WHY BRAVE REWARDS
Your attention is valuable. Earn by viewing privacy-respecting ads and pay it forward to support content creators you love.
With your old browser, you paid to browse the web by viewing ads with your valuable attention. You spent your valuable time downloading invasive ad technology that transmitted your precious private data to advertisers — without your consent.
Today, Brave welcomes you to the new Internet. One where your time is valued, your personal data is kept private, and you actually get rewarded for your attention.
HOW IT WORKS
Brave Rewards is built on the Basic Attention Token (BAT), a new way to value attention, connecting users, content creators, and advertisers.
When you join Brave Rewards, your browser will automatically start tallying (only on your device’s local storage) the attention you spend on sites you visit. Once a month, Brave Rewards will send the corresponding amount of BAT, divided up based on your attention, from your local browser-based wallet to the sites you’ve visited. You can remove sites you don’t want to support, and tip creators directly too.
All of this is anonymous: nobody (not even us here at Brave) can see who supported which sites. We can only count up the total support for each site and send the BAT their way. Content creators can use our partner Uphold to convert the BAT they earn into a currency of their choosing.
WHERE TO GET TOKENS
You can fund your wallet with a currency of your choice or earn tokens by viewing ads you’re in control of.
Brave Rewards goes beyond anonymously supporting your favorite content creators. Private ads are enabled by default in Brave Rewards, providing the ability to earn Basic Attention Tokens (BAT) every time you view an ad. Ads are presented separately from your web content at a convenient time, and keep your personal details completely private and anonymous.
You can control the number of private ads you’d like to see, and earn 70% of the ad revenue that we receive from advertisers. In exchange for your attention, you’ll accumulate tokens as you browse. You can contribute these tokens to the sites you love — with more options coming later. Of course, you can also turn off private ads at any time in the Brave Rewards settings page if you no longer want to earn tokens by viewing them.
