Did you know that every time you use your favorite browser, you leave a digital fingerprint? Yes, browsers know a lot about you, probably a lot more than you think. And we’re not just referring to your passwords or account usernames.
Browsers are aware of your location history, the apps you use and how frequently you use them, your YouTube video habits, social media preferences, and so on. As a result, your personal information is used to bombard you with ads and advertisements that are mostly irrelevant to you.
So, naturally, the question arises: Is there an alternative to Google’s browsers? Is there a way to keep browsing the Internet while avoiding annoying advertisements and protecting personal information? And maybe they’ll let you work for a while? There is, indeed. In this post, we will introduce you to Brave Browser and demonstrate how to earn BAT, the browser’s cryptocurrency.
What exactly is Brave?
Brave is a free, open-source browser that blocks ads and trackers while also allowing you to browse the web anonymously. It, like Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, is built on Chromium, an open source engine. This means that you can add any Chrome extension to Brave by simply browsing the Chrome Web Store and selecting the extension you want to use.
Brave Browser is available for free download and use on iOS, Android, macOS, Windows, and Linux platforms.
By clicking on this link, you can begin earning BAT Tokens.
What is the Basic Attention Token (BAT)?
Brave Browser’s native token is called Basic Attention Token, or BAT. It is built on the Ethereum blockchain and can be traded between creators, advertisers and users. At the time of writing this blog post, BAT’s price on Coinbase is $ 0.20 USD.
How to make money with Brave
As you may have already understood, you can earn with Brave simply by browsing, thanks to the BAT-based rewards program.
When you download Brave Browser and sign up for the reward program, your browser will automatically start recording the time and activity you spend on certain websites or on certain ads. And depending on that, Brave will send you a corresponding monthly amount of BAT in your wallet.
Now, the question is how to join the reward program and start earning BAT tokens? Don’t worry, we have prepared a step by step guide to help you with this.
