Detailed description

Ternio is transforming the $224 billion digital advertising market, which is filled with domain fraud, bot traffic, and lengthy payment models. Incentives are not aligned causing both advertisers and publishers to feel they are on the losing side of the deal. 

Ternio has built Lexicon, the world's fastest blockchain capable of over 1 million transactions per second, fully decentralized and on-chain. Ternio will use Lexicon to disrupt the $224 billion per year digital advertising market through a multifaceted approach. Incentives and the general ecosystem are not aligned causing both advertisers and publishers to feel they are on the losing side of the deal. Ternio provides a verifiable and decentralized asset that empowers advertisers to verify spend through each intermediary and gives publishers the assurance and guarantee of being paid on delivery.


The digital advertising industry as we know it today faces many challenges, such as:

  1. Domain fraud
  2. Bot traffic
  3. Lack of transparency
  4. Lengthy payment models


Ternio solves these problems with proprietary advancement in the underlying blockchain technology. By resolving these issues Ternio is positioned to be the ideal utility token to revolutionize the digital advertising market.

The Ternio utility token provides a verifiable and decentralized asset that empowers advertisers to verify spend through each intermediary and gives publishers the vehicle to be paid on delivery. Advertisers get what they pay for and publishers don’t have to wait months to collect. Ternio can be integrated with most ad technology platforms giving trustworthy partners a share of the market’s success. 

The solution Blockchain scalability issue within digital advertising ecosystem has been resolved through own built platform based off both Stellar and Hyperledger Fabric. The Ternio blockchain system through our Lexicon blockchain utilizes smart contracts. 

These smart contracts can be viewed up and down the entire supply chain. An audit report is maintained on the blockchain showing breakdowns of pricing in the ecosystem and verifies the delivery of ads. The possibility exists within the Ternio blockchain to record “programmatic transaction level data – winning bid log data and metadata e.g. programmatic invoices”, which the industry is demanding.


100% Decentralized
By having a flexible core, the creator is able to state the environment and node configuration of the blockchain.

100% On-Chain
All transactions within Lexicon are completely on-chain either permissioned or public. No peer-to-peer or bulk transactions.

100% Verified
Lexicon is not open-source. For this reason, we went to great effort to have our code, methodologies, and transactions rates fully vetted and confirmed by an independent third-party.

In order to provide a blockchain framework that is able to hit the masses and be utilized by any industry in the world, scalability is a requirement.

Secure + Flexible
Lexicon utilizes a BFT algorithm for consensus which allows for secure transaction, flexibility, and scalability.
