How you can get paid by using the Brave Browser

Hello Fellow Steemians,

It’s about time I started writing more and I thought to myself what better way to do this by sharing something I finally set up recently. It is also related to the blockchain space and something I think can have tremendous value for creators. That’s right, what I’m talking about here is the Basic Attention Token (BAT) and Brave Browser.

This cryptocurrency comes from the creator of JavaScript and the co-founder of Mozilla and Firefox, with a very solid team. The 'Basic Attention Token' (BAT) is an open-source, decentralized ad exchange platform based on the Ethereum blockchain. I always thought that it was a funny name as well and it sure grabbed my attention. At the moment of writing this post it is ranked in top 30 cryptocurrencies on Coinmarketcap.

The first great thing I found about the Brave Browser is that it has a build-in shield for ads and trackers and you have full control of this to disable or enable it on the fly. Usually I would have to get a separate extension on Chrome to block all those annoying ads. And the added benefit is that Brave uses Chromium as is its base so you will see a lot of similarities in the menus and layout. You can even download and install other Chrome extensions from the Chrome Webstore. The Browser really feels lightweight and has amazing loading speed.

Brave also has some advanced privacy features, such as directly integrating with the DuckDuckGo search engine or Tor for advanced private browsing which hides your IP address. DuckDuckGo by the way is a great alternative for Google Search if you want a fresh search experience without anything tracking you.

So what’s in it for Creators? How can we also earn through this medium as we do on steemit?
As I have been using Brave Browser more frequently, I started to dive in deeper into its ecosystem and its use of the BAT Token as a way to reward Users and Content Creators by actually supporting ads that you can tolerate or even direct support websites (creators) by sending them a tip by them becoming a verified publisher and integrating it directly on their websites.
I have to thank my friend @timothylie for finally getting me to look more into this part of the browser and setting my website up so that I can also receive BAT tokens and of course support others who already use it. Feel free to show him some love and dropping him a tip at

In the screenshots below you can see how I can directly send him a tip through the browser as well as my current wallet balance. I can choose to do this monthly or as a one time transaction. And as a verified publisher he can even place a custom message in the banner and link to other channels such as Twitter.

Let me know in the comments below if you would like a detailed post on how to set this up on your own website to accept these tokens. Currently I have already integrated it on my Personal Website and my YouTube Channel.
I would especially like to encourage some of my friends here on steemit to give it a shot.


If you haven’t tried the Brave Browser yet, feel free to give it a try and you can always support me by downloading it through my Referral Link.

Hit me up on Twitter and let’s get a conversation going.



Woah! Awesome! I'm already using Brave Browser, but I didn't know about becoming a verified content creator to receive BAT.

Thanks a bunch for sharing the information with us! 🔥💪

Hahahaha, aren't we all guilty of that for something. All it takes sometimes is to be Brave enough to take that single first step 😉

Yup. And thank you for being that Brave human being

Will have to try Brave once again. I didn't like the weird layout when I downloaded it; felt like it was trying to be Chrome but not quite, and so I think it's a matter of getting used to it.

I know what you mean, I had the same feeling in the beginning. But as I've been using it more it kinda grows on you and just becomes normal. I remember going through the same thing over 10 years ago when Chrome just started as well. And the extra features it has are quite interesting for me

It still feels rather different from chrome, though. I don't see any similarity to it at all.

Posted using Partiko Android

It's more in the back-end stuff like the settings area as well as the developer features. The fact that you can just use extensions from the chrome store also just adds to it.

How do you even get to the menus though? Via the keyboard, I can't find a method to do so. Being blind doesn't help in this situation, because clicking the mouse is impossible for

The hamburger / 3 dots icon on the top right right under the close button.

Check out the Brave Dev. browser; they say it's not stable but it does enables the ad rewards there. I haven't had any issues with the Brave Dev. browser yet.

Cool, thanks for sharing this is well Tim. I'll look more into the ad rewards soon as well
