Brave Rewards is built on the Basic Attention Token (BAT). When you join Brave Rewards, your browser will automatically start tallying (only on your device’s local storage) the attention you spend on sites you visit. Once a month, Brave Rewards will send the corresponding amount of BAT, divided up based on your attention, from your local browser-based wallet to the sites you’ve visited. You can remove sites you don’t want to support, and tip creators directly too.

After careful analysis, the Brave team have isolated a high number of fraudulent referrers in specific countries. Effective Thursday, June 11, 2020, the Referral Program will be put on hold for new Creators in the following countries:
These changes are specific to the Referral Program, and will be applicable to existing Creators soon, so the team urge Creators in these regions to halt their Referral Campaigns if possible.
Finally, effective June 11, 2020, an ID-verified Uphold account will now be required to use the Referral program as a Creator.
Brave users can continue to use the browser freely anywhere worldwide. And users can contribute to verified creators from anywhere in the world. The above countries are put on hold from participating in the Referral Program as we resolve fraud issues. Existing and new creators in these countries will be prevented from participating in the Referral Program, though the team hope to resume the program for these countries in the near future.
