The first stage of altcoins support at A-ADS

Altcoins support has been a recurring request both from our advertisers and publishers, due to the Bitcoin scaling issue which resulted in steep transactional fees and increased transactions waiting times. This issue will probably be resolved in the future but we must serve the present needs of our customers.

That's why starting today, the 29th of December, our advertisers can top up their accounts using the following altcoins:
  • Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
  • Ethereum (ETH)
  • Dash (DASH)
  • Litecoin (LTC)
There are a few things to keep in mind though:

First of all, your altcoin deposits will be converted to Bitcoin (BTC) which is our primary currency and we are not going to forsake it.

Secondly, for altcoin deposits there is a 3% conversion fee and a 0.5% fee will be taken by our payment processor.

Thirdly, altcoin deposits won't be displayed until they get confirmed. Since we use a third party to accept altcoins, it may require additional time to process the payment after it receives the required amount of confirmations (which depends on the currency).

We realize that altcoin withdrawals might be even a more important feature for publishers and we plan to implement it as well.

The A-ADS team wishes you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
