Brave was first released back in January 2016 but has become very popular at that time. The browser is free and automatically blocks ads. Regardless, users can decide to receive payment for viewing ads. Payments are made in Brave’s native asset, the Basic Attention Token (BAT).
In October last year, Brave announced that its monthly active user count has hit 8 million. At the time, it said its daily user count hit 2.8 million. Brave had also earlier allowed people to tip accounts via Twitter.
