BF should sign up as Brave "verified publisher"

More info here.

I recently switched to Brave as my browser, to try to limit my Google Inc footprint. Brave has their own ecosystem of less-intrusive/more-privacy-respecting advertising, and it includes revenue-sharing. Users I think can cash out their revenue-share, but also they can 'tip' content creators they like if they're in the Brave network.

In a few weeks, I've earned a revenue share of less than 2.0 BAT (Brave Attention Tokens, which I think means less than $2), but I'd be happy to tip to BF if I could, and if lots of BF users did that, it could become a significant revenue stream

Note also Brave has a lot of built-in adblocking, if tons of BF users switched to Brave (or other privacy-browsers that are growing in popularity), I don't know if all the blocked ads means that BF would lose revenue. Do ads know they've been blocked? Or do advertisers still pay for them?

Note also Brave has a system whereby it measures the amount of time/attention users spend on various websites, and users can 'auto-contribute' BAT revenue based on that time.

I just claimed my first monthly award of 1.75 BAT (a little over $2), and was able to 'tip' 1 BAT to duckduckgo.com. If BF joins the Brave ecosystem, I'll tip to BF (plus auto-contributions based on 'attention')

I just discovered another website besides DuckDuckGo which is 'Brave Verified': Wikipedia. So now my BAT tips have two places to go (but I would still rather tip BF -- and more significantly, evangelize for others to switch to Brave and tip BAT to BF)

I just discovered another Brave Verified website: archive.org. So now I have 3 places I can redirect my BAT tips to. Would still like to tip to BF...

Update: one of my favorite youtube educational creators (3Blue1Brown) is Brave-Verified, so that's where all my BAT tips will be going for now. (Again, this is not about me and my piddly tips, it's about the possibility of drumming up a meaningful revenue stream from a few hundred? thousand? BF users)
