Brands & publishers need to grok randomwalker.info/publications/a…. If blockers inevitably win, we need a new, fraud-proof ecosystem: @AttentionToken.
I don't think there is such a thing as fraud-proof. That's why we work to detect, try and punish fraudulent people.
You're right, so we say "less" not "zero" in the @AttentionToken white paper. But current ecosystem is terrible: $16B fraud est. in 2017 US.

There's virtually no cost to being a fraudster / spammer. The burden shifts to those who can least afford it.
Not so even in today's crummy system: ad slots cost, malware buys for big ransomware payoff. Less asymmetric than spam. Now consider what we
are building: baseline blocks ads/trackers; users opt-in for rev-sharing ads & auth to user agent but not advertiser via Anonize (ZKP). This
is radically different from today's cookie/script third-party exchange world. No such parties in @AttentionToken model: just user in middle.
How do we stop it. Corrupt it. Undermine it continually in an elegant way? Symbol encode uri frags, 1/3 user 1/3 host 1/3 time?... use=state
's goal: pay users revshares for human-rate-limited attention - users must authenticate to get full custody of funds (KYC). Low fraud.
