Introduction to BAT Crypto
Digital advertising is a massive industry that generates billions of dollars in revenue annually. However, it is also riddled with problems that affect users, publishers and advertisers alike. Users are bombarded with intrusive and irrelevant ads that violate their privacy and consume their bandwidth. Publishers are losing revenue to intermediaries and fraudsters who manipulate the system.
How BAT Works
BAT is integrated into the Brave browser, a web browser that blocks third-party ads and trackers by default and allows users to opt-in to view privacy-preserving ads from verified advertisers. Users who choose to view these ads receive BAT rewards for their attention.
Publishers and content creators who join the Brave Creator Network can also earn revenue from user contributions, tips and ad revenue share. As a result, they can also benefit from increased user engagement, loyalty and retention and reduced fraud and intermediation costs.
Advertisers who use the Brave Ads platform can reach a highly engaged and relevant audience who have opted-in to view their ads. Advertisers only pay for verified views of their ads and receive better insights and feedback from their campaigns.
