You probably know the names of the big players in the browser scene: Firefox, Chrome, Edge, and Safari.
But, for those in the know, Brave is the best browser to have on your mobile device if you want to watch YouTube videos but just despise those intrusive ads.
Recently, the privacy-centric browser announced Brave-Wallet, a browser native crypto wallet.
That means it runs on the browser without the need for extensions. But that does not mean that Brave is not supporting other wallets.
It supports all EVM compatible chains (Polygon, xDai, Avalanche, etc.) and L2s.
The Brave Wallet also allows users to connect to hardware wallets like Trezor & Ledger.
Here’s a list of things you can do with the Brave Wallet:
- See live and historical market graphs (price data powered by CoinGecko).
- Find the best price match against a list of providers with built-in swap functionality.
- Send and receive assets.
- Buy with fiat via Wyre.
- Interact with DApps for any EVM compatible network.
- Manage their portfolio — with non-fungible token (NFT) and multi-chain support
- Easily import their wallet from MetaMask and self-custody wallets, or Brave’s legacy Crypto Wallets extension, or hardware wallets such as Trezor and Ledger (no Ledger Live required).
- Send and receive NFTs.
In 2022, the Brave Wallet will integrate the Solana blockchain, making Solana the default for DApp support.
The Brave Wallet is free. Just download the Brave browser or upgrade your Brave desktop browser to version 1.32.
To get started with the Brave Wallet, open the Brave browser and click on the wallet icon in the address bar.
You can also visit brave://wallet, or click ‘wallet’ in the main browser menu, or visit the Settings page (brave://settings/) and click the Wallet tab.
