The Bitcoin Enabled Browser
« on: March 09, 2016, 11:50:39 AM »
I'm not sure how many here have seen this yet, but a company called Brave is intending on integrating bitcoin payments directly into the browser so that users can avoid on-page advertising in favor of sending a small sum of bitcoin to the website.

You can take a look at what exactly Brave is trying to do on their company homepage.

I have signed up for the beta release and have messed around with it for only a short while. Although it is clear the project is in its early stages, something like integrating bitcoin micropayments for less "in-your-face" advertising could have huge implications for the way websites monetize their content today.

Thank you for sharing this. It would seem Brave is trying to take an early lead on the demonitization of display advertising.

I'm sure that advertising on the web will continue to be a huge industry, but something like bitcoin micropayments (as you said), could change the landscape of content creation and how online work is monetized.

I'll be watching this closely.
