AdShares is a decentralized, peer-to-peer market for programmatic advertising it is a cryptocurrency with its own blockchain. Adshares bills itself as a decentralized marketplace for programmatic advertising in a Web3-composable and metaverse-oriented world. The native token for its ecosystem is $ADS.[1]

The ecosystem aims to connect publishers and advertisers and enable them to make direct deals using ADS cryptocurrency. ADS is based on the ESC blockchain, which is purportedly able to process over 1 million transfers per second.[3]

ESC derives its name from the concept of the Enterprise service bus, where a cryptocurrency is used as the communication protocol.[3]

The primary aim of the Adshares project is to render various ad exchanges obsolete by making an open platform that will enable advertisers and publishers to find themselves and trade directly using blockchain.[2]

Standardized exchange and easy access to the market will foster the development of an open algorithm that will enable publishers to be their own SSP and advertisers to be their own DSP.[3]

Unlike most advertising networks, it help publishers monetize their AdBlock traffic.[1]
