Re: This has been tried before
Regarding your last comments, anti-fraud methods are in place.
> Users are required to complete a KYC (know your customer) process in order to withdraw BAT from the local browser.
> Measuring user attention will be occurring within the platform, as opposed to a network-requested measurement event.
> The BAT team are setting frequency caps on how many BAT Ads a user will be served daily, going for quality over quantity and a more progressive ad experience.
> Only the user with the aid of BAT-enabled apps mediates between advertisers and publishers, so third-party invalid traffic and other fraud detection bypassed by bots will be excluded from the start.
The BAT team are in the process of documenting ad requirements, flow and attention metrics, which will be available for public review and comment soon.
