Basic Attention Token (BAT) - My #1 Bet & Why

Basic Attention Token (BAT) - My #1 Bet & Why

By Thomas Wolf | Thomas Wolf's Den | 20 Aug 2020

Basic Attention Token (BAT) arguably has the strongest following of any cryptocurrency created in the last three years since its launch in 2017.

I would call it third only to Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), regardless of what the numbers say at this moment in time.

Having the backbone of the Brave browser to keep the community strong has been highly effective for the token.  I expect larger gains than as of late, which are substantial.

Update 8-22-2020: The entire market is down, and with the dive came a 9.47% hit to BAT.  This was predictable because BAT was up higher than the rest of the market at the time of the dip.

However, the token is still far up over the week and holding its initial pump to the mid-market price of $0.37 USD which is exactly what I hoped to see.  Now, when the market recovers from this dip BAT will have established a stable mid-market price out of its initial 20-cent range:
BAT 8-22-20

Update 8-21-2020:  It appears my assumptions were correct.  BAT went against most of the market during dips and continued to flow in the positive during the rises which had the token peak out at $0.43c USD - the highest the token price has gone in two years!

8-20-20: BAT is currently up over 25% this week, reaching a high of $0.43c USD and now holding around $0.38-$0.41c USD after being hard-stuck under $0.27c for most of August:
BAT 8 21 20

The initial pump earlier this week:

I've supported and promoted the token while HODL'ing for over six months now.  I wish I'd hung onto all of my BAT, but bills had to be paid - I accumulated well over 1,000 BAT just by being an author here on Publish0x between tips and Brave content creation via browser promotion.

Talk about being lonely on the profit board this morning; BAT is a real odd-ball today:

I get quite a lot of ad rewards each month, as well.  However, now that I am back at work that will all slow down.

Almost the entire market is down today while BAT remains up; it's an obvious flex from the token in Q4, I am hoping to see a wild end of the year with crypto in general - but I am betting on it with BAT.

I'm waiting for market drops and now investing in crypto via work income and I am not taking my eye off the ball when it comes to BAT.

Ethereum 2.0 remains extremely promising and the DeFi markets have been great for flipping.  I highly recommend you use ChangeNOW alongside CoinbasePro and use Stellar Lumens (XLM) for your exchanges and general transfers.

It's faster, cheaper, and better for the environment!

At least now that I am back at work, I add to my portfolio - I don't dip into it; I'll get anything I lost back and more.

I got the day off work today and I'm going walleye fishing with my best buddy - my bosses son.  A rare thing now that we both have adult lives, lol - I am only 30 and damn did it fly by.

How are you fellow BAT HODL'ers out there liking the uncorrelated boost?

Also, a PSA:  Atomic Wallet Coin is trash.  AWC dumped and is in the toilet.  Called that, didn't I?

Their lack of social support, FAQ typos, and overall Telegram toxicity told me too much.  I want to thank the toxic who called my mother fat and banned me for asking questions to give my viewers (you) more clarity.  It was some keyboard warrior called Jorge - thanks bro, you saved me at least $25 by banning me!

I highly recommend you get out of AW and their whole sham; they are starting to show their true colors.
