New Blockchain, DATx, to Eradicate Challenges in Advertising

Bitcoin Press Release: DATx, a new blockchain initiated by Cosima Foundation, and in collaboration with Avazu – a leading advertising platform with global coverage – aims to help advertisers cut through all the fragmented clutter of user behavioral data to accurately target users and deliver advertisements that are meaningful to them

Singapore, 2nd of March, 2018 –  DATx is a renovation against the current advertising industry, dedicated to building a new smart advertising ecosystem, with decentralization as the foundation and artificial intelligence as the power engine. DATx provides remote storage of user behavior data. Its core function enables users to store their behavior data in a decentralized network node, after which users can acquire and access the data anywhere. The user behavior archive mainly comprises a complete chain of user behavior records, allowing simulations of whole user personas to learn the business insights underlying the various user views, clicks and purchases of the publisher.

Given DATx’s needs for high-concurrency, low-delay transaction processing, there is a consideration to adopt delegate proof of stake consensus, known as DPOS consensus mechanism. In DATx, DPOS consensus mechanism comprises two parts: the first is to elect a group of block producers, while the second is to schedule production. Election process should exert to ensure the stakeholders eventually have control of the entire network. This is to prevent stakeholders from suffering significant losses in the event of network problems.

DATx addresses delay and data throughput issues with DPOS and parallel chains. At present, the DPOS remains robust and is safe even when dealing with fraud by a significant number of block producers. An algorithm that chooses block producers and verifies the quality of nodes guarantees the security of DPOS. The pro-voting process ensures that a person cannot even select a single producer, even with a 50% effective voting power. DPOS significantly reduces the number of participating verification and accounting nodes, so that second-level consensus verification can be achieved.

For programmatic ads, more critical issues include real-time decision deliveries, personalized delivery requirements, and large transactions. The DPOS consensus mechanism adopted by DATx is essential to transactions by continuing to reach consensus while processing more transactions than any other blockchain, thus demonstrating a dimension of extraordinary DATx advertising ecosystem.

In addition, DATx ad algorithm engine involves responding to massive amounts of ads and users in real time. The number of users is huge, their behavioral patterns, and their preferences for advertising content are also rich and diverse. Therefore, it is necessary for the algorithm engine to sort out the users with different features in a targeted manner. In this way, the order-led transaction can be promoted. Among the company’s proven technologies, Deep Neural Network (DNN) and Logistic Regression (LR) have been used to make offline sorting models, while online sorting models are updated online based on Reinforcement Learning (RL) intelligence to get the maximum return.

DATx core team members comprise over 80 engineers, product managers, architects and UEX experts, while other key members for the development of DATx include senior executives from Avazu. Its official cryptocurrency, DATx token, is now open for sale to institutional investors, with a total of 10 billion DATx tokens issued.

Cosima Foundation Launches Digital Advertising Blockchain DATx, in Collaboration with Avazu

Bitcoin Press Release: DATx aims to help advertisers target users more accurately with ability to support breakthrough TPS of 1million

Singapore, 2nd of March, 2018 – DATx, a new blockchain initiated by Cosima Foundation, and in collaboration with Avazu, a leading advertising platform with global coverage aims to help advertisers cut through all the fragmented clutter of user behavioural data to accurately target users and deliver advertisements that are meaningful to them.

DATx’s blockchain technology combined with artificial intelligence and big data solutions strives to resolve challenges that are specific to the digital advertising sphere by veering away from a generic one-for-all approach. It can showcase complete user behavioral patterns, including the time they received the advertisement, how long they viewed the advertisement and whether they made the purchase. Leveraging on this transparent, multi-stakeholder record of end-to-end user behavior data, advertisers can then refine their audience targeting tools, delivering precise advertising only to relevant users.

DATx  is based on a decentralised protocol aims to build a blockchain that has the capability to support one million transactions per second (TPS). Currently, the fastest blockchain is only able to support tens of thousands of transactions which is far lacking behind the advertising industry’s speed requirements. To achieve its goal of fulfilling 1 million TPS, plans are already underway to develop a robust data storage and a better consensus mechanism for DATx.

Avazu, the first advertising platform to be compatible with DATx, will enable DATx to customise native advertisements and acquisitions of its customers. Avazu currently supports over 100 million Daily Active Users and is capable of processing one million requests per second.

DATx’s incentive mechanism encourages users to participate and provide feedback, which helps advertising platforms to enhance their user targeting algorithms in delivering relevant advertisements to their target audiences. This promotes active and dynamic interactions among users, publishers, and advertisers within the ecosystem.

At launch, DATx will establish itself as a user-oriented behavior archive for advertising needs but will upgrade its protocol to one that recommends content by next year. It aims to eventually evolve into an advertising ecosystem that enhances value creation in its five-year roadmap.

DATx’s core team members comprise over 80 engineers, product managers, architects and UEX experts, while other core members for the development of DATx include senior executives from Avazu. Its official cryptocurrency, DATx token, is now open for sale to institutional investors, with a total of 10 billion DATx tokens issued.

Buying Art with Crypto  —  Aditus Pay™ Successfully Rolled Out at Art Stage Singapore 2018

Bitcoin Press Release: Aditus successfully powers crypto-payments for fine art at South East Asia’s biggest art show Art Stage. Aditus’s role during the Fair is a natural progression towards bridging purveyors of Southeast Asian artworks with crypto-affluents. As part of the platform, Aditus Pay enabled visitors to purchase artworks on display using Aditus (ADI) tokens and other cryptocurrencies.

February 12, 2018. Singapore: Aditus, the world’s first luxury access platform for crypto-affluents, in partnership with Art Stage, the largest art fair in Southeast Asia, integrated Aditus Pay as a payment service provider during the 8th edition of Art Stage Singapore which took place at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre.

The Native ADI Token

Aditus’s role during the Fair is a natural progression towards bridging purveyors of Southeast Asian artworks with crypto-affluents. As part of the platform, Aditus Pay enabled visitors to purchase artworks on display using Aditus (ADI) tokens and other cryptocurrencies. Aptly themed ‘interactions’, this year’s Art Stage Singapore carries a strong focus on the Thai art scene. Over 1,200 art lovers visited the Aditus booth while exhibiting galleries enquired and were trained on the interactive Aditus Pay facilities.

Four remarkable paintings were paid for with cryptocurrencies. Among them was Indonesian artist Naufal Abshar’s Fishing Catch Games. The painting is part of Naufal’s “HAHA” series, where he is said to be visually pushing the boundaries of humour with tongue-in-cheek social commentary.

Guillaume Levy-Lambert, co-founder of Art Porters Gallery in Singapore stated that:

“We are thrilled with the sale of an important early work by Naufal Abshar,”  “Payment settlement proceeded smoothly thanks to the capabilities demonstrated by Aditus Pay. I’m thoroughly impressed that this is a reality and a value-added amenity to Art Stage Singapore. Welcome to a new era!”

Cryptocurrencies are currently the fastest growing new asset class, giving rise to a growing new community of high-net-worth individuals who are cultivating an interest in the works of talented artists in the region.

The added convenience of making purchases via digital currency piqued the interest of a new breed of non-traditional art investors at Art Stage Singapore — paving the way for a new market segment to discover the world of fine art, courtesy of Aditus.

About Aditus

Aditus’ goal is to broaden cryptocurrency adoption by solving many of the currently unresolved problems for both merchants and crypto-users, and the Aditus Pay payment gateway is a core component to that approach.

Aditus’ founders are veteran entrepreneurs in luxury & technology, and it aims to use this advantage to work closely with its pool of luxury merchants to understand and solve these market problems, and thus be the first in the market to provide a comprehensive offering to crypto-users.

Aditus expects its crypto-adoption solutions to find application beyond the luxury industry.

A Blockchain RegTech Solution to the World’s $200 Billion a year Identity Verification Crisis: Introducing Velix.ID

Bitcoin Press Release: RegTech Startup Velix.ID are building a blockchain platform to ease the processes of identity verification and sharing across business and consumer markets globally.

January 15th 2018, Singapore, Malaysia – In the fast-moving 21st century with a 7 billion strong population — accessing any consumer service requires identity information — signing up on websites, ecommerce checkouts, accessing private properties, buying bitcoins, or gettings loans! However, this incautious sharing of Identity bring many problems for both the consumers and the businesses.

The Problems with Identity Verification

Identity Fraud: As per the data compiled and fact checked from Forbes, BBC, Mashable, CNBC and the Telegraph, the world is losing  up to $200 Billion in Identity Fraud every year, and more than 4 Billion data records were stolen globally in 2016 alone.

Data Breaches: When the data is stored in central databases with authorities or businesses, it is susceptible to mass data breaches. It is not just random websites on the internet that are compromising people’s data, even some of the world’s major brands have suffered mass data breaches. The list includes popular names such as Uber, Yahoo, Adobe, Sony, JP Morgan, eBay, Zomato; the government databases are no exceptions either. In India particularly, Aadhar has suffered multiple massive data breaches, compromising the most sensitive personal data of millions of Indian citizens. Other key government enterprises including DRDO, ISRO, RBI, EPFO, SBI, BSNL, and several others have faced data breaches as well.

Time & Cost Inefficiency: Current Methods of Identity Verification are too slow and inefficient for both consumers and businesses — taking the cost of verifying identities to near $100 billion a year. The laws relating to Cryptocurrencies in India are so stringent, that the Exchanges have to spend millions of dollars performing KYCs, which inconveniences the consumers by having to wait for multiple days before they can actually start trading. At new

The Velix.ID Solution

Decentralization: Storing the data in a centralized database makes the identity information susceptible to mass data breaches or misuse in the hands of the concerned authority (such as selling your information to advertisers without your explicit consent). Blockchain  Technology allows for this information to be stored on a public ledger in an anonymous manner with no authority having singular control over this information.

Easy Transaction: A unique easy-to-remember 8-digits alphanumeric  ID that can be shared globally with anyone to allow seamless sharing of identity information in a secured manner without requiring to repetitively provide the same information over and over again.

Mandatory User Consent:  The identity holder should always be in charge of how and where their identity information gets shared. Any transaction of Identity cannot occur between two parties without the explicit consent of the Identity Holder.

A Platform that doesn’t require Trust: The blockchain & zero-knowledge proofs technology that Velix.ID utilizes ensures that it doesn’t have any information stored about the user with it, and the identity information is transacted directly to the identity information requester, without any intermediary control. This means that the platform works even without trust.

Improved Customer Experience: Users can access services easily and instantly without repeatedly requiring to sign-up or entering identity information.

Time & Cost Conservation: The cost for new customer acquisition and identity verification comes down since the same processes do not have to be repeated over and over again. The time spent in performing multiple signups, gathering and verifying identity information also reduces significantly.

Identity verification has been one of the biggest concerns in the last decade globally because of the costs and risks involved in the process. I started exploring the identity space in 2015 when i discovered that my email ID got hacked in a mass data breach” Said Manav Singhal, CEO at Velix.ID.

“The idea behind Velix.ID has always been to make it safer and more efficient to share & verify identities across the consumer markets. As a consumer, I shouldn’t have to wait for days for the business to verify my identity before I can start accessing their services; it is a loss-loss situation for both businesses and their customers
