Digital Advertiser Alert: All Display Ad Campaigns are Robbed by Ad Fraud. How Much Does an Advertiser Lose? Find Out in 7 Seconds

Ad Tech startup tribeOS co-founder Matt Gallant releases proprietary online tool that instantly reveals the damage ad fraud causes in real time


HAMILTON, Bermuda, Sept. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital ad fraud is the second most profitable organized crime next to drug trafficking. The theft is invisible. Digital advertisers have no way of knowing which ads were feasted on by bots instead of being seen by live human beings. 

Research has shown that a whopping 77% of display ads are never seen and more than half (52%) of web traffic is not generated by humans. 

Even more troubling? Juniper Research, Future Digital Advertising: Artificial Intelligence & Advertising Fraud 2019-2023, forecasts $42 billion in losses globally this year to fraud committed via online, mobile and in-app advertising. That's a 21% increase from the $35 billion lost to advertising fraud in 2018. The report suggests advertisers' total loss to fraud will jump to $100 billion by 2023.

So why isn't detailed ad fraud data available via current today's ad networks?  Unfortunately, today's display ad networks provide little to no transparency on digital ad fraud. Because each network has its own closed "black box" system, millions of digital advertisers are left clueless on how much of their ad spends are being stolen, let alone how to stop it. 

Well, what if there was an online display ad platform that not only provided unparalleled transparency but also detects and stops ad fraud, in real time, over 12 different ways?

That's what tribeOS, an Ad Tech startup built on blockchain, will make a reality when its display ad platform launches in Q4 2019. Stopping ad fraud is job one and a patent pending immutable database on blockchain records every transaction (and fraud attempt) in real time. 

tribeOS CEO and co-founder Matt Gallant, added, "The digital advertising world has finally awakened to its nasty ad fraud problem. tribeOS will prove to be a disruptive force in two key ways: first in educating digital advertisers of the ongoing ad spend thievery from ad fraud. And second, provide a breakthrough display ad platform architected to prevent ad fraud from happening, all in real time. 

To help educate advertisers, our ad fraud calculator is now live! In seconds, digital advertisers can see actual monies stolen by ad fraud based on four respected industry databases. We're excited to make this tool available at no cost. After all, ad fraud is already costing advertisers enough already.

tribeOS is the only display ad platform that makes stopping ad fraud its primary mission. Just watch. When we launch, not only the fraudsters will be running for cover."

Ad Fraud Calculator Instantly Shows the Amount of Ad Spend Stolen 

Information overwhelm proves a real challenge in communicating the serious damage ad fraud wreaks on advertisers, companies, and even individual lives. In fact, even sophisticated marketing professionals get numb to all the numbers and data. This is especially true when an advertiser can't see real proof their ad spend and ad performance are being negatively affected on a daily basis.

That's why tribeOS pioneered a real-time ad fraud calculator using industry data via the following credible industry sources: Juniper, Cheq, Statista, and Dr. Augustine Fou

How does the calculator work? A digital advertiser simply enters the amount of their current ad spend and they'll see instantly what percentage of the display ad spend is being stolen. 

Take the "7-Second Test Now via the tribeOS Ad Fraud Calculator. Ad fraud is here to stay. Fortunately, there's a way to see exactly how much is being stolen from any ad spend at any time.

The FT's latest investigation focuses on Dubai-based Al Alam Solutions, a Wirecard partner company that, according to the report, contributed half of the company's profits in 2016.

South Korea has deployed helicopters to disinfect parts of the 250-kilometer-long border-barrier, near which more than a dozen outbreaks have occurred on farms since the virus was first reported there a month ago.

    OPEC, allies to maintain oil market stability beyond 2020: Barkindo

    The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies are committed to maintaining oil market stability beyond 2020, with physical supplies relatively tight globally, OPEC Secretary-General Mohammad Barkindo said on Tuesday. OPEC, Russia and other oil producer allies, a grouping known as OPEC+, have pledged to cut production by 1.2 million barrels per day (bpd) until March 2020 to support oil prices. "I have been hearing a resounding chorus from all the players that they are determined not to allow a relapse to the downturn that we just navigated out of," Barkindo told the India Energy Forum by CERAWeek, referring to a period of low oil prices in 2014-2015 that had led OPEC to cut output.

    Exclusive: No choice but to invest in oil, Shell CEO says

    Royal Dutch Shell still sees abundant opportunity to make money from oil and gas in coming decades even as investors and governments increase pressure on energy companies over climate change, its chief executive said.     But in an interview with Reuters, Ben van Beurden expressed concern that some shareholders could abandon the world's second-largest listed energy company due partly to what he called the "demonisation" of oil and gas and "unjustified" worries that its business model was unsustainable. Shell, which supplies around 3% of the world's energy, set out in 2017 a plan to halve the intensity of its greenhouse emissions by the middle of the century, based in large part on building one of the world's biggest power businesses.
