Brave Ads - Get paid for your attention [+ Survey]

Rewards

No YUP/tokens awarded

Let’s talk about something controversial - Ads.

Whether we like them or not, one thing is for sure, they enabled us to have free internet and access to many free products and services. However, Brave believes that the advertising model is broken and in dire need of change.

So let’s talk about the way Brave is reinventing Ads.

Brave Ads

Old Advertising model works on you paying with your attention and your precious private data that are sent to advertisers.This is not the case with Brave Ads.

 

Brave Ads for users

  • Respect your privacy by storing your private data in your Browser and you choose if you want to receive targeted (relevant) ads. In any case, your data is never shared with anyone and stays on your device.

  • The ads are presented separately from your web content so you’re not disturbed by billion Ad banners that are just trying to distract you from the content you’re enjoying.

  • You are in control of how many Ads you want to see and even when you want to see them.

  • You get rewarded with 70% of the Ad revenue that is received from the Advertiser.

 

Brave Ads do not replace the current web Ads that are embedded in the content. These Ads are still blocked by Brave because they are intrusive to your web-browsing experience and your privacy.

 

Your task

  • Fill in a short survey about Ads

  • Answer the questions in the comments below

    • What do you think of Ads in general? What do you like and don’t like about them?

    • What do you think of the Brave ads model? What would you improve?

 

Rewards

  • 100 Yups for filling the survey

  • Rewards from upvotes for your comments

 

And if you haven’t yet, download Brave or learn more about it in our Introductory task.

 

Brave just launched their ad feature! You can check out their press release here.

 

Thank you for participating and good luck.

Of course it is very good, because we will not be disturbed by advertisements when we browse. Currently there are very few browsers that pay by just looking at advertisements. Brave also uses the blocked feature for ads from websites, so it will be more comfortable and privacy for us when opening a website.

1. What do you think of advertising? What do you like, what do you not like? Advertising is a must, and I don't care if I have ads when I browse the Web. My favorite ads are about everyday life, eating, drinking, living, sex. Do not like about the yellow, involved in violence, involving drugs, marijuana aspects of advertising. 2. What do you think of the Brave ad model? What will you improve? The brave advertising model is OK, but it, not all countries can do it, not in China. I know that China now has a network blockade, but Cryptotab browser Android version can dig Bitcoin, although login needs to use VPN, other times do not need VPN! Why brave browsers can't

What do you think of Ads in general? What do you like and don’t like about them? I don't mind ads, websites need to make money but I don't like too many, far too often do websites sell 90% of their site to adverts What do you think of the Brave ads model? What would you improve? Braves model is brilliant, I much prefer having ads kept separate and I definitely like getting paid

  • What do you think of Ads in general? What do you like and don’t like about them?

I don't mind ads as long as they're not intrucive or overly present. Small banner ads are fine by me.

  • What do you think of the Brave ads model? What would you improve?

"The ads are presented separately from your web content so you’re not disturbed by billion Ad banners that are just trying to distract you from the content you’re enjoying." 

I actually think this would bother me more since I'd have to close a seperate pop up. I prefer small ads that blend in with the website.

I don’t dislike the idea of ads but they can definitely be annoying. I think it’s nice to see new products but also sometimes the constant bombardment can be frustrating. I think brave is a great platform especially as dealing with ads would be worthwhile. I wouldn’t do them in terms of notifications however.

This kind of platform is unique as you have integrated of getting by viewing ads with your browser. It is really great that we, the users, have now the power to control the ads that they can see and earn from them easily. This would be a win-win situation to the publishers, marketers and to the viewers. I would definitely try this browser.

The ads are not a problem if they are not too many and they do not limit the functionality of the webpage. Where this is very important is on mobile, most mobile browsers are horrible in stopping the annoying popup ads. Recently I opened one ad-heavy page on mobile in Opera and in Brave, Opera had 6 ads showing while Brave only showed one, great work!! The ad model used by Brave is great, what I would like to see is some way to visit more pages where I could tip with BAT. I know that Guardian is one but I had to search for a complete list of verified partners in order to find out. Maybe introduce a "suggested alternatives" option that will hint what page has the content the user is interested in but is a verified creator.

In our world of technology we really needs privacy on all matter not only ads while surfing, this new idea from BRAVE is kind of awesome and really gives us what we are searching for so long where no browser ever goes without ads. 

BRAVE also have ads which like I mentioned earlier no browser would skip it in reality. It's their main income. It just make sense that it was design different and allowed it to be viewed in separate windows is definitely fantastic for us generally.

Firstly, to be honest no one like ads, more disgusting when it appears in the middle of games or browsing or watching video. But in reality that's how the website survive, without it we won't have good games, video or content to browse. 

Brave is going or try to create a new world of ads by not popping up and to have it in separate windows which is much applauded by many. The problems now lies in we are getting paid to watch ads and at the same time tips our favorite. Many of us would love to get paid to watch ads like me but to tips our hard earn BATS are not going to be popular among us.

Best brower so far, instead of earning BAT and sharing it with others by viewing ads, we can now pick and ignore those that irrelevant and wasted our time, someof them kept popping up whenever we clicked on the mouse. With Brave i've forgotten my nightmares with other browser. Perfectly suitable for office use if not streaming any ads. Bravo!

Nice idea. Particularly pop-ups if they are not intrusive. I find a lot of ads quite garish and the way they can affect the speed of pages loading really annoying. Something more subtle and targeting particular interests would be preferable.

In my own experience and opinion,ads makes me annoyed always.It also makes my device crashes out.Most of all some ads delivers viruses which an damage some devices and also mine.This ads also contains adult content which i hate the.By using Brave browser it makes me feel free from disgusting ads that keeps on popping on my window.When it comes to improvement,I have nothing to say.So far I am satisfied for what the Brave browser has given me.The help of the browser to get rid of nasty ads is really enough for me that I am very satisfied using Brave browser always.

The idea with the ads is great. Also the webpage of brave gives a good idea of what it is about. What I would enjoy too is if instead of giving a donation to the webpage to donate to a charity which is maybe also blockchain approved and verified. Maybe charity by brave itself? Something like reducing carbon emission or plant trees with BAT? Would get a lot of attention for sure, do something good with the money youvget for your own data.

Ads in general can be annoying sometimes, OK, a lot of the time. But sometimes they're actually useful, and lead me to content or products I wouldn't have found otherwise. That's me speaking from a consumer's perspective. From someone who has run ads occasionally...they're useful. They help you make money, sometimes. And they're the way a good bit of the world works--bloggers make money off of ads on their blog, television channels run commercials so they can pay for programming, free newspapers run ads so they can afford to publish their newspapers. So while they're annoying to me as a consumer, I know they provide me access to content, like television shows and newspapers, that I wouldn't have access to otherwise. One more thing about ads...I sometimes use apps on my smartphone that offer the chance to win money, but require you to watch video ads every so often. And it gets really annoying when I have to watch the same ad for the same app over and over again. So...perhaps you would want to offer targeted ads for apps like that. If that's possible. As for the Brave ads model, I like it. But I was somewhat disappointed when I heard about it before, but found when I tried to access it via my Brave browser that it was not possible to use in my area. For some reason. Hopefully that has changed, or will change.

But when it becomes too pressing it becomes quite irritating and also very uncomfortable to use, so the brave idea will go a long way to amek things easier and better most especially for thise that dont like ads at all.  i will say that with this idea many changes is going to take place in the advertisement industries and it will be changes for the good.

Really, my biggest aversion to advertising is speed and performance. Ads do tend to use valuable resources on your computer. Since I've switched to brave, not only have I had significantly better performance and less network usage, but I've also been making a tiny bit of money from non-invasive sidebar banners. Brave is your all-in-one go-to closer for the 9th inning. This browser is fantastic, and I'm personally promoting it to all of my friends.

Brave browser is flipping the ad-revenue-dependent internet right on it's head. As it stands, the typical internet user is constantly being harvested for data. We unknowingly provide a wealth of information which is in turn monetized in order to generate ad dollars. This system has been allowed to run rampant, and I think a growing segment of the public is becoming jaded in regards to advertising. But Brave seeks to change that, by providing privacy counter-measures, and giving us an environment where we are rewarded for our attention. By blocking ads, and giving us the ability to tip quality content providers, Brave browser has a real shot at dismantling the clickbait-ridden wasteland that we have put up with for far too long. A Brave new online world is being crafted here, and it feels refreshing. BE-BRAVE.

I've been used Brave Browser in My Phone, It's so easy to use and then give feed back for User and Publisher like example Band or Youtube Creator specially about Tip for Them. Honestly for Newbie Users, They have said confuse to use the browser including Me specially for FAQ to get Brave rewards/BAT. For example, I've been used for two month in My Phone. But until now BAT rewards can not be withdraw or auto landed to uphold. Is the brave browser used on mobile phones only to give TIPs to publishers. Or it can be used to continue to get BAT personally for users. Please, in the future, my advice is that the Brave Browser used in mobile phones can generate rewards (BAT) for its users. I am optimistic that if that happens, more people will use / download Brave Browser in Playstore or Appstore. thank you

Ads are annoying and slows down the speed of browsing on a webpage, some ads are useful, informing you about limited promos and offers. The downside is I noticed that once you interact with any ads, you'll just keep seeing them over and over again, it is like they're tracking you and it is not good. By using brave your privacy is protected, I hope the ads feature in brave where you can earn rewards will be available soon in my country because I can't review it further.

First time I've been using brave and I'm a bit curious about its features.I watched some videos about brave and amazed by how you can earn by just viewing ads and the same time it protects your privacy. Faster web page loading too and it woks on slow connections and I really love it but the downside is I can't still use the feature that you can earn by watching ads, I think it is not still available in my country. I live in the Philippines by the way.

Completed the survey. I have been using the ads for reward system for a few days. Look like it works fine so far but there's no clear explanation on how everything works. Ads come in at irregular interval. But I guess it's still early stage of development. Browser experience is mostly comparable to Chrome. Being able to sync account to multiple device greatly helped my conversion to Brave.

I didn't try Brave ads model yet, because is not available in my country(Italy) yet.

2 weeks ago

The web now more than ever needs security and privacy. Advertising on the web is very intrusive (scary) and definitely need a tool to block it. Browser extensions in the form of blockers are not always effective (some blockers only show them profitable ads). So, Brave’s idea is interesting for me, if only her team would implement it qualitatively.

2 weeks ago

Bob Bobage new user

I think that it's a good idea, and has come a long way in a short time. Things like this have been a long time coming. The web wasn't originally built with privacy and security in mind, and this is a serious flaw. Brave is courageously attacking that problem and from what I've seen there's some real potential there. I like the control over when to absorb advertising. I don't like that it's still somewhat 'clunky' ad delivery relative to the kinds of ads that Brave generally blocks. I think the Brave ads model is outstanding for users, but there's perhaps a disincentive there for publishers because 70% of the revenue goes to users. This is in my opinion one of the most critical flaws with Brave's model. Also, being open source and Gab forking Brave to use BTC raises the issue of whether or not you should(fork) to include some other currencies to avoid a new wave of the "browser wars".

2 weeks ago

I've been using Brave for months now. I love the security, privacy features, token system and speed. Regarding ads in general, I feel that online ads are very effective, if executed strategically and without impeding upon the user’s experience. I’m not a fan of ads that interfere with the flow of the content I’m consuming. For example, floating ads, autoplay videos with sound, forced interstitials or auto-expanding banner ads with flash. Not only are they extremely invasive, but they also slow down my computer and some cases freeze things up on the website entirely. I realize that publishers need to run ads in order to generate revenue, but 5 to 6 ads above the fold reflects poorly on both the advertiser and publisher, in my opinion. In some cases, I really enjoy ads targeted towards me and my interests. For example, there are many products and services that I would have never known about if they hadn’t shown up in my newsfeed. That said, I feel that Brave does a great job at incorporating ads effectively. Their ad standards make it so that ads don’t impede on the user experience and their algorithm delivers relevant content to me on a daily basis.

I like so much your ideas that you develop with brav ebrowser and brave ads. When i thought about ADS on browser all people was scaried because your data could be tracked and could be used for commercial motivation. Butif you change the people idea and they have a directly payment for their service, the market and the peolpe could have an advantange. It is a perfect system to create an ecosystem WIN-WIN where all obtan what whant. 

So good work guys. Good luck ;)

I'm afraid ads are a necessary evil in the world of web browsing. At some point, you'll need something fueling the whole ecosystem. This is what is more exciting about the Brave project, taking something that must exist and make it better, allowing real advertisers to connect with a real audience. Moving ads to a separate tab seems a smart move to me, as well as getting paid to watch the content. As a advertiser - a real one - i would feel safe. From a user point of view, i think it would be very interesting to develop a targeted ad system: would'nt be nice for an audience member to choose the subject of an ads?

2 weeks ago

Brave set out to not only fight advertising fraud but to allow real advertisers to get to their intended client base by rewarding those clients with BAT for viewing said ads. Brave has infact found a way to revamp online advertising in a way that has never been done before and for that my hat is off to Brave browser and BAT with 110% of my groups support behind your platform.

Invasive ads are the biggest perceived problem, especially in mobile devices making some web pages impossible to read and with huge loading times. Personalized advertising is not a problem for me until the data is used with a certain logic inside the company and is not sold to everyone who is not authorized. I like the Brave idea because you get paid for looking advertisement in a separate window and not everywhere with problems on devices with slow connection speed or limited resources.

1. I think ads are very intrusive and can be unbearable. sometimes it becomes scary the aggressive form of retarget used by some sites, we consult something on the internet and then we are bombarded with ads on this subject coming from all sides which in my opinion is unacceptable unless somehow we give our consent to know more about this subject. 2. I like the Brave ads model. But I am not yet sufficiently familiar with the system to have a better opinion. However it was interesting to have the option to see related ads to a particular theme or not.

Privacy is a topic that everyone cares about when visiting their website.There are many methods to ensure this confidentiality.I personally don't like advertising during this trip. As someone who has been actively using the Internet for almost 20 years, I'd like to say that I hate advertising. Popups are trouble. Especially when I need urgent information, the presence of these ads makes me very uncomfortable. Yeah, I do not recommend to save our special data to our browser. (Although there is no sharing with anyone) But it's nice to be able to make a choice about the ads. It is also nice to choose how many pieces you can watch. It is also nice to be rewarded in return. But I prefer the quality of these ads to be of good quality.You only need to develop your project on data usage.

3 weeks ago

In general, I think ads have benefits & disadvantages. Pop up ads often get in the way when researching important topics. I don't like that they take away from my valuable time. There are occasions when I like ads. If I'm shopping for things & need a broader range from which to choose, ads are helpful as long as they're related to my search. I have tried the Brave ads model & I must say I really like it. when I'm in a hurry, I like that there are no pop-up ads to get in the way. One thing I hope improves though is the range of searching There are times when I don't find what I'm searching for thru brave & must go to another search engine. I believe in time, brave will have a broader scope.

I never worried about my privacy until its lead to any abuse. Im 5'7, living hungary, zip code 2120 sometimes use hand lotion etc.. Sharing anything to a big company, who keep my data safe is not a problem for me. But when one of them offering pay for it and another just steal it, thats what i dont like. And thats why i try to support brave but worry about them. To be fair, i can tell, i claimed my tokens in my mobile and donated to my YT channel. I did that for just testing their awards working, but i think about many persons with some IT knowledge can use that for rob Brave. And feel disapointed because Brave paying his users from his own pocket while Google, Facebook etc give a shit and they got more and more money. Back to the question... I love to share my opinion, critic, favorte products, musics etc. When i got ads targeted like them, i will hesitate. But when i got pay for it, i will do it ASAP. Totaly agree with something what "disturbing" me for money. Please work to bring Brave ADS at Eastern Europe.

What do you think of Ads in general? In general I have mixed feelings with ads. Mainly because they can get annoying once you've seen the same ads too many times, and then on the other hand there are those ads that are unique and fun to watch. What do you like and don’t like about them? I enjoy the creativity, uniqueness and humour and don't like the repetitiveness that occurs. What do you think of the Brave ads model? I think it's a fantastic idea and is something i'm very favourable of as it's giving users back control over how we view ads and also being able to earn in the process is something I highly approve of. What would you improve? So far I have nothing to really add and would prefer to wait until the feature is released.

Completed the survey. I love the idea of getting paid to read advertisements. I'm using the Brave browser on all my computers for a while now and love it. Before i used an adblocker on chrome which also represented where you where linked to when entering a page. This is realy an eyeopener. Your data is going everywhere and your clicks are being sold on the spot. Sometimes i like the ads but most of the time they are just annoying. I understand there is a business model behind it and fuels the internet economy but i want to choose when and why. That is what i like about the Brave model. I would like to see sites also sharing revenues with their loyal users. Some kind of 'kick back' model.

I have completed the survey. I really like the Brave browser idea, it keeps you safe and also you can make some BAT coins with that. Basic Attention Tokens is one of the strong altcoins in the cryptocurrency market and it would bring trust your project in big time.. I am waiting for making money with ads but unfortunately the ads are not yet available in my region.. I believe that everyone would use this browser for sure.

- I'm fine with ads as long as not too much. I hate the ads that contain viruses and the ads that full my computer screen. - I think the brave concept is good, you can earn BAT when you viewing ads from Brave browser. the thing that you can improve is the ads must be clean from viruses and don't collect my personal information anonymously.

Brave is a amazing browser. I able to realize how fast is it. When I don't see to many ads I understand that it's safer. And on my phone, the battery last more when I use Brave.

I always try to be as knowledgeable and as honest as possible.

Ads are very important for the business world. It helps the businesses products and services be known and a lot of times, they may also be beneficial to us since we sometimes discover things we need or want through ads. But I admit that they can also be downright annoying. What I don't like about them is that most ads are really intrusive. They pop out anytime from out of nowhere disrupting whatever we're doing without any permission whatsoever. As we've been made known they also invade our privacy, make our webpages go slower and even shortens battery life for our devices. I like that sometimes they become personalized and we may see some ads we can get interested in, but then again not at the cost of our own privacy. Brave ads model is excellent. In fact, I am in love with it. Ever since I used brave there's been no hassle surfing the web. Although there has been no ad offers on my browser yet. I love it so much, I've bought a lot of Basic Attention Tokens (BAT) already. I'm not sure what else to improve, maybe for now give us more ads offers especially on your mobile version to help us earn more. Also, if it's possible to get personalized ads without giving up privacy, that would be awesome. Overall, I'm confident Brave will grow to become the go-to browser for most people.

Crypto enthusiast!!! My opinion matters too!!!!

Ads are a necessary evil thing!!! Personally i do not like them no matter tha format they have(text, banners, etc) but i am aware that several project only can fund themselves thru ads showing, so, there is not an easy way to get rid of them...ads a alive since earlier days of the Internet. I really don't like them, but recently, some advertising agencies have made themselves a way to get ads showing a little unobtrusive...while other do exactly the opposite thing...Ads are here to stay forever...thats for sure!!! The only thing i like about them is that sometimes, you can get a tiny piece of valuable information from some ads: maybe a new service is launching or a new way to get you into some kind of bussiness and you find out through these ads...but there are really few ads systems who have ads showing info with some kind of value, for me 90% of ads showed are garbage. The other face of the coin is USERS...If the user accepts to see those ads(even garbage ads) then there is no problem at all...everyone wins!!! The advertiser and the user are both rewarded with consent of two parts. But if the user doesn't want to see any kind of ads i don't see the point in force him to see them, sometimes even remarking the ads over the main content published. Brave Ads are a simple solution for the problem mentioned before: the ability to blocks undesired ads and see only what we want to see in the moment we want to see it is really something great!!! Be rewarded with 70% of the Ad revenue that is received from the Advertiser is a very good thing to....is an innovative way to surf the Internet been obstructed only for that what we want to...in exchange for a reward. Brave Ads is the future here!! Keep it up and good luck!!!

What do you think of Ads in general? What do you like and don’t like about them? - I usually do not like them. They bother me and distract me when I read or reach the content. I think it may be put into the content by links in a seamless way and this will be a win-win situation for the users and advertisers. What do you think of the Brave ads model? What would you improve? It has many rivals and I use them. It's not novel. It may follow another way than its rivals do. As I mentioned above, if it puts ads into the content via links, it does not bother the users and it can differentiate itself from its rivals.

What do you think of Ads in general? What do you like and don’t like about them? Ads are very important for every industry, without proper advertisement it is really hard to gain customer/audience. I like seeing proper advertisement based on my search criteria, most of the times proper ads lead me to somewhat really good offers/product/services. But I personally don't like current ad model of google/facebook, sometimes it shows ads for a thing you liked or showed interest years ago. Beside there is no concern of user privacy when it comes to storing data or browser history. The consent is multiple pages in tiny print, and they expect us to not read it completely. What do you think of the Brave ads model? What would you improve? I liked the Brave model even before the browser was launched, and I have been using it from the very first day. The only thing I don't like about Brave is the connection to Uphold, from publisher and user perspective.

Ads in general are annoying when it keeps popping up almost every second. I love the idea of being paid by brave to view or allow adds. But it should be controlled or regulated in a way that the timing is right and the ad is of relevance based on the users internet activities.

Don't listen to me because of who I am, I'm nobody like everone else.

I do think this is a really good idea. I have never been one of those people who are really bothered by ads. I don't mind advertising within a page at all; most of the time I am aware that I have specifically chosen to view a site with advertising rather than pay for one without it so it seems very selfish and churlish to complain about it to me. I've never used an adblocker before Brave, and generally thought of people who use them as thieves stealing something of tiny value to themselves at great expense to someone else, which kind of seems like the most callous form of theft to me. Although I am a little annoyed by ads which require you to click to get them out of the way of the content, this actually seems to happen more with all the annoying government enforced notifications about cookies and EU directive compliance and stuff more than with advertising these days. I even like advertising sometimes, as occasionally it is actually for something interesting / useful. Back in the day when I used to buy physical magazines they would often have pages of just ads from small obscure companies towards the back, which I would always look through and would sometimes enjoy as much as the articles. But I am very bothered by the privacy aspect of advertisements tracking you which I find distasteful and creepy so the keeping of data in the browser would be a big selling point for me. Because I don't mind ads in general this combined with the rewards make Brave ads very attractive to me.

That's all good and nice, I would watch the adds for some money (since I'm forced anyways to watch them) but what you forgot to mention is how can we withdraw our payments for watching the adds? That's the important question. I don't think anyone here will say that they like adds...ahahah

I think it is a great idea, so much so that I suggested it in an earlier bounty you did on this site. Advertising is unfortunately a necessary evil unless you want to move to model where people pay to view sites. I think giving people the option to opt in, in turn for a reward is the most fair way to go.

What do you think of Ads in general? What do you like and don’t like about them? Honestly, I think they are immoral and a waste of human endeavour. They focus our attention on things we specifically don't want to attend to for the sake of propping up capitalism and consumerist culture. I think it is especially disappointing that the internet has largely been supported/monetized by ads, which really don't create any value for society, and simply waste attention. What do you think of the Brave ads model? What would you improve? I think it's interesting to experiment with a more honest advertising system, even if you can't do away with ads altogether. I think the key will be to ensure the tipping system is actually an effective incentive. Honestly, as a regular internet browser, I don't feel that strong an incentive to "give back to the community" by tipping websites that I visit. I think perhaps you could allow websites to offer people more selfish incentives in exchange for tips, such as vanity collectibles and emotes, like they do in Twitch chat and games like DotA/LoL, so that people can show off how they are patronizing a specific community.

Foremost Brave browser are unique. It has feature that other browser don't have. But are the features good enough or really what we need? Certainly some would say its great for a browser to have mining feature built-in and speed but some would say its look normal same like other browser. Generally it won't be what we would like as a whole. For instance the speed, one would not notice it like me, if we are to open a few windows the speed is somehow the same as Chrome to be exact. The tokenised BAT is not as easy as it were written or thought. It goes to more to watching video content which may not suite everyone. But its a thumbs up for Brave to introduce a competitve browser.

1 What do you think of Ads in general? What do you like and don’t like about them?: I like advertisements because it is the only way that there is quality content. The important thing of the announcements is that they are in correct places and that they are not abused with an overload or overprint of them 2 What do you think of the Brave ads model? What would you improve? I like the Brave model to add value to the three parts of the triangle around advertising. But you have to be clear about the exceptions. It can not happen that in regions the benefit for the consumer is not offered and if the part of beeing to the supports for example is activated.

What do you think of Ads in general? What do you like and don’t like about them? Ads are always going to be a controversial subject. For the most part they can be kind of annoying but then again, occasionally one will come along that really appeals to you for whatever reason and you're happy to click on it. This issue is, particularly when you are on a website that spams you really badly with them you almost stop paying them attention. They're just an annoyance in this instance. The worst of the 'breeds'of ads is the pop up, the one that spam opens a new window and every time you try to close it reopens. I don't believe that anyone ever bought or invested in anything one of these ads promoted. Banner ads are fine, they're less intrusive and it feels more like it's not forced down your throat so much as pop ups. The biggest problem with ads is that they are generally presented to you buy a website which tracks what you are doing, where you are etc and just because you went online and bought a lawnmower for example one day it doesnt mean you want to be spammed with gardening adverts all the time, maybe you bought your daughter a dolls house? doesn't mean you want to see barbie ads all day long. My point is, whatever the algorithm that decides which ads to show you doesn't work that well and adverts are only ever truly successful when they hit their target audience. which to me seems to be very rarely. What do you think of the Brave ads model? What would you improve? I think the brave ads model is much better than the existing models out there as it lets you choose the frequency of adverts and even if you want to see them or not. not only does this make for a more enjoyable internet usage experience, it massively reduces the data usage on your mobile phone and tablet when using 4g/5g services and hence can increase the battery life of your device. Id like to see brave focus on truly making the ad experience totally tailored to the user. If I'm a big marvel movies fan and i love video games then I'd like to see the Avengers trailer and the new xbox releases advertised. When adverts actually offer you a product which you truly connect with you can actually enjoy watching them and surely that's a win win for everyone involved?! I actually just had my first brave ad as i was writing this and it was actually something quite interesting. I didn't buy the product but I clicked and had a read over the website. The little ad pop up in the corner is small and unobtrusive. Easy to ignore when your not in the mood or don't have time for ads and easy enough to see when you want to earn a little BAT! It's hard for me to criticize Brave because i fundamentally agree with what they are doing so i'm just going to leave it at that!

I do like to see adverts when on line because it reminds me something I have wanted to do or buy,but it becomes irritating when it comes without your knowledge,without respect for your privacy, no notification,consuming your data,wasting your device battery and time without a single financial compensation. If brave will make adjustments to all these complaints as mentioned in their surveys and they works toward it and if they introduced financial benefits, it will be a welcome development,because it will based on individuals users requirements,in fact watch and earn is what some people come in internet for,with this brave ideas it's obvious that more people will embrace brave browser.

Ads are annoying and useless. I don t see any point to watch an add in internet. And most important thing is they are unsecure and untrusted. So if i see an ad interresting i can not click on it because of the security problem. I have Brave. Not a million dolar idea but all in one package is nice. And promis about security wich is a big deal. But i have to say there is no login part and private key tab. So if i have any BAT on browser i don t know how to keep it.

1002/5000 The idea of ​​Brave Ads is certainly great but it is not a novelty on the internet since the beginning of the network is trying to implement it. I am concerned about two issues, the first is whether it will be profitable for users and if it is how to fight effectively against fraud. Legality is another key point, Brave already talks about KYC verification to be able to charge. This is a contradiction because Brave says fight in favor of privacy but if we give our data totally real the intrusion will be much bigger. In other words google follows me by ip and other methods but can not be sure who is on the other side of the screen (many people per ip? But Brave would have total control. And it is at this point where I believe that the key is more than paying us for ads that is a big market should pay us for our data that is a gigantic market. And of course maintaining our privacy above all of the governments that are the most dangerous institutions without a doubt.

In general I hate ads. They are intrusive and annoying. The targeted ones which use cookies from previous browser history are often creepy. It’s scary how your data is abused by large companies. I rarely see an ad that I find useful, unless it’s about an event coming up I don’t know about, or a discount on something. Braves ad model is 1000x better than the typical ones through things like google. The ads aren’t creepy, and there not nearly as intrusive popping up on the bottom of the screen. I like being paid for them, it makes it slightly less annoying. I also glance at them since I am being paid. I’ll likely use the BAT awarded to tip websites for there lost revenue. It’s the right thing to do. I’d suggest having the reward fluctuate a bit based on what the advertisement is for. For example if there’s a lot of people trying to advertise for similar keywords, and share it with viewers.

The word used above is perfect. Ads are intrusive. They distract from reading web content, and they tend to distract me when I open chrome to do something specific, then I get pulled on a long tangential clicking spree and completely forget about why I picked up my phone in the first place. I think the Brave ads model is intriguing. I particularly like that revenue is redistributed to the end user, that's turning the advertising model on it's head! I'm concerned however that viewing ads on Brave could be yet another time suck on my phone. To me, for this to be well done it would be like an advertising concierge: there when I need it, with helpful information, and not pushy or needing too much of my attention. I am continuing to explore the Brave browser. Looking forward to opportunities to share more feedback on my experience.

What do you think of Ads in general? What do you like and don’t like about them? Before Brave browser adoption I was using chrome and use extension called ad blocker since years to get rid of ads on YouTube or browsing internet. After using Brave build in ad blocker feels more comfortable while browsing. What I don't like about ads is its unrelated and quit annoying to see and divert the focus what I am doing. What I like about ads if I get paid some BAT from watching it that sounds cool. What do you think of the Brave ads model? What would you improve? Brave Ads Model is quit interesting because we can get paid BAT token while watching ads on Brave. I get a ad today on brave while surfing bitcointalk forum its not really annoying at all I enjoying while surfing internet on brave browser! Brave team have to include more relevant ads and track less data consumption should be important.

What do you think of Ads in general? What do you like and don’t like about them? Ads are a great way to learn about new products, organizations and events. Too many websites are using ads in a way that is annoying and diminishes the user experience. There are overlays and obnoxious popups that are a plague on the Internet. Presented in a natural or unobtrusive way, they can be very beneficial. What do you think of the Brave ads model? What would you improve? The Brave model is very ingenious. Unlike websites that have so-called push notifications, Brave ads look like a standard Windows notification that can be easily dismissed. One improvement they could make is to have a better way to prompt users that they can reward websites/creators more easily.

What do you think of Ads in general? What do you like and don’t like about them? I like the ads but the way internet now forcing you to see the ads are unacceptable. There are sites which have hidden ads so when you click around the page you basically directed to the ads page which is annoying. If every site agrees to show one or 2 ads per page is acceptable because the more ads the site will have the more time it will take to load the page and heavier the site will be for the internet bandwidth and as well for the system processor. What do you think of the Brave ads model? What would you improve? I like the brave model and i now trying to switch from Firefox to brave as the concept is good and the idea or rewarding by watching the ads is great. The only concert is the notification of those ads need a good approach so to get notify everyone. As I haven't seen any ads active so, I think it will be great if they have more info about the ads like what kind of ads it is either a video or a site and any other security info that will be helpful
