ClearCoin: Powering a New Decentralized Web

ClearCoin makes buying and selling of media on the blockchain simple and seamless. Our platform powers a system allowing for complete data transparency everyone can trust.

Paid Media Buying With ClearCoin

Digital platforms create an opportunity for an ever growing number of individuals to see your message. Historically, marketing and paid media buying has been a means by which to spread ideas through cultures. The connected nature of today’s digital landscape has enabled new publishers and creators to garner large audiences. These audience clusters are targeted with greater accuracy given the abundance of information available on each person.

ClearCoin’s paid media buying solutions are geared toward spreading messages to audiences on ever connected digital platforms. Greater communication with your audience means those individuals have a greater understanding of your value. Creative messages should build a relationship with your audience and usually paid media is necessary to get the message in front of the right amount of people. As your brand’s output grows, paid media is often the avenue that compels new people to interact with your brand.

Clear Advertising

ClearCoin is producing the clearest and most transparent advertising software on the market.

 
 
 

Transactional Smart Contracts for Advertisers & Publishers

ClearCoin publishes ad campaign data directly to the blockchain which enables seamless transactions between advertisers and publishers. Using smart contract technology, payments are released to publishers on periodically as the campaign is delivered. This systematic way of transacting is divergent from an industry which often sets payment terms 60 to 90 days from the time of campaign completion.

ClearCoin uses the XCLR network token to transact these campaigns between buyers and sellers of media. The data published to the smart contract includes the elected cost per click and the intended spending of the buyer. Access to ClearCoin’s smart contract technology is available through its platform or in a managed services format through the company.
