Isobar partners with AdsDax to put rich media ads on the blockchain

Feb 11 · 2 min read

AdsDax provides the platform for Isobar India to run their first blockchain-enabled rich-media ad campaign in a bid to test the viability and interoperability of Distributed Ledger Technologies for advertising.

AdsDax, a revolutionary, blockchain-enabled, end-to-end rich-media advertising platform has partnered with Isobar India, the digital agency from Dentsu Aegis Network, to test distributed ledger technologies and measure the impact of running ad campaigns at scale on a public ledger from a technical and business perspective.

Over 6.4 million operations added to a blockchain

The first campaign, delivered over four weeks in January and February 2019, promoted one of Isobar’s biggest auto industry brands, CEAT Tyres, via large video banner mobile adverts delivered to consumers on mobile devices from the AdsDax platform. The campaign received 2,668,000+ ad impressions that were recorded to a public ledger, providing immediate and transparent access to events in the campaign as they unfolded, resulting in over 6.4 million operational transactions.

For AdsDax the ability to leverage blockchain technology comes as an expansion to their existing rich-media advertising platform. AdsDax is currently rolling out the blockchain live MVP element of their platform to select partners in the industry to understand how we may apply the new technologies and explore opportunities for improving the advertising ecosystem.

A game changer for the ad industry

Speaking about the successful test, CEO Ian Mullins stated: “Distributed Ledger technology is a game-changer for the ad tech industry and will ultimately lead to greater efficiencies for advertisers and agencies. We’ve hit the biggest milestone in the industry so far — we have a live, end-to-end scalable solution for blockchain-tracked rich-media ad campaigns. We’ve proved with Isobar we can deliver advertising on a blockchain at scale. We’ve been partners with Isobar for many years but we are delighted not only to bring amazing interactive creative formats and engaged audiences to their brands but now insight, analysis, and opportunities from Distributed Ledger Technologies.”

Discussing the technology, AdsDax CPO Ryan Davies stated: “We’ve been looking at blockchain & DLT and assessing their potential to solve the inherent problems with the ad industry since 2017. Blockchain is an incipient technology and there is still progress to be made by many blockchain protocols, however, this test has shown significant progress towards a blockchain solution for advertising with enough resilience and efficiency to handle the sheer amount of data generated during the advertising process, and at a low-enough cost to make it commercially viable.”
