You can earn cryptocurrency by browsing the web with Brave or by tipping articles on Publish0x. Better yet, you can multitask and tip articles using Brave. But which one earns you more crypto in a month? In May 2021, I browsed the web using Brave and tipped articles on Publish0x.
I earned $2.67 browsing with Brave and $2.18 tipping on Publish0x. Meaning, Brave browser won by $0.49. If I include the tips on my articles, which totaled $0.59, Publish0x would have edged out Brave by $0.10, but writing articles and creating graphics takes considerable effort compared to browsing the web so I excluded the tips on my published articles for this competition.
Brave browsing earned $0.49 more than Publish0x tipping
The downside of earning BAT through Brave is you can't transfer it directly to your own wallet. You need to share your personal details with a third-party wallet to gain full access to the BAT. Is the loss of privacy and risk of identity theft worth $2.67 of BAT?
In contrast, Publish0x allows you to directly withdraw to your own wallet (once you meet the withdrawal minimums). So Publish0x gets the win there. But is there any loser here? Earning crypto is a big win.
