No doubt blockchain is future of affiliate marketing ecosystem, in Moscow we are glad to have great meetings with few amazing folks who are working on super awesome blockchain products for affiliate marketing world. Though it’s in very early stage surely we will see some impact of blockchain technology in this industry.
1. Affchain.io: Decentralised CPA Network using Blockchain.
Affiliate marketing is considered as $10 bln online advt. industry, It’s totally centralized by the power of major affiliate networks ecosystems. Majority Networks connect businesses with traffic owners on a centralized system, then analyze all financial reports and data on their servers. This may lead to unfairly act from their side.
Despite huge demand to crypto, there is still an enormous gap between existing success and mass adoption. The industry needs new non-institutional traffic and professional affiliates from adjoining fiat verticals can fill this gap when they can experience the benefits of blockchain and crypto for their venture.
I had a great conversation with Ivan Maslennikov (Founder & CEO) & Vladimir Karishev(CBDO) during our private meetup, very soon we will publish our video interview in our upcoming blockchain for advertising sector articles.
Ivan told me they are very confident about their ICO and their roadmap is pretty clear about. Having some awesome GOLANG developers in Prague who was Ex-Google employees, putting extra feathers in their long-term plan to disrupt this industry.

After all, informal communication is the key to the success of any business!
Luckily we made it and we enjoyed it! The MAC After-party completely made sure that the event should not just remain a pure suit-boot office conference. The main event conference slowly and gracefully slid into a full-fledged crazy party with an abundance of guests, beautiful girls, unlimited alcohol and hookahs (Shisha), Entertainment & dances and GoT charters for fun with some gorgeous and sexy models for entertainment. There was even a lucky Draw of a crazy dance competition with the winners getting an Apple iPad.
