What is Basic Attention?

. The Basic Attention Token (BAT) is an open-source, decentralized ad exchange platform built on the Ethereum platform. It held an initial coin offering on May 31, 2017, raising approximately $35M USD in less than 30 seconds. The BAT token is designed to correctly value and price user attention within the platform, and comprises various components, including attention measurement systems, analytics dashboards and machine learning algorithms. Ad targeting is performed wholly on-device, removing the need for third-party tracking. The project is led by Brendan Eich, the creator of JavaScript and the legendary co-founder of Mozilla, and other noteworthy team members include Brian Bondy, lead developer and co-founder of Brave, and Scott Locklin, senior engineer, and co-founder of Kerf Software.
