Top 8 Best Bitcoin Ad Networks for Publishers to Earn Money in 2020
Bitcoin advertising networks provide you with ads to place on your website. In return you’ll receive a payout in Bitcoin (or fiat currency), which you can usually withdraw within a day or week.
From an advertiser perspective, ad networks supply a wide range of cryptocurrency websites where they can display their ads.
If you’re a publisher you should be aware of the following before implementing any ad network:
- You won’t always have control over which sites/services show up as advertisements on your site.
- Ad slots from ad networks tend to load slower than hosted ads/images which can slow down your site’s loading time.
- Some ad networks don’t filter out spam or malicious ads.
- If you’re a very popular site you may be “cannibalizing” your business model by selling ad slots to the ad network at a lower price than what you could have sold them directly to advertisers.
A-ADS (Anonymous Ads) is one of the oldest Bitcoin advertising networks. It is still a very popular choice in Publishers. Much like Bitcoin itself, the A-ADS advertising platform promotes anonymity: no personal information or verification is required. While there is a sign-up page, you can choose to sign in with a Bitcoin address without registering for an account.
A-ADS is known to offer prompt and punctual payments. Users have choice to withdraw their funds from A-ADS account to directly a Bitcoin address. You’re unlikely to encounter many problems, and if support is needed, A-ADS is usually very helpful.
Every ad in the network gets a tag (Risky Investments, Shady, etc). Publishers use manual pre-moderation to ban the unwanted tags.
The minimal withdrawal threshold for A-Ads is 0.001 BTC.
