The latest Brave Browser Beta apparently features Brave Ads available for testing (the Beta version of the browser is a separate install and will not affect an existing installation of the official Brave browser if already installed!). After activating Brave Rewards users can opt in to view private ads and will be able to claim BAT tokens accumulated for having viewed ads. At the moment the only setting you have available for the Brave Ads is the number of ads you will be shown per hour (1 to 5). We were interested to see how the new Brave Ads feature actually works, but in 30 minutes deliberately trying to see at least 1 ad we have been unsuccessful so far. You are welcome to give it a try and see if you will have more luck and if you do feel free to leave a comment below…

Brave is trying to attract more users with yet another monthly giveaway of about $500,000 USD in promotional Basic Attention Tokens (BAT) to Brave desktop browser users. The new BAT grant program gives users approximately 5 USD in promotional BAT. The grants, which must be used for the benefit of content creators within 90 days, come from the User Growth Pool (UGP), a fund of 300 million tokens set up to give users and publishers an incentive to join the BAT platform. Users can claim the grants via a notification they will receive or by checking the status of the integrated Payments settings or preferences panel in the latest Brave browser (version 0.22.727). The grants can be used to support users’ favorite sites, YouTube channels, and Twitch streamers.

Brave currently has 2.7 million monthly active users and over 16,000 creators (including YouTube and Twitch accounts) have joined the Brave Publishers program. Brave users donate to creators with BAT they purchase and load into Brave Payments, or that are gifted to them from BAT grants. Previously, $1M equivalent in BAT was allocated to creators from BAT originally gifted from the UGP in January 2018 to Brave users.

Brave has announced that now Twitch streamers can also start to earn revenue in connection with the Brave browser and the Basic Attention Token (BAT). Brave has seen strong growth of new users and creators (including thousands of YouTube channels) after recent announcements and now it seems that it is time for Twitch streamers to join in with a new way to get supported by their viewers. For those new to Brave, it is a faster, more private browser that also includes Brave Payments, a built-in method of supporting content creators. The Brave browser is integrated with the Basic Attention Token (BAT) using the Brave Payments feature, so that audience members can give to support their favorite publishers, YouTube creators, and Twitch streamers using the crypto tokens.

The Brave browser lists the viewed Twitch channels in the Payments list, so that fans can donate tokens every month. Twitch streamers simply register as Brave Publishers to start receiving BAT contributions from Brave users. Twitch streamers can register their channel alongside other properties they may have (Web site, YouTube channel) as part of Brave’s multi-property support. Brave uses the Twitch.tv API to authenticate Twitch channels, after the streamer’s email is confirmed by the system. Once the verification process is complete and the streamer opens an account with Uphold, they can start receiving BAT contributions every 30 days.
