Brave provides standard support for Solana
A popular privacy-conscious browser, Brave has partnered with Solana to provide support for its decentralized applications (dApps). Thanks to the integration, Solana dApps can be run natively in the browser, announced the Brave team on Monday at the Breakpoint conference in Lisbon.
So far, Brave has only offered support for browser-based cryptocurrency wallets and DEX aggregators from Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain (BSC). The team will now add Solana to the supported networks as part of its multi-chain strategy.
Brendan Eich, CEO and Co-Founder of Brave Software, spoke about the various technical changes the team is making to the web browser to support Solana dApps.
Solana, a high-performance blockchain, has seen rapid growth over the past year and has become a notable competitor in the Layer 1 race. “Brave adds support for Solana account creation, key management, transaction creation and signing, and support for Solana’s JSON-RPC APIs,” Eich told Crypto Briefing.
According to Eich, the standard support for Solana will help to enable quick and inexpensive access to the decentralized web and thus “pave the way for the next billion crypto users”. The integration with Solana will be completed in the first half of 2022.
Brave Browser is widespread in the crypto community as it offers a privacy-centric alternative to Google Chrome. The browser also rewards users with Basic Attention Token (BAT) for viewing anonymized ads. The BAT token, in turn, supports Brave’s advertising ecosystem by allowing advertisers to purchase advertising space.
The latest partnership opens the Solana blockchain to Brave’s 42 million monthly active users and 1.3 million verified creators. In return, Solana will also implement Themis, a privacy-by-design advertising protocol, on its network. Themis is considered an important milestone in the BAT 2.0 roadmap.
Meanwhile, the Solana (SOL) token recently became the fourth largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, overtaking Cardano and stablecoin provider Tether last week.
