We have already talked about the new Brave browser and their Basic Attention Token (BAT) as a means to offer users an alternative to browse the web faster, safer and also to be able to support their favorite websites or Youtube video with regular crypto currency donations (coins or tokens). Well, if you still have not tried the Brave browser now you have a good reason to give it a try as you can get 30 BAT tokens for free if you do (a little over $6 USD value) to use to support your favorite online publications. Do note that this is a limited promotion as Brave will grant 300,000 promotional tokens to browser users, so make sure you get yours before they run out.
The promotion rules state that Brave browser users will receive promotional Basic Attention Tokens (BAT), which must be used within 90 days, via their Brave wallets after they opt into the offering or they will be lost. You need to download and use or update to use the latest desktop browser release (0.19.105) to receive the promotional BAT offer right after you activate the Brave Payments feature of the browser. The tokens will be released from the User Growth Pool (UGP), which was created during the sale of the utility tokens in May 2017. The UGP consists of 300 million tokens set aside to incentivize users to join the Brave platform. This initial promotion has a cap of 300,000 tokens and it will be distributed to current and new Brave users over the next 30 days or until the cap is reached.
This promotion is a one-time grant of BAT available for:
– Users who have not installed Brave, but download it during the promotion;
– Users who browse with Brave, but have not yet enabled Brave Payments;
– Users who have enabled Brave Payments, but have not added funds to their wallet; and
– Users who have enabled Brave Payments and who already have funds in their wallet.
