Announcement: BAT & Access79 partner to bring custom limited-edition demi-fine BAT ring & BAT dog tag necklace to BAT fans. Available now for preorder!

Over the last four months, Brave Ads users may have seen ads for Access79, a try-before-you-buy luxury jewelry service that joined the Brave Ads platform in September.

While advertising with Brave, Access79 has been working with our team behind the scenes to create two special commemorative wearables for fans of Basic Attention Token—dreamt up with the spirit of BAT fans in mind: our galvanizers, explorers, and believers. The BAT community itself played an essential role in the product development process: members were asked to share feedback on Twitter via a sequence of polls during the various stages of production. Today, we are pleased to announce that the demi-fine Limited Edition BAT Signet Ring and the Limited Edition BAT Dog Tag necklace are now available for preorder on Access79’s website!

The BAT Signet Ring and BAT Dog Tag necklace each boast a polished, minimalistic design featuring an embossed BAT logo outlined by hand in black rhodium. Each piece is crafted with recycled sterling silver and available in either white or yellow gold finishes. They are unisex and super comfortable.

Visit Access79’s website and reserve your BAT Signet Ring and BAT Dog Tag necklace today: https://access79.com/brave-collaboration

We hope you enjoy wearing these beautiful pieces as much as we enjoyed creating them for you! 

Decrypt: “Watch out Google: Brave surpasses 350,000 publisher milestone”

Brave, the crypto-friendly browser courageously battling against both advertisements and colossal competition from Google, has hit a milestone of 350,000 registered Brave rewards publishers.

Brave’s rewards publishers are websites that have registered to receive Brave rewards. These are given out when a user decides to send a tip to their desired website, using the Basic Attention Token (BAT). 

This latest milestone indicates an impressive 820% jump in less than a year, with Brave relaying a comparatively lesser 38,000 publishers back in January 2019.
