Basic Attention Token (BAT) Brave Ads started

Brave’s goal is to build a better online advertising system that will protect the privacy of Internet users. BAT, an ERC20 token based on the Ethereum (ETH) network, is used as a currency that allows consumers to reward websites for their content.

To be able to accept such payments, however, websites or YouTube channels must first sign up as a Brave Publisher. As shows, the Brave Publisher registrations are currently going through the roof.

70,000 creators, 18,000 web pages, and 7,000 twitch streamer are already here. This month even the big American newspaper The Los Angeles Times registered.

The digital library had already registered two years ago. As the website recently reported, over 9,000 BATs (over 3,500 euros) have been donated over time.

Brave Ads finally started

Today, the long-awaited Brave Ads feature for the desktop browser also went live. Among others, the news site Vice and the trading company eToro have already been acquired as partners. You pay for advertising, which users of the browser can voluntarily view.

If they decide to participate, they receive a whopping 70 percent of the revenue, which can then be distributed to different Brave Publishers as desired. The remaining 30 percent will scratch Brave. Unlike traditional Internet advertising, the privacy of users is preserved and their surfing activities are not tracked across websites.

However, if you do not want to see any ads at all, you can also refrain from participating in Brave Ads and continue to use the browser regularly with its built-in ad-blocker.
