Remunerate your Favorite Content Creators
According to a post on Reddit, a preview version of Brave Browser enabling user tipping has hit the web. In the new developer preview, users can tip individual posters and content creators on Reddit, one of the top 20 internet website in the world for traffic volume generated.
The company hasn’t shared any official statement yet, but several Reddit users have noticed the addition of the “tip” button in their feeds. The features in development mode usually follow a three-week development cycle between the beta and the main release, meaning the new tipping function will likely be extended to all users shortly.
Until then, users can already verify their Reddit accounts and begin receiving tips for their posts subscribing on https://creators.brave.com.
Reddit is one of the largest cryptocurrency information and community gateways in the world. The Bitcoin subreddit has more than 1.1 million members, and the CryptoCurrency subreddit has nearly 900,000 members. The introduction of a cryptocurrency tip button on a site with 1.6 billion monthly visits to a crypto-friendly audience could end up being the largest mainstream test to date for BAT as a means of payment.
Alongside Reddit, the new version allows users to tip on Vimeo as well. Tipping on Reddit and Vimeo represent an important milestone for Brave Browser who has already integrated tipping services on Twitter, Youtube, and Twitch in June 2019.
The reward system is based on Brave’s token, BAT, which boasts 100,000 verified publishers who accept the token for payments or donations. Brave also earned the status of default browser in Exodus, the newest HTC smartphone.
