FAQs about Brave Wallet

    Brave Wallet, by contrast, is browser native. With Brave Wallet, there’s much less risk of account spoofing, phishing, and other scams. It requires less CPU to operate, and is overall much more performant and reliable. Brave Wallet allows you to connect other self-custody or hardware wallets and other web3 DApps, see live market data, and manage your portfolio all in one place.

    Note that once Brave Wallet is available on Android, you’ll be able to use biometrics (fingerprint) to open Brave Wallet on Android P and above. And once it’s available on iOS, connecting DApps will be disabled until a later release.

  • Brave Rewards is tied to Brave Private Ads. Brave Browser users who opt-in to Brave Rewards will see privacy-preserving, first-party ads in certain locations as they browse. By viewing these ads, users can earn a crypto token called the Basic Attention Token (BAT).

    Brave Wallet is a tool that allows you to buy, store, send, and swap almost any crypto asset & NFT, connect other wallets and web3 DApps, and generally manage your whole crypto portfolio. You can store BAT you’ve earned through Brave Rewards in the Brave Wallet, but otherwise the two features are not connected.

  • Brave Wallet is not available as a browser extension. Brave has no plans to make a wallet extension, so if you come across one, you should consider it fraudulent and not download or install.
