Imagine that everywhere you go, everything you do on the internet; are tracked and closely monitored. Then all of the information gathered about you is sold to the highest bidder by the internet giants (you know them). That’s how the internet works today, but there is a solution – Brave Browser.
“As a user, access to your web activity and data is sold to the highest bidder. Internet giants grow rich, while publishers go out of business. And the entire system is rife with ad fraud” –Brave.
What is Brave Browser?
Brave or the Brave Browser is the safest, fastest web browser yet –for Mac, Windows, Android, iOS and Linux. Brave is a “privacy by default” browser that blocks ads and trackers, out of the box –no need for bloated extensions or add-ons.
Brave is privacy on the internet; Brave is speed.
Let me ask you a quick question. What Browser are you using right now? If it’s not Brave then you should switch immediately because you’re not just losing money; you’re caged.
To help you decide quickly, here are 5 reasons why you should switch to Brave Browser today.
1. Brave Pays You for Your Attention
You spend so much money on data, get tracked all round and literarily sold to the highest bidder and even a cent of this money is not coming to you.
Turn on the Brave Rewards switch and get paid to view privacy-respecting ads. You can even set the number of ads you wish to see per hour or completely turn it off if you don’t want to see any ads.
For the first time in the world you have a choice on the internet; whether you want to see ads or not and if you decide to see them Brave pays you with its native digital currency –Basic Attention Token ($BAT) –amazing!
By the way; what is $BAT?
The Basic Attention Token is a digital token used as a unit of account of human attention in Brave Browser.
Users of Brave Browser like you get paid in $BAT for choosing to view privacy-respecting ads; content creators get tipped with the $BAT by supportive readers whilst advertisers pay with $BAT to get their ads shown to interested users of the Brave Browser.
The Brave team promises to release more features such as:
- Users like you to be able to spend $BAT on premium contents, gift cards and many other cool ways of spending your Basic Attention Tokens.
- Featuring Brave Ads on some Creator websites will feature, which helps them, earn more ad revenue than existing ad models.
The Basic Attention Token is designed to revolutionize the digital advertising industry by bringing advertisers, content creators, and viewers together and promoting their individual and mutual benefits.
The main goal is to fairly reward users for their attention, content creators, for their effort, and giving advertisers a better return on investment by paying for ads that are only shown to interested viewers whole more likely to interact with them.
$BAT is an Ethereum based, ERC-20 utility token with a total supply of 1, 500, 000, 000 and a circulating supply of 1,431,404,738 as of writing this post according to data from CoinMarketCap.
How much can you earn from viewing Brave Ads?
When you use Brave as your everyday browser, just like me; you can expect to earn up to $5 more or less worth of BAT a month depending on your region and a variety of factors.
The Basic Attention Token is one of the the best and highly undervalued cryptocurrencies you can invest in right now.
2. Brave Browser is Faster –I mean the fastest!
CNET.com conducted a battle test between Brave vs. Chrome and Firefox; guess what the result was. No! I’m not telling you, watch it yourself.
Brave loads web pages 3 to 6 times faster because by default ads and trackers that saps your data are disabled.
3. Brave Gives You Back Your Privacy
Does it bother you that someone, somewhere is literarily watching every single website you visit, knows exactly what you do there, every single time you go there and that’s not all; the browser you are using (NOT Brave) is sending your IP address and location back to the owners who are very happy to sell it to the big data miners for-profit and at your expense? Does it bother you?
Recently, a new study was conducted to find out “What Browsers Say When They Phone Home”. The test was carried out on the top six popular browsers: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based), Apple Safari, Brave, and Yandex in order to uncover what these browsers send back to the creators.
To cut the long story short, the study found that used out of the box, “Brave is by far the most private of the browsers studied” followed by Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.
Brave is the only web browser that did not use identifiers that allowed tracking of the IP address over time and did not share details of web pages visited to backend servers.
Here’s the full Report.
4. Brave Helps You to “Give Back”
Truly sharing is caring. Ever read some awesome article on a website and you’re like “oh wow!” and feel like saying thank with a small token (no matter how small?) Brave makes it easier for you to support your favorite sites with Brave Rewards.
Turn on Brave Rewards and give a little back to the sites you frequent most. Earn FREE $BAT for viewing privacy-respecting ads through Brave and help fund the content and websites you love.
You can help make the internet a better place and richer with fresh content by supporting the content creators you love at the amount that works for you.
You tip or contributions can be automatically distributed to the website(s) you support based on how much time you spend on the sites, or you can choose to tip the sites directly, and better still, you can set up a fixed monthly tip amount which gets sent to them automatically.
All the while keeping your browsing history private –your contributions are anonymously sent directly to the website owners, so you can’t be identified based on the sites you visit and support.
Currently, there are over 10,000 publishers and content creators who have registered to receive Brave Rewards, including this website. (We appreciate all of you sending tip our way and helping our authors to do more –Thank you!).
Contributions are optional and based on users’ good-will. Browsing the web with Brave is free.
5. Switching to Braave Browser is Easy: Bring Your Data and Settings along to Brave
It’s amazing how Brave manages to make everything super easy and cool. You can import your browsing data and settings from other browsers directly into Brave and continue where you left off –like nothing ever happened.
You can do this during the welcome tour after installing the Browser for the first time or later through the menu item labeled –“Import Bookmarks and Settings.”
