After using Brave for almost a year, I can extract some stats from its usage over time:
- 152,906 trackers blocked
- 2,26GB of bandwidth saved
- “2,1 hours saved” (no clue how this is calculated)
But more importantly, I made some bucks!
In Brave browser you can opt-in to the Brave Rewards program, which enables a BAT (Basic Attention Token) Wallet where the funds will be stored.
Through the third-party service uphold.com you can manage those funds and withdraw them.
I can’t say that the ads were very relevant all the time, but certainly more accurate to my interests than other ads showed on the Web.
Nevertheless, in the last year I managed to gather 13,5 $ (11,5 €)!
Not too bad. I didn’t expect much from BAT and Brave Rewards, but it’s still something.
Still better than the shady crypto faucets 😄
