Brave and Splinterlands Announce Upcoming BAT Tournaments, Discounts When Using BAT for Land Purchases in Splinterlands, and Limited NFTs
In October of 2020, Brave announced a partnership with Splinterlands, the most popular blockchain game. Brave and Splinterlands both share a similar mission of rewarding users for their time and attention, as well as increasing their privacy on the Web.
Capitalizing on our user base and the success we have had with BAT adoption, we intend to make crypto and decentralized finance (DeFi) accessible and usable for everyone through the following efforts.
We are excited to introduce support for NFT purchases on the Brave Swag Store. The new implementation allows customers to purchase Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), such as limited-edition digital collectibles tokenized on the blockchain…
Over the past year, we have more than doubled the number of our users, going from 11.6 to 25.4 million monthly active users, and from 3.8 to 8.6 million daily active users.
Effective today, November 9th, 2020, we will begin to wind-down the current referral program. Creators using the Brave referral program have 14 days to wrap up their Brave promotional activity. Creators not using the referral program will experience no change.
November marks one year since we launched Brave 1.0, the most private, safest, and fastest (3-6x) browser. Over the past year, we’ve seen amazing growth on multiple fronts and we’re happy to celebrate Brave 1.0’s first anniversary by announcing that we officially passed 20 million monthly active users (20.5), up from 8.7 million this time last year.
Brave and Splinterlands both share a similar mission of rewarding users for their time and attention as well as increasing user privacy and freedom, and are looking forward to working together to spread those goals.
We launched the Referral Program in early 2018 with the intention of distributing $1 million in BAT to content creators who referred new users to Brave. Towards the end of 2018 we decided to extend the program another year. By the end of 2019 more than $2.2 million in BAT had been distributed to content creators.
Global Privacy Control, a new Privacy Standard Proposal, now Available in Brave’s Desktop and Android Testing Versions
As part of our privacy-in-Web-Standards work, we’re proud to have been involved in the design for the “Global Privacy Control” (GPC) proposal. The GPC proposal allows Web users to signal that they do not want to be tracked online, and where relevant, assert legal privacy rights, as described in legislation like the EU’s GDPR and California’s CCPA.
To continue our support for Tor, we wanted to make our website and browser download accessible to Tor users by creating Tor onion services for Brave websites. These services are a way to protect users’ metadata, such as their real location, and enhance the security of our already-encrypted traffic.
