Welcome to this week’s BAT Community Update! 

Blog: Brave reaches 8 million MAU and delivers nearly 400 privacy-preserving BAT ad campaigns (14% clickthrough rate vs. industry 2%)

Brave is growing on the user front, with daily active users passing the 2.8 million mark recently, and monthly active users now at 8 million. There are also over 290,000 Brave Verified Publishers. 200,000 of those are YouTube creators, 33,000 are website publishers or creators, 15,000 are Twitch streamers, and since we announced our support for Twitter tipping on August 1st, 28,000 Twitter accounts have joined to receive Basic Attention Tokens (BAT).  

Since Brave launched opt-in Brave Ads just over six months ago, we have seen a huge surge in partnerships. In the wake of privacy scandals, as well as GDPR and CCPA requirements becoming clear, leading agencies and brands want to transition to relevant, brand-safe, and privacy-friendly advertising. Brave Ads preserve users’ privacy, and reward them with 70% of the ad revenue.
