    BAT Early Stage

    Brave already has an anonymized ledger system for making donations and payments to publishers based on user attention. The secure vault using the ANONIZE algorithm to ensure customer privacy is an important piece of the BAT ecosystem which is already in place and deployed in Brave. Brave is already measuring user attention at the browser and distributing donations to the publishers using this system.

    Pre-1.0 BAT
    • Brave Users: 115k
    • Active Wallets: 0
    • Market Cap: 0 $

    BATs promise

    BAT wallet integrated with the Brave browser. Verification and transactions to be handled by Brave’s internal Zero Knowledge Proof (ZKP) ledger system to protect individual user anonymity from advertisers, publishers and third parties. Ad inventory will be valued, and transactions will be calculated from reported Basic Attention Metric (BAM) data.

    1.0 BAT
    • Brave Users: 1 Million
    • Active Wallets: 4000
    • Market Cap: 100 - 450 Million $

    BAT Adoption

    Make the transfer and verification process entirely distributed on Ethereum using a state channel scheme with zero knowledge proof protocol for ensuring user privacy. Add alternate BAM metrics based on advertiser feedback. This will allow for full user privacy as well as a decentralized audit trail for advertisers, users and publishers to ensure they received correct payments for the advertising delivered through the BAT network.

    Post-1.0 BAT
    • Brave Users: 2 Million
    • Active Wallets: 8000
    • Market Cap: ATH

    Buisnes Model

    Brave uses its Basic Attention Token (BAT) to drive revenue. Originally incorporated in Delaware as Hyperware Labs, Inc. in 2015, the company later changed its name to Brave Software, Inc. and registered in California, where it is headquartered.
    By August 2016, the company had received at least US$7 million in angel investments from venture capital firms, including Peter Thiel's Founders Fund, Propel Venture Partners, Pantera Capital, Foundation Capital, and the Digital Currency Group.
    In November 2019, Brave launched an ad network which returns a 70 percent revenue share to users. The initial advertisements were coming from partners like Vice, Home Chef, ConsenSys, Ternio BlockCard, MyCrypto, and eToro.

Brave announced that expanded trials would follow. Later that month Brave added support for Tor in its desktop browser's private-browsing mode.
