I am a new user to the Brave browser which I just started using tonight. I understand that somehow I am rewarded BAT for viewing ads over time but I’m confused by what I see in Brave Rewards…
There is the option to fund the wallet with BAT and then there is “auto-contribute” feature which looks like it will pay out BAT to sites I visit? So I am in fact PAYING to browse myself and not the other way round?
I suspect I have that wrong somehow but how do you extract BAT and convert it to USD once you have it? It says on this page (https://brave.com/faq/#anonymous-contributions) that the BAT wallet is unidirectional and so you can’t transfer out the BAT?
Please help I’m very confused and every other page on BAT/Brave I’ve read has not helped to be honest.
