After 3 Years Of Beta Testing, Brave Browser 1.0 Has Just Been Released! Hacked Version Of Chrome Pays Users Crypto...

The Brave Browser has grown in popularity at a steady pace since its inception in 2016, but there's still so much people don't seem to know when it comes to this privacy-focused alternative.

With multiple startups trying out the crypto reward model for browsing the web with their browser, let's take a look at who holds the top spot among them.

Released in 2016... but not officially, until now!

Okay, even I wasn't aware of this. But until a couple days ago, Brave wasn't officially 'released' - if you used it, you were technically helping them beta test it.

The fact it took 3 years for them to feel confident enough to consider it complete, means it's running smoothly and as intended for the vast majority of people.

I mean, 3 years of testing!? They better have worked out any bugs! Personally, we haven't experienced any.

Brave = Chrome... without the creepiness!

Possibly the biggest factor, and what actually convinced me to download it - if you like Google Chrome there's really no excuse not to use Brave instead - because it is Chrome!

How so? Well, Google releases Chrome as an open source project called Chromium, meaning developers can then download the code, and modify it as they wish.  In the case of Brave, they've stripped away every creepy tracking tool Google had built in.

So, unless you're saying "But I like knowing Google can see what i'm up to! In fact, I've always wanted a big brother - I actually find it comforting!" you should be using Brave by now.

Since at it's core it is Chrome, most plug-ins and extensions made for Chrome will work on Brave!

An entirely new monetization model...

"Today's Internet is broken" says Brave co-founder and CEO Brendan Eich, that's why they set out to replace it "with something better that works for everyone".

Also recently launched, Brave's advertising network. Unlike any of the top advertising platforms, the revenue is shared between Brave and the person viewing the ad (you).  You'll also earn tokens just for being a user, some of which are then distributed to the websites you've visited. 

Own a website? YouTube channel? You can register it with Brave, and when people using the browser visit your site, you'll receive some of the funds they're distributing automatically.  The more time people spend on your site, the larger your share. 

The numbers are pretty impressive so far too - at the time of publishing there are 35889 websites participating, but keep in mind 1 site be home to multiple creators.  So, YouTube counts as just 1 of those sites, but Brave says there's already 220,000+ YouTubers signed up.

This feature has expanded from YouTube and now allows users of Twitch, Reddit, Vimeo, GitHub, SoundCloud and Twitter to register their usernames with Brave, and start to recieve tokens from their followers.

The Token...

A couple of times now, people I've spoken with knew of their "Basic Attention Token" which trades under 'BAT', but didn't know it was the token for the Brave Browser.

It began the year at $0.13 USD, but currently is treading at $0.25 USD, so things have gone well for those who got involved so far.

You also won't have any problems turning that token into cash when the time comes, it's listed at many major exchanges, like Binance, Coinbase Pro, Kraken, etc.

The Crypto Press Association team agrees that Brave Browser gets an "absolutely worth trying" endorsement from us - so give it a shot! You can download it free here!

Addition Of DOGE, BAT, and ZRX Bring the Total to 24 Coins, On the No-Fee Trading Platform 'Voyager'...

The new trading platform Voyager, created by former execs of E-Trade, Uber, and other giants, has announced another batch of new tokens added to the platform.

DOGE, BAT, and ZRX, bringing the total to 24 crypto assets available.

Claim $25 worth of any them for free...

If you haven't tried it out yet, you can still claim the $25 welcome credit, which comes in BTC but can instantly be traded for any of the coins the platform supports.

But what's really drawing people in - no trading fees!

They do this by searching multiple exchanges instantly and grabbing the best price, so confident their app will find you a price below the market average, their fee comes from splitting the savings with you!

If Voyager can't find a below-market price deal, they take the loss and still give it to you without fees.

They claim to successfully find customers a lower price on 90% of orders.

3 New Assets...

With the addition of DOGE, BAT, and ZRX, Voyager now offers access to 24 crypto assets with USD.

BAT, Blockchain-Based Digital Advertising

Basic Attention Token (BAT) is a blockchain-based digital advertising and rewards token from Brave Software. The Basic Attention Token is an Ethereum-based ERC20 token that enables advertisers, publishers, content creators, and developers to reward each other for their services.

DOGE, Peer-to-Peer Digital Currency

Dogecoin (DOGE) started from an internet meme as a joke but its passionate community helped grow the cryptocurrency to a $341 million market cap. DOGE is similar to Bitcoin but it's much easier to mine (or "dig' as its referred to in the DOGE protocol). Unlike Bitcoin, DOGE has an unlimited supply and more than 120 million coins have already been mined.

ZRX, Open Protocol Powering Decentralized Exchanges

Ox (ZRX) is an open protocol that enables the peer-to-peer exchange of assets on the Ethereum blockchain. Ox is creating an infrastructure to enable decentralized exchanges and applications to build on top of its blockchain.

Voyager is worth a look, and worth the time to do it when you claim $25 and open your free account here.

Also still going for a limited time: Hold 50 MCO tokens (the official token of the platform) and get an instant $50 credit.

Then, since you own 50 of their tokens you'll immediately be able to claim your Crypto Visa Card and begin earning "crypto back" on every purchase you make.

They'll even pay your Netflix and Spotify bill every month!
Between this and cash back, they're giving users some serious incentive to use the card. So obviously, you'll need to bill Netflix and Spotify your Crypto Visa card, and they'll reimburse you.

To claim these bonuses before joining, register for them by submitting your e-mail address here first.

But the big news today is the addition of BAT and LINK to their interest earning program.
  • Basic Attention Token (BAT) aims to improve the efficiency of digital advertising. BAT is a utility token that can be exchanged between publishers, advertisers, and users on the Brave platform, which leverages blockchain to provide digital advertising and services. The token also powers the Brave web browser, a free and open-source web browser developed by Brave Software Inc.
  • Chainlink (LINK) provides a secure, decentralized “blockchain middleware”, while also providing a way to access the multiple inputs and outputs needed by a complex smart contract. By simplifying how smart contracts can securely access key off-chain resources, Chainlink aims to accelerate the development of increasingly useful smart contracts.
That brings the list of tokens they're paying interest on to 11 total, including BTC, ETH, LTC, XRP, BNB, TUSD, PAX, USDC, MCO with the addition of BAT and LINK.

Interest is paid out weekly, and you can choose to have your coins locked up for as little as 1 month at a time.

If you own any qualifying tokens and want to learn more, begin by claiming the bonuses here first.
