The irresistible rise of ad blockers has claimed many victims. Some companies are trying to find workarounds. This is the case with the editor of the Brave browser. The latter offers to pay users who watch advertising on their smartphone. Where to register and how does this program work? We will explain everything to you..
What is the Brave Ads program?
You can no longer count the number of sites extolling the merits of a magic solution to become a millionaire in a few weeks without ever leaving your cozy sofa. Obviously these are anarchs whose sole purpose is to extract money or personal information from you.
Keep in mind, however, that some sites actually make money. This is the case, for example, of the Brave editor. The latter is launching a new service offering to pay internet users to watch advertisements on their smartphones..
Concretely, once registered in the Brave Ads program, advertisements will appear in the form of notifications in the status bar of your smartphone. Important detail, they in no way replace those displayed on websites. You can even choose the number of ads that will appear on your phone each hour (between one and five ads).
The ads viewed are then converted into cryptocurrencies called BAT (Basic Attention Tokens) and then placed in a digital wallet. This money can then be spent in the form of gift cards, vouchers from partner sites..
Obviously the sums paid will not allow you to lead a great life. According to some estimates, users registered in the Brave Ads program can earn between $ 60 and $ 70 in the first year of launch.
But if advertisers are receptive to this new program and multiply the campaigns, the publisher hopes to increase this figure. Participants may thus see their remuneration increase sharply. But we are not there yet.
Introducing the Brave Browser
The Brave browser was launched in January 2016 by Bredan Eich, the co-founder of the Mozilla project. To make the competition from behemoths like Google Chrome very strong, Brave Browser has access to its entire strategy around respect for privacy and the confidentiality of personal data.
It was also one of the very first web browsers to offer a native ad blocking tool. It also has tools to thwart tracking tools such as cookies and advertising scripts. Note that the Brave browser does not participate in any data collection process.
