Permission’s blockchain and cryptocurrency enable you to own, control and profit from your time and personal information.

Think of Permission as your digital “agent.”

We make it easy for you to receive value for your time and data while engaging with the web as you normally do.

Permission your data to brands and service providers and be paid for data you choose to share while shopping, being entertained, and other online engagement

Know that your data is secure, anonymized, and never (ever) sold to third parties

For Brands

Permission is leading the Web Toward a New Engagement Model

The Status Quo

Merchants pay centralized third-party platforms to show you their products, interrupting you and exploiting your data in the process. Tech giants yield mind-boggling profits while you gain zero financial benefit from your time and information.

60%
of millennials have installed ad blockers to escape chronic interruptions
87%
of consumers would opt out of having their personal information sold to third parties
8x
attention has escalated by a factor of 8 in the past 2 decades
50B
Estimated global loss in 2020 due to bots and click fraud

Google, Amazon, and Facebook dominate the web and take nearly 70% of all ad dollars, while shrinking your choices and suffocating merchants with declining ROI and a lack of transparency about whether their ad dollars are spent on real people.

Revolutionizing Rewards

ASK is a currency that can be earned, traded and spent at the time and location of your choice. Its utility extends beyond the ordinary rewards program. Businesses can instantly tap into the power of permission by using ASK to engage and reward customers.

A use case for ASK

Our flagship app where users opt-in to register their personal interests and other key data, and embark on various shopping and entertainment journeys. Users earn ASK for engaging with videos, surveys, and other content that addresses their needs and desires. Users can spend ASK and other leading currencies on the Permission platform.

An optimized ecosystem

Permission’s SDK will allow devs to build apps that enable businesses to become permission marketers and meet consumers’ increasing (and rightful!) demand for rewards. The growth of permission-based applications will incentivize the currency’s growth and enhance its compounding effect.
