The Brave browser added 1.5 million active users per month (MAU) in April and May, with a total active user base of 15.4 million.
According to an update shared by the privacy-oriented browser, it already has a total of 5.3 million active users daily, after exceeding the level of 5 million DAU in May. For the Brave update, there were 2 million people using their browser daily a year ago, which shows significant growth.
Brave allows users to sign in to see ads and be rewarded with a Basic Attention Token (BAT) to see them while surfing the web. Brave ads, the company adds, have attracted 1,530 campaigns since launching last year, showing a 255% increase from the 400 campaigns reported in October 2019.
Users are rewarded in BAT for seeing sponsored images when they open a new browser tab. Since they were launched in February 2020, 25 campaigns using them have been launched. Several high-profile companies, including Verizon, Newegg, Chipotle and PayPal / Honey, have run ads for users using the Brave browser.
In their update, Brave claims that their advertising campaigns are already supported in 183 countries and have a CTR (clickthrough rate) of 9%, well above the average level of 2% for the advertising industry. According to some coins, even CTRs have reached 15%. Brave’s Ads Grant program is reported to provide additional information and support to non-profit organizations, including the Hahn Academy, Save the Child and UNICEF France.
The creators who have been verified by Brave to receive BAT awards with their users are also constantly growing. There are now over 700,000 websites, GitHub contributors, YouTube channels, Twitter users, live Twitter streaming and even more verified BAT awards.
