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).
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.
At Brave, we want to make crypto usable and defi accessible for everyone, and towards that end we are excited to share the progress we have made since we published the BAT Roadmap 2.0 in February 2021.
Basic Attention Token (BAT) is now also available on Binance Smart Chain (BSC) as wrapped BAT. BAT holders can use numerous bridges that connect Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain to participate in the DeFi ecosystem on BSC.
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.
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…
THEMISv2 allows users to request updates and validate their rewards state in a private and unlinkable way. Users can also calculate the rewards they should receive, and submit proofs of correctness to Brave and other participants in the protocol.
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.
