Today’s Brave browser release (v1.40) is expanding on the mission of making Brave Wallet a safe, easy-to-use onramp to Web3. It gives users easy access to new chains and decentralized apps (DApps), right in the browser, no extensions required.
With Brave's 1.39 desktop release, we're announcing our first steps towards full integration with the Solana ecosystem. By partnering with Solana, Brave enables users to explore Web3 with significantly lower transaction fees and faster processing times than the Ethereum network.
With the Brave Android app update rolling out today (v1.38), Brave users who opt into Brave Rewards on Android can connect a Gemini account to their browser's Brave Rewards to manage their Basic Attention Tokens (BAT).
Brave Wallet, the crypto wallet built into the Brave browser that enables users to store, manage, grow, and swap their crypto portfolio from a single wallet, is live on desktop and mobile! To celebrate, Brave is giving away almost half a million dollars in amazing crypto prizes.
Today, Brave is announcing several new features for Brave Talk, our privacy-preserving video conferencing product available directly in the Brave browser. This includes the Brave Talk extension for Google Calendar, which makes it easier than ever to schedule private calls with colleagues and friends via our desktop browser.
2021 was a significant year for the growth and development of Brave and BAT. Brave grew over 2x to 50.2 million monthly active users in 2021, with over 8 million users earning BAT through Brave Rewards, becoming the 11th most distributed token by on-chain holders according to etherscan.io.
