A coin that gets created as a result of human time spent on browsing would be great. Worth taking a look at the Basic Attention Token, which requires browser support, but does essentially this.

Basic Attention Token ($BAT) is probably the only token with a plausible market and platform right now. Brave is doing fantastic work

Most of today’s Internet is built on an economic model (advertising) that is inimical to the rights and the mental resources of the users, and that exerts a corrosive influence on our society’s economy and our political discourse. BAT is an audacious attempt to disrupt that entire economic basis and replace it with something better.

The power of @brave's basic attention token is it incentivizes users to disable ad-blocking & consent to advertising

The Basic Attention Token puts a dollar value, however imprecise, on a unit of your attention.

I just had a :wow: product moment in crypto (this is rare). Finally got around to downloading the @brave browser -- not having ads is a bit surreal. I'm excited to see @AttentionToken rolled out broadly.

If we nail the "microtransaction" part that alone will give users freedom to transfer value instantly and also freedom to control their data (via Basic attention token). I'd be sold instantly.

The free market will let $BAT fail as a token, that's what will likely happen.

This industry is entirely morally bankrupt. We have to call a spade a spade. $BAT is one of the most obvious ponzi schemes I've ever seen. They raised 36M$ from investors, they claim it is donations, yet the "donation receipts" are traded.

BAT doesn’t need a blockchain at all, they’re entirely centralised and could be custodial of it.

I trust Google more than I trust the company behind "Basic Attention Token"
