Hello, 'BAT Community". I’ve been using the Brave Browser for some weeks now and really like the ideas. The browser also works fine for me and is better than what I had before, so it’s already a win in that respect.
With regard to the viewing ads and earning BAT, I have 2 suggestions:
I don’t want to create a personal account with Uphold and give personal information, partially because I may not even have a fixed residence or phone # and also having a currency tied to personal information tends to fly against much of the spirit of Bitcoin etc.
Though the ads have actually been enjoyable in many cases and appropriately selected, and I also realize this is not yet a “mature” product and think the basic ideas have potential and can grow, it would be good to see a more diverse and broader variety of advertisements. I have stopped clicking on many advertisements because I almost feel guilty knowing it will probably what I’ve already seen and an advertiser would probably not want to pay for multiple views by the user of the same content. I completely understand this is a new project and also believe the basic ideas are great, again, the browser works well for me too, and I’m simply suggesting that having a more diverse set of advertisements would help reduce costs for specific advertisers and add a bit more novelty and surprise for users.
I wish you guys well, though at least for the first case, I will likely still use the browser but not view the ads because I don’t want to have to create a personal account with Uphold to access the BAT. Though I have enjoyed donating BAT to some of my favorite sites and that might be a reason to continue viewing the ads (and again, I think the advertisements you’ve selected are actually quite good and informative, in general)
Best wishes, I wish you the best and just wanted to give some feedback on my experiences with this project.
