    Welcome to Status, yourgateway to the decentralized web.

    As we
    become more connected via technology, webecome part of a seemingly endlessnetwork of institutions and 3rd party services,claiming to make our lives easier.

    These institutions
    serve as a trusted middleman to help facilitateour transactions. While this maysound great, serious problemsexist.

    We now have a fragmented system of identities and
    passwords. We have placed far toomuch of our personal data in the hands of others and wehave given too much power to banks and legalsystems.

    Luckily, there is another way.

    Enter
    the decentralized web on the Ethereum public blockchain.The blockchain is a decentralizeddatabase that stores a registry of assets,smart contracts and transactions across aglobally connected peer to peer network.

    If
    used to its full potential, it will fundamentallychange our conception of how the internet,finance and law works. And it can completelyeliminate our reliance on trusted3rd parties.

    It's not an app. It's not a company.
    It's not owned by anyone rather it'san open system owned byeveryone.

    So how do we interact with the next
    generation of the internet? How do we ensure itremains decentralized?

    Introducing
    Status.

    Just as browsers provide a gateway
    to websites and institutions, Statusprovides a gateway to decentralized apps and services.More than an app, Status is a community,governed by its own users and givesaccess to a world free from controllinginterests and censorship. It works with a number ofdecentralized apps built on Ethereumto replace your wallet and bank, combining them with amessenger and browser.

    Simply put, Status
    is an open portal to the future web.

    Meet Justin, Justin has recently moved
    from London to LA. It's a sunny morning andJustin is ready to get his day started.

    He gets
    dressed, grabs his cell phone and hits the road,feeling empowered with the capabilities of Statusin his pocket.

    First stop is the local coffee
    shop. No wallet? No problem. Justin pays forhis coffee with Ether from his Statuswallet. And while waiting for his coffee,he checks his stock portfolio and sees gold is up big overnight. Time to cash out some of his holdings.

    Justin opens up Status and trades a portion of his Digix
    gold tokens for a more stable currency.Not content with his gold earnings, he heads back to Statusand starts scanning Ethlance for work. He's a graphicdesigner and looking for a freelance gig.

    Within seconds, he finds numerous companies
    in his field looking for people just likehim.

    He's in luck, he quickly finds a two week
    freelance gig for a local agency. They message back almostimmediately. He is perfect for the job,they just need some background information beforefinalizing the contract.

    Via uPort, Justin
    shares the requested credentials to prove hisidentity. And Justin has now paid for coffee, conquered themarkets, and landed a job all while usingStatus.

    He has done this freely without
    middlemen and on his own terms.

    Status
    makes all of this possible in a simple and seamlessway.

    Join Status now and become part of the
    decentralized web.
    Digital advertising
    I'mBrendanEich, I created Javascript, Netscape and then foundedthe Mozilla project and Firefox. And Iam now doing Brave, it's a new browser and anew system for properly valuing user attention.

    Brave software is introducing
    an innovative solution,blockchain based digital advertising.

    Online advertising was once simpler, it consisted
    of advertisers, publishers and users.

    Digital advertising has evolved
    into an opaque and inefficient marketplace.Publishers, advertisers and users are all being conned bythis system. It's hard to believe but we are paying to bebothered by ads, our mobile phone billis going toward all the bandwidth spent on ads andtrackers. Up to $23 a month according to the New York Times.

    Popular
    media sites we've seen have as manyas 70 trackers calling out using your battery, slowing down thepage load and increasing data costs.

    Users are now trying to protect themselves with ad blocking
    which is on over 600,000,000 phones and desktops and rising.

    So we
    realized something needed to be done. Wethink the solution must involve a decentralizeddigital ad exchange based on theblockchain.

    Brave is implementing this in stages. Our
    first stage is already in the Brave browser whichblocks ads and trackers but also have a ledger systemfor rewarding sites based on user attention.

    The second phase
    is when we try to move towards adecentralized ad exchange and that must involvea new kind of currency for user attention, and that's theBasic Attention Token.

    The token is derived
    from and therefore denominates user attention. Attentionis really just focused mental engagement on anadvertisement, great content, on whatever the useris looking at.

    The browser can anonymously
    and privately monitor your attention as youview pages in tabs and it can do this in a way thatis highly accurate and highly private.

    We
    think this is essential to avoiding fraudand 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 publishersthey wish to support.

    We also see publishers
    being paid in tokens able to use those tokens toaward users to promote their content.

    And if they
    like, they can chargefor premium content that is paid in tokens.

    BAT should
    become a new standard that is used in theentire advertising ecosystem. We believe that thiscombination of blockchain, smart contractbrowser analytics and accountable open sourcecode and auditability is the future of advertisingon the internet.
