This puts advertisers and publishers in a rather precarious position as both of them rely on ads, either for attracting new users or revenue. Even though some blockchain-based solutions like Basic Attention Token (BAT) have managed to disrupt the advertising space to some degree, a new blockchain startup Varanida believes that its platform can take this one step further. Instead of building an entire ad network from scratch, Varanida’s platform will give users, publishers, and advertisers granular control over their ads to prevent irr..
