Frequently asked questions

Brave Rewards is a unique feature of the Brave Browser that rewards users for their attention while browsing. It allows users to earn Basic Attention Tokens (BAT) by viewing privacy-respecting ads. Users can then use these tokens to support their favorite web content creators or websites directly or keep them for themselves. This system aims to create a more equitable, transparent, and user-focused method of funding online content, where users have control over their online experience, including the ads they see. Brave Rewards also includes an auto-contribute feature, which automatically distributes a user’s BAT balance based on the time they spend on various sites, helping to support content creators in a decentralized manner.

Using both Brave and its Brave Wallet won't cost you a dime. Nonetheless, many blockchain transactions come with network charges, like Ethereum gas fees. These fees differ across networks, influenced by demand and other elements.

For specific transactions such as swaps and buying cryptocurrencies, Brave might impose additional fees. Rest assured, these fees will be clearly shown and are on par with what other wallets might charge.

The Brave wallet supports Ethereum, EVM-compatible chains, and L2 solutions, Filecoin, and Solana. Brave exchanges can be made on Avalanche, Binance Smart Chain, Celo, Fantom, Optimism, and Polygon.
