@sil The token has utility on the platform we've been building for opt-in automicrodonations and opt-in private/anonymous ads that share revenue with users who choose to opt in (I'll stop writing "opt in" now ;-).

Brave laptop/desktop has opt-in bitcoin based system but fees too high, no user grant.
