Why is Brave showing advertisements on Home Page background photos?

One of the reasons for selecting Brave as my default browser on my Android Phone is that I hate advertisements so I’m wondering why Brave is displaying advertisements on the Home Page background photos? For example the current home screen background on my phone shows and advertisement for Bybit that says

Visit bybit.com

Shouldn’t Brave home screen backgrounds be free of advertisements like this?

Inquiring minds want to know.

The advertisement that is shown in the new tab of brave browser is a paid campaign and you are getting paid for it. But if you want, you can opt out of it.
Just go to Settings - New Tab Page - Sponsored Images and turn that off.
And there you go. A new tab page free of ads.
Hope it helps.

Thank you so much. I had no idea that option was available or where to look for it. Perhaps part of the problem for me is that I do’t have Brave setup to pay me anything as I want my browser to be 100% advertisement free. Thanks again for your help.
