Verasity (VRA)

Verasity is an ad tech provider delivering transparency in advertising using its patented Proof of View (PoV) technology. Verasity integrates with leading Content Delivery Networks to provide ad stack, VeraViews, eliminating ad fraud and delivering authenticity & accountability to digital advertising.

How Verasity Works

The main blockchain-based technology feature of Verasity is Proof of View (PoV). Proof of View is a patented technology module that combines advanced bot detection with a distributed ledger backend,  ensuring validity during transactions and transparency in reporting & auditing. 

Digital transactions pass hundreds of parameters between devices which can be analysed to identify bots (bot transactions account for the majority of fraud in advertising). Storing valid transaction details on an open ledger guarantees that deals can be completed seamlessly and trusted by all parties, reducing payment terms and making ad spend go further. 

Why is Verasity Unique

In the ad tech industry, where Verasity delivers its solutions, no other project uses a distributed ledger backend to store ad campaign data. By doing this, Verasity strives to remove fraud from advertising and make the entire industry more transparent for both publishers and brands. 

The unique Proof of View module utilises hundreds of metrics to evaluate user behaviour combined with a pre-screening process at the initialisation stage. This produces extensive statistical data that is AI-sorted. Proof of View can also be applied to NFTs to prevent some fraud in the NFT market today.
