An internet browser that rewards its users with cryptocurrencies, is making its community base larger, with 20 million app downloads! The Android app, Brave, is only growing larger. Brave’s main missions are to eliminate ads, fix the internet, and not to track its users location, unlike other apps. The cryptocurrency that is rewarded to users is called “Basic Attention Token” (BAT). Recently, Google was accused of using invasive privacy policies, that breached a lot of users’ security. Brave is a potential threat to other web browsers, such as Google Chrome.
The app is calculated to be in the top 1% of all Android app downloads. This marks for a significant adoption of blockchain for people using smartphones. Brave’s team raised a whopping $36 million in just a matter of 30 seconds, during their ICO release. Even though Brave’s main purpose is not to serve as a crypto exchange, it is yet another example of an app that provides built-in crypto features.
