Basic Attention Token (BAT) is a native token of a web browser known as Brave and it is built on top of Ethereum blockchain. BAT is used as currency on the Brave platform that serves several different advertising services such as blocks unwanted ads and trackers.

The developers of BAT see the current trends as disadvantaging users, advertisers and content publishers such as users overwhelmed with ads and trackers and they are subjected to malware that has been increasingly aggressive and powerful.

Besides, advertisers lack sufficient targeting methods and information to deliver their content sufficiently because platforms monopolize these functions.

In anticipation of concerns regarding fraud and privacy issues, the developers of Brave and BAT have built several security measures into the browser and digital token system.

The creator of BAT believes in tracking how users interact with digital ads that information in distributed ledger, they will be able to improve the digital advertising experience for users.

Meanwhile, users receive BAT from their ad views and also use BAT for tips or micropayments to online media. Content publishers are also rewarded by BAT as an alternative revenue source to advertising.

Brave browser blocks default ads and shows Brave Ads instead. Brave browsers users can choose to watch or ignore the ads, a portion of ads fee will be given to those who view ads.

Users can tip content publishers by BAT in Brave and can make small charges every month.
