Splinterlands and Brave Announce Partnership
Splinterlands, the most played game on blockchain, and Brave, makers of the innovative Brave browser which combines privacy with the BAT (Basic Attention Token) blockchain-based digital advertising platform, are excited to announce a new partnership. 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.
Going forward, the Brave browser will be the official browser of Splinterlands. The companies will educate players about the many benefits that the Brave browser provides and strongly encourage that all players use it not only to play Splinterlands, but for all of their Web browsing needs.
Additionally, Splinterlands will allow users to spend their BAT (Basic Attention Tokens) directly in the game to purchase Credits, which can be used to buy booster packs and other items in the shop or to buy cards from other players on the market. Players using the Brave browser can opt in to view privacy-preserving ads and in turn be rewarded in BAT via Brave Rewards, which they can then redeem in Splinterlands!
Brave will also begin promoting Splinterlands to their audience of over 19 million monthly active users through their various advertising and promotional channels. Splinterlands looks forward to welcoming the Brave community to a rich world of magic and mayhem and introducing them to the fun and rewarding experience of blockchain-based gaming!
Built-In Crypto Wallet
The Brave browser features a built-in Crypto Wallet for transacting directly with the Ethereum blockchain. You can import your existing Ethereum wallets, connect a Ledger or Trezor hardware wallet, or create a new wallet right in the browser to interact directly with Splinterlands.
Splinterlands players can use the Brave Crypto Wallet to log in to the game, make payments with ETH or other Ethereum-based tokens, and even manage their wrapped Dark Energy Crystal (DEC) token balances in order to participate in the recently launched ETH-DEC Uniswap pool which offers some amazing rewards to liquidity providers!

Brave Search beta now available in Brave browser, offering users the first independent privacy search/browser alternative to big tech
Starting today, users have a new independent option for search which gives them unmatched privacy. Brave Search is built on top of a completely independent index, and doesn’t track users, their searches, or their clicks.
We propose a new privacy-first framework to solve recommendation by integrating federated learning with differential privacy. This work on private federated recommendation is only one example of how we intend to leverage federated learning with privacy on the Brave browser in the future.
