Answers 👇 ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/geeksiddhant/status/1490398554124595200)) - 1. In April 2021, Apple enabled iPhone users to choose which apps are allowed to track their behaviour across other apps. As a result, the vast majority of users opted out which Meta CFO David Wehner said is hurting Facebook's ad revenue. ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/geeksiddhant/status/1490399730991792128)) - 2. Brave Rewards is built on the Basic Attention Token (BAT) and is a new way to value attention, connecting users, content creators, and advertisers. Users are rewarded in BAT with 70% of the ad revenue share of the privacy-preserving ads they opt into viewing.

The 3.1.1 rule prevents apps from giving a tip to a person unless what's provided is purchased through in-app purchases.

Brave's developers say that this guideline is aimed at preventing apps from asking users to give 5-star ratings in return for points and that Apple has likened the opt-in viewing of Brave Ads as tasks for cash.

Web3 is in direct competition with Google & Apple. We should expect continued censorship on MetaMask, Coinbase, & other dapp browsers. ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FK75NYjagAATr2L.jpg) ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/geeksiddhant/status/1490402699401400320)) - The capitalist world economy takes the form of an iceberg. The most studied part which appears above the surface is supported by a huge underlying structure that is out of sight. Unlike the iceberg, the world economy is a dynamic system based on flows of value from the underside ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/geeksiddhant/status/1490407081677291520)) - toward the top. These include drains of surplus (expropriated value) that take two forms: visible monetarized flows of bright value and hidden un(der)costed flows that carry dark value (the unrecorded value of cheap labour, labour reproduction and ecological externalities).
