This new update will allow users to use other cryptocurrency wallets with the Brave BAT token, channeling transactions through Uphold.

The Brave browser is adding new crypto native wallet features to Brave Nightly, its trial version. The news was recently shared on the official Brave subreddit, in which support for crypto native wallets in Brave Nightly was announced.

Brave Nightly is a development and test version of the official Brave browser. The update now allows other cryptocurrency wallets to be used with the Brave BAT token and all transactions are channeled through Uphold, the Brave wallet partner that works with the “Know Your Customer” (KYC) requirement.

KYC Priority

The Coindesk news outlet ensures that the lack of support for other Ethereum wallets such as MetaMask or MyEtherWallet is a common complaint in the Brave community since the launch of the token. However, he mentions, this “problem” was intentional, since Brave wanted the tips for content creation to become more popular, encouraging users to come up with new material. Now, there seems to be some inconvenience regarding the KYC data that Uphold handles.

In this regard, Brave co-founder and CEO Brendan Eich told the source that concerns about KYC remain a priority due to regulatory concerns. He added:

“Brave cannot allow fraud robots with Ledgers or Trezors to scam us, and we have to avoid going to jail if any Foreign Assets Office eliminates BAT”

Eigh said the best proof of commitment would be growth figures and new users for the platform.

Dispelling doubts

When in doubt, Eich said Brave added support for peer wallets, not to evade regulators, but to drive the community forward. Adding wallet support helps adoption while keeping Brave’s name clean. On the matter, Eich emphasized:

“We have no illusions that crypto is not for most users. We want users who can use it to have crypto wallets built into Brave.”

Brave Browser

The Brave browser is a tireless project working towards building a totally different and decentralized browsing experience. That being the case, this will not be the only news we will see in the future.

Currently, as we browse websites we are loading ads in which we sometimes click even by mistake. This constant interference with advertising is transformed thanks to Brave. The user can decide not to see any more advertising or to charge for the advertising they want to see.

Recently, Brave added support for sending tips to content creators via Twitter. The measure seeks to promote the creation of quality content, allowing people to remunerate the author through the social network.

The project is mainly based on showing advertising related to your interests. In addition, in this new system, not only does the user win, who had never been charged to see advertising before, but also the medium or support, be it a blog or news website, will receive a good portion of BATs.

In the absence of an intermediary (as in most campaigns in which there is always a middleman in the form of an advertising platform) the money that brands invest in their campaigns in Brave will be distributed, for the most part, between user and support.
