By Richard M Adrian | Crypto Info | 3 Oct 2019

Basic Attention Token (BAT)  is a digital currency developed by Brendan Eich’s on the Ethereum Blockchain. BAT  was established as an exchange market support to serve advertisers publishers and users. Furthermore, It can  pay expenses for data protection and advertisement. Such expenses include in-site advertisement campaigns. 


Meanwhile, we can easily presume BAT to be a unit of exchange. which can be converted into value rewards once a user views an advertisement or also while taking caution of an advertisement. Take this for instance, in today’s advertiser-publisher struggles. The advertiser pays for ad space on a publishing platform. 


Onwards, the publisher runs ads partly on the content they have on their platform. The content is usually offered for free to the user/viewer, as in the likes of Youtube and Vimeo. However, for the promoter to earn any reward from the ads, the viewer must also view the ad alongside the free content. 


Unfortunately, incase the viewer decides to skip the ad as with most cases. There is no CPI (Cost Per Impression). 


CPI is the amount an advertiser has promised to pay a publisher per 1000 views of an advertisement. 


BAT solves this challenge by rewarding users who might not view the advertisement but might react to the content. Additionally, the token also forms a fresh basis of rewarding both publishers, advertisers and users. Importantly, the advertiser uses the platform to get the best promoter for their products and services.
