One supporter pointed us at this: -- if it's not too complicated to set up, may be worth trying.

  • Status changed from New to In Progress
  • Target version changed from Q2/2020 to Q3/2020

So I've been investigating this, and have created an account to do some testing. Here's how it works:

  • Users of the Brave web browser contribute "BAT" tokens by viewing ads and visiting sites
  • We can collect those BAT tokens, and convert them into proper currency
  • Obviously we DON'T want to serve any ads on our site
  • However, we can still collect BAT: Brave users can send us a one-off "tip", or include us in an automatic contribution, based on how much time they spend browsing sites

Regarding the last point, we should consider enabling other sites too. The main LO website is well-visited, but people spend long visits on the blog and wiki.

Florian: Am I OK to enable Brave rewards for the main LO site (NOT adverts, just for tips from Brave users), or is there anything else you want to know?
