Brave browser, an open source and free web browser built on chromium announced the integration of seven new cryptocurrencies on its platform. Brave already supports its native token, Basic Attention Token [BAT], and is now working to integrate seven cryptocurrencies.
According to Brendan Eich, the co-founder and CEO of Brave software, Bitcoin [BTC], Ethereum [ETH], Litecoin [LTC], XRP, and Dash, would be available on the browser. However, two more coins are making their way alongside Bitcoin [BTC] and XRP, Bitcoin Gold [BTG] and Universal Bitcoin [UPBTC].
XRP addition to the list gives the coin a pump in its adoption with Brave browsers users. Due to its demand in the market and the current price movement, the users are rooting for alts. A prominent XRP handle on Twitter XRP Research Center tweeted:
“@brave, the free and open-source web browser built on #Chromium by @BrendanEich and Brian Bondi, is reportedly working to integrate 7 new cryptocurrencies (including #XRP) into its platform, which already supports BAT.”
This decision comes in light when @DavidShares complained about Brave not adding Bitcoin Cash [BCH]. David said:
“Finally getting around to downloading and using @Brave! It’s really cool, but now I’m highly disappointed that I can’t fund my wallet with Bitcoin Cash (BCH)! @BrendanEich can you review? I’m sure a lot of Bitcoiner’s will want to use BCH too with Brave. :))”
Brave is competing with Reborn 3, a new desktop browser released by Opera Software. Reborn 3 includes an integrated crypto wallet, unlimited VPN data, and web 3 support. Reborn’s crypto wallet enables users to store collectibles in the browser that can be synced with the Android version.
As for Opera recently joined hands with Tron foundation and was working to integrate support for TRX and TRC tokens in its browser-based crypto wallet. This would enable the users of Opera’s browsers, which is over 300 million, to use Tron within the browser. Opera had also allowed the android users to buy Ethereum [ETH] from its wallet through a partnership with Safello, a crypto brokerage firm.
The competition to best the other has begun among the browsers and as the crypto-verse develops the need for privacy-related browsers will only increase. With more cryptos in its wallet, Brave successfully overtook other browsers.
