Naked Security on Brave


“Brave, then, is less a browser than a demo client for what is claimed to be a fairer ad platform in which advertisers, publishers and users are rewarded for taking part in what Eich calls a blockchain-based “game” (Brave gets a cut too).”

"It’s a fascinating concept but, ironically, its advantages are hidden from people in the same way that the surveillance of today’s ad-tracking systems is.

It’s often said that with Google and Facebook, the user becomes the product. Brave’s alternative of turning users into tokens sounds like a modest advance at best."

I appreciate the work they do over at NS, but this is the most non-story about Brave I’ve seen.


thanks for sharing the story :slight_smile: I forwarded it to the team.
