THEMIS RFC&C Update
A month ago we announced an RFC&C for the THEMIS protocol which is meant to progressively decentralize the Brave/BAT Ads infrastructure, while providing users and advertisers with the ability to verify that the protocol is properly computing user rewards.
Today we are excited to share some of the progress we have made in the past month.
