NYIAX partners for the first outside instance of its patent-pending asset exchange


Last year, a startup called NYIAX announced it was adapting the technology of the Nasdaq stock exchange to create a blockchain-based exchange for the buying and selling of ad contracts.

In December, NYIAX filed a patent with Nasdaq for trading any physical or digital asset on an exchange. In other words, NYIAX founder Carolina Abenante told me, the patent describes a way to trade ad contracts, videos, digital or physical collectibles, or whatever, on an exchange.

This week, NYIAX announced a new partnership that will be the first — outside of NYIAX’s own exchange — to implement this patent-pending approach. The partner is mesmr.tv (no caps), a year-old blockchain-based content startup that intends to take the YouTube model to the next phase.
