Brave partners with Transak to expand crypto purchases globally in Brave Wallet, with over 50 new assets and multiple payment methods
Today we’re happy to announce a new partnership with Transak, whose developer integration toolkit will enable the purchase of crypto assets directly within Brave Wallet. Transak offers Brave Wallet users access to over 50 new tokens across Ethereum, BNB Chain, Polygon, Optimism, and Arbitrum—giving self-custodial wallet users more options to buy and deposit their preferred tokens.
“We’re excited to be integrating Transak to Brave Wallet to give our users more choice in what crypto they buy and how they choose to buy it,” said Brian Bondy, co-founder and CTO at Brave.
“Brave browser has always been on the forefront of supporting Web3 and is enabling so many users to securely interact with the ecosystem. Therefore, we are very proud to be supporting Brave Wallet in its mission to onboard more and more users to Web3. Our integration will enable these users to easily buy crypto via their locally supported payment methods and deposit directly to their Brave Wallet,” said Sami Start, CEO & Co-founder of Transak.
In addition to Visa and Mastercard, Transak offers a wide variety of payment methods—Apple Pay, Google Pay, UPI, Mobi Kwik, AstroPay, and Maya—which greatly expands coverage to more customers around the world. For a full list of payment options by region, see Transak’s documentation, and for a guide on how to buy crypto with Brave Wallet, check out Brave’s support center.

Brave Wallet enables Brave users to store, manage, grow, and swap their crypto portfolio across multiple blockchains from a single wallet. Unlike most crypto wallets, Brave Wallet is browser-native, meaning it doesn’t require any additional downloads or extensions, helping reduce security risks and reliance on extra CPU and memory. Users can transact with thousands of crypto assets with superior safety and performance, as well as connect with other wallets and Web3 DApps.
