I’m an avid Brave user. The second I learned I could earn cryptocurrency just from using a browser, I switched immediately.
Coming from using Google Chrome for years, Brave was a welcomed experience. Since Brave is built using Chromium, the same browser project as Chrome, the user experience was almost identical, with a few very large differences. Great differences.
My favorite feature is the Invasive Ads Blocker.
While watching YouTube videos in Chrome, many YouTubers enable ads (in order to get paid for their work). You must sit through 1 to 2 ads before you’re allowed to view the video you want. Some videos have ads more than that!
While that method does pay YouTubers a small commission via Google Adsense, everything is controlled by Google, and the majority of that ad revenue goes directly into Google’s deeeeeeeeeeep pockets.
What if you could eliminate those ads and allow you, the user, to decide how much to pay the YouTubers (of your choosing) with the free cryptocurrency earned from browsing the internet?
With Brave, you can do just that. It’s called “tipping a Brave Creator” and everyone can participate in this program.
How to Earn More Crypto
With Brave, you “earn crypto tokens for your attention by opting in to privacy- preserving, first-party ads.” In your Brave Rewards settings, you can select to view up to 10 ads per hour.
Even though I have selected the maximum number of ads to show, I really don’t notice them. I haven’t seen an ad since I started using Brave, which should show just how awesome this browser is!
