Is payout based on ads watched?

Description of the issue:

I recently had my browser clear all of my estimated rewards to 0 BAT from around .5

But it still shows that I’ve watched around 50 ads.

When the next month rolls around, does it calculate how much BAT to give me based on those ads? Or since my “estimated rewards” have been cleared will it not give me any payments at all?

Just wanna know how that system works thanks
