Wikipedia is now a Brave Verified Publisher, Ready to Receive BAT Donations from Brave Users

Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia, has joined the Brave platform as a Verified Publisher. Created in 2001, Wikipedia is edited and verified by volunteers around the world. Wikipedia is offered in 300 languages containing a total of more than 50 million articles, and viewed more than 15 billion times every month. Wikipedia is hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation, a charitable, not-for-profit organization that relies on donations. 

By becoming a Brave Verified Publisher, Wikipedia joins over 240,000 publishers and creators on the Brave platform able to receive Basic Attention Token (BAT) donations from Brave’s over 7 million monthly active users. 

Brave users can seamlessly contribute BAT to Wikipedia with the integrated Brave Rewards system in the Brave browser by simply clicking on the BAT icon in the Brave URL bar. Users can choose to make one-time or recurring monthly donations. Users can purchase BAT for their integrated wallets, or earn BAT monthly from viewing opt-in, privacy-preserving Brave Ads. Users in regions that don’t show Brave Ads yet can donate BAT from occasional grants they receive from Brave. 

“We’re thrilled to welcome Wikipedia as a Brave Verified Publisher and to connect it directly to Brave users for automatic and anonymous donations,” said Brendan Eich, CEO and co-founder of Brave. “Brave and Wikipedia are aligned in their goals of supporting great content on the Web without invasive trackers and ads, and creating an online ecosystem that empowers creators to share their work.”
