CES.tech 2018

Right after Affiliate Summit West 2018, we took part in a large-scale technology exhibition CES.tech 2018.

At this exhibition you can literally touch the future! CES.tech gathered all the most innovative products from a wide variety of industries, as well as their concepts and various design solutions.

All this was accompanied by great presentations, on which you could see what the products of future are capable of.

For us, this exhibition was a great chance to get in touch with companies that previously we were not able to meet at specialized digital advertising exhibitions.

We managed to establish contact with a huge number of new partners, with whom we are now developing relations.

For OrbitSoft the beginning of 2018 turned out to be fruitful and successful, and we are sure that it will continue in the same way!

Affiliate Summit West 2018

From the very beginning of the new year OrbitSoft began to work. Our team arrived to the fabulous and already well-known for us Las Vegas to participate in the 2 largest exhibitions — Affiliate Summit West 2018 and CES.tech 2018

Like his counterpart from the east coast, the Affiliate Summit West, held from January 7 to 9, brought together all the major players in the digital advertising market from around the world.

This is an excellent chance to establish contacts with companies with a wide variety of requests. There were about 6000 participants from more than 70 countries around the world.

And we did our best to take full advantage of the opportunity to communicate with our potential customers, and also to meet live and thank our current partners for their trust.

The Affiliate Summit West 2018 was just our first stop in Las Vegas. Immediately a new adventure has begun — CES.tech 2018

Blockchain Technology – A New Movement is Here

BlockChain

As we all know, new technologies are constantly being created and old ones being updated in order to sustain the ever-growing business demand for the most cutting-edge tools. Recently, the blockchain technology has become very prevalent in various industries, including the advertising business. We strongly believe that blockchains are already changing the global business structure, and that these changes will facilitate growth for the digital market, and specifically for the advertising world.

So what is a blockchain? At its core, a blockchain is a large knowledge database. It’s basically a continuously growing list of records. As soon as a record is noted down in the chain, it becomes permanent and will continue to exist, unaltered, for as long as the chain exists. Furthermore, the blockchain is distributed to all the chain members and each user has access to the full copy of the chain.

The blockchain network does not have a centralized control point, or a single point of cancelation, as do other chains. That means that if one or several users are disconnected from the chain, the chain still continues to grow and the data is not lost.

This ability to keep complete records about all transactions in the chain, and to make these records available to all the chain members is what makes a blockchain so attractive and effective for complex problem solving.

Since the advertising industry has always been ahead of the curve, the blockchain technology is already being widely used in the digital advertising space. A non-profit research organization called iAB Tech Lab has recently assembled a team of experts in order to study the ways to use blockchains in order to develop standards for making advertising more effective and valuable.

Here at OrbitSoft, we have selected several of our own interesting projects to work on, based on blockchain technology.

  • AdChain is an open protocol on Ethereum’s public blockchain. Its stated goal is to allow for building of decentralized applications, specifically for use in the digital advertising ecosystem.
  • Adex is a decentralized ad exchange that utilizes Ethereum to address problems like fraud, privacy, and consent in the digital advertising space.
  • The Basic Attention Token (BAT) utilizes the Ethereum blockchain to create a token that can be used to obtain a variety of advertising and attention-based services on a purpose-built platform.

Using the blockchain technology, we are hoping to make progress toward resolving issues such as fraud, discrepancies with billing, financial transaction risks, and verifying the validity of advertising resources.

Currently, the blockchain technology is going through an unprecedented growth spur, mostly due to the popularity of cryptocurrency. In order to stay up-to-date and to be able to offer our clients the latest and greatest technological possibilities, we are planning to incorporate cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, etc.) into our own products going forward. Stay tuned for more exciting updates!

OrbitSoft Enables New Ad types in Ad Server Software

Ad Types abstraction

OrbitSoft customers and content consumers will be pleased to note that the popular ad serving platform is now offering full support for a greater number of ad types. Content Roll ads, also known as Page Roll or Outstream In-View videos can all be featured on the platform anywhere on the pages of the website. This opens up a lot of possibilities for publishers looking to monetize new ad regions without a video content player on the page, and helps to diversify the ads being displayed to make the pages more appealing to visitors as well.

“When we decided to expand the ad types offered on OrbitSoft we had three key demographics in mind,” explained Jacob of www.OrbitSoft.com “We wanted to be sure the ads were revenue creators for Publishers, high CTR converters for Advertisers, and pleasing bonus content for Fans. I’m confident that anyone viewing sites that utilize these new features from OrbitSoft will agree we have managed to make the display far more appealing to all three important constituents of our services.”

OrbitSoft also promotes fairness in the ad trade market by defaulting ads to only appear when they are 100% in-view of the end user. If the user scrolls away, the ad pauses until that user scrolls back, allowing brands fewer worries about ad fraud. That’s why the Content Roll ad unit only launches when a page registers a user action to prevent ad bot fraud.

OrbitSoft Ad Server also now supports two types of Background ads by utilizing the display of ad materials in the form of a background skin on the publisher’s site. Publishers can display a background image along with Rich Media or custom HTML content. This gives Advertisers access to a much larger ad format capable of providing more information to end-users. Background ads can also be fixed to a specific position so they remain visible even as a user scrolls down.

Native Ad options now also exist thanks to OrbitSoft Ad Server, adapting each ad to the appearance and functionality of the page chosen by the publisher to display. This method of ad targeting also allows retargeting of end users who interact with each ad. Also, testing has shown that consumes are more likely to share or save native ad content, because it shares the same look and feel as the content they adore.

On top of all that, OrbitSoft is adding full compliance with HTML5 creatives made in Google Web Designer to simplify placing created ad assets in a CDN and rewriting paths to the images and scripts locations. OrbitSoft was already able to connect In-Text XML-feeds to display text ads on a CPC basis. Now the platform is expanding support to also include ad types that connect via XML.

Enhancing your site and earning more as a Publisher, or improving your engagement as an Advertiser is as easy as contacting www.OrbitSoft.com right now to get details about the world’s most advanced ad server software and potential partners you can work with within your own ad budgets today!

Automatic Foreign Currency Conversion Updates

Per the request of one of our clients, our team created the ability to automatically update foreign currency conversions, including such currencies as the Malaysian ringgit and the Vietnamese dong. We are even able to keep up with such foreign currencies that most people have never heard of!

After doing research on all the existing options of maintaining the ever-changing foreign currency rates, we selected Yahoo Finance due to its ability to offer the widest selection of currencies. Then we created our own algorithm of keeping the latest currency rates.

In order to do this properly, our team utilized CRON software. Yahoo Finance updates its currency rates so frequently that we were able to set our settings to update every minute, in order to allow our users to see the latest rates.

Currency Conversion

Additionally, we explored the possibility of being able to customize the currency rates by the administrator. We fashioned the interface in such a way so as to allow the administrator to see the current rates, as well as to be able to enter a customized value. The administrator is able to see both values for each currency and to switch back and forth between them.

All currency values are set in System Settings. For example, on the screenshot, you can see the value of the Hong Kong dollar.

This project required us to push our own boundaries and to familiarize ourselves with the existing methods of receiving data in the area of foreign currencies, as well as to expand our vocabulary and knowledge of this subject overall. Our developers are now considering an opportunity to invest in some ringgits or dongs for themselves!
