VeraViews joins CAN

VeraViews will join the Conscious Advertising Network’s existing 180+ members in working to break the economic link between advertising and harmful content.

VeraViews joins CAN
Harriet Kingaby: “We're really pleased to welcome Vera Views as a CAN member.”

VeraViews, an open-ledger advertising ecosystem that prevents ad fraud, has been accepted as a member of the Conscious Advertising Network (CAN).

In its membership application, CAN says VeraViews explained how ad fraud hurts both advertisers and publishers, and detailed its open ledger-based ad tech solution and patented ‘Proof of View’ (PoV) PoV technology, tailored to programmatic video advertising, which adds a purpose-built transparency layer that is tamper-resistant and auditable.

This results in higher campaign ROIs for advertisers and speeds up publisher payments, they claimed, as advertisers only pay for valid engagement on ad campaigns, while publishers get paid faster, since the attribution data is real-time and immutable.

CAN is a UK-based international coalition of over 180 advertisers, agencies, tech providers and civil society groups, that say they are focused on breaking the economic link between advertising and harmful content.

CAN’s members include Haleon, Virgin Media O2, British Gas and Innocent Drinks, and network media agencies Group M, Havas Media and Omnicom Media Group, as well as leading civil society groups including the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, the Global Disinformation Index and the Institute for Strategic Dialogue.

CAN says it combines its advertising and human rights expertise to help implement industry, platform and policy interventions, and to embed human rights in relevant commercial and political decision-making globally. It works directly with advertising platforms, media owners and publishers for positive change.

“We're really pleased to welcome VeraViews as a CAN member. Bringing accountability and transparency to the adtech space is so important in promoting better commercial results for advertisers, and ensuring less money is lost to ad fraud, or sites promoting disinformation and hate. Vera Views' use of open ledgers is truly pioneering,” said Harriet Kingaby, co-chair of C.A.N.
