So which alts have dropped the most over the last year or two? And more importantly which do people think are dead, and which do people think will soar back to/beyond ATHs? I reckon UNI is a good bet, it's down about 85% from ATH and is one of the most useful tokens around. I'm honestly surprised it's performed so poorly since it's peak. Similarly I am hopeful for BAT as I love Brave and again its a good working product, also down about 85%, but I don't think the token has the same value. ENJ, on the other hand, is down 92%, at one point over 95% down, and I don't see it reaching those highs again. Could be good for a few pumps during the next bull run when a few people inevitably try to make NFTs a thing again, but I think the novelty has worn off. Other coins that have suffered to watch/avoid?

- no they have not stopped, otherwise you could withdraw your BAT without using Gemini. If you don’t think Gemini isn’t paying for this I dunno what to tell you. - no, the addons are not added bloat, specifically, because you get to pick and choose what you want to install. Bloat is when something comes with a lot of useless functionality. If your computer comes pre installed with candy crush or trial versions of stuff, that is bloatware. Similarly, BAT and the Tor feature in Brave are bloat. Even if you disable it, they are still there. Anyways, we acknowledge that Firefox can do the good things Brave does but without the bloatware. So why not just use Firefox and skip the crap that Brave comes built in with? - Fingerprinting - Most fingerprinting these days is done with the use of cookies which no browser I know of blocks out of the box as it would break a lot of sites.

Mentions:#BAT

> The invasion of privacy is because when I access a particular URL, I expect to be accessing that URL, not that URL + a referral tag. It was Binance first right? Now it’s Gemini. They haven’t even stopped, they are just more brazen with it now. Why do you insist on pushing a browser that directly makes its money from advertising to its users and pushing them to sign up for third party services that require significant amounts of personal info, to use core functionality? That’s a conflict of interest. What if one day FTX v2 or something shadier offered more money for this? After all, it’s not done out of technical requirement, so there’s no reason why they wouldn’t just go for the highest bidder. yeah they have stopped. I installed a fresh copy today and Binance didn't have a referral url added >- The BAT **donate buttons** injected on webpages are enabled even if you never opt into BAT, and I know this for a fact because it was one of the main reasons I gave up on it. If this has changed, it was changed within the last couple months at most I can't say I ever noticed this tipping buttons before as I mostly use reddit on my mobile with the app (which they don't appear in). I confirmed they do not appear on a fresh install on desktop with BAT rewards turned off. I turned it on, they were there and I could turn them off on the tipping settings >- There are these really cool things called adblock plugins like uBlock Origin and Adnauseam that can block ads as well but without the sketchy history and added bloat. Aren't the add-ons added bloat? it already has it builtin to brave and is on by default. I don't have to install an extra addin. >- If Tor were truly used only to hide IP addresses then at the very least hidden services would be blocked on it by default, but they are not, the feature is clearly marked as Tor, and the average user not knowing better will use it as such. Again, there’s a reason why this is not easy to do out of the box with the regular Tor Project releases. I agree they probably should have called it something else. They aren't hiding the fact that it's not the same as tor, but I guess lots of people wouldn't know read that >Give me a single good thing that Brave does that I can’t do with Firefox or any Chromium browser + uBlock Origin/Adnauseam. I already listed out a bunch of negatives. * adblock installed and on by default - no add on required. Firefox and many chromium browsers require third party add-ons *anti tracking installed and on by default - Firefox does this, but many chromium browsers don't have it enabled or you can't enable it *brave syncing is encrypted client side - Firefox is but many chromium browsers aren't *brave randomizes your fingerprint data - Firefox and many other chromium browsers use a set one Brave has more features you can turn on to enhance your experience but with less privacy. This doesnt make brave less private out of the box. These go into more depth with the privacy features https://brave.com/shields/ https://brave.com/privacy-features/#advanced-expanded-accordion

BAT *rewards* are off by default, yes, but the BAT buttons on Reddit/Github/etc are on by default, even if you never opt into BAT rewards, unless it was changed very recently. Half of those things are done by a standard adblock plugin or honestly even just built in features on most browsers, except unlike Brave, most standard Adblock plugins don’t also want to show you their own ads or otherwise modify webpages at all, default or not. Some are entirely false - “policies and practices” like their practices of requiring the use of a particular CEX to use their rewards feature or their history of embedding referral links are not privacy-friendly, and again, building in Tor is at best misguided and at worst an active honeypot. So again, just call it what it is. You’re getting paid to look at ads, like Bing Rewards or similar.

Gemini is a piece of sh**. I made the mistake to send my BAT to there in order to withdraw and to 'unlock' the withdraws they ask you to send a wire transfer from your back account, which costs $30 fee. To hell with them.

Mentions:#BAT

Yeah thats part of the BAT tipping settings. Turn that off and it will disappear Its not a default setting out of the box . It only turns on when you enable BAT rewards and during the setup you have the option to turn tipping on or off. You can also do it afterwards

Mentions:#BAT

There goes my BAT.

Mentions:#BAT

- So you acknowledge they have a poor track record of privacy friendly actions. - A privacy browser doesn’t modify websites by default. When I tried it it doesn’t even persist disabling it across updates. - so what’s the point if you disable bat? isn’t that the entire point of brave? replace ads on sites with other ads that pay you instead of the website owner. if you aren’t using it’s main feature isn’t it just bloatware at that point? - Gemini is not optional if you wish to redeem your BAT which again is like… the whole point of using it - using Tor in a regular browser is a poor security practice that encourages people to be lazy and make mistakes, and there’s a really good reason why the Tor Project doesn’t make this easy to do out of the box. There’s no way to use Tor in Brave safely because of all the information that inevitably leaks. So this is at best useless bloatware but could easily become a honeypot. So tell me again where does it do anything that’s remotely privacy-friendly. Call it what it is, you’re getting paid a couple dollars to look at ads.

Mentions:#BAT

My BAT!!! No!!!

Yeah I agree with you. Brave is a really good browser even without BAT. I personally look at it like the BAT is just icing on the cake since at the end of the day its not like I get anything from using Chrome, Firefox, Edge, etc.

You can choose how many you see a day or turn it off entirely It's not a core component of Brave and you don't have to sign up with gemini if you don't want to, but you just won't get rewarded

Mentions:#BAT

I like the browser "OK" and the idea of BAT is nice, but not enough to go through KYC for another exchange. I don't know. Maybe I'll keep it for the tips only thing, but I feel like maybe I will just delete it and revisit later if they ever support a exchange I use. I don;t have enough "VBAT" to matter. Maybe some of us leaving will spur them to improve that part???? Dunno. It's not awesome enough to jump through the hoops right now though.

Websites are an investment and a business. Many free websites rely on ads, which Brave takes from them and makes their own money off them.
