Papyrus

Decentralized ecosystem for digital advertising



Papyrus is a fully comprehensive and highly scalable decentralized ecosystem for digital advertising which radically improves programmatic advertising stack to provide efficient, transparent and mutually beneficial environment for users, publishers, advertisers and decentralized application (dApp) developers using blockchain architecture.

The project was first conceptualized in January 2017 and has been funded to date by $1 million from private investors. Papyrus aims to develop a disruptive digital advertising platform using a constellation of integrated technologies that will transform and unite the entire digital advertising market in a single, comprehensive solution that offers unmatched transparency, security and cost effectiveness.

How Does It Work?

These are the basic elements and technologies Papyrus uses:
1. Ethereum blockchain and smart contracts.
2. State channels network for transactions performance scalability.
3. Secure and scalable decentralized data storage for event logs.
4. Blockchain identity and reputation management systems.
5. Decentralized real-time-bidding (RTB) protocol based on OpenRTB.

The architecture of Papyrus consists of 4 layers. Components of each layer are developed by the Papyrus team as open source software for the ecosystem growth and adoption.
The Papyrus AdTech Infrastructure layer includes all components required to establish a complete digital advertising cycle within the Papyrus ecosystem and to create gateways with traditional adtech systems.
