The concept of the VRA token is very similar to the Basic Attention Token (BAT). from the Brave web browser, however, the company’s CEO, RJ Mark Hain told Cointelegraph that VRA has some big advantages about its most famous competitor: uses agnostic technology (This means that software developers They show no preference for a particular technology. For each solution, developers are free to use the technology that is most suitable for them. 100% of sales go to the content creator.

Hain commented:

“The publisher has to decide whether to accept the use of BAT to monetize these rewards or not. What we do is completely different. We have nothing to do with a web browser. For example, if you work for a large organization like Bloomberg, Bloomberg has a video player that works with Brightcove. […] And Bloomberg wants a reward, whether in cryptocurrency or anything else. They take our SDK, it takes about half an hour to install, and then they themselves control the monetization of everything that happens in this video player and ads. “

According to Hain Verasity tries to take advantage of the video game boom triggered by COVID-19. In the future, however, they can also expand to other games such as chess and even to popular sports such as football and basketball.
