If you’re using the new Brave Browser (support us with this download), you can now instantly tip a website if you have BAT tokens loaded up in your wallet. Websites verified with Brave that are tipped are usually notified of your donations within a few days. For sites that don’t know about Brave yet, any BAT donated to them are held in an account for them to claim whenever they reach a threshold of $10 USD (I verified this amount with official BAT team members during Telegram chat sessions).
If you’re a new Brave user and don’t have BAT yet, don’t worry! Check out our tutorial on how to claim some free BAT tokens!
Step 1: Open a website using Brave
Step 2: Open your Brave wallet to send a tip!
Make sure your Brave wallet is already loaded up with some BAT tokens! If you’re a new Brave user, you should be able to claim some tokens for free! Check out that tutorial here.
Step 3: Select donation amount, send the tip!
You can tip frugally, or generously! But hey, a tip’s a tip!
When you see a Thank You confirmation banner, your tip has been sent!
Brave Wallet Balance Delay
If you immediately open up your Brave wallet to check your balance, you may see that the balance didn’t update to reflect the tip. This is normal. The tips are handled and settled by Brave on the backend for fraud prevention. As long as you saw the Thank You banner, your tip will have registered! Just wait a bit and check back later!
A Couple Days Later…
Voila! After waiting just a couple days and checking back, we can see that our wallet had 5 BAT deducted, which is the same amount that we tipped.
Brave is creating an incredible new ecosystem that allows users to contribute back to content creators. Website-tipping is just the start of what you’ll be able to do with BAT while surfing the web using Brave!
