Brave Works On New Tipping Feature For Users To Tip Using BAT On Reddit And Vimeo
- Brave browser works on a tipping feature for Vimeo and Reddit
- There are many tipping services already available in the market
Brave browser is working on a new feature that would allow individuals to tip other Redditors or Vimeo accounts by using the Basic Attention Token (BAT) cryptocurrency. Reddit is one of the most popular sites around the world and it already has been integrated into different tipping services. The information was released by a team member of the Brave / BAT project on Reddit a few days ago.
Brave Works On New Tipping Feature
At the moment, Brave has not yet published an official announcement about these new features, but Reddit users have already realized that there is a new tip button on their developer versions of the web browser. Another user commented that they have also added a new tip button for Vimeo as well.
The main intention behind this implementation is to reduce content creators’ dependency on ads that tend to make the overall browsing experience slower and more uncomfortable.
The developers’ version of the web browser seems to be much less stable than the beta or main versions because it is used by developers to test out new features before they are officially released to other users.
A moderator on Brave’s subreddit confirmed the company is currently working on these new features:
“Kindly note that this is not yet on the main release of Brave, but on our Developer preview desktop build. The features in our developer preview builds make their way into our BETA and then MAIN on a 3-week development cycle, so they'll be in MAIN soon!”
He went on by saying that everyone can already begin verifying their Reddit accounts to begin receiving tips through the “creators” website Brave has. About the release date for this implementation, he explained that it is expected to be done in a few months since this is the main feature under development at this time. Users will have to link their accounts to Uphold and Brave Rewards to be able to receive funds.
Some months ago, a crypto developer released a new tipping application using Bitcoin’s Lightning Network (LN) called Tippin.me. This application was created to help users tip others on Twitter using Bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency in the market.
There are other tipping applications such as the XRPTipBot that gives users the possibility to tip others on Twitter, Reddit and Discord. In the future, the XRPTipBot could be applied to other websites.
Basic Attention Token is now the 30th digital asset in the market with a price per coin of $0.33 and a valuation of $421 million.
