WordPress announces the official Ethereum ad plugin!
Ether (ETH), the local token of the Ethereum network, is now available for WordPress ads. The newly developed cryptocurrency plugin will allow WordPress publishers to transfer their advertising earnings directly to their ETH wallets, WordPress announced on its official website on December 10.
The Add-On, called” EthereumAds, ” will allow content publishers to open up ETH ad space using smart contracts. Official statement:
“USING OUR SMART CONTRACT, ONCE YOU ADD OUR WIDGET, YOUR AD SPACE IS AUTOMATICALLY AUCTIONED OFF TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER EVERY TWO WEEKS.”
According to the EthereumAds website, the WordPress plugin plans to compete with Google AdSense by allowing publishers to earn ETH through banner ads. EthereumAds in particular promises lower commissions to publishers:
“GOOGLE ADSENSE PAYS YOU ONLY 68 PERCENT OF YOUR AD EARNINGS. WE PAY YOU AN ENORMOUS 90 PERCENT.”
The new ad plugin applies to all types of content, such as websites, blog pages, ad spaces. It is not limited to content in the cryptocurrency field.
As EthereumAds seeks to compete with major ad monetization platforms such as Google AdSense, it is also raising thoughts about how traditional ad platforms will deal with their competitors in the crypto field.
