Toyota will insist more of the businesses facilitating its programmatic buys adopt its blockchain to spot any inconsistencies between the way each of them handles Toyota’s bids.
The more ad tech vendors, publishers, app owners and agencies share data with the advertiser’s blockchain, the easier it will be to see whether one of those businesses shares data that doesn’t match up with the rest.
