Gemini Trading Widget Now Available to Brave Desktop Users
We are excited to announce that Gemini and Brave have partnered to make it easier for users to buy, sell, store, and earn crypto when using the Brave browser. This integration allows users of the Brave desktop browser (version 1.13) to engage with crypto via the new Gemini Trading Widget in a simple and secure manner.
Brave provides users with a better Internet experience by giving them back their privacy. The Brave browser blocks ads and trackers and other identifying software used by websites to monitor visitors. This provides a faster (3-6x) and more private Internet experience. Brave users can also earn Basic Attention Tokens (BAT) by opting in to view privacy-preserving Brave ads. Online creators can earn BAT from Brave users via Brave Rewards by publishing great content across a range of platforms including YouTube, Twitter, Vimeo, Github, Twitch, or their own website.
The Gemini Trading Widget is integrated in the Brave browser New Tab page.
Starting today, Brave desktop users can access the Gemini Trading Widget (the “Gemini card”) from the Brave browser New Tab page to seamlessly trade any crypto asset listed on the Gemini Exchange, as well as view their Gemini account balances and access their deposit addresses – all without ever leaving the Brave browser ecosystem.
Brave users can seamlessly trade any crypto asset listed on the Gemini Exchange, as well as view their Gemini account balances and access their deposit addresses.
In addition, Brave-verified content creators can custody their digital assets in a Gemini Creator Wallet. That means Brave creators can receive their BAT payments into their Gemini Creator Wallet, or in any other fiat or crypto asset supported on Gemini’s Exchange. Brave Creators who started using the Gemini Creator Wallet in July (when we announced the Gemini integration into the Brave Nightly version) will be paid shortly in early September. Gemini is a New York-based Trust company regulated by the New York State Department of Finance, and available in all U.S. states except Hawaii. For the first time, Brave Creators registered in New York can now benefit from the Gemini-Brave integration and utilize the Creator wallet to claim their BAT.
How to Use the Gemini Trading Widget
- From the Brave New Tab page, open the Gemini Trading Widget or select “Add Card” and choose Gemini if it’s not currently active.
- Then select “Connect to Gemini”. This will prompt you to sign in with your Gemini credentials or create an account if you don’t have one.
How to Link Your Gemini Creator Wallet
- From the Brave browser, register or login to your creator account at https://creators.brave.com/.
- Follow the prompts under “Wallet Services” to connect your Brave Creator account to Gemini. If you don’t have a Gemini account yet, the connection process will prompt you to create one.
You can learn more about the Gemini integration within the Brave browser here, and we’ll be sharing more announcements around our broader partnership soon.
