BAT – Making Crypto and DeFi accessible and useable for everyone

Crypto and DeFi are hard to use and the $330 billion digital advertising industry is failing users, publishers and advertisers. With Basic Attention Token and Brave we want to take Crypto to the next 1B users and solve the endemic inefficiencies and privacy violations hobbling the digital ad industry.

BAT has seen stunning results since being integrated into the Brave browser’s first-of-its-kind global private ad platform: tens of millions of users worldwide; millions of verified creators accepting BAT; thousands of ad campaigns with leading brands; and growing utility with the most innovative names in blockchain. These results make BAT one of the most successful alt-coin projects to date. BAT is now bridged across the Ethereum and Solana blockchains, and offers utility to both ecosystems.
