Brave browser users can tip individual content creators on Twitter with Basic Attention Token (BAT). When users visit Twitter with the Brave desktop browser, and have enabled Brave Rewards, they will see a new “Tip” button on each tweet.
Clicking on this button will allow the users to send BAT directly to the author of the tweet for an amount of their choosing. Brave users who have enabled Brave Rewards earn BAT by viewing privacy-preserving Brave Ads, or can purchase BAT and load them into their Brave Rewards wallet.
To kick off this new feature, Brave will be allocating 100,000 BAT grants (each grant is the BAT equivalent of approximately $1) to our desktop users in regions not currently receiving Brave Ads. Grants can be received by clicking on the “accept” button in Brave Rewards.
Brave Browser Rewards
This feature is an expansion of Brave Rewards, which already includes the ability to support Web sites, YouTube creators, and Twitch Streamers. There are nearly 60,000 verified creators in Brave Rewards.
Soon, Brave users will also have the option to support more content platforms, including Reddit, GitHub, and Vimeo. Brave Rewards is part of our new path toward a better Internet, where users can browse the web, earn rewards, and support content creators while preserving their privacy.
