Civic’s Blockchain to Be Used for Verifying Publishers in Brave Browser


Brave, an innovative privacy-focused internet browser, will be collaborating with the global digital identity ledger Civic to integrate their identity verification services into the Basic Attention Token (BAT) of Brave.

Brave to begin using Civic’s blockchain

The Civic and Brave collaboration was announced at the Consumer Identity World Seattle on September 21.

The collaboration will see Civic provide its identity verification services to verified publishers on the Brave platform.

When the integration is complete, publishers using the Brave platform will be able to use Civic identity verification and other Know Your Customer (KYC) services to securely collect the Basic Attention Tokens (BATs) earned via the Brave browser.

Civic and Brave are privacy-focused, offering services which help to protect the identities and personal information of users on their respective platforms.

In a recent Gartner report which profiles 4 enterprise architecture and innovative leaders of technology, Civic and Brave were both named as “Cool Vendors in Blockchain Technology”.

About Civic

Civic is a blockchain project which focuses majorly on providing identity-verification technology for consumers to authorize the use of their identities in real time.

Civic recently launched its “Civic Libre”, a reusable KYC incentive campaign which allows individuals with legitimate businesses to benefit from cost-free identity verification services until the end of 2018.

Civic raised about $33 million from its token sale in June, when it launched the Civic token that users of its platform use to provide and receive identity-verification-related services.

The Brave software

Brave leverages the blockchain technology to provide a privacy-focused browser and a digital advertising platform, for online publishers and advertisers.

Users of the Brave software enjoy a better, less congested, faster web experience, publishers on the platform enjoy increased revenue share, and advertisers receive better conversion.

Brave allows its users to anonymously donate BAT tokens for contents through Brave’s browser, which publishers and advertisers then receive in their Ethereum wallet.

The Brave software was designed by Brendan Eich, the creator of JavaScript and co-founder of Mozilla, and Brian Bondy, formerly of Khan Academy and Mozilla.

Brave to use Civic’s KYC

Leveraging the Reusable KYC of Civic, Brave publishers can verify their identities on the Brave platform while maintaining a great level of privacy.

Brave announced in its recent press release that more than 21,000 publishers have signed on for the Brave Program, these publishers can now use their mobile devices or similar platforms to collect BAT payments with their Ethereum wallets.

According to Vinny Linghamto, the co-founder and CEO of Civic, Brave has been working to fight the growing privacy challenges on the internet. He explained:

“As Brave is experiencing exponential publisher and user growth, implementing Civic will enable more people to safely and securely utilize the Brave platform while establishing and sustaining trust between publishers and users. We’re thrilled to partner with Brave and bring our trusted identity verification services to help build a better browser with the benefits of blockchain technology.”

With Civic’s technology, Brave publishers will have the option to use the Civic Reusable KYC to verify identity and ensure authenticity with the benefit of convenient, secure, and private identity verification through the Civic app.
