Frequently Asked Questions

Who is the team behind Varanida?

The experienced team that is building Varanida is working hard to build a better Internet.

You can meet the team here: https://www.varanida.com/about-team/ or drop us a line if you want to get involved.

What is Varanida?

Varanida is a transparent and decentralized digital ecosystem.

Our mission is to improve the Internet through a better distribution of value among users, advertisers, and publishers.

We also want to create a system that respects the rights of users to control their own data.

Can I transfer my VAD tokens to other currencies? (BTC, etc.)

At the moment, the Varanida tokens (VAD -- ERC-20 tokens) are virtually created and stored in your Varanida Wallet. After our ICO, we will hold a KYC (know-your-customer) procedure. Then we will hold our Token Generation event. 2 to 3 weeks after the Token Generation Event, you will be able to export your VADs, transfer them to a different ERC-20 wallet, go through an exchange, or use them with applications built on top of the Varanida Protocol.

How do I keep up to date with the current news about Varanida?

To get the latest news about Varanida, we encourage you to sign up for our newsletter: https://www.varanida.com/newsletter-signup

You can also follow us on Social Media.

Where are your offices located?

Our main office is in France, 55 rue de la Villette, 69003, Lyon. We’re a distributed team, with people working all around the world.

Where can I store my Varanida tokens?

During the prototype phase, VAD can be stored in any ERC-20 compatible wallet.

When the Varanida Protocol is released, VADu and VADm (Varanida’s Utility Token and Stable Token) will have to be stored in Varanida-native wallets.

What can I use Varanida tokens for?

When the Varanida Protocol is released, VAD will allow users to access premium content on certain sites.

Additionally, advertisers will be able to offer exclusive product promotions or offers that can be redeemed by using VAD.

VAD can also be traded on various exchanges, just like any ERC-20 token, though details of that process will be announced at a later date.

How are Varanida tokens earned?

Users earn Varanida Tokens (VAD for Verified Ad) any time they block an ad during the prototype phase.

After the prototype phase, users will be rewarded any time they are exposed to an ad, or help qualify an ad by voting on it (Good / Bad).

Publishers earn VAD any time an ad from the Varanida Network is displayed on their site.

When the Varanida Protocol is released, publishers will be rewarded by their audience.

Users will be able to spend VAD to access premium content, or to send a VAD tip to the publisher’s wallet if they like what they read or see.

What are the benefits of using Varanida?

Users who install the Varanida browser extension can use it to block (or allow) advertising as they browse the Internet.

In the future, users will be rewarded for their attention when they see advertising, and they will also be able to control how their data is shared (sharing is always done in an encrypted way), or prevent their data from being shared if they want to remain private.

Publishers can use the Varanida network to display advertising that is relevant to their content, and be compensated fairly for doing so.

Advertisers can use the Varanida network to promote their products and services, and improve the performance of that advertising by allowing more budget to go towards ad performance, as Varanida doesn’t take a commission on advertising spend.

Advertisers who use Varanida will be part of a transparent and trustworthy decentralized network.
