Crypto ad networks are ad platforms like Google Adsense. The only difference being they provide promotions for crypto-related projects.

These websites allow blockchain-oriented businesses to set up marketing campaigns using banner and native ads. Once a campaign is set up, they distribute these ads across high-traffic websites, publications, etc.

Crypto ad networks are central to crypto advertising. In short, to attract quality traffic to your crypto project, you need to include crypto ad networks in your cryptocurrency marketing strategy.

You might wonder - There are many ad networks, which one should I choose?

Well, read along. We have compiled a list of the top 5 crypto ad networks.

Best Crypto Ad Networks In 2022

1. Bitmedia.io

Bitmedia.io is an AI-based Ad networking company launched in 2015. Bitmedia attracts a whopping 1 billion impressions each month along with over 20 million unique visits. Currently, 5,000 crypto-based websites are running over 20,000 campaigns on Bitmedia.

Bitmedia provides several targeting options to advertisers, such as geo, device, timing, and frequency. As for advertisement models, they provide both CPM and CPC.

As for quality, Bitmedia has strict verification checks to provide only legit impressions to advertisers. First, they verify each seller manually. Next, they have check-ins like third-party traffic control, manual clicks and impression moderation, runtime verification, etc. Thanks to this, all paid traffic, bots, and fraud impressions are removed, and advertisers only pay for quality impressions.

Regarding payments, Bitmedia offers publishers to withdraw their earnings in Bitcoin or fiat cash. The minimum withdrawal amount is 0.0001 BTC.

2. Ad Dragon

Launched in 2019, Ad Dragon is the world’s first decentralized finance (DeFi) advertising platform. Unlike Google Adsense, Ad Dragon has a peer-to-peer (P2P) advertising model. Think of it like Amazon or eBay. The only difference is Ad Dragon matches advertisers with publishers (sellers) who sell advertising services.

How does Ad Dragon work, you ask? It is simple. Sellers create their online stores on the Ad Dragon platform and sell ad services like sponsored posts, press releases, banner ads, and more. Advertisers browse through these listings and select services which suit their budget.

Sellers have a range of benefits on Ad Dragon, such as instant payouts, automatic crypto payments, price control over their listings, and much more.

Talking about payments, Ad Dragon charges sellers a 5% commission. This commission is calculated based on CPM (Cost Per Mille). Ad Dragon is built on Ethereum, and thus, the default payment method is ETH. The minimum payout limit is $50.

3. CoinZilla

CoinZilla has been around since 2016. Hands down, it is one of the most popular Bitcoin ad networks.

CoinZilla offers native, CPC, CPM, pop-ups, and other crypto advertising methods. The platform only supports quality sellers. To get registered with CoinZilla, the seller’s website must be at least 3 months old, have fast loading speeds, and be user-friendly.

As for payments, CoinZilla supports Bitcoin, Ethereum, bank transfer, credit card, and Webmoney. The minimum payout is 0.001 BTC, and the transaction fee is 0.0001 BTC. The best part is withdrawals are processed daily and incur minimum fees.

Talking about deposits, you can deposit as low as 100 EUR. If you manage to get your friends to sign up with CoinZilla and they deposit at least 500 EUR, you will get 50 EUR as a referral reward.

4. AdEx Network

Founded in 2017, AdEx Network was one of the first decentralized ad networks to bring transparency to the crypto ad network. They provide publishers with real-time reporting, thereby ensuring maximum transparency.

Moreover, AdEx has over 300 handpicked sellers on its platform. They have filtered out scammy, low-quality, and pay2surf sites.

The platform provides a CPM advertisement model and supports DAI stablecoin for payments. The best part is AdEx has no limits on withdrawals and no minimum deposits. To top it off, AdEx frequently runs cashback programs.

5. Coinverti

Launched in 2017, Coinverti is a Belgium-based crypto ad network.

Coinverti provides quality crypto advertising solutions for both publishers and advertisers. Their offerings include banner ads, native ads, in-feed ads, and pop-under crypto advertising.

As for quality, Coinverti has implemented an anti-fraud mechanism to identify bot and spam traffic. Further, it only accepts self-hosted crypto and blockchain-related websites.

Moreover, Coinverti provides real-time performance metrics so that you can keep a close eye on your ad reach. Plus, you can also request personal account managers and ad banner design assistance.

Coinverti accepts payments in Bitcoin. To run your ad campaign, you need to pay a minimum deposit of 0.001 BTC. If you are a publisher, you need to pay 0.0002 BTC for withdrawals.
