The first ever decentralized browser in the world, brave which runs on the blockchain technology has been experiencing a good time in the crypto space. Using brave browser one can earn tokens for surfing on the internet. Users are getting more tokens. Well known online magazine ‘First We Feast’ and LA Times have become official publishers for Brave. Archive.org stated that users had paid them USD 2,500 in BAT.
The objective of Brave browser is to focus on the way the advertising system works; which (these days) is working in favor of mediators and big players like Google. They want the system to work for publishers and users. Brave has blocked all the promotions and site trackers; however, clients who sign in are remunerated in BAT tokens for collaborating with advertisements through Brave Rewards.
Recently, Brave Rewards was incorporated into their Android application as a beta. But, some existing users of Brave browser say that they’re already using a version of the brave browser which has integrated Brave Rewards (inbuilt). Though it appears that it’s not accessible for every user, it very might be downloaded by these users from the Brave’s GitHub page. His page has listed pre-releases.
Whichever the case may be, it is clear that this version of the browser does not come with ads (for now). However, the development work is in progress, and it is giving positive vibes to the crypto community. When reached, brave was not available for comments.
Now that First We Feast has become an official publisher for Brave, it will be receiving tips in BAT (authorized token for Brave). First We Feast is an online magazine which focuses on food-culture and around has 5.7 million subscribers on YouTube. The magazine is famous for its content, and its integration with brave shows its mainstream adoption.
LA Times is also the verified publisher of Brave now. As per the report by SimilarWeb, the company had 37.1 million visits last month, and LA Times it is the fourth largest circulated newspapers in the US.
Archive.org which is based in San Francisco, posted a blog post, as per which, they had signed up to become a publisher a couple of years ago just for fun and last week they checked their tip box which was full with over 9,000 BAT tokens worth USD 2,500.
“This was an unexpected windfall. It was also proof that the current web, the one that’s driven by ads that know our every move, doesn’t have to be the web of the future. There could be a better way that’s secure, private and supported by its citizenry. To all of our Brave browser tippers, we thank you. Every little bit makes a big difference,” the blog post adds.
