first thread filled up fast. turn on max ads and NEVER tip or sell. it is a mathematical certainty that we will get rich off this. we can control the supply of bat and here is how we can do it.

the total supply is 1.5b tokens and there are currently 25m brave users, which is projected to hit 50m by the end of this year and growing. that means that if every user had brave ads enabled thats only 30 bat per wallet for the entire supply. to put this into perspective, i earn anywhere from 10-20 bat per month on EACH of my devices.

heres the best part. the advertisers HAVE to buy it. they don't even care what the price is, they pay in USD for their ads and brave market buys the bat to distribute it to the people seeing the ads. then we just keep it and dont fucking sell it. simple.

on top of this, they just announced a new roadmap where they are making a DEX that will include staking for liquidity providers, an nft platform and a bunch of other shit thats going to suck up the supply.


biz can collectively pull this off alone between not selling ad earnings and buying small amounts (optional) over the next few months. reddit has capitulated on bat already. good. fuck them. WE are the ones who do the fucking. biz gets rich on BTC, ETH, LINK and now BAT. fuck normies.


imagine GME but without citadel, robinhood, and wall street to fuck us. WE CONTROL THE SUPPLY. we can push this thing to extreme prices. this is literally free for you to do, so if you dont do it i cant even call you a cheap fuck - i can only call you STUPID.

Posting this to combat the schizo anti-Brave faggot who will likely shit up this thread too.


It's a free and open source browser with features like:

Ad-blocking by default.
Tracker-blocking by default.
Anti-fingerprinting mechanisms to prevent you from being monitored.
Built-in Tor windows.
Run by a based Christian and not furry leftists.

As far as I'm concerned, Brave is indisputably the best general-purpose browser out there. There are other okay browsers, and I'll mention things about Brave I don't like, but Brave is especially good because it comes with all of these sensible features out of the box (you don't have to go install an ad-blocker), so this makes it very good for installing it on your grandma's computer. The anti-fingerprinting abilities are even unique among power-user browsers.

Despite that, there is a loud clique of anti-Brave agitators and Brave skeptics. Whenever I do a video on Brave, I can expect at least 20% dislikes and a torrent of comments from people with anime avatars calling me a "shill" for recommending this browser.

This, I suspect, is because Brave has an optional extra feature: Brave Rewards, which is "too good to be true."




"Douglas Leith, professor of computer systems at Trinity University, examined six browsers for his report – Web Browser Privacy: What Do Browsers Say When They Phone Home? He found that Brave’s Chromium-based browser is the least likely to reveal unique identifying information about the computer using it."

More anti schizo-fud: https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2020/02/27/brave-beats-other-browsers-in-privacy-study/amp/

"Users looking for a privacy-focused browser might want to consider Brave first, according to a study published this week.

Douglas Leith, professor of computer systems at Trinity University, examined six browsers for his report – Web Browser Privacy: What Do Browsers Say When They Phone Home? He found that Brave’s Chromium-based browser is the least likely to reveal unique identifying information about the computer using it.

The study examined six browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Brave, Edge, and Yandex. It used several tests to deduce whether the browser can track the user’s IP address over time, and whether it leaks details of web page visits. To do this, it looked at the data shared on startup after a fresh install, on a restart, and after both pasting and typing a URL into the address bar. It also explored what the browser did when it was idle.

Even though Mozilla makes a talking point of privacy in Firefox, it was Brave, developed by Mozilla’s founder (and creator of JavaScript) Brendan Eich, that won out. Brave, which has accused Google of privacy violations, is “by far the most private of the browsers studied” when used with its out of the box settings, according to the paper.

The study placed browsers in one of three privacy classes, based on the time span over which they retain identifiers. Brave gets the top class all to itself because it uses what the study calls ‘ephemeral’ identifiers that link a handful of transmissions and then reset. This means it doesn’t remember your identifier across browser restarts.

The paper lumps Safari, Firefox, and Chrome together in the second band. These browsers share some privacy issues, the paper warns, including auto-tagging each browser instance with unique session and browser instance identifiers..."

Tldr: Brave, OOTB, BTFO other browsers in terms of privacy and security.

WARNING: Do NOT use Brave under any circumstance. If you believe in Bat tokens, buy them separately. Do NOT fall for the Browser/Ad scam.


>On its website, Brave claims that "Brave fights malware and prevents tracking, keeping your information safe and secure. It’s our top priority.". Yet despite this claim, Brave actually disables its tracking protections for Facebook and Twitter's scripts that allow them to track people across the web. Brave has been actively downplaying the role that JavaScript plays when tracking someone.

Brave has committed DONATION FRAUD:



Not only do they have sponsored backgrounds (recall Mozilla's Directory Tiles?) in their New Tab page but they were also earning big money from the included affiliate links without telling you (this is illegal and they've locked the convo as expected)! More recently, they were caught rewriting typed web addresses to add referrals for various partners. Brave Browser also has auto-updates (archive) that cannot be disabled which is extremely malicious (complete with a closed topic, of course - in a Mozilla-esque fashion). The only real reason to use Brave is their so-called Brave Rewards program with which you can earn their Basic Attention Tokens in exchange for watching ads (displayed as system notifications). Here's the catch: to pay out their BATshit tokens, you need an account on Uphold, whose Privacy Policy states this:

"To verify your identity, we collect your name, address, phone, email, and other similar information. We may also require you to provide additional Personal Data for verification purposes, including your date of birth, taxpayer or government identification number, or a copy of your government-issued identification"

It's a fork of vanilla Chromium, except with all the Google telemetry removed, and the best security settings enabled by default. Make sure to also install addons like uBlock Origin, httpseverywhere and Decentraleyes for optimal privacy and security.

If you like Firefox, you can get vanilla Firefox, but you'll want to mitigate the settings. The easy way is to just download a hardened user.js and put it in the correct appdata folder: https://github.com/arkenfox/user.js

Brave is self updating software, uses Google as the default search engine, has built-in telemetry, and even has an opt-out rss-like news feed similar to Firefox Pocket. These shouldn't be the things that come to mind if someone were to imagine a privacy oriented browser.

On its website, Brave claims that "Brave fights malware and prevents tracking, keeping your information safe and secure. It’s our top priority.". Yet despite this claim, Brave actually disables its tracking protections for Facebook and Twitter's scripts that allow them to track people across the web. Brave has been actively downplaying the role that JavaScript plays when tracking someone.

"Loading a script from an edge-cache does not track a user without third-party cookies or equivalent browser-local storage, which Brave always blocks and always will block. In other words, sending requests and receiving responses without cookies or other means of identifying users does not necessarily create a tracking threat."

This couldn't be more far from the truth. Just because a website isn't able to store cookies, doesn't mean it can't uniquely identify you. Using JavaScript from Facebook and Twitter would be more than enough to track you and blocking cookies alone isn't going to stop that. Just as a quick point of reference to what information JavaScript can scrape, you might want to visit this website:


Brave has built-in telemetry. While running, Brave will make lots of requests to the domain p3a.brave.com as telemetry. They claim they store the collected data for several days. Telemetry should be the last thing to come to mind if someone were to imagine a privacy oriented browser.

Brave has made waves thanks to its built-in privacy protections - such as AdBlock, HTTPS everywhere and script blocking - but in the end, they are outclassed by uMatrix. More than that - after checking them out, I can confidently say the Shields are pretty useless - the vast majority of trackers are left alone; in fact, sometimes it seems that a site can have hundreds of them, and yet none of them will be blocked by the Shields. Script blocking option simply blocks JavaScript fully - it's just NoScript revisited. Brave used to be able to install Chrome extensions only from source, but now does it the same as the other Chrome based browsers. Despite those, it not only spies on you:


but is actively working against your privacy by whitelisting Facebook and Twitter trackers. Brave has also been soliciting donations in the name of other people without their consent!

and aside from that, the system had been completely reworked since then and this is literally not even an issue. its a 2+ year old tweet from some fucking retarded boomer that didnt understand the system.

just like how everyone hate BTC at the beginning and will keep talking shit about it as they watch it skyrocket (see peter schiff)

>comprehensively proven
Show us one proven instance of Brave rewards serving malicious content. I'll wait.

Pro tip: There is none, because unlike some other Browsers, the dev team that maintains and develops Brave actually gives a shit about software freedom, user privacy, and data security. Hell, the sync feature in Brave utilizes blockchain technology (which also further decouples Brave from Google). You wouldn't know this though, because you're some wagie who got cucked by your own stupidity, and couldn't put together a simple bash script or a cron job to run rsync or fsarchiver periodically.

>but the end user doesn't get paid enough to actually care about these tokens, I think.
the amount of big name advertisers and the amount they spend is increasing quite drastically, which in turn will allow larger payouts to users.

the growing pain is that the user base is also expanding quickly, which means they need more ads for the users

in any case, when is the last time you heard people complain that they werent seeing enough ads? the system obviously works, it just needs to be perfected.

i believe there is a huge gap right now between the current state of bat/brave and what it will be in the near future, hence the reason i am bullish on BAT. i want to buy it before people realize this, not after they have and the price is already going up.

You're looking at this from a correct viewpoint but realistically your concerns only apply to .06% of all brave users.

Well it looks like im back guys. Just got confirmation of BMW motorgroup running ads on brave. If you dont have a 10k stack right now you should probably get one. Also im one BAT whale of many in my groupchat and we have been doing some pretty heavy analysis and accumulating for years. Collectively we probably have 1-2% of the supply. I dont want to name any names, but there is a guy pretty deep in the crypto game with a lot of money who has been spying on our group and I believe hes been trying to shake us out of our positions at $4 because we could potentially be a massive liquidity risk at $100+. He was telling one of our guys that $4 is very high for BAT lol. We all know better than that.

Yes, but a large portion of the data is randomized or "spoofed". Read up a little on canvas (though there are other vectors through which data can be gathered from a user visiting a site).

I'm just going to answer the one question that isn't a complete troll.
Users get BAT, yes? Let's connect the dots, here. Who gives users the BAT? Brave does. Where does Brave get them from? Either their own remaining BAT pool (dev fund?) or they have to buy it themselves.
You with me so far?
So, Users get 70% of the total that an advertiser pays to put the ad in front of the user. Brave gets the other 30% by acting as the publisher. This is the trifecta of Publisher/User/Advertiser.
Conclusion: The BAT comes from Brave themselves. The demand is partly from the users, partly from the advertisers.
Thanks for the good question. I usually answer it 1-3 times every BAT thread. Stay tuned for next thread!

>> No.29951257

is this english? ill try and answer some parts that i can sort of understand


the demand currently comes from advertisers buying ad space from brave. in the near future there will be expanded utility from features such as:

- self-serve ads platform
- publisher ads
- SDK which will allow BAT to be used on platforms outside the browser such as mobile games, apps, streaming services etc
- pay with bat feature
- themis
- brave mail
- defi
- NFT platform
- BAT used as fees from native crypto wallet
utility in search engines was announced (not sure how they will work that in)
- brave mail
- VPN subscriptions
- etc etc

im sure there are some things that im missing. that coupled with a user base thats growing rapidly is a winning combo. the first few years of brave was building out the browser, and now they are expanding the utility of BAT by a lot.

I think it's just different approaches, and Brave shows up as less unique on CoverYourTracks than FF does, even with multiple extensions installed, so I don't think it's a matter of less effective or more effective, overall. It appears that Brave reveals more info about the browser itself and the OS it's running on than FF does, and that's probably why captcha doesn't shit itself with Brave's fingerprinting protection (with the defaults at least): https://www.chrislockard.net/posts/fingerprinting-privacy-brave-vs-firefox/

I bet if you set fingerprinting protection to aggressive in Brave though, that captcha and some other commonly used web components would get fucky. Worth exploring though. Brave replaced FF as my default almost a year ago now, so I should probably dig into FF's resist fingerprinting feature a bit. I love both browsers regardless.

The ads are served via Brave itself in the form of notifications. Your web browsing habits and history have no effect on the ads. As has been mentioned several times, you're not going to be rolling in BAT from using rewards, and It's not going to be very effective outside of North America.

The payout isn't that high at all. I remember reading that the creators say they expect people to be able to earn up to like $250 in BAT a year using the browser. That is probably at an optimistic price point for people who know how to game the system perfectly.

I'm actually really surprised that brave is such a good browser. I thought it was just a meme but now I'm using it on everything. Easy replacement for chrome for all my casual browsing. All my normalfag friends will probably switch when I show them the adblocking on jewtube because none of them bother to use any adblockers.

A liquidity risk occurs when you have a few people with a large chunk of the supply. Typically when a company IPO's theres some filing paperwork that comes with a vesting period that states that certain parties can only sell so many shares at a time. The founder of the company starts out with 100% control but along the way peoples pieces of pie gets smaller and smaller. Once the company goes public you will have some people with 2,3,4% of a company worth tens or hundreds of billions, and they are only allowed to sell x amount of shares per year or quarter. With BAT though, we do not have a lockup. We own a couple percentage of the supply, and later on down the road it could become a real problem. A few people selling off 3% of the supply over the course of a week can be a problem if theres not ample liquidity.

Google has infrastructure built around selling data. It would not be easy to just dump that model and all the people working for/within those divisions. It also has key partnerships with the businesses they sell data to. Eliminating that in order to try some risky venture already first-moved by Brave may be too risky to do on their part. And by the time they do decide to switch over, even if it were quite soon, they have already cemented themselves as data sellers and I doubt it would bode well for them. Just imagine the image issue they'd have switching sides like that.
