Brave Software, the company behind the privacy-focused Brave Browser, has partnered with the TAP Network, a rewards-as-a-service tech company, to enable its users to redeem their BAT tokens. In a press release shared with CryptoSlate, Brave said that the collaboration with TAP will enable it to connect brands with engaged consumer audience while respecting their privacy.

“This partnership with TAP Network supports our mission of connecting consumers and brands in a respectful, mutually beneficial way, and contributes to the growth of our overall ecosystem by expanding the utility of BAT.”
Brave desktop users will be able to redden the browser’s native cryptocurrency, the Basic Attention Token (BAT) for real-world rewards offered by over a quarter of a million brands and merchants in the tap network. These include American Airlines, Delta, Hotels.com, Uber, Amazon, Apple, Target, Walmart, HBO, and many others.
Users will also be able to contribute their BAT tokens to over one thousand charitable causes in the TAP Network, including the Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity, and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
One small step for Brave, one giant leap for Brave users
Lin Dai, the co-founder, and CEO of the TAP Network said that most rewards tokens offer very limited redemption choices.
