A new feature is being added to the Brave Browser for users that allow ads to earn BAT. According to a post on the BAT subreddit, brave browser users are now able to withdraw their earnings if we have connected a verified Uphold account to their brave browser.
The new feature is not yet available on the main version of the browser but it is available for testing on the nightly 0.70 version of the brave browser, which can be downloaded on GitHub.
The project aims to build a trading platform and is supported, among others by billionaire VC fund Tim Draper.
Another new feature that has been added is the ability to buy BAT with credit card from the browser account.
This new component that enables users to withdraw BAT from their browser account is one of the most exciting components for the BAT community.
We are adding takeout ability in 0.69, but the default is what most people want: to donate back to their favorite creators. That more than replaces lost ad revenue, especially for our users who don’t click on ads and ignore most, or who use a thorough blocker on other browsers, said Brendan Eich, the CEO of Brave Software
Brave has enabled ads a few months ago in some countries, and this allows people to earn BAT in exchange of allowing their browser to show ads. However till now, users were not able to withdraw those Bat tokens but only could tip them to their preferred websites, Youtube channels, and recently even Reddit and twitter accounts.
With the new feature, they will be able to withdraw these funds and use them in whatever way they want.
Till now the only option on the Brave Browser is the Uphold wallet because Uphold comply with AML (Anti-Money Laundering) requirements and KYC (Know Your Customer) rules
