Brave has recently added a tip button to Reddit, which allows Brave users to tip BAT directly from their own wallet onto another users Brave wallet. But Reddit users can only receive tips if they have verified their Reddit accounts on the Brave creators platform. This guide will show you how to connect Reddit to Brave and it takes only a few minutes.
What is Brave Creators
Brave Creators is a tool that allows content creators to receive BAT contributions from their audience. Currently Brave Creators has been added for the following content channels:
- Youtube channels
- Twitch channels
How to contribute to creators
If you are using the Brave browser you can contribute BAT to your favorite creators through Brave Rewards. You can set up automatic contributions that will payout to the sites/channels you have visited the most at the end of every month. It’s also possible to make direct contributions to a creator by going to the Brave Rewards tab next to the search bar in the top of your browser. From there you can see if the channel is a verified creator and send a tip of whatever size you want.

1. Become a creator
The first step is to go to the Brave Rewards website and create an account with your email.
