Brave, the developer of a blockchain-powered Internet browser, has teamed up with leading crypto exchange Binance, in order to allow users to trade digital assets through its newly designed tab page.
The Brave browser is an open-source project that’s based on Chromium, which is also an open-source software project from Google.
Brave browser users have the option of blocking website trackers and malicious malware programs. The privacy-oriented web browser leverages distributed ledger technology (DLT) to keep track of users’ online activities in an anonymous or non-intrusive manner.
Brave has developed its own native utility token, called the Basic Attention Token (BAT). The company has also created a digital asset wallet for Ethereum (ETH).
According to a company release published on March 24, Brave said that it will be integrating the Binance widget on its new tab page. This will reportedly give users direct access to Binance and Binance.US websites.
After the widget has been added, users will be able to trade digital currencies, check their crypto wallet balances, and get deposit addresses without having to exit their browsers. Users will also be able to switch off this feature from their browser settings.
The newly developed feature is essentially a native widget that uses Binance’s API module. It ensures security as it doesn’t load any data from the exchange operator’s servers. This means that Brave browser’s users can be ensured that their privacy will be maintained.
An early iteration of this widget is currently available on Brave browser’s Nightly desktop version. The official software release is expected to launch next month.
Binance says that this integration will let users easily manage their digital assets in a more secure manner.
Changpeng Zhao, CEO at Binance, stated:
“The Binance widget on Brave’s privacy-oriented browser instills a safer way to buy and sell crypto and also reduces user friction to onboard, trade and interact with the Binance ecosystem. We are looking forward to our long-term partnership with Brave to make it even easier to interact with crypto and encourage more utility in the near future.”
