The Brave browser, an open-source internet browser created by Brave Software Inc., has now been downloaded over 10 million times from Google’s Play Store. A giant milestone for the Brave Browser, which hasn’t been very popular till Coinbase announced it was exploring the options to add Basic Attention Token (BAT) to its trading platform. Brave Browser rewards users with BAT, making it fairly different than other available browsers like Chrome and Safari.
The news of 10 Million downloads is impressive since it is a significant increase from the month of July, where the company had reported 3.1 million active users. The Android version of the browser is currently ranked in the Top 10 “Free Communication Apps” in 20 different countries, including US and Canada.
The news of Brave crossing 10 Million downloads was announced on their official Twitter account.

According to Brendan Eich:
“The Brave browser knows where users spend their time, making it the perfect tool to calculate and reward publishers with BATs. This service creates a transparent and efficient Blockchain-based digital advertising market.”
Through the browser, publishers are rewarded with more revenue because middlemen and fraud are reduced. Those who use the browser are served with fewer but better-targeted ads devoid of malware, while advertisers receive better data on their spending.
At the time of writing, Basic Attention Token (BAT) is trading at a price of $0,22 on CoinMarketCap.
