@BryanLunduke@mastodon.rocks @sil It's a token with utility, no one controls. See https://stats.brave.com/dashboard#daily_publishers -- the big light blue slice is the user growth pool, 300M tokens, to be given as initial grants to users adopting the model.
The dark grey (0x67fa...) slice is the BAT development pool 180-day lockup smart contract address.
Remonetizing users was my number one motivation for doing a token. I've studied alt-money theories for years; was inspired by Social Credit.
