Basic Attention Token

Uphold provides a transparent and secure way to buy, hold and exchange Basic Attention Token (BAT). 

 

WHAT IS BAT: BAT is a digital advertising token built for the Brave browser on top of the Ethereum network. The idea is to remove privacy-invading cookies and trackers that built a data profile based on your browsing history by offering publishers a different way to monetize their content through BAT.

How does it work? By opting into Brave Payments and choosing to see Brave Ads in the Brave browser, users reward their favorite publishers and also generate BAT based on their browsing habits. In fact, the expected revenue share rate will be 70% of ad-revenue for viewing direct-to-user ads in private ad slots. Publishers who opt into this new system receive 70% of ad revenue while users who view the ads will receive 15% of that revenue.
