What this means for BAT price
This development is a great sign for the token. This is because it is doing what so many other top tokens have struggled to do in a short time since it was established. As it stands, more prominent brands would adopt the coin and it could stoke general adoption from all consumers and others supporting the companies.
The token has proven to be a force to reckon with and has survived despite the harsh crypto winter. It aims at improving the efficiency of advertising digitally while easing the process of exchanging tips between users, advertisers and publishers. It is built on the Ethereum blockchain.
Since it was established, there have been lots of meaningful partnerships to promote the goals of the token. Just last month, Tap Network was added to the list of partners. The network hopes to help users redeem their token on more than 250k brands including tech giants such as Uber and Apple.
Also, the token also got listed on Circle Invest and Coinbase.
