You know that feeling when you spend hours of designing witty memes – while you should be doing other stuff?
Well, there is now a browser that can reward you for your efforts. According to the recent reports by CNET, the new web browser Brave can do that (and even more).
As a privacy-centric web browser launched by the Mozilla co-founder Brendan Eich, Brave is funded by an initial coin offering (ICO). The browser plans to roll out Reddit and Twitter tipping to its native cryptocurrency payments system.
After enabling the payment system through the browser’s settings page, users will be able to link to their social accounts and link them to the Basic Attention Token (BAT) wallets and with that, tip as well as accept tips from other users.
As the company said while announcing the feature, “the model will be tipping — a user likes a tweet and can give BAT to the tweeter, and optionally tweet back that he tipped.”
The new feature will be perfect for Twitch streamers and YouTube channel operators, as well as website owners. They can all register as Brave publishers and allow the acceptance of BAT payments from their viewers, readers or just fans.
Two months ago, the browser also began trialing a feature that allows users to earn cryptocurrency by opting-in to device-based ads that don’t track or expose user data. As of July 2018, the company reported that it had 3 million monthly active users across all devices and that they expect more than 5 million by the end of the year.
