The company uses blockchain technology to allow advertisers to reward consumers with ASK, the platform's native digital currency, for signing up, providing profile and preference data, engaging with video ads, referring friends, and other activities."Digital Advertising is ripe for a change," said Charles Silver, CEO of Permission.io. "Big tech exploits user data, and click fraud is estimated to grow into an $87 billion business in 2021. The major platforms grade their own homework, so to speak, and advertisers are getting the short end of the stick. Too often, the ads they pay to deliver are not even being seen. Permission is bringing the change this industry needs by respecting user data and by delivering to advertisers superior targeting and better ROI on their considerable spend.""Financial technology needs the most secure protection from fraud, and we're happy to share our expertise in document forensics with emerging industry leaders to ensure clear and reliable fraud detection while onboarding and asset management," said Arif Mamedov, President of Regula Forensics Inc.

When it comes to data validation, Regula's technology cross-checks the data obtained from MRZ, VIZ, and barcodes. The process of user identification is completed with face matching in seconds, while the personal data is secured by the internal Permission network. "We are very excited to add Regula's invaluable expertise to our promise to prevent identity fraud and deliver a delightful user experience," Silver said.
