Basic Attention Token [BAT] is a cryptocurrency that is attracting more and more interest. BAT is an ERC 20 token whose mission is to improve the efficiency of digital advertising.
Thanks to the Brave browser, you can win this cryptocurrency just by browsing the internet.
What is Brave?
We could define Brave as the evolution of internet browsers. This open source browser blocks malicious ads and data capture crawlers.
These blockages of unnecessary information for the user makes the website load up to 6 times faster than other better known browsers such as Chrome, Safari or Firefox.
To reward its users, Brave anonymously monitors the user’s attention (but does not collect any information about them).
How do I configure Brave to gain BAT?
The first thing we have to do to earn Basic Attention Token [BAT] using Brave is to download the browser from the official website.
Once downloaded we have 2 options, to win BAT as a user watching advertising, or as a content creator.
Win BAT in Brave as a user
Once the browser is installed, we must activate the BAT rewards. There are 2 ways, one from the Brave icon located on the right side of the browser bar and another from the page menu as shown in the image.
From this tab you can configure if you want to activate or deactivate the rewards, the amount of ads that Brave can show you per hour, if you want to contribute with the content creators making automatic donations or give a tip to a specific website, twitter account or youtube channel.
“Earn tokens by viewing ads on Brave. The ads offered are based on your interests, as deduced from your browsing behavior. No personal data or browsing history leaves your browser… The rewards are paid monthly. Set the desired frequency to increase or decrease earnings.”, they state on their website.
In some regions the web can show a warning:
“We are sorry! Ads are not yet available in your region.”
This is because Brave keeps working and adding these rewards in different places, if you get this message don’t worry, you’ll be able to earn BATs with Brave soon.
How do these reward ads appear on Brave?
Brave rewards ads do not appear like the ones normally shown on a website.
These notifications appear in the browser while we are viewing a page, usually on the right side. If we want to access the ad and earn BATs, we will have to click on it.
