United States : Brave Software unveils bitcoin micropayments system's beta version.

A new company reinventing the browser as a user platform for speed, privacy, and micropayments, Brave Software, has introduced the beta version of Brave Payments the startup's bitcoin-based micropayments system.

Brendan Eich, President and CEO of Brave Software, said, "For the first time in the history of web browsers, people can now seamlessly reward the sites whose content they value and wish to support, while remaining untracked by anyone, including us at Brave Software, Inc."

Brave Payments allows users to send small payments to sites, at whatever aggregate support level they want.

Eich says that users shouldn't have to pay anything to avoid ads, but if a website depends on ad revenue, Brave Payments is a way to help these sites, privately and effectively, while blocking ads.
