About the Brave platform and BAT application

The Brave browser represents the core of the BAT ecosystem. Anonymous online advertising platform, Brave aims at beating fraud and avoiding privacy violations in the digital advertising space. Users of the Brave can choose whether to watch ads, and the browser monitors their behavior in real time. Advertisers pay in BAT for the opportunity to offer their products to interested users.

According to the project, Brave has reliable fraud protection. The platform takes all reasonable measures to ensure the security of personal data. To earn BAT coins, a user watches ads. While scammers are deprived of this opportunity. In fact, the service interacts only with real advertisers and potential buyers.

Users can use BAT outside the Brave network. For example, software developers can integrate it into other browsers. Then, connect directly to a large advertising system.

Both Brave and BAT strive to benefit all participants in the system. Advertisers can optimize their work by offering products only to an interested audience. While users can get a reward for viewing information that is useful to them. Besides, BAT owners can use coins to buy exchange services or sell them to other participants.
