If you’ve already downloaded the new Brave Browser, 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?
Or refer to previous article on how to join Brave Browser
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!
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 Thus, this free BAT cannot be withdrawn to your own wallet for personal use.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).
Free BAT can only be claimed on the desktop (PC/mac) version of the browser. Free BAT currently cannot be claimed on mobile browsers, such as Android and iOS.
