached a big milestone: our decentralized governance system that lets ADX token holders to participate in important decisions for our future.

At AdEx Network, we’re committed to building the future of advertising: over the last couple of years, we’ve gone to market with the first ad network where payments are decentralized, running on Ethereum payment channels.

Today, we’ve reached a new milestone in our development — officially unveiling our decentralized governance system, which enables our community and ADX token holders to participate in important decisions for our future.

It’s based on Snapshot, a novel off-chain gasless governance portal, and it’s using our new governance token, ADX-LOYALTY, which is minted by participating in the loyalty pool.

The first proposal: Deciding the ADX incentive for the Tom pool

The first proposal is about the ADX incentives for the Tom pool — and more specifically the amount of ADX to be distributed to stakers during 2021. …

The Challenge

Online casinos are heavily restrained when it comes to advertising with most ad networks limiting their advertising reach. Regulation on advertising online gaming varies from country to country and that poses an additional challenge for putting up online ads. To avoid the hassle, most traditional advertising networks bank gambling clients altogether; this leaves online gaming providers very limited options for reaching new audiences.

This is the reason why most online casinos are turning to alternative means of advertising, such as partnerships and affiliate programs, through which they can get a higher conversion rate. …

In August this year, we announced our upcoming integration with Chainlink for validator uptime verification and publisher staking. Both the AdEx and Chainlink teams are working on implementing these integrations, however, in the meantime we are going live on mainnet with an AdEx staking pool that uses a Chainlink-powered ADX-USD price oracle for a novel DeFi concept we call elastic issuance.

Following our major token upgrade earlier this year, we announced a number of changes to the AdEx staking portal planned for Q3 of 2020. We are happy to confirm that the user interface changes have been successfully completed!

✅ Brand new look for the staking portal

We gave the staking portal a sleek new look — aside from a number of new features we’ll expand on in a bit. Now you can find the most important information at a glance: the current APY, your full ADX balance, the total staked amount (for you and between all stakers), your rewards, etc.

There’s also a new staking homepage. There you can see the ADX rewards being distributed in real time. You can also use the reward calculator: it’s handy to calculate your estimated reward based on how many ADX tokens you plan to stake and for how long. …

We have great news for ADX holders!

Between May 01, 2020 and October 05, 2020, we bought back a total of approximately 6 million ADX tokens using funds from the AdEx treasury.

Inspired by the buyback-and-make model, we decided to utilize these funds on public liquidity pools such as Uniswap and Balancer instead of using them for staking or governance.

The buyback was executed OTC (1,810,010 ADX), and on Binance and Huobi using only limit maker orders to ensure there’s no sudden impact on the price. The weighted average purchase price was under $0.16.

All ADX bought back were transferred to adx-buyback.eth. One million ADX together with the corresponding amount of ETH was already added as liquidity on Uniswap and the LP tokens were transferred to our multisig. …
