I seems to me from what I’ve read that the only people who gain any real value from BAT are Advertisers. This is assuming I understand how it works which I’m not confident I do.
I get BAT for looking at adds and I can buy BAT.
I can “donate” BAT advertisers and content providers.
But I cannot cash in BAT for whatever its monetary value supposedly is! However, at some point if I recall correctly I may be able to trade BAT for some kind of premium content or otherwise with approved advertisers but not for any type of physical goods or services.
The “value” therefore is actually a gimmick with not actual monetary value to me.
Is this the basic gist of it? Please do not be offended I freely admit I can have this all completely wrong. For some reason I’ve always had difficulty understanding any form of crypto currency and how I can use it to my benefit. The one thing I do understand is that if I owned Bitcoin I could use it the same way I use money with places that accept it.
