Krux Builds Header Bidding Designed For Data Transactions

That streamlined process reduces cookie loss and bypasses tech fees from the SSP and exchange. SSPs often charge publishers 10% or 15% of all the media, and exchanges take another cut, while Krux Link said it takes a single 25-cent CPM fee on transactions.
