In addition to monetary aspects, the purpose of which is to facilitate the transition from funding websites through advertising to the model tokenization, Brave also working to increase the level of privacy.
“Users are increasingly annoyed by the lack of privacy in the online space, as well as the revenue model, which plundered their data,” reads the company blog.
The developers indicate that content creators are often faced with the loss of a significant part of their income due to advertising intermediaries, fraud or as a result of “illegal rules demonetization of the platforms that use their content”.
The goal of the platform. BAT “to reconfigure the system”, rewarding users and content creators, increasing the income of the past through the restoration of links between them and users (and soon advertisers) at the same time “respecting the users’ right to privacy.”
