AB-CHAIN - INTERNATIONAL BLOCKCHAIN AD NETWORK
What is AB‑CHAIN?
AB-CHAIN is the advertising platform for companies which are going to start their Crowdfunding/ICO or have already raised funding. By accepting the 10 most popular cryptocurrencies and AB-CHAIN token (with 50% commission discount) as a payment medium, we allow companies to bypass all potential issues that can appear during the conversion process from cryptocurrencies to FIAT.
Mission and Vision
The AB-CHAIN mission is to provide companies that have budgets in cryptocurrency a
quick and simple way to publish ads online without the need to convert to fiat1.
The AB-CHAIN vision is to become a company proposing a complete product line that
caters to companies with cryptocurrency budgets.
AB-CHAIN is a new generation advertising network2 that allows advertisers3 to buy ad
space from publishers4 using cryptocurrencies.
2017 is the year of ICO. Most companies that raised funds through ICO are actively
developing their products. More than half have promised to make it available to the public
by 2018. Once their products are on the market, these companies will need to advertise
Startups usually spend 20 to 30% of their budgets on marketing and advertising. For
example, the following ICO companies have allocated different percentages of their
budgets for marketing and advertising following the initial investment stage:
1) KICKICO — part of 43% investments for “PR & marketing for KICKICO development
and project support”
2) Revain — 45% of investments on marketing
3) AdEx — 20% of investments on marketing
4) LordMancer — 50% of investments on marketing
We are expecting the creation of a $ 200m advertising market in crypto currencies by
2018 with a 200% annual growth rate over the next 5 years.
Benefit to Advertisers
AB-CHAIN wants to provide optimal value to advertisers by:
1) Providing the widest choice of publishers that can offer effective consumption of
2) Offering them the possibility to pay 100% in cryptocurrency even if the amount is
superior to millions of USD.
3) Giving access to publishers that would traditionally not accept cryptocurrency
4) Taking out their need to convert cryptocurrency to fiat.
Benefit to ad Network
AB-CHAIN wants to provide a complete solution for existing ad networks by:
1) Increasing the sale potential for each network with new post ICO advertisers — this
will be done using an API to import AB-CHAIN advertisers’ banners into a network
so that it places them on publishers’ websites.
2) Providing a payment system that accept both cryptocurrency and fiat (automatically
converted from cryptocurrency)

Advertising rotation system
Our advertising rotation system is the technological core of the ad network business that
automatically watches ad views with real time tracking of offer changes. This constant
monitoring allows the system to change ads for each specific publisher automatically and
produces ad rotation.
Our advertising rotation system is a cloud-based application scaling, depending on the
load of the network. This allows the system to scale for a big volume of advertising
without changing the software.
Cryptocurrency exchanges integration
AB-CHAIN platform will provide the advertiser with the ability to put an ad into the
network with bid in one cryptocurrency and allow the publisher to receive another. For
example, advertiser has made an ICO and attracted ETH and pays in ethereum, and
publisher wants to receive Bitcoins. AB-CHAIN will allow automatic conversion from ETH
paid from advertiser to Bitcoin withdrawn by publisher.
The AB-CHAIN token is designed as a decentralized ERC20 token on the Ethereum
blockchain. This allows a smart contract between our clients and AB-CHAIN.
In order to speed up coin adoption, we will propose to add its support as the payment
method to all our partners networks.
Our marketing activities will drive companies towards using AB-CHAIN tokens with
added mechanisms that will also apply an upward price pressure on AB-CHAIN tokens.
AB-CHAIN coin turnover
When a transaction with AB-CHAIN coin occurs, AB-CHAIN takes a commission of 10%.
Out of that, 50% is burned and the other half is used to make the AB-CHAIN blockchain
work. The commission fees are used by AB-CHAIN to support operations cost and
Burning a fraction of AB-CHAINs is a way to provide long term added value benefits to
early token buyer.
AB-CHAIN coin price pressure
50% Commission discount
The main incentive for advertisers to pay in AB-CHAIN coin is to get a 50% discount on
AB-CHAIN commission fees. Commonly ad networks charge 20% of commission over all
payments. An advertiser paying in bitcoin will be charged 20% commission while an
advertiser paying in AB-CHAIN coin will only be charged 10%.
AB-CHAIN Coin Burning mechanism
To increase interest on AB-CHAIN coin we are are introducing AB-CHAIN coin burning
mechanism. We will burn 50% of commission received by AB-CHAIN to support coin value
growth over time.
An advertiser placing ads for 100 AB-CHAIN, will be charged 10% by AB-CHAIN.
Half of that fee will be burned and the other half will be used to cover AB-CHAIN expense,
please see visual scheme in section ABC coin price pressure.
What will happens if all of AB-CHAIN tokens get
AB-CHAIN token has 18 decimals and it can be split. We calculate that the network will
have sufficient currency for over 5 years of its lifetime. When the total number of ABCHAIN
tokens decrease to a level disruptive to the overall operation, a new token will be
issued and offered in exchange of all remaining AB-CHAINs.
ICO companies buying AB-CHAIN
We are targeting advertisers that raised money through ICO. The average time between
the ICO event and the release of the product takes a minimum of 6 months. Therefore we
are inviting these companies to purchase AB-CHAIN token early on, so that they can
benefit from the value increase.
We will engage with companies currently doing ICO or who have just finished their ICO.
