“Best of the Brave” Video Contest Winners Are Rewarded with 115K BAT
On September 26, we launched a video contest for Brave-verified online publishers and creators. Participants were asked to upload a video to YouTube in order to celebrate our recent milestone of 4 million monthly active users and explain why they’re excited about our vision and products.
We received over 150 submissions, and recently determined the overall winners for 2 categories: Leaderboard and Most Creative.
In the Leaderboard category, 10 winners received a combined total of 100K Basic Attention Tokens (BAT) for the videos that generated the highest number of Brave user installs globally, via a customized referral link. In the Most Creative category, 3 videos were selected by a Brave panel from the community and marketing teams for their outstanding creativity and video execution. Each winner there received 5K BAT. Congratulations to everyone, we were thrilled to see the enthusiasm and different approaches that went into sharing the news about our 4 million monthly active users!

Brave uncovers widespread surveillance of UK citizens by private companies embedded on UK council websites
Brave has uncovered widespread surveillance of UK citizens by private companies embedded on UK council websites. “Surveillance on UK council websites”, a new report from Brave, reveals the extent of private companies’ surveillance of UK citizens when they seek help for addiction, disability, and poverty from their local government authorities.
This note highlights the inadequacies of Google and IAB proposals to reform RTB, and rebuts the argument for inaction.
