Basic Attention Token Now Accepting Deposits

2020-03-31 BAT+Brave-Blog

We are pleased to announce that today, April 24, 2020, at 9:30am ET, you will be able to deposit Basic Attention Token (BAT) into your Gemini account with trading to follow soon thereafter.

BAT is the sixth digital asset available for trading on the Gemini platform, joining bitcoin, ether, bitcoin cash, litecoin, and Zcash. We will be offering USD, BTC, and ETH trading pairs for BAT on both our continuous order book and our automated block trading system.

Basic Attention Token is the native currency token of the Brave Browser, which is built to provide a more efficient and effective mechanism for connecting and rewarding users, advertisers, and publishers.

Brave blocks unsolicited ads and tracking by default and rewards users with BAT payments when they opt-in to view ads. Users can then directly or indirectly contribute BAT to the sites they visit while enjoying a faster, more secure browsing experience, all of which is accomplished without revealing a user’s browsing history or preferences. Brave and BAT were created by Brendan Eich, who developed the Javascript programming language and also is a co-founder of Mozilla.

At Gemini we’re always looking to support products and services that enhance the crypto ecosystem.

Onward and Upward,

Team Gemini

Please Note: In order to deposit BAT you must first create a new Ethereum deposit address by logging into Gemini and going to the Digital Asset Transfers page. BAT deposits to existing Gemini Ethereum addresses are not supported.
