I don’t see BAT as a solution to advertising online. Also it has none of the properties to be money or cryptocurrency. Its a token on top of Ethereum (which is another case) that Brave controls. You may ask, users don’t buy it with money and only earn it how that makes it a scam? It has monetary value in the market, created out of thin (launched as an ICO) and the distribution is being done by Brave via their “anonymized tracking of users” it just feels wrong and not legit. Can users verify how much BAT Brave controls? Here is an interesting analysis about that: https://medium.com/glassnode-insights/an-on-chain-distribution-analysis-of-basic-attention-token-bat-4cc60fd0c48a
I would even consider Brave as a scam because of their token thingy.
Not surprised ¯_(ツ)_/¯
