join TAG TrustNet
to experience the benefits
of a live DLT network
the digital advertising trust network
tackling the industry trust problem
After extensive evaluation and consultation, the Trustworthy Accountability Group (TAG) has decided to launch the TAG TrustNet, a new phase of TAG’s ongoing Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) initiative conducted in partnership with Fiducia as the platform and infrastructure provider.
This 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,
This next phase will allow industry participants to take an active role in the launch of a collaborative industry consortium network dedicated to resolving the industry trust problem by enhancing accountability while driving business efficiencies.
driving accountability & business efficiency
The TAG TrustNet will initially focus on:
Running a fully functional live DLT network with a selected number of participants committed to develop a more accountable, efficient, trustworthy industry.
Providing ongoing reconciliation of impression data across participant supply chains.
Enabling participants to access and integrate the reconciled data to their own systems over a unified network API to develop their own use cases.
Allowing participants to retain full control of access to their data over encrypted keys.
Forming the entity to define the network governance and operating principles.
Measuring compliance against given metrics, including the verification of TAG certification status, strengthening the industry’s fight against ad fraud and other brand safety concerns.

multiple benefits of DLT for digital advertising
