Oh hello, it’s me again! 😀 It’s been a while since my last post in this blog. So, here’s another post about Brave Squad Indonesia (best known as @IndoBrave) monthly meetup that held few days ago.
Let’s take a look. 🙂
Monthly Meetup – April 2018 Edition
This meetup’s held at Starbucks, Lagoon Avenue Mall on Monday, April 30th 2018. The attendees start to arrive from 6 PM and the meetup is “officially” started around 7 PM after waiting for all attendees.
After we ordered our coffee, Viking KARWUR opened this meetup and then I had a chance to gave the latest information about Brave Browser.
Brave Browser Project Updates
One of the latest information is about the new partnership with Dow Jones Media Group. In short, Brave and Dow Jones Media Group will offer premium content to new Brave users and to test blockchain-based payment technology.usage in digital publishing. You can read more about it here.
Another partnership announcement is Brave partners with 2 YouTubers, Philip DeFranco and Bart Baker. With this partnership, they will help Brave to spread a word about Brave to their viewers and other influential creators.
In addition to partnership announcements, Brave also hit 2.2 million monthly active users. The numbers doubled since January report that by the end of 2017 Brave have more than 1 million monthly active users. And Brave also anticipate millions more by the end of 2018
Upcoming Brave Ads: Get Paid to Browse with Brave
This one is my favorite updates from Brave. It’s confirmed that Brave users will get some revenue share if they opt-in to see ads in Brave. Basically, Brave will always block ads and trackers by default, and it requires users to opt-in to the ads system in order to receive those shares. Those ads will be private since users data will always on users device.
And then Brave users can use the received shares (in BAT) in exchange for premium content or to support publishers and creators using the current Brave Payments system. CNET had the full story here.
