Basic Attention Token (BAT) founder, Brendan Eich, has been responding to doubters and has even gone as far as placing a public bet with user @viaj3ro on Twitter.
It appears Eich is rather bullish on BAT which is currently priced at $.68 USD. He believes that in a years time BAT will reach 15k satoshis or approximately $3 USD.
Twitter user @viaj3ro has agreed and what Eich meant to be a friendly bet has now heightened its stakes to 1 BTC ($11,597 currently).
Many are pleased to see the founder of the Basic Attention Token (BAT), a blockchain based solution for digital advertisers and content creators, is confident of the future performance of BAT. If Eich’s prediction is correct, an investment into BAT today would yield 3-4x returns. That may seem a bit conservative on crypto standards, but BAT has been lauded as a legitimate project with their working Brave platform and industry long term experienced team. The bet has been archived forever on internet history, it will be interesting to see who will be coughing up 1 BTC.
What does BAT stand for and what is it?
Basic Attention Token. The BAT, a token based on the Ethereum technology, is a
unit of exhange in a new Blockchain based digital advertising system. User attention is
anonymously monitored in the Brave browser and publishers are rewarded accordingly
with BATs. Users also get a share of BATs for participating.
