The first version of the Brave browser was recently launched. The Brave browser was partially founded by Brendan Eich, who was previously the CEO of Mozilla. The browser features default settings that are optimized for privacy. It also has ads for cryptocurrencies, as well as payment platforms that distribute rewards.
In total, the browser has 8 million users a month, and the rewards program has approximately 300,000 creators involved. Some of the organizations involved include the Washington Post, The Guardian, Wikipedia, The LA Times and more.
The rewards program dictates that users will be compensated with Basic Attention Tokens as they view ads. The tokens are a cryptocurrency, which can be spent by users.
Brave also gives users the ability to open private browsing using the Tor network.
