Jimmy Donaldson, or more popularly known as Mr. Beast by his 50.2 million YouTube subscribers, is the owner of a verified Brave browser account now. With that, he has signed up to receive BAT, the native Brave token from his Brave browser-using followers. Sometime back, he earned himself the title of YouTube’s biggest philanthropist for his massive giveaway videos. Now that Donaldson is a verified Brave browser account holder, he might also offer BAT tokens in his giveaway videos, thereby exposing his millions of followers to cryptocurrency.
Brave is a free and open-source browser with over 15 million monthly active users. It blocks invasive ads and trackers. As a result, users experience private browsing that is safer and faster. Furthermore, in November 2020, Brave witnessed enormous growth in its active monthly users. The number of monthly active users exhibited a 2.3x growth in the last year and has crossed 20 million. With its growing popularity, Brave has hosted over 2,215 ad campaigns for some of the top enterprises like Amazon, Intel, Verizon, PayPal, and more.

This is not Donaldson’s first stint with crypto. Many sources claim that some time back he was heavily invested in Bitcoin and made a fortune out of it. As a matter of fact, he had posted a substantial amount of content related to cryptocurrency, which he purged later on. It seems that the Bitcoin and altcoin rally enticed Donaldson to make a turn back into crypto. Interestingly, this will prove out to be beneficial for Donaldson’s and Brave’s popularity.
The news has been positively received by the community, and the BAT token is up 14.2% in the last 24 hours. Moreover, at the time of press, BAT price is $0.277.
