Privacy-focused browser Brave has made an April 30 announcement that it has integrated the Binance widget into all their desktop offerings.
This integration enables millions of people across the globe to seamlessly trade and manage #crypto, all without leaving their browser.

Brave users can now exchange Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC) and all the other cryptocurrencies supported on Binance through their browser. More than this, they get to enjoy many other functions such as buying, trading, depositing and checking summaries, all without having to use other apps.
The Widget Enabled by Default
The same announcement from April 30 says the Binance widget is already enabled by default. This means the millions desktop users of Brave are going to hear about the crypto exchange Binance if they haven’t until now. In the past, the same widget was available in Brave Beta and Brave Nightly, also only for testing.
Now, all Brave users who open a new window or tab in the browser are going to be introduced to Binance and the Brave crypto rewards widget that’s on the page’s right side. After, they will be prompted to connect their Binance account with the widget. After authentication, they will be able to view the assets they’re holding and to trade straight from the browser.
Security and Mobile Versions
Since the widget is built straight into the browser, it preserves the users’ privacy by communicating with the Binance API via authenticated interaction only. Obviously, the widget can be disconnected, which means the browser would no longer interact with the users’ Binance account until the authentication process would get to happen again. Even if enabled by default, the widget can still be manually hidden.
At the moment, Brave has more than 13.5 million users who are active every month across all platforms. The Binance widget is for now integrated into the desktop Mac, Windows and Linux desktop versions of the browser, but it has been announced to have its iOS and Android mobile apps later this year.
Binance said the integration with Brave is another step in encouraging the adoption of cryptocurrency. Neither of the two companies revealed anything about the business the partnership between them will bring. You can try using the Brave Privacy Browser here.
