Developed by community

Adshares is not a closed project. Everyone who wants to contribute to a decentralized future of AdTech can create new or improve existing modules.

The transition to the mainstream will happen largely through partnerships with top AdTech companies who seek for innovations. Other companies such as DSP/SSP providers, existing ad networks integrated to the protocol one by one will slowly make Adshares the global standard. The ease of integration will allow for seamless acquisition of new partners that can go live fast.
