Brave Referral Rate Changes
Updated: Mar 15, 2020
Thank you for using the Brave referral system. We have a pretty important change coming up and we wanted to give you advance notice.
The per user payout rate will be changing from $5 globally to variable rates depending upon the region of the user
Why are we doing this?
When we launched the referral program, the goal was to discover which areas would we see the most growth and to test the viability of the referral program as a whole. Our level of zoom was pretty wide (Planet Earth) and the rate was $5 per user, globally.Since then, we have launched our Ads program and we want to shift our level of zoom to more regional efforts, with a specific focus on the areas where we can deliver ads. This is a straightforward business decision.
When will this occur?
We wanted to give you as much advance notice as possible, especially for those of you who are promoting Brave via ads. Here is the planned timeline August- Initial message (this email) explaining the rate change and timeline
