Brave Web Browser to Release Native Reddit and Vimeo Tipping With Virtual Currencies

Brave is currently working on a new feature that would allow individuals to tip other users on Reddit and Vimeo using the BAT cryptocurrency. There are also other solutions that help users tip on Twitter, Reddit and Discord and include other digital assets such as Bitcoin or XRP.

  • Brave is working on new features to allow users tip creators on Reddit and Vimeo
  • There are other services that offer similar solutions on Twitter, Reddit and Discord

Brave decided to introduce a new feature that would allow users to tip other content creators on Reddit and Vimeo. Individuals will have the possibility to send these tips using Basic Attention Token (BAT).

Although these features are currently being tested in Brave’s Developer on desktop, they may be released to the market in the near future. This is according to what a company representative said on Reddit.

Tipping Using BAT Tokens

Brave is currently working in order to allow its users to tip other content creators using the Basic Attention Token currency that was developed by Brave to use on its web browser. The web browser was found by Brendan Eich, which is the current CEO of the company, and Brian Bondy, Brave’s CTO.

The firm is now working on this new feature that has not been officially announced but it has been added to Reddit and Vimeo feeds. As reported by a moderator for the Brave Reddit community, the company is testing these features for both platforms.

About it, the company representative commented:

“The features in our developer preview build make their way into our BETA and then MAIN on a 3-week development cycle, so they’ll be in MAIN soon!”

The new implementation is expected to be rolled out in some months rather than a few weeks, as many users would expect. However, users can already begin verifying their Reddit and Vimeo accounts to receive tips in beta. In addition to it, Brave is also testing a new feature that would allow users to tip some tweets.

The main goal behind these tips is to help creators reduce their dependency on ads. Moreover, this is only available for Brave Nightly, a testing development version of the web browser.

Furthermore, Brave is competing with Reborn 3, a desktop web browser that was released by Opera Software and that has an integrated crypto wallet, unlimited VPN data and also web 3 support. In addition to it, the wallet that is integrated to Reborn enables users to store collectibles in the browser that can also be synchronized with the Android version of the wallet.

At the moment, there are other tipping options for users on Twitter, Reddit and Discord. Users can send XRP tips to individuals in these platforms by adding a comment. Moreover, Tippin released a new service that allows individuals to send Bitcoin through the Lightning Network (LN) on Twitter and became very popular earlier this year when it was embraced by the CEO of Twitter Jack Dorsey.

Basic Attention Token is currently the 31st largest cryptocurrency in the market with a valuation of $390 million and a price per coin of $0.306.
