Brave Adds Gemini Trading Widget; Privacy-Focused Users Can Buy Crypto Directly In the Browser
Brave browser has added a Gemini Trading Widget to its main interface, a move that will allow the users of this privacy-focused browser to access Gemini’s crypto listings without a hustle. According to the announcement by Brave, their partnership with Gemini is a significant step in making crypto purchases, sales, storage, and rewards more interactive at a basic level.
Notably, Gemini’s Trading Widget is not the first to be integrated with Brave; the browser had already featured a Binance Widget that has been functional since April.
A Brave Opportunity in Crypto!
Following a successful pitch based on privacy, Brave has been on the rise, with its number of active users increasing every quarter since the start of 2020. The latest stats from June show a monthly active usage of 15 million while daily active users stood at 5.3 million. Interestingly, this browser is also crypto-friendly and runs its own token-based ‘BAT’ reward ecosystem for viewing ‘privacy ads.’
The addition of Gemini’s Trading Widget, which was originally testest on the Nightly version, comes as no surprise to the crypto community, given the crypto exchange listed BAT tokens a few months ago. This widget is pretty seamless and accessible on Brave’s opening tab; users just need to connect to their Gemini accounts, after which they can use Gemini’s card on the Brave interface to initiate trades and manage their accounts as well.
Other than crypto trading activities, the collaboration will enable Brave-verified content creators to leverage Gemini’s content creator wallet to custody their BAT rewards.
“That means Brave creators can receive their BAT payments into their Gemini Creator Wallet, or in any other fiat or crypto asset supported on Gemini’s Exchange.” Reads the blog.
While the integration with crypto networks seems to be going smoothly, Brave has encountered its fair share of challenges with a recent call out for profiting from affiliate company links. The company’s CEO, Brendan Eich, however, apologized and reassured Brave users that they would no longer alter links automatically.
