With Vreo, advertising can be embedded directly into the software to be part of the surroundings without interrupting the experience. Advertisers can present and deliver ads while the developer generates revenue.
Vreo’s cost-per-quality-view algorithm and use of blockchain technology allows a transparent, fair and secure monetization to cover the increased costs of developments.
And most importantly, produced content will increase in quality and longevity, as happily returning customers provide more income than those who bail out.
Vreo brings all 3 participants— the player, the advertiser, and the developer— of the gaming market together. Its marketplace approach enables easy access and demanded scalability. The PlugIn integration to graphical engines eliminates boundaries of devices, and lastly, blockchain technology provides substantial reduction of ad fraud.
We have two different tokens. The one offered in this offering (VREO) can be exchanged publicly and represents what we call “Proof of merit”. The other is used by our platform's customers (VIT) to ensure our in-game advertising solution can be made as transparent as possible. The token mechanics are designed with velocity in mind, and incentivizes to hold the VREO long-term, reducing available market supply.We make each view of an advertisement a unique transaction, therefore anyone issuing, placing or actually viewing an advertisement will perform transactions. This ensures the utmost open and transparent level of economic interaction imaginable today.
MeritCoin (VREO) is like a membership access used to access certain benefits from the Vreo marketplace. For example, companies can get a discount on the fees they owe to Vreo if they hold at least a couple of thousands units of VREO. Holding VREO also grants access to more features like our market intelligence, preferential matching and the opportunity to advertise within our marketplace.
Developers and advertisers can also use VREO to promote a game to gamers registered with the Vreo marketplace. Each VREO grants the right to advertise to one Vreo gamer a month. Once used, the tokens are locked up for a month; after that, they can be used to create a new promotion.
Any tokens that are not sold will be burned.
The ViewToken (VIT) can only be attained by Vreo customers, and helps our unique embedded in-game advertising solution remain as transparent as possible. To achieve this goal, we break in-game impressions into fractions if the view is not as favorable as it could be for an advertiser. This solves a big challenge of in-game advertising: the grey area around impressions of doubtful quality.
Game developers and advertisers need to foresee their future expenses and income accurately. Therefore, ViewToken (VIT) will be used as a system token that represents a countable quality ad impression that will be stored immutably on a blockchain. The score represented by VIT will be the basis for the calculation of the price to be paid between the game developer and the advertiser.
Thanks to our vast network of Launch Partners we have already garnered a notable potential reach of gamers across the world and have built a growing advertisement budget.
