BAT rewards drop from 0.01 BAT/ad to 0.001 BAT/ad

In the past, Brave gave us 0.01 BAT/ad. However, now we are getting 0.001 BAT. Why did this happen!? I would also like to note that it seems a bit overdoing, considering that we only get 0.11 pennies/ad.

This problem has already been mostly solved. 70% of ads are now at 0.01 BAT. (stats are here)

Note 1:
Users get different amounts of BAT (including $0.005, $0.0025, $0.001, and the normal $0.01). Does anyone have a theory for the instability?

Note 2:
Some moderators have said in other posts that the stock markets’ instability causes the giving to change, but it was at $1.6/BAT once and they still gave 0.01 BAT/ad.

Note 3:

Brave has stated in the terms and conditions of BAT (terms here)

You earn BAT equal to approximately 70% of the revenue Company earns from the ad campaigns shown to you.

Is this true? Are they using approximately (a smart word choice) to avoid the problem? Is this a bug, like Brendan Eich tweeted? And what else?

I’m having the same issue, certainly hope it’s not intentional, I love the project, but it’s hardly worth it if I need to view 1000 ads to make a buck.

That is way too much of a correction. For a lousy 5 BAT that would be 5000 ads a month, which you can’t do because they limit how many you see every day. Guess my rewards is being turned off until they reverse this policy. It’s easier to just buy the BAT myself, and then I don’t have to use Uphold.

I’m thinking it’s likely a mistake, the draw of making money on ads is a big (if not the biggest part) of what’s driving people to adopt Brave. If the rewards are this dismal, it’s no longer worth it, I think it would put a meaningful dent in their new users.

Nope, it looks like they lowered the rewards.

That’s pretty disappointing, the browser is still good by itself, but they aren’t going to get new users with those rewards.

So after viewing 25,000 ads you can finally verify your Android on uphold If your eyeballs haven’t falling out of your head

I feel like this is something they could have discussed with the community before moving forward with it. At least we now know it is actually .0011 and not just .001. lol

0.001 BAT per ad? This is ridiculous. If that is how much Brave appreciates attention of their users I would love to see how little their employees must earn!

I don’t see any for that amount, our attention is worth more then 0.001 that’s an insult, these advertisers need to be blocked, we need a new ad blocker, one that blocks cheap advertisers from getting into our notifications
