BAT payments in YouTube


#1

Hi,

When I watch YouTube videos, does my BAT payment go to the YouTube video contributor or to YouTube itself?

Many thanks

Good news: It goes to the actual YouTube channel, including when YouTube channels are embedded in other pages. See this announcement:

This is also the case for Twitch, and is in the plans to be the case for other platforms too, such as Twitter, Reddit and so on!

By default, YouTube.com (the overarching domain) is excluded from your Brave Payments. However, you can go in and manually include YouTube.com if you so desire. There has also been discussion of a so-called “landlord-tenant split” option for future versions as well, allowing users to split their donations to the actual creators and the underlying platform.
