You'll earn BAT for viewing ads. Eventually you will be able to withdraw your BAT or use it to pay for premium content/services from the browser.

You can't earn any. That's the point. All you're doing is PAYING for an adblock, which will take your money and distribute it to the people you want it to. So if you watch a certain youtuber a lot, a big chunk of your PAYMENTS will go towards him.

You don't make money with Brave/BAT. You give it away

Ahhh, but then what's the incentive over something like uBlock? I see the incentive for an ad agency, but what about from the user's perspective?

You dumb fucking retarded go read the FAQ you can block all ads for free. You will get bat for viewing if you have them on. They haven't implemented earning them yet. Right now they just give you an amount of bat from the user growth pool to help grow the platform.

Ffs at least read the FAQ or the white paper before you fud



>> No.6697885

This is almost 100% incorrect.

You can't "earn" BAT at the moment, but later this year it will automatically generate from having "Brave ads" turned on. Then eventually you'll be able to do a bunch of stuff with the generated BAT, like withdraw from your wallet, donate to content creators, pay for things, etc.

yeah because i really want to look at ads for a few cents a month. get fucking real, adblock is here to stay and this isn't going to displace shit in the first world.

maybe a few third world shits will happily farm the fuck out of this for tokens, and it wont be long before advertisers realize that theyre paying only for a bunch of worthless pajeet eyeballs and will pull out or drastically cut the amount of money that gets paid.

>> No.6699618

The problem I have with BAT is it takes on two hurdles, change the online ad industry, which Google will never do, AND try to win the browser war, which is almost insurmountable. The fact of the matter is, with browsers, people have made their vote clear. They want integrations, and their google profiles are as close to an online wallet as we’re gonna get.

I think it’s an ambitious project, and I’d love to see less chrome usage, but I just don’t see it happening. The browser war has a firm first place, and while I do believe the number 1 spot can be taken down, I don’t think it’ll be Brave that does it.

naturally geared towards people that browse exclusively on mobile devices and just download whatever adblocker comes up first for "adblock" on the app store? and when they see ads showing up what do you think they're going to do?

i highly doubt it has a better adblock that ublock, for example. it's a lot of work to stay on top of internet malware and it takes a lot of volunteers to maintain lists and workarounds. either they use those lists and be at best equal, or they play catchup.

the amount of kyc/"vetting" they're going to have to do is insane if they expect to keep fraud at bay, it will certainly not be as easy as installing an app and being able to earn tokens unless you're happy making a few cents a month.

This is what I'm saying. I knew Internet Explorer sucked right away, switched to Mozilla.

I CLEARLY remember switching ti Chrome, and I was an "early adopter". It was even a slow adoption, because I was so used to Mozilla, and everybody I knew used Mozilla before Chrome.

"Things will never change because this is how they are" is such a fucking dumb argument. I realize change is slow and Chrome has a tight hold on everyone, but if the product is good enough, change is inevitable.

I'm holding BAT but whats preventing me from using Brave is lack of a proper all round dark theme. I'll switch if I get an option to remove all that white, my retinas can only take so much.
As for the rest of it, I'm ok with actually helping out creators with their ad revenue. The whole point for normies like me is having the option to. Without it I will just keep using uBlock indefinitely. Maybe it will include different forms of content and I can use the system to make BAT myself, so that would be a nice addition.

I’m not saying there will never be a change. In fact, I very clearly say I don’t think that in my post.

I just don’t think Brave is going to be the winner. Firefox, right now, put out a browser that’s just as fast as chrome, sometimes faster. They rebuilt it in Rust so the team can move quicker. I genuinely don’t believe Brave will be a top 3 browser.
