How Basic Attention Token Works?

Brave anonymously monitors user attention to ads and calculates the amount of time the user spent on an ad which may be of interest. Ads are often matched with local machine learning to meet user interest and avoid irrelevant ads but no data is left from the device.

To compact Ad fraud Brave have implemented cryptography, better client-side integrity, and transparency achieved through open sourcing.

Brave Rewards

Brave Rewards

How to earn money just by browsing, it’s a lazy question of-course but brave have come forward with an idea where users are rewarded by viewing ads along with privacy protected ads that mean it doesn’t relate to your searches and history.

Yes, we know that most of the Ad networks pay a portion of the ad revenue with the publisher (content creator’s) and none with users. This idea not only benefits the user’s but also improve advertiser-user interaction. People will not keep away ads because it will also benefit them.

This strategy will improve sales and conversion of ads which in-turn benefits the advertiser or advertising company. The brave reward is available for all platforms and OS.

Creator Referral Program

This is another method by which you can earn more money by inviting users to the brave platform. Each qualified invite would be rewarded up to $7.50 according to the category which the user is from.

Brave is trying to totally replace Google Ad networks and privacy issues with its ad-blocker and anti-tracker algorithm. Some study reveals that brave is one of the secure browser available now. Its base framework is of chromium and contains additional features to protect user privacy and security.

You can sign up as a creator if you have a website, YouTube channel, Twitch, GitHub, etc. There arent any minimum criteria to be eligible for this program.

BAT Withdrawal Fees too High?

BAT withdrawal charges are sometimes more than what we have paid earlier, and sometimes it doesn’t make sense of the fee and what actual amount you have. To overcome this problem, I always convert my BAT to XRP, which has a lower withdrawal fee.

You can also search for other coins with less withdrawal fee and do the same.

What you Get?

Your privacy is respected without any trackers and targeted Ads plus you’re earning from simply browsing through Brave. This would be a perfect reason to switch from Chrome to Brave.
