How to donate in Brave Browser

Brave is a web browser with integrated ad-blocker that offers alternative ways to support web publishers that aren’t your run-of-the-mill ad:

  • Donating/Tipping
  • In-Site and In-Browser Ads targeted by the content you’re looking right now, not your browsing and app usage collected by the ad provider.

Brave is on a mission to fix the web by giving users a safer, faster and better browsing experience – while growing support for content creators through a new attention-based ecosystem of rewards.

Founded by JavaScript’s creator, Brendan Eich, Brave has been funded with USD$35 million in an ICO (Initial Coin Offering).

How to donate/tip in Brave Browser?

Advertisers and Publishers use Brave’s cryptocurrency BAT to settle payments (as of february 2019 1 BAT equals USD$0.11).

Brave has made the onboarding of users to the cryptocurrency really simple. Actually you won’t even know you’re using blockchain technology.

Step 1. Download Brave Browser

If you haven’t downloaded Brave Browser yet, please follow this link to install it: Install Brave Browser

(Available for Windows, macOs, Linux, Android and iOS)

Step 2. Activate Brave Rewards

Once you install Brave Browser activate Brave Rewards by clicking the BAT icon (the triangle) in the address bar.

By activating Brave Rewards, Brave Browser creates in the background a cryptocurrency wallet for you. It doesn’t cost any money and you won’t have to remember passwords. Any BAT you deposit or earn by watching ads will be credited on your account.

Step 3. Use your BAT

BAT is a real cryptocurrency token that can be exchanged, but as of february 2019 In-Browser BAT can’t be redeemed outside the browser.

What you can do is support your favorite content creators by tipping them, and in some cases get access to premium content paying with BAT.

Once you visit a website that is a verified publisher, you can click the BAT icon (the triangle) and click in “Send a tip”. You can spend your earned BAT or add funds.

This website is a Brave verified publisher. I am offering Brave as an alternative way of donation at Tiny Addons for WPBakery Page Builder.
