Basic Attention Token
Basic attention token (BAT) is a new type of crypto asset that was developed to change the relationship between publishers, advertisers, and users.
Basic Attention Token is a token realized as a contract on an Ethereum blockchain which was developed to be used in the Brave browser which blocks unwanted ads and trackers.
Brave is a next-generation browser that brings high-speed browsing by blocking unnecessary advertisements and trackers and is privacy-friendly. It has a system for anonymously measuring user interest and paying publishers the appropriate rewards.
Users who see ads in Brave can gain BAT point rewards, which they can send to the creators and websites they like.
Brave was released in November 2019, and as of November 2019, has over 10 million monthly active users.
