BAT/Brave in the News:

Supporting Brave means empowering freedom.
With Brave, a revolutionary browser from Brendan Eich (Javascript creator, Mozilla, and Firefox Founder) you just pay a monthly contribution which is divided among the publisher sites you visit the most. Avoiding shitty ads and trackers. It’s like Netflix, but for surfing the Internet. You pay a monthly price to reward content creator while everything flows.

5 Industries Primed for Blockchain Disruption
There are many startups taking a crack at solving the attention economy problem, but perhaps none are quite as on the nose as the blockchain project, Basic Attention Token. Not only does BAT provide an internet browser that blocks ads and trackers, but its business model works on the revolutionary concept of directly paying consumers for viewing ads. This incentivizes users to view ads they'd normally block or tune out, and it achieves more precise targeting for advertisers with lower rates of fraud.

Basic Attention Token (BAT) Hosts 1st Meetup in Seoul
Basic Attention Token (BAT) and Brave Software CEO Brendan Eich aims to change that Internet usage paradigm and shift users into a decentralized blockchain-based digital advertising and services platform with the open-source Brave browser as an example where users are given a more private, faster, and better browsing experience while also giving them their own freedom to reward their favorite sites and content creators with its native BAT cryptocurrency.

Is 2018 the Year of the Security Token?
Utility is where the market headed after bitcoin became old news. The aptly named ‘utility tokens’ are the result of an ICO whereby users of a blockchain platform pay with the tokens sold during the ICO, or that they earn for providing some other relevant input. Basic Attention Token rewards users in BAT for using the BRAVE browser and viewing ads.

News You Should Know:

Inside the Brotherhood of the Ad Blockers
Pi-hole (as in “shut your …”) is a free, open source software package designed to run on a Raspberry Pi, a basic computer that’s popular with DIYers, fits in the palm of your hand, and retails for about $35. Most ad blockers have to be installed on individual devices and work only in web browsers, but Pi-hole blocks ads across an entire network, including in most apps.
[This article mentions Pi-hole, which is a great concept. Briefly mentions Brave, so put it in the news you should know section.]

Apple is reportedly removing apps that share your location data with third parties
Apple has started removing apps from the App Store that violate the company’s policies by sharing location data with third parties without explicit consent, reports 9to5Mac. The breaches are related to sections 5.1.1 and 5.1.2 of the company’s App Store Guidelines, which say that apps must not transmit “user location data to third parties without explicit consent from the user [or] for unapproved purposes.”

Google goes for the wow at I/O, but what about privacy?
While there were some jaw-dropping announcements, what we didn't get was a whole lot of insight into how the world's biggest search company is thinking about its approach to privacy and data collection. ZDNet, CNET's sister site, points out that there was no mention of privacy, and only one mention of security during the entire two-hour keynote on Tuesday.

Medium abruptly cancels the membership programs of its 21 remaining subscription publisher partners
