Recently, FinTech startup ZEBDEE announced that “with the integration of ZEBEDEE into Slice, a browser extension that pays you for seeing ads, your time on the Internet is now worth actual value.”

London-based AdTech startup Slice offers a browser extension (available for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Brave) that “enables users to easily monetize the time and attention they invest in internet browsing.” Once installed and activated, Slice browser extension displays ads on the web pages that you visit. By viewing these ads, users earn Slices, which can then be exchanged for “real money.”

ZEBDEE’s blog post mentioned that “advertisers should pay us to see their ads”, “but in order to make it possible to efficiently transfer value from advertisers to potential customers, an advanced form of programmable money is required, as well as a highly-efficient payment system.” ZEBDEE says this is where it comes in, and that its Bitcoin-based Lightning payment rails are “just the tool Slice needs to effectively reward their users without being bothered by delays or drowned in fees.” After collecting some Slices, you can “exchange them for Bitcoin by withdrawing them to the ZEBEDEE app.”

It is worth pointing out that “you’ll only be able to convert Slices to Bitcoin after 30 days.”

According to a joint press release issued on September 16, “because Slice has built this functionality using ZEBEDEE’s extremely efficient payments technology, which sits on top of the Bitcoin Lightning Network, users receive their rewards instantly and with no fees.” The press release noted that in contrast payouts in “legacy systems like PayPal” could t”ake days and carry substantial fees,” and so it is easy to understand to “why the integration of Slice with ZEBEDEE creates a passive income experience fit for the modern age.”

Darina Oumanski, Co-founder and COO at Slice, had this to say:

Today, people surfing the web are right to have high standards for receiving value in exchange for their attention, and to claim that value in the form of real money, delivered to them instantly. ZEBEDEE is a perfect match for Slice regarding the actual last-mile execution. It works no matter where you’re from and what local currency you use. Their platform made implementing this functionality extremely easy, and the fact that it runs on Bitcoin makes it instantly accessible worldwide.

And Andre Neves, Co-Founder and CTO of ZEBEDEE, stated:

We’re happy to work with the Slice team to bring their innovative idea to life. ZEBEDEE is best known as a payments platform for games, but our tech is built to handle so much more than that. Any digital experience that wants to integrate natural, simple and instant payments is a perfect fit for ZEBEDEE, making Slice a great and interesting partner. A few years ago, this would have been hard to build, but not any more!
