Brave is a new ad-free Browser aiming to transform the online ad ecosystem with micropayments and a new revenue-sharing solution to give users and publishers a better deal. Today, Brave announced it was rolling out “Brave Payments,” a Beta solution to encourage users to use a reward system that enables them to directly support their favourite sites.
Brave mission is to save the web by increasing browsing speed and safety for users while growing ad revenue share for content creators. With the ad-tech ecosystem out of control, users have revolted and blocking ads has become the new weapon of choice for improving their browsing speed, safety and privacy. Unfortunately, blocking alone results in a race to the bottom where nobody wins. Without the ability for content creators to earn money for their efforts, users could be left with fewer sites to browse, relegated to hand-picked content from controlled sources.
Online advertisements have given a negative impact the web experience Simple tools like AdBlock and such have helped for a long time but are no longer effective. As for mobile, the negative experience has increased even further, so Brave thinks that’s a where the new payment app will come in handy.
