Alkimi Exchange

THE WORLD’S FIRST DECENTRALISED AD EXCHANGE

We think about Advertising differently, so we are building the world’s first decentralised ad exchange, where:

  • Users aren't a product
  • Publishers aren't at the behest of Facebook and Google
  • Advertisers can deliver their message with value

Using the principle of Generative Economics, the Alkimi Exchange will reward Users, Publishers and Advertisers for rebuilding the intended value exchange of the Open Web. Fewer Ads, Better User Experience, Increased Engagement.
