Open Source Blockchain Browser, Brave And Its Fork, Dissenter, At Odds: Which Team Will Prevail?

Open Source Project, Brave, And Its Fork, Dissenter, At War: Which Team Will Prevail?

It has come to our attention that an open-source browser, Brave is currently at war with its fork, Dissenter. According to news outlet, Null TX, both browsers are in a competition of sorts, especially with Dissenter wanting to replace the giveaway of BAT rewards with direct payouts in Bitcoin (Nulltx).

Brave is a project that could have potentially gained attraction due to the involvement of the Co-Founder of Mozilla, Brenda Eich. In addition, its features have been praiseworthy as well, some of which include speedier browsing, rewards for contributors and the ability prevent the pop-up of ads or to simply get rewarded for watching them. A more recent option was for its users to earn BAT (Basic Attention Tokens) for watching ads.

Null TX reports that this could be a problem because of the distribution of ads, that is, it is more tailored in specific regions. This has been disputed amongst Brave supporters. While a short-term problem, the news outlet believes that over the long-run (with popularity and success), this sort of thing is surely to disappear.

Another argument made is in relation to BAT and how giving them out as rewards can influence token value. It is expected that the BAT will primarily (and possibly only) be used for tipping and trading, Hence, it is unclear how Brave plans to give out said rewards – exclusively considering its somewhat limited uses.

As for the Dissenter team, which is led by Gab, the one thing that they disagree in relation to how Brave is structured, is the choice of token used as a reward, i.e. BAT. Those supporting this team are more in favor of earning Bitcoin, a token that has a wide range of use cases compared to the former.

What changes can be expected from Dissenter? Here’s what has been included thus far:

  • Introducing the “Free Speech App Store”
  • Integrating Bitcoin Payments powered by the Lightning Network

By the looks of it, the Dissenter team is doubtful of who Brave is targeted towards. In particular, Null TX believes that Gab’s team trusts Eich might be focusing more so on advertisers than on consumers, which is something that does not seem to set well with the new fork.
