A Reddit user shares a post announcing that Brave has reached 150,000 verified publishers just 5 weeks after passing 100,000 verified publishers. The user links to batgrowth.com, which supposedly tracks the number of verified publishers on Brave. The website splits publishers into 3 categories: YouTube, Twitch, and website.
Brave publishers are YouTubers, Twitch streamers, or website owners that have registered with the Brave Rewards program. Brave browser users are then able to donate to these publishers and can even choose an auto-donate function that splits the donation based on time spent on each website, as logged by the Brave browser. The verified publisher can then collect their donations through Brave.
