About Brave browser[edit]

Brave Software is an open source web browser with a built-in free AdBlock, tracking and security protection, optimized data, and battery experience. The Brave team built a privacy-focused, performance-oriented browser, founded by the inventor of Javascript and co-founder of Mozilla. The Brave browser anonymously monitors user attention, then rewards publishers accordingly with Basic Attention Token (BAT).

Brave Rewards lets you anonymously support the sites you visit. With Brave Rewards, your browser tallies the attention you spend on the sites you visit and divides up a monthly BAT contribution among sites based on your attention.

No registration is required to fund your wallet via cryptocurrencies; users can add funds with BTC, LTC, ETH or BAT by making a transfer to the corresponding wallet address. Note that non-BAT funds sent to the Brave wallet will automatically be converted to BAT, and the balance will be held in BAT by your wallet.

For users who wish to convert fiat into BAT, you can do so by registering with Uphold or other exchanges. Note that for exchanges other than Uphold, a standard cryptocurrency network fee will apply to the transfer in addition to any exchange fee.

In the future we will add the ability to directly fund your wallet with a credit card in the browser.

Brave Rewards is available for the desktop. However, a future update will include mobile integration.
