How You Can Help Brendan Eich, VGB

Brendan Eich is the software genius who designed Java-script and Mozilla Firefox. He was forced out of his job as Chief Executive of Mozilla when Gaystapo fanatics working inside the corporation discovered that he had not supported same-sex marriage, but had actually donated to the campaign to save real marriage.

Since then Mr Eich has designed his own web browser named BRAVE, and launched it. By switching to BRAVE you can help Mr Eich and be part of the pushback against gay bullying. The browser works beautifully, and is designed to block unwanted advertisements and pop-ups automatically. As you would expect from such a world-class top designer, the browser is secure and has its own built-in search engine so there is no reason to rely on Google, and its Chrome browser, which are left-wing biased and queer-controlled. There is also a website where you can send feedback and ask questions.

It is nice to be able to report that the Brave Company, founded and owned by Mr Eich, has assets and turnover in millions of dollars (see below). Investment is rolling in.

It is being ignored by the queer-controlled mainstream media, so please circulate this news, get the information out there, and if you agree that it was shameful for a man to be bullied out of his job for supporting real marriage, then give Brave browser a try yourself. The more people who use it, the more revenue there is for the company and that means helping to build a fairer, better world.

Former Mozilla CEO raises $35M in under 30 seconds for his browser startup Brave

There’s been a whole lot of talk about initial coin offerings (ICO)company fundraising events based around the sale of cryptocurrencies, but not much in the way of action until yesterday. That’s when web browser maker Brave, founded by former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, raised $35 million from its ICO — and it did it in less than 30 seconds, too.

ICOs operate by selling investors cryptocurrency, which can be used to store value in many ways beyond a traditional share. For its sale, Brave created its own coin — The Basic Attention Token, or BAT — and sold one billion of them. That collection of BAT cost 156,250 ETH, which is just over $35 million. A further 500 million BAT is stored for user growth and “BAT development,” according to Brave, which is not planning another token sale in the future.

The ICO is the highest grossing to date, and Brave’s business itself is one of the more interesting to make use the blockchain. Eich, who created JavaScript but left Mozilla in 2014 in controversial circumstances, had raised $7 million from investors including Founders Fund for Brave. He believes the current internet advertising system is inherently broken, and his ambitious proposaluses the blockchain to make things more efficient for all parties, advertisers, publishers and users, too.

Kik, a messaging service popular with young people in North America, recently announced plans for its own ‘Kin’ coin which it will use as a virtual currency to pay for related goods and services, and that’s the same approach Brave has taken. It plans to use BAT the currency for its advertising system, which it claims can reduce ad fraud and increase efficiencies for publishers and advertisers. It is also assessing the potential for micropayments and buying digital goods with BAT in the future.

Brave’s pitch to consumers is faster loading times, tighter privacy controls and even the potential to earn money simply by reading content.

More immediately, it said it will use the proceeds of this ICO to develop its advertising platform.

One notable anecdote of the Brave ICO is how the process was dominated by a handful of individuals. Only around 130 people actually bought BAT, Coindesk noted, with one buyer scooping up $4.6 million of them (20,000 ETH worth). All in all, Coindesk reported that five buyers acquired half of the total haul, while the 20 biggest spenders bought two-thirds of the available coins.

That situation runs counter to the thesis that many in Ethereum hold, which is that token sales enable anyone to take ownership of the companies they use or follow. Of course larger, organized investors — including adventurous corporations or early moving VC firms — are a key component when a company sells tens of millions of dollars of coins, but ensuring that there is space for smaller parties is going to be an ever critical challenge as ICOs become more commonplace.

Aside from Kik, which hasn’t given a specific date, Asia-based payment firm Omise is gearing up to raise just under $20 million from a token sale this month as the phenomenon begins to find interest among more established (and venture-backed) tech companies.
