Self Serve Advertising Software That Accepts Cryptocurrencies

Self serve advertising is when individuals and organizations can log into websites and apps and purchase advertising that will be shown to users of such sites and apps, and this can be done without having to wait (in any significant way) on any response from any human agent in order for the ads to be served to users.

This is dedicated to learning, teaching, and researching about self serve advertising. Self serve advertising is related to areas of knowledge that include technology, software engineering, business, advertising, and marketing. It can even relate to politics!

Some of the biggest providers of self serve online advertising are Facebook, Twitter, and Google. These are for profit companies. Net profits from ads are given to shareholders. This system benefits the few at the expense of the many. YouTube and Instagram probably also use self serve advertising.

Facebook and Twitter earn money from advertising placed alongside original content created by members/users. Facebook and Twitter do not pay royalties to content creators/contributors. Minimum royalty laws should exist.

There has been controversy related to self serve advertising. In 2016 elections in USA, self serve advertising was used in ways that may have violated election regulations to spread political ideas.

Can a nonprofit or decentralized organization facilitate (DAO) the creation of self serve advertising platforms that accept cryptocurrencies? Can such an organization use all profits for social good?

Newman’s Own donates all profits to charities. Perhaps a nonprofit or DAO can exist that enables people to run self serve advertising on social media sites and also donate all net profits to charities or distribute most of back to content creators, and maybe even to viewers of ads. Is this a realistic endeavor?

In what ways can self serve advertising be utilized to benefit all of humanity, and not mostly just shareholders of large social media companies?

Will Manna Succeed?

Will the basic income cryptocurrency Manna be successful? If many people really want basic income implemented then many relatively wealthy people need to buy Manna and donate to People’s Currency Foundation. This will increase the value of Manna. I have also contacted People’s Currency Foundation about setting up an endowment to back the value of Manna. This can help too. Basic income cryptocurrencies will only work if many people cooperate to make it work. Manna doesn’t need to be worth a lot to help those many millions of people on Earth earning less than $1 per day.

Will DAO’s That Tokenize Dividends Become Ubiquitous?

Cryptocurrencies have enabled the creation and establishment of decentralized autonomous organizations (DAO’s). DAO’s can effectively be a new form of business and organization that is easy to be a part of and mutually benefit from. They also have the potential to benefit many members of society and transform society. Organizations are groups of people cooperating together to achieve some small, medium, large, or monumental goal, purpose, or task. There can be nearly an infinite number of potential DAO’s.

Are outdated and now unjust laws related to securities harming the potential future of cryptocurrency and blockchain adoption, and also harming the potential for a future of increased abundance and prosperity for all of humanity?

Are many laws related to securities that are preventing non-accredited investors from purchasing tokenized assets unconstitutional? Could parts of our US Constitution about free speech and freedom of association apply here?

Can decentralized autonomous organizations (DAO’s) that provide useful goods and services to consumers and then provide dividends back to many stakeholders (accredited and non-accredited) legally exist? DAO’s like this should be able to exist.

What do you think? Are there any lawyers that could attempt to fairly and justly utilize the judicial system to enable peaceful groups of people to tokenize assets and businesses in a way that is nearly frictionless to affiliate, participate, and associate with?

Will DAO’s that deliver dividends to many stakeholders become common and ubiquitous in 5 years? 10 years?
