Who doesn’t like making money while doing something that you were going to do anyway?
While I was searching online everyday like I normally do about fun new things in Crypto World, I came across some info regarding a new browser that you can actually make money by just browsing and searching for things that you normally would. It’s called Brave and it’s totally cool!
It’s a fast, secure and private browser that basically strips out the ads from websites and replaces them with its own ads. You can then make money from watching these ads. You also get rewards from advertisers that use the Brave platform in the way of rewards just for searching sites that they have ads on. Brave says that no personal data or browsing history ever leaves your browser.
I downloaded the browser on my Mac mini and really didn’t think about it too much after that. I use Chrome everyday for work so I normally just fire it up first thing. But one day I was just looking at that lion icon in my system tray and I said, Hey, let’s just give this a try and see what happens.
Ok, this is what happened. The browser came up with a nice decluttered desktop that kind of reminds me of the Bing (Microsoft) browser with all the pretty pictures. It also has a clock which is cool. The desktop also tells you how many trackers and ads it blocked and how much bandwidth you saved. You can import your favorite sites from Chrome and other browsers that you use so you can have all your favorites with you when you need them. Ok..now on to the good stuff.
The first site that I went to was Coindesk to see what was happening in the crypto world. Then, I went to Coinbase to check my account. Then I get a notification that I have REWARDS! What!..wait.. so fast? Yep, I went into my rewards account and I now have 0.035 BAT (1 cent). Lol..Ok, I’m not rich but it’s pretty cool that I immediately made some money after just 10 minutes of searching. After using the site 2 times, I’m up to 0.6 cents in my BAT account which I can add to with my own funds at any time. I also thought that it was nice that you could keep track of your earnings right on the home page as soon as you enter the browser. You can see what sites you visited and the attention point percentage for each site. Awesome..getting paid while I search and learn… Works for me.
Since there is so much to learn in the crypto space, it’s good to know that you can actually make a little bit of money along the way. You can also support/tip contributors monthly using BAT tokens directly on the browser.
