Brave Browser: 90% Ad Revune Cut Overnight?!

By Cje95 | Chronic Illness and Crypto | 25 Apr 2021

The last week or so my pending BAT rewards browser had been all over the place. At one point I had earned over 100 BAT already this month (impossible to do but ya know maybe they were giving me a gift?!?!) to 0.001 BAT. Yesterday both my computers finally started working again so I was super optimistic that the glitch had been patched/fixed. 


It was only today when I was checking in on the Brave Community page did I see the crazines that has gone on. Overnight according to everyone they began to only earn 0.001 to 0.005 BAT per ad. Thats a 90% to 50% cut overnight and with no explanation. The only reason I was able to learn that it was not an issue with something else was a guy took a screen shot of some part of the rewards coding to show everyone how it had been changed to the much much lower amount.  I have attached it below if you want to see for yourself. 




I was shocked to see this development. Right now companies are spending more than ever on ad's the economy is looking good and back on the mend and honestly internet useage has continued to be very high due to lockdowns. Now just earlier this week I sung praise to Braves Development team but now that is definetly on hold for the time being. A sudden cut for no apparent reason is not a good look. While the crypto market did just have a huge reversal it would make no sense to do this to the users.


The most concerning part of course is the complete lack of communitcation from either their blog or their twitter. Why were these code revisions made. Why are they not answering the peoples questions on the community page honestly waht is going on?! Now with the 20 max ads a day that count for you you can earn a whooping 0.02 BAT?! The amount of usage requred to hit that and the amount of interactions you have to had make it impossible.... that also like $0.03 USD? I mean its so stupid low. 


Let me know in the comments below if yall have any insite or info on what is going on! It is super sketchy for this and the complete lack of clarity and communication on Braves behalf.
