Brave adds 19 new DApps to its Wallet Partner program, which now features over 60 participants
Brave’s native crypto wallet now features integrations from ACryptoS, BadgerDAO, Compound, Cronos ID, DappRadar, Jungle Cats, Ferro, Matcha, Mean Protocol, Minted, Moonshine, Odos, Overtime, Rarible, SPACE ID, Synthetix, THORSwap, Tiny World, and VVS Finance.
We’re thrilled to announce the latest round of partners that joined Brave’s Wallet Partner program this month. Since its June debut, the Wallet Partner program has onboarded 62 DApps, and promoted their use among Brave Wallet users through Brave Ads and other Brave-owned properties. In addition to our program partners, dozens more DApps are following suit by integrating Brave Wallet outside the program, helping to organically spread the word about Brave’s built-in secure multi-chain wallet.
To learn more about our previous Wallet Partners, check out past announcements:
This month’s newest additions feature:
ACryptoS is a multi-chain yield optimizer whose core offering is auto-compounding Single-Token Vaults, which use unique strategies to increase DeFi yield without the risk of impermanent loss. The vaults first launched on BNB Chain, but are now deployed across Avalanche, Fantom, Gnosis, Cronos, and more. Their mission is to build a better, safer DeFi world where their users can sleep soundly while their deposits earn yield.
Badger is a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) focused on building the products and infrastructure necessary to accelerate the growth of Bitcoin in Decentralized Finance (DeFi) across multiple blockchains. It is an ecosystem where projects and people from all across DeFi can collaborate and build together. Shared ownership in the DAO incentivizes builders to have aligned objectives, while decentralized governance ensures that those incentives remain fair to all parties.
The Compound protocol is a decentralized and autonomous interest rate protocol on the Ethereum blockchain. The core use cases are borrowing assets and earning interest. Compound is one of the first DeFi protocols on Ethereum and currently holds ~$2.3 billion worth of liquidity in smart contracts. Compound III, its newest deployment, enables users to supply a supported collateral asset like WBTC and borrow USDC against it, in addition to earning interest if they supply USDC. Governance of the protocol is decentralized such that COMP token holders can propose or vote on code upgrades. Discord, X (formerly Twitter), and the comp.xyz forums are where the community publicly discusses protocol development.
Cronos ID is the identity and communication layer on top of Cronos, the first EVM-compatible chain built on Cosmos. The Cronos ID Domain Service enables users to associate a unique human-readable “.cro” domain with their crypto wallet address. In the coming weeks, the Cronos ID Notification Service and the Cronos ID Messaging Service will enable peer-to-peer and DApp-to-consumer communication using only wallet addresses. Cronos ID is incubated by Cronos Labs, the ecosystem accelerator of Cronos Chain.
DappRadar positions itself as the world’s DApp store at the heart of Web3. It tracks more than 12,000 DApps over 50 blockchains, providing reliable and accurate data for the users who want to discover and explore the world of NFTs, blockchain games, metaverse, and more.
“Brave Wallet’s integration to DappRadar is a powerful partnership of two pioneering companies in Web3. Users will be able to track digital assets in Brave Wallet while exploring the world of DApps on DappRadar. Privacy at its best, while discovering blockchain games, NFTs, DeFi, metaverses, and more,” said Patrick Barile, COO of DappRadar.
Ferro is the leading stable coin swapping venue on Cronos, the first EVM-compatible chain built on Cosmos in partnership with Crypto.com. Ferro has gained even more relevance during the recent bear market months as it works hard every day to optimize the returns that liquidity providers generate from more than $100 million in deposited DAI, USDC and USDT. Ferro differentiates with its clean, modern look and feel and its best-in-class yields.
Jungle Cats is an NFT project based on the Solana blockchain—a collection of Lions and Lionesses taking a journey through gamified rewards and on-chain breeding to mirror the life cycle of what they consider a real-life feline family. The Jungle Cats use their voice—$GROAR (SPL utility token)—to venture deep into the Jungle Safari and participate in the ecosystem.
Matcha is a decentralized exchange from 0x Labs, the team behind the 0x protocol. The DApp is designed to aggregate on-chain liquidity across the Ethereum and EVM ecosystem in order to offer its users maximal value on their trades. Max value means low fees, deep liquidity, and low slippage. Matcha transparently displays all costs and fees associated with trades, and doesn’t take any profits from quoted and final prices, should there be any savings when the trade settles.
Mean Protocol is a set of rules and interoperable smart contracts that help DApp developers facilitate everyday banking workflows and investment banking operations. One of the key components of Mean Protocol is Payment Streams, which provide the payment rails for developers to build real-time finance applications.
“Brave’s wallet integration is a pivotal stepping stone in making crypto assets mainstream. MeanFi’s integration with Brave brings our mission to onboard the next billion users to crypto a step closer to reality,” said Michel Triana, CEO and Co-founder of Mean Protocol.
Minted.network is a decentralized NFT platform native to Ethereum and Cronos. It aims to bring more tools for collection owners to design, curate, and offer utility to their communities with an intuitive and user-friendly interface. Minted’s key functions are its self-custodial trading platform, native NFT launchpad, multi-chain support, and its security-first infrastructure. The $MTD token on Cronos is used to reward users by sharing the revenue from platform fees and other utilities.
“Our vision for Minted is to become a ‘Digital Bazaar of Wonders’ for creators and new and experienced collectors alike,” said Matt Wan, Director of Brand & Business Partnerships at Minted.
Moonshine Labs is innovating the framework for the next tech revolution by offering a customizable Metaverse-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform. Directly connect to every partner and user across our platform, The Verse. Create your project’s paradise. Build your business. Escape the mundane. The Verse is a passion project for the entire team: from the Founder, Charles, dreaming of this world for the last 20 years, Co-founder Will innovating on emerging tech, and lead designer Chris, placing each item with love and care.
“The multi-chain Brave Wallet brings unparalleled security and browser-native support to over 200 crypto assets for our users and partners,” said Will Stone, Co-founder of Moonshine Labs.
Odos is a decentralized exchange aggregator on Ethereum, Arbitrum, and Polygon that allows users to swap between a variety of crypto assets via their unique order route planning. Their patented algorithm traverses a large universe of possible token swap combinations and non-linear paths, delivering greater savings to users. Odos offers the ability to swap between up to six assets in a single transaction and provides institutional APIs to partners who are interested in leveraging Odos’ Smart Order Routing in their applications.
“Supporting Brave Wallet greatly enhances the seamlessness of user interaction with Odos by providing a no-hassle pathway to getting started through the Brave browser,” said Matt Deible, Research & Product Lead at Odos.
Overtime is a fully decentralized sports positioning platform that allows users to trade seamlessly through an automated market for sports, which means there’s always a position to be taken on a fan’s favorite games. Born out of the Thales protocol, their mission is to gamify DeFi one step at a time and ultimately close the gap between traditional markets and new, decentralized, and autonomous sports markets.
“Supporting Brave Wallet on OVERTIME was an easy decision. As pioneers in Web3 sports markets we are happy to integrate with Brave and offer our product to its 55+ million users access to markets of the most popular leagues such as the English Premier League, National Football League, Bundesligua, Formula 1, and many more” said Red, Growth Lead at Overtime.
Rarible is a leading community-centric, aggregated marketplace for NFTs that also offers multi-chain trading for NFTs listed directly on the site. Launched in 2019 by Alexei Falin and Alex Salnikov, Rarible offers a platform to artists and collectors looking to create, collect, and trade digital collectibles from multiple chains. Since its inception, Rarible has grown rapidly and become one of the most well-known and highly ranked NFT projects in the market, backed by Venrock and CoinFund.
“Rarible is proud to be partnering with Brave to provide the best and safest user experience for our community. With this partnership, we will create a seamless and secure environment for users to explore the world of NFTs on the Rarible aggregated marketplace” said Deborah Won, Partner Marketing Manager.
SPACE ID (SID) is building a universal name service network to seamlessly connect people, information, assets, and applications across blockchains. It’s chain-agnostic, decentralized, censorship-resistant, and open-source. Incubated by Binance Labs, SPACE ID launched the first version of SID with .bnb Domain Name Service Public Registration in mid-September as the first Top Level Domain (TLD). In other words, SPACE ID is providing the integral identity infrastructure in the BNB Chain ecosystem.
“Supporting Brave Wallet on SPACE ID was a no-brainer. We value the privacy and security the browser brings to our community members, so letting their integrated wallet that requires no additional extension be used to register and manage .bnb domains simply made sense,” said Solo, Head of Growth at SPACE ID.
Synthetix is building a decentralized liquidity provisioning protocol for use by any other protocol. Its deep liquidity and low fees serve as a backend for many exciting protocols on both Optimism and Ethereum. Many user-facing protocols in the Synthetix Ecosystem, such as Kwenta (Spot and Futures), Lyra (Options), Polynomial (Automated Options), and 1inch and Curve (Atomic Swaps) tap into Synthetix to use its liquidity for different purposes. Synthetix is built on Optimism and Ethereum Mainnet and powers the Synthetix Ecosystem.
“Integrating Brave Wallet helps Synthetix and its ecosystem provide a great on-chain experience to new and experienced DeFi users,” said Matt, Communications Lead at Synthetix.
THORSwap is the leading decentralized exchange (DEX) and cross-chain aggregator powered by THORChain. It supports nine leading blockchains (Bitcoin, Ethereum, BNB, Cosmos, Avalanche, THORChain, Dogecoin, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash) and aggregates 5,000 ERC-20 tokens on Ethereum and Avalanche C-Chain. Fully permissionless, THORSwap enables cross-chain exchanges right from your own self-custody wallet without relying on bridges or wrapped assets.
“THORSwap believes in true decentralization and self-custodial ownership. We are honored to partner with Brave to further our shared values of privacy and safety for all. As a leading cross-chain DEX and Aggregator, THORSwap allows Brave users to swap between $BAT and 5,000+ tokens across nine major blockchains.

“We are absolutely thrilled to integrate Brave as a wallet connect option. We look forward to welcoming Brave users and are excited for them to begin their HUGE adventure in Tiny World,” said Adam, CMO at Tiny World.
VVS is the leading decentralized automated market maker (DEX) and token launchpad on Cronos, the first EVM-compatible chain built on Cosmos in partnership with Crypto.com. With VVS, users can trade most of the top 50 cryptocurrencies (which have native or wrapped representations on Cronos), and provide liquidity to the AMM to generate a return on their crypto. It’s a simplified DeFi experience for users. VVS is a DeFi platform that brings together tokens from ecosystems like Cronos, Ethereum, Cosmos, Polkadot, and others (Solana, Cardano, EOS, etc.). During the first quarter of 2022, VVS’ total value locked reached an all-time high of $1.5 billion.
