Basic Attention Token (BAT) -- perhaps best known as the native utility token on Brave Browser -- is a crypto token that aims to fix the old digital advertising model using blockchain technology. To do this, Brave Browser connects users to content creators directly--allowing users to earn BAT tokens from advertisers by selecting an option to do so on the browser. This allows users to choose who they want to support while also browsing in a fast, private, and safe manner.
The amount of BAT a user can earn by watching an ad is calculated based on how much time that ad is seen in an active tab plus the number of visible pixels in the ad compared to the number of pixels that make up the rest of the page. In layman’s terms, the bigger the ad is on your screen, the more you can make.
In addition, publishers also earn BAT because the content they made brings users to their website where ads are located. Hence, publishers are inspired to make better content so they can earn from the users and users can earn from their ads. The more time a user spends watching a creator’s ad, then the more both can earn. The BAT token is also available for tipping content creators or to donate regularly. What makes this feature so popular amongst crypto enthusiasts is the privacy aspect.
Unlike donating or tipping with dollars in the real world, doing so with BAT is completely private and anonymous. As an ERC-20 token, every available transaction is publicly on the blockchain but the identity is always private. That allows you to tip to whoever you want without sacrificing privacy.
