Brave Browser Records Over 20 Million Monthly Active Users, A 135% Increase From 2019: Report
- Brave browser’s monthly active users grow over 130% in the past year.
- Verified content creators and daily active user growth are also impressive.
In a report released on Monday, the crypto-focused browser, Brave, announced the number of total monthly active users (MAUs) in October touched 20.5 million users, representing a 135.6% growth from 8.7 million MAUs registered last year. The surge is also witnessed in the daily active users, who also registered a 2.3X increase from 2019 numbers – currently at 7 million DAUs from 3 million DAUs.
Brave is a privacy-focused and crypto-rewarding browser that allows users to earn Basic Attention Tokens (BAT) for watching advertisements. Verified content creators on the browser can also directly earn from their target audience – killing off the influence of big data firms like Google on ads revenue and content creators’ fees [BEG is a proud verified content creator].
Brendan Eich, CEO and co-founder of Brave browser, states the platform targets users that are “fed up with surveillance capitalism.” Now, over 20.5 million monthly active users and a further 972,000 verified content creators (up from 300,000 in 2019) on the Web3 platform are enjoying taking “back control of their browsing experience.”
“The global privacy movement is gaining traction, and this milestone is just one more step in our journey to make privacy-by-default a standard for all Web users.”
Brave’s growth has also manifested in the number of advertisers and advertisement campaigns, partnerships, and social media community as more people move from centralized browsers like Chrome and Firefox.
Brave is an open-source Chromium-based browser, similar to Google’s Chrome. It provides users, publishers, and advertisers an interactive online space by giving users a private, safer, and faster platform. As a crypto-focused browser, it has integrated several crypto exchanges widgets directly on the platform, including Binance, BitFlyer, and Gemini, over the past few months.
