What Is Vidy?
Vidy is the world’s first decentralized ad network, powered by the ethereum blockchain. Vidy’s ad platform allows advertisers to embed video ads directly into hyper-relevant website text, improving user experience, ad conversions and publisher payments.
With just a hold, users can now reveal tiny hyper-relevant videos embedded in the text of any page on the web, unlocking a whole new dimension of the internet. All ads are placed with an NLP consensus protocol driven by miners.
With a team of veteran engineers, industry-leading advisors and world-class brand partners, Vidy is on it’s way to reinventing online advertising, e-commerce, and entertainment.
How Vidy decentralized ad Blockchain Coin Works
VidyCoin is Vidy’s ERC20 utility token and the currency of Vidy’s Ad Ecosystem.
Advertisers purchase ad placements using VidyCoin and that VidyCoin is received by publishers and by the miners who run Vidy’s NLP protocol to place those ads.
For the first time ever, when you see a Vidylink and hold down to watch that vidy ad, you earn money. Vidy compensates you with Vidy Coin (VIDY) for each second that you hold down. The longer you hold, the more you earn. You can even make a purchase on that video using your Vidy Coin with just one tap.

Vidy’s Partnerships & Advisors
Vidy is unique because it is one of the very few projects that have already secured major partnerships with big publishing companies and advertisers. Vidy has also secured advertisers who are willing to stake VidyCoins. These companies are in the midst of having Vidy’s technology integrated in their systems to be made available to all their users. Brands such as CNN Indonesia, CNBC, Procter & Gamble, Coca Cola, Deliveroo, Esquire Magazines amongst others, are some of Vidy’s partners.
Vidy has also been able to attract some of the top names in the industry such as Procter & Gamble’s CTO, Former Chairman of UBS Group Asia, Sephora’s Head of Marketing among many others, to sit on the board of advisory. It is very rare that such influential thought leaders in their respective industries have agreed to back an ICO project. This speaks volumes about the credibility of the team and quality of the project.
A Revolution to both the Ad & Blockchain Industry
The most exciting part about Vidy is that there is NO SWITCHING COST involved at all for users. Users simply continue to read news or articles on the web as per normal, but now are able to experience Vidy with just a simple hold. Each time Vidy integrates with a major publisher, Vidy gains all the userbase of that publisher. It is one of the most scalable business models in the blockchain world.
With rewards being “airdropped” into the hands of users as they unveil ads, it is the first time that an ICO project is able to reach out on a massive scale, not just to the crypto community, but also everyone else. This creates massive exposure to VidyCoin as Vidy continues to integrate with all major publishers in the world.
It is the first time an ICO project brings together traditional business and blockchain in a feasible and scalable manner, creating lots of value to everyone in the ecosystem. This is just the beginning of the revolution.
