But smart contracts
can't access real world data such as
data feeds, APIs or banking
systems due to blockchain's consensus technologies.
The way this problem is
traditionally solved is through the use of blockchain
middleware called an oracle.
Oracle's are defined as an agent that finds and
verifies real world data and
submits this information to a blockchain to be used in

services. Any smart contract using such a service
has a single point of

slowing down the process and bringing in big
levels of trust.

an innovative solution,

into an opaque and inefficient marketplace.

Brave is implementing this in stages. Our
first stage is already in the Brave browser which
blocks ads and trackers but also have a ledger system
for rewarding sites based on user attention.
The second phase
is when we try to move towards a
decentralized ad exchange and that must involve
a new kind of currency for user attention, and that's the
Basic Attention Token.
The token is derived
from and therefore denominates user attention. Attention
is really just focused mental engagement on an

is looking at.
The browser can anonymously
and privately monitor your attention as you
view pages in tabs and it can do this in a way that
is highly accurate and highly private.

and malvertising problems on the current ecosystem.
Publishers will receive tokens when are viewed,
users also get a share for their attention if they choose to receive ads.
From that share they can then donate back to publishers
they wish to support.
We also see publishers
being paid in tokens able to use those tokens to
award users to promote their content.
And if they

Digital gold standard
What if I told you there was a new digital
coin that married the best aspects of current
cryptocoins with the safety and stability of gold,

to an asset that has real, stable and
historical value like gold.
What if that gold digital

With the Digix

You can redeem

criminals or hackers to exploit.
