Today I received a pleasant surprise in my inbox:
That’s a bit more than $8 at the current exchange rate.
I didn’t know that someone (or multiple someones) was already using the Brave browser and allocating Basic Attention Tokens to me, so that was a really awesome surprise for me today. Thank you very kindly to the person or people who have taken the effort and funds to contribute to me in this way. Since abandoning Patreon, I still haven’t found a good strategy for on-going funding, but it would be great if this method picks up steam. It was a little bit painful to give up the monthly Patreon funds, but I still feel quite good about the decision from a moral standpoint. I’m looking forward to seeing if this model can actually become a thing. From the sound of this, the idea is picking up some steam. The token giveaway mentioned in that article is over, but they say there will be another soon, so watch for it.
