If you're an American you're breaking the terms and conditions of the contract by transferring ETH in order to get BAT, but you'll end up selling your BAT for a profit in a few weeks/months anyway, plus nobody is going to track this shit. Enjoy your profits.

Not legal advice.

I was pretty high on this given the high profile investors, but why does a web browser need a crypto currency? Why couldn't this just be done with ETH via a plug in to Safari, Chrome, etc.? And don't the advertisers and middle men--who have a fuck load of money--have every incentive to try to kill this thing in its sleep? Why will they fail? This seems to me to be adding blockchain somewhere it wasn't really needed in the first place.

Advertisers want a better way to pay for ads and to track how successful their advertising is. BAT accomplishes that. Middlemen won't like it, but advertisers hate middlemen since they're leeches. BAT devs have stated that they'll develop addons for non-Brave browsers.

Do advertisers really have the ability to manage this shit themselves? These "middlemen" add value by collecting lots of info and slicing/dicing it for advertisers to guide them to optimal ad buys. If you get rid of them, won't advertisers have to do all this analysis in-house, and won't that cost a lot?

There's a big problem with online advertising. A lack of transparency and even fraud. See http://www.cnbc.com/2017/05/18/programmatic-ad-buying-grossly-flawed-ana.html

Companies are looking for transparency and some advertisers are offering it. See https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-rise-of-transparent-digital-ad-buying-1494237600

https://www.wsj.com/articles/havas-launches-platform-to-track-every-penny-of-digital-ad-buys-1495522836

BAT would be the first to offer what companies are looking for, but based on smart contracts and the blockchain. It's also the first to deal with the problem of ad blockers head on.

Fair enough. I just think the market for this shit is much smaller than the ETH market, and I'm not sure I understand why there needs to be a different currency for this when ETH and software could probably do the same thing. Why not just make a browser plugin that runs smart contracts on ETH? That will be a much more liquid market eventually.

pretty excited about this between the team & that it solves a real problem with currently no other solutions

I've been telling people about Internet advertising micropayments as a use case for crypto since 2011
