The privacy-focused Brave Browser is hosting a contest where they are asking content creators and publishers to produce a short video explaining why they are using the browser and why they are excited about its features. Brave is offering a huge cryptocurrency reward to the winner in the form of 100,000 Basic Attention Tokens (BAT), to be distributed between the top ten content creators.
Publishers are being asked to create a 2- to 5-minute video announcing that “Brave Crosses the 4 Million Monthly Active User (MAU) mark,” and post it through their YouTube accounts.
Winners will receive, 50K BAT for first place, 25K BAT for second place, 10K BAT for third place, 5K BAT for fourth place, 3K BAT for fifth place and 2K BAT each for sixth through tenth place.
The contest is said to commemorate the passing of the 4 million monthly active users milestone.
According to a post from Brave:
Anyone who is a Brave Verified Publisher can participate. Videos should be uploaded to YouTube by Friday, October 12th, 2018, and should be 2 to 5 minutes in length. Other than that, get creative, as we welcome any style and any format!Winners will be rewarded in Basic Attention Tokens (BAT). 100,000 BATs are up for grabs. They will be divided amongst the top ten winners of the leaderboard (based on the highest number of Brave user installs globally, generated by that video via a customized referral link), as well as the top three most creative videos. We’ll also promote winners in social media and in our community.
You can enter the contest on Brave’s website.
According to a recent online statement from chief executive Brendan Eich, Brave users will be able to earn sizeable rewards just for viewing ads.
Users and publishers will both be paid out in the Basic Attention Token (BAT), which has a native wallet build into the browser. Since the size of the payouts are actually tied to the price of BAT, Eich predicted that net user revenue could reach as high as $70 next year and a projected $320 in 2020 if BAT prices increase.
Earlier this month, CryptoGlobe reported that Brave dumped Google in France and Germany over concerns that the search engine was sharing user data with third-party companies for the purpose of personalizing advertisements. Brave has also filed a formal complaint against Google in Europe, alleging that Google's advertising practices violate the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
