One of the week’s biggest news is that Brave browser users can finally begin to earn cryptocurrency for surfing the web. Brave is a privacy-focused web browser with a native token called Basic Attention Token (BAT) that rewards users for viewing ads, ensuring users finally get incentives for viewing ads as they go online.
The much-anticipated release of this feature will roll out in several stages, with current viewers only able to see ads in very specific regions. It does mean that many users will still be disappointed to not be on the viewing roll but Brave promises to address the situation at some point.
BAT price itself has been enjoying some growth, although a recent correction of about 10% is probably from the pressure of the overall market plus the fact that supply is finally entering the market through rewards.
The short term outlook may not be as rosy as it could have been, but this project has been something a lot of crypto users have been looking forward to. Possible payouts in the future in other crypto other than BAT also seems to be under correction and might encourage more people to come on board, as a Twitter user expressed:
I honestly would prefer BTC payouts.
