Brave Browser changes its Global Referral Rate: September 30th, 2019 is the last day for a user to receive $5 BAT equivalent.

By ModernEuler | Moderncrypto | 26 Sep 2019

As you know guys, Brave is an open-source, privacy-focused web browser created by Brendan Eich (CEO) and Brian Bondy (CTO) through Brave Software, which is based on San Francisco, USA.


Brave Browser was launched on January 20, 2016, with an ad-blocking feature and a revenue-sharing program which allows users to earn a share of ad revenue in crypto tokens for seeing privacy-respecting advertisements. Rewards are denominated in BAT tokens and accrue in the user's in-browser cryptocurrency wallet.


The company have decided to change their policy of one global referral rate and replace it with geography-based referral rates with a specific focus on the areas where Brave can deliver ads. So, September 30th, 2019 will be the last day for a user to install Brave and receive the old rate of $5 BAT equivalent. Starting on October 1st, 2019 the company will change the gloabal $5 BAT referral rate to install Brave and new area-based rate for your location will be applied.

The rate has not been changed for group 3 countries which are basically middle income, western countries, and Asian tigers. 

The rate has been lowered by $3 for group 4 countries which are developing countries.

The rate has been lowered by $4 for group 5 countries which are basically low-income countries. 


Global adoption of Brave is increasing rapidly. Brave has now more than 250 K verified publishers around the World. Wikipedia is only one of them. It is already #1 Android Browser Application In Japan.(see the details here)

So, the Brave Browser's unique attributes will make it VERY attractive to internet users and the BAT program'll revolutionize the ads business. It will outperform Google #Chrome, #Mozilla #Firefox.


So, the advantages of Brave Browser over Chrome and other browsers:

1-Faster, safer
