VARANIDA is a decentralized, fair and transparent digital platform that builds a better internet and ethical ad network through a decentralized advertising and content solution.
The platform through the use of blockchain helps in improving digital advertising via the use of the internet making the project viable. I would likely to place my investment in it.
A decentralised advertising network is always the holy grail. It always falls on execution and how solid the product is. This project looks interesting enough in their approach.
Market Competitive environment:According to the team’s information market cap of the global digital advertising market in 2017 hit $228 bln.The team made a research of the market and see as their blockchain-competitors:Basic Attention ($ 35 mln raised in the ICO, market cap $ 254 mln, ROI USD 5,5x);AdEx ($ 10,5 mln raised in the ICO, market cap $ 29 mln, ROI USD 0,58x);AdShares ($ 11.9 mln raised in the ICO, market cap $ 3,1 mln, ROI USD 0,04x)etc.As competitors on traditional market:Google (241.4M US unique users (95.2% reach), $95.4B advertising revenue in 2017);Facebook (203.9M US monthly unique users (80.4% reach), $39.9B advertising revenue in 2017);Yahoo (185.6M US monthly unique users (73.2% reach), $4.7B advertising revenue in 2016).On the niche of the ad-blocking Varanida see as their competitors: AdBlock, AdBlock Plus, AdGuard, uBlock Origin.Many of this projects have strong teams with years in software development experience and in their product was already made large investments. Some of this products are already in beta-phase.
The project advantages:Varanida blockchain is developing on the base of the current working product DOZ as a way to deliver the more efficient experience of the marketing.The project made a comparison with some of its competitors in advertisement space. As clear advantages over them Varanida see:Rewards users for attention;Rewards users for interaction;Decentralized ad-blocking;Consensus ad validation;Support for publisher applications;Protocol release planned;Reputation system;Scalability;Decentralised real-time bidding;As an advantage over ad-blocking tools, Varanida points out an ability to choose what ads they can see (not clear how it differs from the user whitelist in the AdBlock). Weak advantage.
