Our recent token sale enabled us to create a user growth pool of 300 million BATs, which will be used in the near future to stake users with tokens and incentivize them to join the BAT platform.
The sale also provided our development team with resources to continue building the BAT platform. We started this work last fall, with the Brave Payments beta which uses Bitcoin for automated micro-donations to publishers. We’re pleased with the success of Brave Payments, which currently has 162 verified publishers.
We will recruit around twenty people over several months, in small groups that match the ongoing priorities of our roadmap. We are looking for talent in machine learning, Ethereum, devops, project management, marketing, design, as well as more browser developers.
As was outlined recently in the BAT roadmap, we’re in the Mercury phase of our platform development. We are using sale funds to hire several people to complete this phase, including BAT wallet integration into Brave and converting Brave Payments from Bitcoin to BAT. It also includes developing the on-device machine learning models that privately match catalogued ads as well as developing the framework of user-private ad experience.
We’ve posted the following openings on our site. We look forward to receiving your resumes or portfolios, depending on the job description.
