FAQs about Brave Wallet

  • Most crypto wallets are browser extensions. These extensions have inherent security risks, and are much more susceptible to account spoofing and asset theft. Extensions also require extra CPU to run, creating performance issues on your device.

    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.

  • Yes, you need the Brave privacy browser to use Brave Wallet. Download now.
  • Yes, Brave Wallet is completely free to use. However, transactions (like sends or swaps) will require gas fees, and swaps may also include an additional transaction fee. These fees will be similar to—or the same as—other crypto wallets.
  • To get started with Brave Wallet on desktop, open the Brave Browser and click the Wallet icon icon in the toolbar. To get started with Brave Wallet on mobile, open the browser menu and then tap the Wallet icon icon.

    If you don’t see the wallet icon, first update to the latest version of Brave.

  • Brave Wallet supports all EVM compatible chains and L2s.
  • Yes. Unlike other wallets, Brave Wallet is built with an open MPL license. That means it’s open for others to use, fork, and contribute to.
  • Brave Wallet is available on desktop and mobile, with the same operating requirements as the Brave Browser.

    Note that initial versions of the Wallet on mobile may not include support for DApps or custom (EVM compatible) networks. However, we’ll be updating Wallet for mobile on a rolling basis and should have parity soon, so check back often.

    Also note that biometrics (fingerprint) to open Brave Wallet is supported on iOS, and on Android P and above.

  • For now, syncing between devices is not available for Brave Wallet. However, we hope to make syncing functionality available soon. Check back for more info.
  • 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’s previous crypto wallet was a fork of MetaMask. The new Brave Wallet is built from scratch by the Brave engineering team, and built natively into the Brave Browser.
  • 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.
  • The Brave Wallet mobile product has a “beta” tag to denote that we’re not done improving. Once it has full parity with the Brave Wallet desktop product we’ll remove the beta tag. Until then, we’re keeping the label to help users understand it’s a work in progress, and to hold ourselves accountable for achieving this parity. We hope to remove the “beta” tag from Brave Wallet mobile in the coming months.

    Note that Brave Wallet for desktop does not have this “beta” tag. However, improvements for desktop will continue as well.
