The Brave browser was built to reward content creators, block annoying ads and increase security while browsing the web. The idea is to allow advertisers and consumers to pay the content creators directly without going through a middleman. Google and Facebook currently take 73% of all ad dollars so a majority of the money is being diverted away from the content creators themselves. In the future, the browser plans on rewarding users who do watch advertisements by paying them in BAT (Basic Attention Tokens). You might be saying to yourself, “Getting paid to watch advertisements? What a concept!” Instead of pressing skip on that 30-second youtube advertisement, you might reconsider if they immediately pay you after watching the ad. In addition to earning money directly by watching ads, you can actually save money by reducing the amount of data eaten by mobile advertisements. Mobile ads can account for up to 79% of the data that you pay for each month. Think about that for a second, an average of around 48% of our mobile data is being spent on advertisements.
