Brave-based Internet Browser Brave will begin using the Civic verification verification services of the blockchain identity to ensure that publishers are paid for their content with Brave's Basic Attention Token (BAT).
Companies announced on Friday that content producers hope to participate in Brave. The "verified publishers" program can use the Civic Identity and Know-Your-Customer (KYC) verification services to confirm their identity and earn BAT token. Both startups maintain their focus on protecting users' identities and personal information through their services.
Brave's platform works by allowing users to pay for content by anonymously donating BAT tokens via the Brave browser, which publishers receive. With the new partnership, publishers who verify their authenticity can directly link an ethereum portfolio to receive payments.
Civic's "Reusable KYC" program will ensure that these editors can verify their identities while maintaining a certain sense of privacy. These publishers will also be able to use mobile devices or similar platforms to collect payments.
The co-founder and civic CEO Vinny Lingham noted in a statement that Brave worked to combat the challenges of Internet privacy, explaining:
"Since Brave is experiencing an exponential publisher and a growth of users, the Civic implementation will enable more people to safely and safely use the Brave platform by establishing and sustaining trust between publishers and users We are thrilled to partner with Brave and bring our trusted identity verification services to help to build a better browser with the advantages of blockchain technology. "
Brave currently has an average of 4 million monthly users, the press release said. More than 21,000 publishers have opted for the Brave program, including the Wall Street Journal, MarketWatch and Barron.
The brave CEO and co-founder Brendan Eich said in a statement that his platform "directly connects users and publishers in a transparent system to guarantee privacy and authenticity, without intermediaries collecting user data."
