    Brave Browser Adds Verified Publishers with Millions of Subscribers; The Guardian, Wikihow, Washington Post, Coinmarketcap Included

    Brave Browser’s verified publishers’ list keeps on growing as it surpasses 55,000. Currently, the figure is 104,048, as per the data provided by Bat Growth. Out of these, 77,161 are Youtube Brave/BAT publishers, 19,291 detected websites, and 7,596 belongs to Twitch.

    However, the constantly growing numbers aren’t the only thing that has the community excited as the platforms and websites added are something to gush about as well.

    These sites include The Guardian, Wikihow, Washington Post, DuckDuckGo, Coinmarketcap, Vimeo among many others. With publishers like First We Feast that has 5.8 million subscribers, this can help Brave get to reach 10 million monthly active users (MAU) even sooner. In early January this year, Brave had reported monthly active users passing 5.5 million and has crossed more than 20 million downloads.

    Rewards

    Just recently, the privacy-focused browser launched its first advertising platform. This will allow users to earn 70 percent of ad revenue share in the platform’s native cryptocurrency Basic Attention Token (BAT) as a reward for giving their attention to an ad.

    This blockchain-powered platform created by Brendan Eich, the founder of Mozilla and JavaScript focuses on user privacy and security, by showing only those ads from the brands that the user is interested in.

    Brave is an attempt to disrupt the current advertising model that could very well upset over $600 billion market that is fast gaining traction.

    BAT Up 210% in 2019

    All of this is working in favor of BAT as the 22nd largest cryptocurrency is currently up over 211 percent, till now in 2019. At the time of writing, Basic Attention Token (BAT) has been trading at $0.407 with 24-hours gains of more than 9 percent, as per Coinmarketcap data.

    BAT is among the top gainers in the cryptocurrency market currently, moreover, it is among the very few cryptos that have registered a whopping 200 percent surge in 2019.

    Forking Brave’s Open Source Code

    The success of Brave has now led Gab, the free-speech proponent social media network to built its own web browser. This forked version of the open-source Brave browser is looking to be released within the next few weeks but Brave CEO Eich isn’t happy with this as he wrote on Twitter, “Brave is for users who dare to take back control of their data. Some[one] who wants a detached comment system can use Dissenter.”

    However, Andrew Torba, who heads Gab claims, the “point of open source is to allow others to build upon an existing codebase and add more value.” He further added Brave itself is “a fork of the Google Chromium project.”
