Brave, Binance unite their passion for cryptocurrencies. The new application which is built into the Brave browser will allow Binancians to log in to the account, send, receive, swap cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and so on.
If you don’t have Binance account, the applet can be deleted and re-added on each new tab via browser’s Settings. Brave browser partners with Binance to allow users to send and receive coins via exchange in each new Browser tab.
With the new update, Brave developers have introduced a new applet that directly integrates Binance exchange with your tab. In the U.S., the applet will automatically integrate with Binance.US, and Binance.com will work for you in other countries.
Official Release in April but Binance Fans Can Download Beta
If the user will not touch the applet, it will not download anything from the remote servers. But if you use it to log in to the Binance account, the applet will serve as intended. You will have direct access to the addresses, balance, Bitcoin or BNB price and so on. The buttons like Deposit, Convert and Buy talk for themselves. The developers will add more of different cryptocurrencies to the applet over time.
However, the recently added Binance applet can be easily disabled. If you think you won’t need cryptocurrency on the exchange, simply turn the thing off in Settings. The applet is already accessible via the beta Nightly release of the Browser. But, if you want to wait till the official version, it will see light somewhere in April. Keep in mind that unfinished code in applications working with cryptocurrencies can bring you to losing your money.
Brave Received Criticism from Crypto Community
Brave is the browser that lets you donate cryptocurrencies to the websites you visit in automated mode. It also gives users its native BAT token in case they want to see the approved ads. Since the early days of its inception, it allowed users to send Bitcoin micropayments as donations to sites like Coindesk, CNN and TechCrunch. But one of them has substantial VC funding from Barry Silbert.
He has tons of cryptocurrency, it is unclear why poor bitcoiners should donate. Despite Brave has created a cool infrastructure for donations to journalism, keep in mind that you don’t have to invest in Venture Capital-backed websites. Especially when they are backed by the crypto millionaires.
Brave also allows integration with Twitter, so that you could send donations to your favorite crypto observers or market whales. Again, it is not clear how can you dare to tip those greedy mercenaries. Who may enjoy thousands of dollars in revenue? But if you want – Brave gives you such an opportunity, and maybe you’ll find one or two people who are worth donating.
