EmerLNX is a peer-to-peer text-based advertisement link exchange network based on a per-click payment model. EmerLNX operates under the "lnx" service abbreviation in the EmerNVS.
Unfortunately the EmerLNX project is temporarily frozen until it can be further developed.
There are 3 roles in the EmerLNX system:
Buyer : Advertises their website using the EmerLNX network. They pay a small amount of funds for each Visitor referred to their site by the EmerLNX network.
Host : Displays EmerLNX advertisements on their website. When a Visitor clicks an ad, the Host sends this Visitor to the Buyer's website and receives payment from the Buyer for this visit.
Visitor : An ordinary web-user who clicks on an advertisement on the Host's website and arrives at the Buyer's website.
In the EmerLNX system, a Buyer directly pays each Host for each Visitor. There is no central agent to set a minimum price, allowed words, etc, and there is no participation fee or commission. All payments go directly from the Buyers to Hosts, without the involvement of any intermediate agent.
An EmerLNX participant can be a Buyer and Host at the same time, i.e. they can show advertising links on their website, and also purchase traffic (visits) from the EmerLNX network. Hence, they can pay other participants to attract visitors to their site, while earning money for sending visitors to other sites.
EmerLNX runs on the Emercoin cryptocurrency and uses it in two ways:
- It uses Emercoin (EMC) as the payment unit for pay-per-click actions.
- It uses the EmerNVS as distributed storage for advertising contracts.
