Microtipping: Future of Social Rewards?

With a minimum BAT tip of 1 BAT, there’s been some discussion around the interwebs of instituting a custom # BAT tip.

This would allow, as one user mentioned, the ability to microtip a fraction of a BAT at the same time they save a tweet for later – which would benefit everyone. Whereas, at present, a whole BAT might not be sustainable for each time I’d want to share some love – a fraction of a BAT would.

With Uphold as the present custodial license for holding and transferring BAT and BAT rewards around the Brave ecosystem, does this work super easily – comparing it to microtipping BAT on the Ether blockchain? Is Uphold off-chain, allowing any number of smaller transactions? Would future custodial solutions that aren’t requiring KYC allowing us to also microtip in this fashion?

Microtipping (along with the ease of use of the Tip function on social sites that Brave allows) would restructure the way people use (and think about) social interaction online.

  • To drive revenues, you should let your website proprietors know above Brave browser and BAT: https://jare.cloud/2020/01/15/better-web-brave-rewards-your-content-make-money-monetizing-twitter/ Since verifying myself as a Brave publisher a/o 4 days ago I’ve earned ~11 BAT ($2.20 USD) in donations to my different platforms. That might not seem like much, but for someone with a larger audience or following it can serve as an additional revenue stream. This is compared to my Medium.com earnings for the last ~12 days, at $1.80 USD.  As a Brave affiliate you can also earn up to $7.50 USD for browser installations that remain installed after 30 days. Since putting up that Brave article that I linked you to, I have 7 downloads and 4 installs – this could yield up to $30 USD in affiliate income, over 4 days of referrals so far.

Comment: I agree with u/O1O1O1O – because Brave rewards users with advertiser’s funds to then pay (or not..) their favorite content producers, then every user eventually has a BAT or a few to redistribute – and everyone wins. Brave also allows content creators/publishers of many times – theoretically any platform that includes an API where we can decide if one user’s view on a profile is for a specific other user. This discounts sites like Facebook, Minds, but is already beautifully connected on Twitter and here on Reddit. This is potentially far more views, far more publishers and far more ad spend than Medium.

In the next iteration of my 1st party ad service, I created Javascript code that randomly chooses one of two ads to display in the header of each of the pages on my blog. This Brave-friendly ad displays content about Brave or Publish0x. It also detects mobile displays and gives a smaller banner for mobile.

It’s genius in it’s simplicity. . . I half want to re-package this into a WordPress plugin for other Brave content creators on WP.

Here’s some code:

if (/Android|webOS|iPhone|iPad|iPod|BlackBerry|BB|PlayBook|IEMobile|Windows Phone|Kindle|Silk|Opera Mini/i.test(navigator.userAgent)) {

	var random = Math.random(1)

	if (random < 0.5){

	$('#masthead').prepend('<a href="[https://jare.cloud/2020/01/15/better-web-brave-rewards-your-content-make-money-monetizing-twitter/](https://jare.cloud/2020/01/15/better-web-brave-rewards-your-content-make-money-monetizing-twitter/)"><img src="[https://jare.cloud/468.png](https://jare.cloud/468.png)" /></a>')


}
	else {

$('#masthead').prepend('<a href="[https://jare.cloud/2020/01/20/publish0x-allowing-rewards-for-content-with-their-own-funds-re-distribution-of-wealth-defined/](https://jare.cloud/2020/01/20/publish0x-allowing-rewards-for-content-with-their-own-funds-re-distribution-of-wealth-defined/)"><img src="[https://jare.cloud/468-2.png](https://jare.cloud/468-2.png)" /></a>')	
}

}

else {

	var random = Math.random(1)

	if (random < 0.5){

	$('#masthead').prepend('<a href="[https://jare.cloud/2020/01/15/better-web-brave-rewards-your-content-make-money-monetizing-twitter/](https://jare.cloud/2020/01/15/better-web-brave-rewards-your-content-make-money-monetizing-twitter/)"><img src="[https://jare.cloud/728.png](https://jare.cloud/728.png)" /></a>')

}

	}
