Privacy-focused Brave Browser is seeing tremendous growth.
In less than a month since released Brave 1.0 and made it officially available for download for Windows, macOS, Linus, Android, and ioS in 52 different languages, the company saw a “surge in user adoption.”
Brave Browser actually went from 8.7 million monthly active users in October to 10.4 million monthly active users (MAU) at the end of November, an increase of 19% across all platforms.
In just one year, while the MAU doubled, its daily active users tripled to 3.3 million.
“Huge Brave milestones as we've passed 10 million monthly active users, tripled our daily active users in the last 12 months, and our Verified creators have grown 12x over 2019. Thank you to our loyal users, and to our new users since 1.0 last month!”
Contributors to the Success
The Brave browser boasted as the “Industry’s Most Advanced Browser” combines privacy with a blockchain-based digital advertising platform. It offers 3-6x faster browsing than other browsers.
The launch of Brave 1.0 also resulted in Brave Rewards being made available on Brave iOS. As per this feature, the user earns its native currency Basic Attention Token (BAT) by viewing privacy-respecting ads and can further pay it forward to support the content creators they like.
Brave Rewards also played a part in the success of its popularity as it contributed to the app’s 27% growth in the past month.
The browser also recorded growth in its verified content creators that grew significantly to 340,000 on platforms like Twitch, YouTube, GitHub, Vimeo, Websites, and Twitter. This has been an increase of 12x from the 28,000 verified content creators at the beginning of 2019.
These Brave Verified creators have signed-up to receive Brave’s built-in token payment from their Brave using audience.
In response to this significant growth, BAT has surged 7.55% against the USD in the past 24 hours trading at $0.196, as per Coincodex. In the BTC market, the 29th largest cryptocurrency by market cap of $267 million is up by 8.04%.
