Brave Launches 100K BAT “Best of the Brave” Video Contest for Online Creators and Publishers

Brave recently passed the 4 million bar of monthly active users (MAU), and has over 21,000 Verified Publishers. We’re celebrating this MAU milestone by inviting our community of creators and publishers to produce a short video about it, as well as why they’re excited by Brave’s vision and products.

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.

More information and updates can be found at our contest page, as well as detailed rules.

We can’t wait to see what you have in store!
