What is Basic Attention?

Basic Attention Token (BAT) is an open-source, decentralized ad exchange platform built on Ethereum blockchain. Created in 2016 by Brendan Eich, the creator of JavaScript and co-founder of Mozilla. With former experience at the Mozilla web browser, Brendan Eich, Brian Bondy and Scott Locklin created the Brave browser. Brave browser is an open-source, privacy-focused browser that blocks ads, trackers and malware.

On Brave browser, users can choose to watch privacy-preserving advertisements and, in return, they are rewarded with BAT coins.
BAT token is an ERC-20 payment token running on Ethereum. It can be exchanged between ad consumers, advertisers, and publishers, eliminating the need for intermediaries and tracking devices.

Basic Attention Token held an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) on May 2017 for its eponymous ERC-20 utility token, raising approximately $35M USD at the time.

In nutshell, the BAT ecosystem is relevant for advertisements in a private and secure way for Brave browser users. Plus users get a share of BAT coins as a reward.
Advertisers can get the viewer’s attention in a less costly manner as they can filter those who want to receive advertisements from those who don’t. Finally, publishers enjoy better revenues because of the targeted ads.

Frequently Asked Questions

When you first buy coin, you’re issued with two keys: public and private.

  • A public key serves as an address that can be shared with other parties to perform transactions.
  • A private key represents a randomly generated number that signs transactions and protects your assets from malicious attacks. If it gets compromised or lost, you won’t be able to access your crypto wallet to spend, withdraw, or transfer your assets.

To safeguard and keep track of your keys, you can use online or offline wallets. Online wallets, also known as hot wallets, store private keys on systems or devices that are connected to the internet. Hot wallets are easy and convenient to use, however, they come with several drawbacks. Besides being susceptible to attacks and a honeypot for hackers, with hot wallets, the custody of private keys is often entrusted to a third party such as a crypto exchange, which means you never have full control over your funds. The safer choice are specialized hardware wallets that store private keys offline. Stealing private keys from a hardware wallet would require physical access to the wallet and corresponding PIN or the recovery phrase. What’s more, with hardware wallet, you don’t need to rely on third party custodians.

Ledger Nano is the industry-leading hardware wallet. With more than five million customers, Ledger Nano wallets have several layers of security that protect private keys, and hence your assets:

  • Your private keys are stored on secure element chips.
  • A PIN code and a 24-word recovery phrase are required to access the wallet.
  • Ledger Nano crypto wallets have been built using highly durable materials for protection against physical damage.

With full isolation between private keys and your computer/mobile, Ledger Nano cold wallets keep your keys secure and give you complete control over your assets.
