TAG TrustNet will improve the transactional transparency and accountability of digital media procurement.


The IPA has expressed its full support for TAG TrustNet, a new phase of TAG’s ongoing Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) initiative, to improve the transactional transparency and accountability of digital media procurement.

The project uses blockchain technology, specifically DLT, to establish a common “truth” on metrics to improve the efficiency of reporting for all stakeholders, including the verification of TAG certification status for inventory.


"While driving efficiencies, this initiative will also enable greater transparency in line with real, demanding regulatory requirements in a way that will allow us to regain the trust we’ve lost due to the evolving proliferation in this area."


Nigel Vaz, IPA President and CEO of Publicis Sapient

Keeping an eye on programmatic spend is fast becoming

the difference between smart and dumb money


By Ethan Wu


Programmatic advertisers have a seemingly straightforward problem: They’ve been spending a dollar for as little as a quarter in value. Yet despite hemorrhaging ad spend, opaque supply chains and inertia have made for slow progress in accountability.


Now, at last, brands are beginning to pay attention to where their programmatic dollars go. Firms focused on supply path optimization (SPO) have seen a surge of interest in recent months as marketers look to cut down on waste, fraud and service fees in the nearly $80 billion programmatic ad market.

After extensive evaluation and consultation, the Trustworthy Accountability Group (TAG) is pleased to announce the launch of TAG TrustNet, a new phase of TAG’s ongoing Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) initiative.


We are excited to move forward in applying this exciting emerging technology to real-world challenges faced by the TAG Community, and the digital advertising industry as a whole. Focused on two key industry challenges, TAG TrustNet will work to build trust and transparency across the supply chain by establishing a common “truth” on metrics that will improve the efficiency of reporting for all stakeholders, including the verification of TAG certification status for inventory, strengthening the industry’s fight against ad fraud and other brand safety concerns.


The launch of TAG TrustNet follows a twelve-month cross-industry pilot program initiated by JICWEBS, prior to its merger with TAG, and a subsequent industry consultation led by TAG with UK partners to evaluate the feasibility and benefits of DLT to increase trust and transparency in digital advertising.


Going forward, TAG plans to continue to work with technology partner Fiducia in its efforts to standardize a DLT infrastructure for the industry, so that TAG TrustNet and future DLT efforts can avoid confusion, miscommunication, and conflicting standards. Fiducia’s open-source platform has received strong positive recognition for providing an industry template, and we look forward to a continued partnership with them.


Beyond Fiducia and industry partners, a number of brands and agencies have expressed interest in participating in TAG TrustNet, and TAG welcomes inquiries and engagement from potential new partners who would like to explore this valuable and exciting opportunity. Interested parties can contact Adrian Lacey at adrian@tagtoday.net
