Breakpoint 2021 was the first conference organised by the Solana Foundation, held in Lisbon, Portugal, from November 7-10. Featuring an all-star guest speaker lineup of coders, co-founders and CEOs in the business, the event brought together industry leaders, builders and innovators from around the globe.
Brendan Eich, CEO and co-founder of Brave, announced on stage with Solana CEO and founder Anatoly Yakovenko that Brave will be partnering with Solana to integrate it into the browser and make it the default for DApp support.
Solana Default For Brave Browsers
Together, the companies will bring best-in-class crypto wallet features for the Solana blockchain into Brave’s Web3 desktop and mobile browsers, to be rolled out in the first half of 2022.
We’re gonna make it so any dApp that is Solana enabled … we will make it use Solana by default. So dApp builders who built for Solana as well as other chains, in Brave it’s going to use Solana and that’s going to just help, I think, bring dApps over to Solana.Brendan Eich, CEO, Brave
