History:

Brave was first conceptualized in May 2015 by Brendan Eich (creator of Javascript) and Brian Bondy, who sought to disrupt the digital advertising industry by creating a platform that better protects user data while rewarding content creators and consumers for their participation on the web browser. The browser eventually launched in January 2016 with a built-in ad blocker and the ability to keep user data private.

The founders originally planned for bitcoin to be the native asset of the Brave web browser but concerns over scalability issues led the team to create their own token to be used on the browser. In May 2017, the Basic Attention Token (BAT) was released, raising more than $35 million to pay for further developments of the Brave web browser and BAT. Today, anyone using the Brave browser can be rewarded in BAT.
