Sunsetting the referral program and planning for the future
Effective today, November 9th, 2020, we will begin to wind-down the current referral program. Creators using the Brave referral program have 14 days to wrap up their Brave promotional activity. Creators not using the referral program will experience no change.
What does this mean for first opens, confirmations, and payouts?
- After November 23rd, referrals (first opens) driven by referrers will no longer be eligible for payout.
- Brave will pay out on confirmations that occur before December 24th. A confirmation is a 30 day active user of Brave.
- Final payments for December confirmations will be made in early January 2021.
$1 Million Planned in 2018, and over $13 Million Distributed by 2020
The current referral program has exceeded its goal by 13x. Now we are planning a new referral program adapted to our scale and to our community. We hope to share details in early 2021. In the interim, and to facilitate the transition, a select number of referrers will assist Brave.
What started with a goal of distributing $1 million in BAT has grown to deliver more than thirteen times our expectations. To date, more than $13 million in BAT has been distributed via the referral program. Thank you for supporting Brave on this journey. We are immensely grateful.
To all our referrers, please start winding down your Brave promotions as referrals after November 24th will not be paid out.
For further information please see this community thread.
Thanks for your support.
