As I understood, Brave was supposed to change internet, change the way people advertise, change the way advertisements are shown, change the way Youtubers and content creators monetize their pages, but I encountered with such a great lie that was growing while this browser was learning how to walk, it’s about “Earning money by using a browser”, the part of “earning money” can be only achieved if you are a content creator and try to do your best and effort to make better content to your fans so you eventually will get donations in BAT and also you can wake up interests to some of your fans in the proyect to get a reward after a while, there’s no issue around “what’s supposed to be”, but what actually happens is that a lot of people exploits their referral links with titles called: “Browser that pays you”, “This browser paid me 1000 dollars” and etcetera.
I don’t know if they’re getting such a great quantity or they’re flexing at us but I don’t see any intention to promote the Browser, just making grow a lie that is further to the real objective of the browser, “Hey, I have a method that will make you win 100 dollars every month, your referrals don’t require to be youtubers, just to have a YouTube account to where to receive the money”.
I mean, this is insulting for the youtubers that really do the right thing.
And some youtubers with the tag of “Earn Money” are involved, even common users that tell the lie are involved, I know that it’s important to promote the browser but if you put big spam and Clickbait titles with the lie of “Winning easy money”, I don’t know if you really want to save your internet or fill your pockets, it’s possible to promote the browser but is unethical to make exaggerations and tell lies to attract people, in some way, exploiting the referral link, putting a bait to make profit, guiding people to break the rules, trying to put “methods of earning money” that are really broken and it’s against the rules.
I don’t know if this browser was made to change internet or to fill pockets and make revenue on lies.
Because I know the intention of this proyect is amazing, but either there was no control at the beginning or the staff didn’t know that this was going to happen.
