Brave provides an ecosystem for users to earn, sell or even send (tip) cryptocurrency in the form of the Basic Attention Token (BAT) to your favorite websites and content creators that become a Brave Verified Publisher.
With a rating of 4.8 of out 5 stars and nearly 240,000 total reviews Brave becomes the top rated web browser on the Google PlayStore!

- Mozilla Firefox - 3.9
- Google Chrome- 4.1
- Microsoft Edge - 4.5
All you have to do to get started is download and install the browser on your PC or Mobile device, make sure to enable Brave Rewards to start earning your BAT as its turned off as default.
You can set the number of ads you want to see per hour from the default of 1 to the max of 5. Currently you can only support your favorite websites and content creators, or withdraw from Brave with your Uphold account. They say we will soon be able to spend the BAT on gift cards, premium content and more*
Since you're not truly escaping the giant data harvester that Google is unless you replace their search engine as well. Any good Brave post should have an honorable mention to Preseach as well.
Presearch is a new search engine that rewards its users in 0.25 PRE for each and every search up to a maximum of 32 PRE each day. So now when you go to "Google" something you use Presearch instead, support a good project and earn more crypto.
I personally use the Presearch browser extension that way I can use Brave as my web browser and Presearch as my search engine and earn both BAT & PRE with ease.
If you want to get started with Presearch think about using my Presearch Referral to sign up, the sign-up bonus for those who join through a referral link is 25 PRE tokens to get you started!
