The digital currency market seems to be wounded and in bad condition, as exhibited by recent evaluations. A few of the altcoins, despite the slump that this cryptocurrency is going through, have been reported to show spikes over the last week. Among these altcoins is the Basic Attention Token or BAT.

Peaking at a record high value since the summer of 2018, the BAT altcoin was being traded at $0.3618. Two days later, the altcoin reported an increase in price greater than six percent, at $0.3947
A market cap of four hundred and ninety-three million dollars ($493,000,000) was reported by BAT along with a trading volume of fifty-seven million dollars ($57,000,000).

Cryptocurrency enthusiasts analyzed the cause of this rise in prices as the launch of ads during April, on the web browser known as Brave Browser.
