With the integration of Solana-based dApps, Brave browser users stand to benefit from much lower transaction fees among other things.
Crypto-based Brave browser is launching some amazing new features in its recently-updated version 1.41, most notably, the support for Solana-based decentralized applications (dApps).
Brave Browser Keen on Boosting DeFi Accessibility
According to the announcement, this integration will, by all means, help bring ease of access to decentralized finance (DeFi) and Web3.0. It will achieve this by facilitating faster transactions that will come at comparably low fees. The statement read in part:
“Our mission with Brave Wallet is about much more than holding and transacting crypto; we aim to create the user-first gateway to an easy-to-use Web3, for anyone, on any device.”
But as of press time, only the web version of the browser supports the dApps integration. Brave will, however, roll out the mobile version in the coming months.
The collaboration between Brave and Solana was first announced last November. This was when the browser made Solana its default blockchain. However, Brave has since gone on to become a very huge platform, boasting of well over 62 million active users to its name.
It is also notable that Solana itself is a very big deal, and now with the integration of its dApps, Brave browser users stand to benefit from much lower fees among other things. Some of Solana’s popular dApps include Magic Eden – the NFT marketplace, and crypto music app Audius.
So, whether users are earning tokens via STEPN, or partnering on projects with Squads, there’s now a wide array of DeFi options to choose from.
Interestingly, developers are not left out of the benefits of the new Brave browser version 1.41 upgrade. Per the announcement, developers may now build Solana DApps to cater to the huge number of users on the platform.
While it promises to add support for more blockchains in the near future, Brave continues to look for avenues to offer its community more access and control. However, not without paying much attention to security and privacy.
Interestingly, the native token of the browser’s ecosystem, is reacting excitedly to the integration news. Basic Attention Token (BAT), is up 1.44% in the last 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap data. And the token currently ranks 67th by market capitalization.
