Coinbase Offering $10 In Basic Attention Token (BAT)
Update: You might need to join the waitlist to do this deal, most people are reporting that they are receiving an e-mail after around 24 hours.
- Coinbase is offering $10 in Basic Attention Token (BAT) a type of cryptocurrency for watching four short videos (should be 11 minutes total)
BAT is actually kind of cool and we have discussed it on the site before. There is a browser call Brave, this has in built ad blocker but one thing I like is that you can set up a monthly subscription to websites/youtube channels you want to support, we discuss this in more depth here and you pay these sites using BAT. For example you might set to contribute $1 monthly split between 10 sites you love and each month those sites would receive $0.1 (minus the fees from Brave).
Personally I don’t care if people use adblocker on this site or not, I think people that do use adblocker are more likely to be tech savvy and share the blog with friends/family and let’s face it sometimes ads are just annoying. I do think this is a cool way to contribute to sites you enjoy without feeling guilty about using an adblocker. Obviously BAT can be used for other things as well, maybe you will learn about that in the videos. Also $10 is $10.
