Brave Browser Update Expands Web3 Access to Solana

May 26, 2022, 9:45 AM AEST - 1 month ago

Privacy-focused browser Brave has partnered with Solana to facilitate Web3 for crypto newbies while also providing a robust suite of Web3 tools for advanced users.

Added Support for dApps

In what Brave describes as its first steps toward full integration with the Solana ecosystem, it will also offer support for Solana’s decentralised applications (dApps), allowing them to run natively within the browser.

Integration to be Completed by July

Addressing the Breakpoint conference in Lisbon, Portugal earlier this week, Brave CEO and co-founder Brendan Eich said the browser’s default support for Solana would help provide fast and affordable Web3 access and thus “pave the way for the next billion crypto users”, adding that he expected the integration process to be completed by the end of June.

The partnership brings the Solana blockchain to Brave’s 42 million monthly active users and 1.3 million verified creators. In return, Solana will implement Themis, a privacy-by-design advertising protocol considered a key milestone in the BAT 2.0 roadmap.

The BAT token powers Brave’s advertising ecosystem by allowing advertisers to purchase ad space. Last year, Brave launched its Brave Wallet, incorporating a rewards program that allows users to recoup 20 percent of their swap fees.

Over the past week, the Solana (SOL) token became the fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalisation, overtaking Cardano and stablecoin provider Tether.
