Brave Launches New Swag Store Powered by Origin
Brave unveils new Brave Swag Store, the official source for Brave and Basic Attention Token-branded merchandise. Powered by Origin Protocol’s new decentralized e-commerce platform, Dshop.
San Francisco – March 24, 2020 – Today, we are pleased to announce the launch of the new Brave Swag Store, the official source for Brave and Basic Attention Token-branded merchandise. The Brave Swag Store, which carries a variety of branded products such as shirts, hoodies, hats, socks, joggers, jackets, children’s apparel, stickers, and accessories, is powered by Origin Protocol and uses its new, decentralized e-commerce platform, Dshop. You can visit the Brave Swag Store now, here.
Brave’s partnership with Origin on the new Swag Store represents a move away from old-world e-commerce solutions that track users and clash with Brave’s core privacy values, and a step forward in Brave’s progressive decentralization goals. With Origin, the new Brave Swag Store is hosted entirely on IPFS, a peer-to-peer distributed file system, and includes zero tracking cookies or scripts.
The new Brave Swag Store also features an integration with Printful, which brings worldwide drop-shipping to the millions of Brave fans around the globe. At launch, users can pay for items using their credit card. And in the future, we will also work to support payments in Ether or Ethereum-based tokens.
Many of the classic products that fans of Brave and Basic Attention Token have grown to love are back, alongside a brand new series of merchandise. Some of the items in the new, expanded product line are pictured below, and also include new stickers due to popular demand:
Other additions to the Brave Swag Store include embroidered packable jackets by Champion, joggers, phone cases, flip flops, and socks.
We hope you enjoy the new Brave Swag Store, and we look forward to growing our partnership with Origin well into the future!

Brave is a company where privacy isn’t just a feature; it’s a requirement. This is perhaps most obvious in the Brave Browser, where we block trackers, prevent fingerprinting, and include a privacy-preserving, opt-in and user-first ad-system, but Brave’s focus on privacy goes far beyond the browser.
