Basic Attention Token (BAT) is an ERC-20 Token that can be used as a payment method between advertisers, users and publishers on the Brave browser. Brave is an open source browser that blocks ads, cookies and trackers. Brave relies on a new business model regarding digital advertising: when users choose to watch ads, they are rewarded in BAT (on top of publishers and Brave).

Private tabs on Brave use Tor to protect anonymity.

BAT has been founded by Brendan Eich, who is also the creator of the JavaScript coding language and one the co-founders of Mozilla and Firefox.

Brave raised 7 millions in August 2016. The year after, the team launched an ICO and raised 35 million dollars in just a few seconds.
