Overview

Ad Dragon is an all-in-one blockchain advertising platform that lets you advertise on top independent media platforms. What makes Ad Dragon unique is that it's a peer-to-peer marketplace, not a traditional ad exchange.

Some of the biggest independent media in the crypto world sell their advertising on Ad Dragon including CoinGecko, Etherscan, Coinmarketcap and more.

How it works

Instead of putting your hard earned ad dollars into an ad exchange, crossing your fingers and hoping for the best; with Ad Dragon you choose exactly where your ads go.

For example, if you wanted to advertise on CoinGecko, you would visit the CoinGecko store on the Ad Dragon marketplace, add the products you want into your shopping basket and checkout, just like any other online marketplace.

When you buy ads on Ad Dragon you get connected to the seller in a chat to collaborate on your order, making it truly a peer-to-peer platform. Smart contracts hold funds in escrow and payments are automatically released upon agreement of an order or refunded straight into the wallet of the buyer. Because it's all blockchain-based, it's all viewable on the ethereum blockchain making it incredibly transparent.

Ad Dragon doesn't just sell banner ads either; you can buy sponsored posts, reviews, sponsored newsletter blasts, tweets, videos and almost any advertising service you can think of.

  • DeFi payments and infrastructure. 
  • Instant payouts to sellers when they make a sale.
