Earn crypto for seeing ads

As reported earlier by U.Today, Sergey Zhukovsky, Brave’s senior software engineers for Android, revealed that Brave Rewards were coming to Android in Q1 or Q2. He also claimed that it was easier to integrate Brave’s ad system with Android. Brave finally started rewarding its users with BAT for watching ads on March 9 (only those who opt-in to see the ads in the browser’s development channel are able to take advantage of the new feature).
