Brave Browser Users Will Start Receiving Cryptocurrency For Viewing Ads
Get Paid For Watching Ads: Brave Browser Opt-In Walkthrough [Basic Attention Token Tutorial]
Brave web browser has launched an option that will allow users to receive rewards for viewing ads in the form of Basic Attention Token (BAT) cryptocurrency.
Initially, the blockchain browser blocks ads and trackers, but when Brave Ads is connected, users will be able to earn 70% of ad revenue. The reward will be paid to the crypto wallet only in the form of the native token of the project.
Brave does not communicate information about user behavior, but independently selects the appropriate ads to display. The innovation will allow companies coordinate with people interested in advertising, reducing costs and risks associated with privacy, security and fraud.
By default, the received BAT will be automatically distributed to subscriptions of frequently visited sites and payment for additional services, but if the function is disabled, the funds will start accumulating in the wallet. So far, the accrued tokens cannot be withdrawn due to the lack of a KYC solution, which is already being developed. After the introduction of the user identification system, they will be able to freely dispose of BAT without fear of fraud. Withdrawals can be made through partners of the company, such as Uphold and Coinbase.
In two years, the Brave web browser has become popular and is installed by default in HTC smartphones, including the Exodus 1 model. At the time of this writing, Basic Attention Token traded at $ 0.413 and ranks 22nd in the cryptocurrency rating with a total capitalization of $ 518.3 million.
