You Can Now Support Me Via Brave Payments

As part of my ongoing mission to free myself from traditional banking and payment processing sites, both MattForney.com and my YouTube channel are now verified on Brave Payments, Brave’s system for allowing readers and fans to automatically reward the creators whose content they consume the most.

If you’re not familiar with Brave, it’s a new web browser created by Brendan Eich, the former Mozilla co-founder and CEO who was forced to resign in 2014 after he was attacked by leftists for supporting California’s anti-gay marriage Proposition 8. Brave is not only faster than other web browsers such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, it is designed to protect users’ privacy, with built-in technology that blocks ads and other tracking scripts. I’ve been using Brave for over a year and I love it.

To compensate content creators for lost ad revenue, the Brave Payments system allows Brave users to financially support their favorite websites and content creators by automatically donating BAT (Basic Attention Tokens) every month. BAT is an Ethereum-based cryptocurrency that is rapidly gaining value (you can track the price of BAT here), and Brave’s auto-tracking system allows you to automatically send me BAT based on how much time you spend on my website or YouTube channel, though it’s also possible to override the system and make manual changes.

To learn more about how you can get Brave, enable Brave Payments, and fund your wallet so you can start sending me BAT, click here. You can find out other ways you can support me by clicking here. I appreciate your financial support and I hope to continue producing hard-hitting journalism and commentary in the future with your help.
