Blockchain Browser Brave Tests Crypto Tips for Twitter Users

Blockchain browser Brave is testing a new tipping function for social media platform Twitter on its Nightly version.

Blockchain browser Brave is testing a new tipping function for social media platform Twitter on its Nightly version, it announced in a tweet on May 23.

The post reads that users of Brave Nightly — the testing and development version of blockchain-based browser that blocks ads and website trackers — will have access to the browser’s new feature for tipping tweets with the Brave Rewards program. The feature is designed to award content creators with Brave native digital tokens, basic attention tokens (BAT).

A related announcement on the project’s website provides a detailed explanation of the tipping feature:

“When you visit Twitter in the Brave Browser for desktop, you will see a special tip button on each tweet. Tap on a tip button to send a tip directly to the author of the tweet. Tips are sent instantly and appear in their Brave Rewards account within minutes.”

Brave Rewards also allows users to tip creators on video-sharing website YouTube while watching their videos.

In late April, Brave launched Brave Ads, an option that enables its users to earn rewards for watching advertising. The option allows the browser’s users to receive 70% of the ad revenue share as a reward for their attention in the form of BATs. Brave Ads purportedly ensures that brands are connecting with people who are interested in advertising, eliminating costs, and risks regarding privacy, security, and fraud.

As reported last December, Brave became the default browser on a phone from major smartphone manufacturer HTC, and will reportedly be pre-installed on the HTC Exodus 1, “the first native blockchain phone” with support for multiple blockchains, including The Bitcoin and Ethereum networks.

At press time, BAT is trading at $0.347, having gained 2.22% over the past 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap. The token’s current market capitalization is around $439 million, while its daily trading volume is around $53.6 million.
