DATA (Decentralized AI-powered Trust Alliance), blockchain-based data authentication protocol powered by AI along with P2P mobile storage infrastructure, announced today its participation in OnXCHNG, the partnership program for the open source blockchain framework for the digital advertising ecosystem, XCHNG. Created by Kochava Labs SEZC, a research and development subsidiary of Kochava Inc., XCHNG is an open and unified blockchain-based framework for the digital advertising ecosystem. As an OnXCHNG partner, DATA will join a select group of players in the digital advertising ecosystem that has an opportunity to be actively involved in the XCHNG roadmap development from the beginning. OnXCHNG partners have access to the code base so that they may be one of the first to build applications on the protocol.

Charles Manning, CEO of Kochava, said “We are very proud to have DATA join our partner program, OnXCHNG. DATA is an extremely unique project and will serve an important role within the XCHNG platform by providing critical data authentication and reputation services. By placing insertion orders on the blockchain, XCHNG facilitates buyers and sellers to transact digital media. Ratings agencies and data enrichment providers such as DATA play a pivotal role in the self-governance of the ecosystem as we solve major issues such as ad fraud. We look forward to developing a strong partnership and ongoing collaboration as we create a new paradigm for digital advertising.”

Franklin Song, Chairman of DATA Foundation further commented “By being part of the OnXCHNG partner program, participants on the XCHNG platform will have access to DATA’s state-of-the-art anti-fraud mechanism via data authentication and be able to improve efficiency of ads spending, thus creating a healthier ecosystem that is much needed in the entire mobile data and advertising network. The strong relationship between XCHNG and DATA demonstrates the power of blockchain technology and its applicability to digital advertising. It will pave ways to a near future where fraud-free and maximum efficiency can truly be accomplished and every participant including the advertisers, publishers, platforms and end users not only benefits but also is rewarded meaningfully.” Mr. Song is pleased that thorough the mutual agreement, XCHNG would also be participating in DATA’s Trust Alliance and contributing in the anti-fraud ecosystem.
