Brave Browser: 1M trackers/ads blocked + $165 just from browsing

Around a year ago, I started using Brave as my primary browser. And today I noticed on the homepage that I reached 1 million trackers and ads blocked, which is pretty shocking. Additionally, I was essentially PAID to browse as I normally would — with the recent run up in the price of BAT this amounts to ~$165. Obviously not a significant amount of money, but I think the concept is awesome regardless.

The browser itself works well, and the only issues I have with it are:

  • You can only "cash out" via an Uphold wallet, which is KYC and has high fees.
  • Some issues with receiving BAT payments on time.
  • Can't enable BAT rewards on my iPhone, due to Apple's policy.

To those of you on the fence, I would suggest at least trying Brave. You can enable / disable BAT rewards (to earn BAT there are some pop-up ads that appear) as you please, so there's really no downside to giving it a shot. I think there are decent arguments on both sides about the value of the BAT token, so you can determine for yourself if enabling BAT ads are "worth it" for you.
