If you’ve already downloaded the new Brave Browser (support us with this download), then you’ve probably already seen how insanely fast and how effective it is at keeping your web-browsing private. But did you know that every user is also eligible to claim free BAT?
Note: Free BAT grants are given out each month and have a limited supply. If you do not see an option to claim any in Step 3, check back again next month! Or if you want to start earning, check out our tutorial on how to earn BAT by turning on Brave Ads.
This free BAT is given out by Brave from their User-Growth-Pool (UGP), which is intended for promoting the Brave platform. Thus, this free BAT cannot be withdrawn to your own wallet for personal use. And as such, this free BAT can only be used towards donating to your favorite websites, YouTubers, or Twitch streamers (more platform support coming soon).
For iOS users, they will have to wait. BAT wallets will be coming soon!
Step 1: Open a new Tab in Brave
If you don’t have Brave yet, consider supporting us by downloading it here with our promo link!
Step 2: Opt-in to Rewards
Step 3: Acknowledge Token Grant
After you select Join Rewards, the popup will dismiss. You’ll need to reopen the BAT notification window to acknowledge it.
Please be aware that these free BAT grants have a limited supply. If you do not see this notification, that means the supply for the month has run out. So be sure to check it again next month!
But if you want to start earning, check out our tutorial on how to earn BAT by turning on Brave Ads.
Step 4: Claim the Grant in the Reward Settings
These steps seemed a bit redundant, but don’t worry. We’re almost there!
Step 5: Initiate the Claim
Step 6: Prove that you’re a human
Step 7: Token Grant Received
Step 8: View BAT tokens in your Brave wallet
After you’ve claimed your token grant, you can open up your Brave wallet to see your BAT balance at any time!
And that’s it! Congratulations on receiving your very first BAT tokens inside your Brave browser! As the Brave platform develops, there will likely be many websites and partners that will accept BAT as payment for products and services. In the mean time, feel free to use your BAT to tip your favorite websites!
