About Basic Attention Token
Digital Advertising is one of the least transparent industries in the world. The Basic Attention Token (BAT), is created by a blockchain-based company that wants to bring transparency to online advertising and disrupts the current "Middleman" culture of digital advertising.
In our day to day browsing, there are on average 70 different tracking solutions following your every move online, reducing the battery life of your device, slowing down page load, and compromising your data. All of these adverse side effects of digital advertising are among the problems that the team behind BAT aims to tackle by pursuing a decentralized solution for the industry.
To achieve their goals, the founders have created a web browser that benefits all three sides of digital advertising: users, publishers, and advertisers. This browser named "Brave" measures and rewards users with BATs for their attention when surfing the web, i.e., their mental engagement with content. Meanwhile, publishers receive revenue for the attention users pay to their content. Last but not least, advertisers get the triple benefit of increased return on investment, protection against fraud, and increased targeting capabilities.
How to accept Basic Attention Token payments on your website?
CoinGate makes it easy to receive customer payments in most popular cryptocurrencies, including Basic Attention Token. To make it simple for merchants, all received payments are automatically settled to EUR/USD or to BTC, depending on your preference.
To integrate our payment gateway on your website, choose either:
- One of CoinGate ready-made integrations for e-commerce content management systems or web billing platforms (like WooCommerce, Magento, PrestaShop, OpenCart, WHMCS and similar)
- Developer API that can be configured for any website and different codebases (e.g. Ruby, PHP, Omnipay, Python, NodeJS...)
- Payment buttons for accepting donations or simple payments (for example, if you only sell one or several products)
To get started with accepting Basic Attention Token as well as Bitcoin, Litecoin and other coins, first, sign up with CoinGate. Then, create API credentials if you are planning to use our e-commerce plugins or the API; if not, go ahead and create your first payment button.
If you wish to keep all your received payments in cryptocurrency (i.e. to receive payouts in Bitcoin), then no verification is usually needed to use CoinGate. For Euro or U.S. Dollar settlements, you will have to pass our simple merchant verification procedure by uploading your business documents and director's ID.
