Well it seems that the time is here! Just a few minutes ago my Brave iOS browser (regular one not the Beta) informed new that I had BAT to claim!
My phone was accurate when payments went out on the 5th so I was really unsure of what to expect. What I ended up getting was really really exciting as I received 0.75 BAT which was actually a little over 30% of my pending amount. Doing the math I must have had 2.45 BAT pending as I now have 1.4 BAT pending.
If this turns out to be roughly the percentage one could expect I would not be upset as this is in my eyes a bonus. I know it was the Brave team that is responsible for the big however they could have chosen to do nothing. While 30% of the two amounts I have pending (7.720 and 12.335 between my two computers) would not be high payouts it would be decent. The first computer (using the ~30% I received from my phone) would payout 2.316 and my other one 3.7005. While low individually, together it’s 6.0165. That amount would be roughly what that computer would produce a month prior to the pandemic since it does not travel to work or school with me.
I would assume though my two laptops would get paid out more due only seeing a handful of ads a day if I’m lucky. I hope the percentage I received on my phone is on the low end of the range. On my phone so far this month I have received a ton more notifications than I have on my computers. We will see shortly though!
I am hopeful that over night tonight my computers get their BAT payouts and I wake up to more BAT in my Uphold wallet! Only than I can really figure out how they decided to figure out how much BAT each user would get. If and when that happens I will be sure to let you know!
My hope is that they are able to make most people happy but this is a long shot. People tend to get upset and outraged over what they feel they are owed when this payout is only one they are doing to show good faith.
