The Breitmanns claim that, despite temporary difficulties, the development of the project continues. At the same time, the conflict situation may be resolved in the near future.

They also advised investors who invested $ 232 million in their project, not to panic and "rely on them."

Kathleen Breitman still noted the difficulties of the situation.

I mean, it stinks. It stinks. We're both really embarrassed about the situation. But we trust the process that we put in place, and I think it will be resolved in due course.

The conflict arose between Arthur and Keitlin Breitman, who owns the project code, and Johann Giewers, president of the fund that controls the funds raised during the ICO.

The Breitmanns accused Gavers of acting in their own interests, while Gevers himself argues that the organizers have entered into a criminal conspiracy and are trying to eliminate it. This situation led to significant drop of Tezos price - up to 75% in few hours.

It worth reminding that at the beginning of the week due to this conflict Tezos became the object of an official investigation initiated by a number of investors in the ICO of this project.

Brave Browser Start Paying BAT For Ads Viewing

Brave browser ICO was launched in 2017 by the creator of the JavaScript programming language and ex-Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich; it raised $35M in 30 seconds

Users of the new Brave browser desktop version will finally be able to participate in the Brave Ads program.

Brave is developed by the creator of the JavaScript programming language and ex-Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich and is positioned as something more than a “ad-blocking browser”. The implementation of this idea is based on Brave Ads.

Users who decide to take part in the program will be able to receive up to 70% of the profits generated by the advertisements shown to them, TechCrunch reports with reference to the company's statement. Awards will be paid in the form of own tokens of the Basic Attention Tokens project (BAT), which users, in turn, will be able to share with the creators of the content they like on the network.

By default, donations to BAT will be transferred to owners of sites that a user visits most often, however, developers plan to realize the possibility of exchanging tokens for awards, such as vouchers for restaurant visits or hotel accommodations. Also, earned advertising tokens can be exchanged for other cryptocurrencies and Fiat through exchanges. If desired, users can continue to use Brave without receiving a BAT.

A lot of users don’t want to cash out [when they receive BAT]. It’s not a huge amount of value for most people, so they may prefer to just use it to give back. And that’s the real idea: A browser with the user steering it is replacing the ad tech complex.

BAT can only be used to reward publishers. Soon with their help, users will be able to buy additional content and, possibly, some products. The ability to withdraw tokens will be realized after the introduction of the user identification system.
