It is expected that the native cryptocurrency of the browser, the basic attention token (BAT), will give its hodlers advantages such as:
- Discounts when utilizing BAT for paying transaction fees.
- Discounts for users that hold BAT balances in their wallet.
- Multi-chain support with many assets and blockchains.
Besides, the company will also redesign the Brave Wallet and add support for fiat payment with credit/debit cards, bank accounts, and smartphone wallets. Brave's announcement comes after a few days after a bug in the ad blocking component of Brave’s Tor feature had been identified. The bug caused a leak of the .onion URLs for websites visited by the browser’s users.
In June 2020, the browser was accused of unauthorized actions. According to a Twitter user @cryptonator1337, the browser autofilled binance.us link with a referral code without the knowledge of a user.
Brave CEO and Co-Founder Brendan Eich said the company made a mistake, but highlighted that since the company behind the browser is a Binance affiliate, it referred users via the opt-in trading widget on the new tab page.
