What is the Basic Attention Token?

Built on Ethereum blockchain, the Basic Attention Token (BAT) uses a specialised web browser known as ‘Brave’ — a new digital advertising and services platform. The BAT token is used as currency on the Brave platform.

The Basic Attention Token was launched in 2017 and was developed to efficiently and effectively distribute advertising money between advertisers, publishers, and the consumers of online advertising and marketing content. It is a blockchain-based system for tracking consumers' time on websites using the Brave browser. The objective of this is to target consumers with more well-tailored ads, without violating data privacy rights. Anyone using the Brave browser can turn on the 'Brave Ads' feature & get paid in BAT for their time spent viewing digital advertisements.

What are BAT tokens?

BAT is a utility token, intended for use on the BAT platform. The Basic Attention Token can be used as a unit of account between advertisers, publishers, and digital consumers.
