Brave browser, an open-source internet browser created by Brave Software, will soon enable users to tip on Reddit and Vimeo using the native Brave cryptocurrency.
The addition of tipping on the social media platform Reddit and video sharing platform Vimeo with Basic Attention Token (BAT), the native currency of Brave Browser, is yet another big use-case for the cryptocurrency.
Although on official statement from Brave Software has not yet been given, Reddit users found the options for “tip” buttons on their Vimeo and Reddit feeds in the developers version for desktops. The developer version is less stable the beta or main versions and mainly used to test out new features before they are being rolled out to new users.
A moderator on Brave’s subreddit confirmed that the tip buttons for Vimeo and Reddit are currently being tested by Brave Software:
“The features in our developer preview build make their way into our BETA and then MAIN on a 3-week development cycle, so they’ll be in MAIN soon.”
Brave blocks malvertisements and trackers. Furthermore, the browser contains a ledger system that anonymously captures user attention to accurately reward publishers. With the browser users are rewarded for their contents.
