We accept payment in Bitcoins, Paypal, and all major credit/debit cards. We also offer various payout method to publishers, namely bitcoin and paypal. To deliver qualified advertisement(s) for a given request, the BitcoinAdSmart engine applies a proprietary Yield Optimization Algorithm to determine the appropriate rank and cost for each advertisement. Our algorithm considers factors such as relevancy, targeting match, keyword match type, qualified filter criteria, historical earnings, current bid amount, and more to determine what advertisement is qualified to be shown, where (rank), and what it should be billed. Take advantage of our targeted ads and relevant traffic, become a publisher or an advertiser today!

The result: Increased revenue for publishers along with increased performance for advertisers.

Your typical ad server delivers advertisements based on pre-selected filters such as Geographical Targeting, Content Channel Matching, Keyword Matching, and/or Date Scheduling.  While these filters are needed and considered a norm, advertisers want, and need, more targeting control. BitcoinAdSmart is the first bitcoin advertiser to offer intelligent keyword drive ad serving.

In today’s demanding on-line marketing efforts, advertising relevance has become one of the most important factors for both the advertiser and the publisher.  Advertisers can experience increased traffic from interested, motivated, and highly targeted, visitors, while publishers can enjoy an increase in advertising revenue thanks to the higher click-through rate.

What differentiates BitcoinAdSmart from the simple keyword targeting methods typically found in other advertising products available today is our proprietary contextual targeting engine.  With BitcoinAdSmart, publishers no longer have to manually specify relevant keywords for each page that include ads. Instead, our proprietary contextual targeting engine finds relevant keywords from the page content, matches those keywords to the available ads, and then delivers matching ads.  Combining our proprietary contextual targeting engine with content channels, geographical targeting, and scheduling, bitcoin advertisers  and other advertisers can enjoy an increased volume of conversions.

Monetize your Traffic with Caixboard

Turn any content you are creating into cash: websites, blogs, tweets, forum posts, torrents, images etc. Setup text or text-banner ads depending on your target audience using Caixboard, become a publisher today!

The ability to create a website or blog and know how to make the most out of your traffic is an art in itself. Every type of website has it’s own type of traffic. What are visitors to your website looking to accomplish? As the owner of a website or blog, it’s not only important to know what your audience is looking for, but also how you can make the most money out of your traffic, while also providing quality content.

Just like all websites are not the same, neither are the ways we generate traffic to our sites. From Amazon’s associate program to Google Adsense to Contextual Advertising using yourself as a personal brand, your options for generating revenue are limitless. The mindset you should have is to continually try different methods and see what works best for you, while also keeping your user experience in mind.

Here at Caixboard we offer Contextual advertising, which is quite interesting. From a webmaster and internet marketing standpoint, we already know what links and advertisements look like, so we are more likely to avoid clicking on links. However, when the links are relevant to the information or review on the website, people love these links and find them very useful.

What this means for the publisher is more profit. Higher click-through rates will help maximize the monetization you receive on your content. BitcoinAdSmart allows you to display ads that are relevant to your site, thus increasing CTR.

Use Secure Passwords for your Self-Generated Private Keys

One of the lesser known features of Bitcoin is that the private keys, which form the basis for a Bitcoin address, do not need to be generated randomly; instead, one can generate a Bitcoin address, fully compatible with Blockchain.info’s wallet and Armory, using nothing but standard easily available cryptographic tools and a password of your choice. If you ever lose access to your client or account, or if you are using a brain wallet and don’t ever store your wallet electronically or on paper at all, you can always fully recover the ability to use your address simply by repeating the procedure you used to create it with the same password.

The trick is a simple one: open this web page in a new tab in private browsing mode (Shift+Ctrl+N in Chrome and Shift+Ctrl+P in Firefox), turn off your internet connection for security reasons, input the password into the larger textbox at the top, hit “Calculate SHA-256 hash,” and copy it down somewhere. Close the tab, turn the internet back on, and follow your wallet’s instructions for importing your own private key. It just so happens that the output of the SHA256 hash function is in exactly the right format to be a private key under Bitcoin’s elliptic curve cryptography system. You don’t have to use online tools to find the SHA256 hash; on Linux, for example, the command echo -n 'password' | sha256sum | grep -o '[0-9a-f]*' does the same thing and is more secure.

However, while this is a convenient way of reliably generating addresses, it is important to be extremely careful when using it. Recently, a Bitcoin user attempted a dictionary attack against addresses generated in this way, generating addresses from millions of passwords found in a leaked password database from an unrelated source, and ended up randomly guessing the backdoor keys to addresses that, at their peak, contained a total of seven bitcoins. Of course, this sum is a small one, but as the number of Bitcoin users increases and alternative wallet generation strategies become more popular, it will only increase, and there will be more incentive for someone with access to greater computer power to attempt this feat once again. Given that Bitcoin mining companies are developing computers thousands of times faster and more efficient at the task of calculating SHA256 hashes than anything else available today, they will be able to get much further.

So, how can you protect yourself? The most basic option is to use a strong password, and not something like 12345678, to secure your private key. However, the stronger the password the harder it will be to both input and remember, so stronger passwords, while being a necessity, need to be complemented with other strategies. One option is to use a hash function deliberately designed to run slowly. One popular option is bcrypt, of which a single hash takes a few hundred milliseconds to calculate. The wait is an insignificant one when you’re trying to create or recover your address yourself, but becomes prohibitive to any attacker wishing to attempt hashes by the millions. The simplest implementation to use is python-bcrypt; after installing it, open a Python console, type import bcrypt followed by x = bcrypt.hashpw ('password',bcrypt.encode_salt('0000000000000000',12)) (you can replace the empty salt with a second password if you wish). You will then need to apply SHA256 to the result to get the correct format for private key insertion, but what matters is that you have a very slow function forming the bulk of the generation process. Another possibility is to apply SHA256 a hundred thousand times (the python for which is import hashlib, followed by x = 'password', then for i in range(100000): x = hashlib.sha256(x).hexdigest() and finally print(x)) or, for added security against specializing mining computers, apply SHA512 a hundred thousand times instead and then only take the first half of the output.

However, there is also another option. Consider how password authentication works for normal websites: logging in to one’s Google, Twitter or Bitcointalk account does not simply require typing in a password to authenticate yourself, you must type in a username as well. And for good reason, too – rather than being able to pull off a dictionary attack and make off with thousands of accounts in one fell swoop, attackers are forced to try every password in their dictionary for each and every username that they come across, and they may not even have the database of usernames to work with. The solution to the Bitcoin address cracking problem is thus to replicate the username/password model for your private key. Rather than hashing “password”, I might hash “vbuterin:password” instead. As long as you remember your username and don’t have a complex convention for stringing the two together, this doesn’t harm memorability at all, but does severely hamper an attacker’s ability to unlock your address for his own use. read more
