Equipped with advanced ad blocking technology, the Brave browser has now been updated with a program that will pay users extra to view ads. The Brave Ads program is a voluntary program and upon joining, users are promised a reward for conscientiously reviewing commercial offers.
Brave Browser blocks annoying ads. The Brave startup team is positioning its Chromium-powered browser as a way to preserve online privacy and ensure the security of user data, which is often received by creators of advertising content.
According to the rules of the Brave Ads project, which does not imply mandatory participation, the Brave 2019 browser will display advertising messages, while part of the proceeds will be converted into electronic currency BAT (Brave Attention Token) and then transferred to an electronic wallet. The user will be able to use the cryptocurrency earned in this way in his own way: take it for himself or transfer it to a resource participating in the Brave Ads program that he wants to support.
In this case, the user does not have to choose the sites for support himself. At the end of each period (usually a month), the system independently, using the default settings, can transfer funds to the most visited sites. In the future, the accumulated BAT can be exchanged for discounts and vouchers that allow you to book hotels, as well as get real money for them using crypto-exchanges.
After the launch of the pilot project, about 40% of users agreed to participate in the alternative viewing program, which is paid for with cryptocurrency. The project team explains that the majority of the question of how to make money on the Brave browser turned out to be not important. Many users consider the bonuses earned as a way to thank the site or blogger they like.
Cryptocurrency-paid ads are displayed by the Brave browser separately from ads on websites. The system uses targeting, while statistics remain on the user's device. On it, the algorithm decides which videos to show to the user. The browser generates a report for advertisers on the number of views and clicks, while anonymizing the data.
