Cryptocurrency-centric internet browser Brave has improved its Solana support by integrating dApps
Cryptocurrency-focused internet browser Brave has added support for Solana-based decentralized apps in its version 1.41, according to an announcement posted earlier on Tuesday.
The most recent integration in the new browser version opens the door to more accessible paths for decentralized finance and Web3.
The Solana NFT Magic Eden marketplace and the Audius cryptocurrency music app are among the most popular dApps in the Solana ecosystem.
So far, only the desktop version of the browser supports dApps integration. According to the announcement, Brave will enable support for the mobile version in the near future.
As reported by U.Today, Brave originally announced its tie-up with Solana in November, making the “Ethereum killer” its default blockchain.
In January, Brave surpassed 50 million active users. It took the web browser, which was founded by former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, about five years to reach this milestone. The main selling point of the browser is that it allows users to earn rewards by watching advertisements. The browser made it possible to collect its advertising revenue in 2019.
In his statement, Eich mentioned that Brave’s user base enjoys much lower fees thanks to the Solana integration.
As reported by U.Today, Bank of America says Solana is fully capable of chipping away at Ethereum’s market share and becoming a Visa-like investment giant.
The Basic Attention Token (BAT), the native token that underpins the browser ecosystem, currently ranks 67th in terms of market capitalization. It has fallen more than 2% in the past 24 hours.
