The project aims to build technical infrastructure that aims to boost the interactive advertisement blockchain ecosystem and construct a new way of interactive marketing.

Atlas Protocol’s team members include Duran Liu, former Head of Nebulas Labs, Cheng Li, former FreeWheel Engineering Director, Hitters Xu, founder of Nebulas and Ellen Wang, founder of Linked-Media. All of them have worked for Google for years.
ATP Smartdrop, the service provided by Atlas Protocol has already been launched in the Nebulas Incentive Program, which delivered token rewards to more than one hundred thousand users.
"The healthy development of the blockchain ecosystem in the long term requires an outstanding team to truly energize the whole industry," said Shoucheng Zhang, founding chairman of Danhua Capital.
Mervin Zhou, a partner of SBCVC, suggests that interactive advertisement marketing has the potential to make the next unicorn in the era of blockchain. He also believes that Atlas Protocol has the opportunity to become the next Google Ads in the world of blockchain.
