It is no secret that blockchain and cryptocurrency innovators have begun their crusade against legacy systems, taking traditional markets by storm via crypto-friendly and decentralized solutions, services and products, like the Brave Browser.
Brave Browser Sees Influx Of Growth
One such product is Brave, the flagship product of the Basic Attention Token (BAT) project, which has become the internet browser of choice for many crypto enthusiasts. For those who are unaware, the open-sourced Brave Browser is a product that intends to revolutionize how consumers use the internet as the project’s mission statement reads: “Brave is on a mission to fix the web. (It is) much more than a browser, Brave is a new way of thinking about how the web works.”
The browser’s claim to fame is its innovative system, which blocks advertisements, trackers, scripts while also giving users a chance to reward their favorite content publishers via the BAT cryptocurrency. Along with offering this revolutionary system, the crypto-friendly browser intends to make surfing the internet a breeze by making the experience upwards of 8x faster and ensuring that the security of users is a priority.
Although this is just a drop in the bucket in comparison to Google’s Chrome browser or other mainstream equivalents, these statistics go to show that cryptocurrency-related products are still seeing rampant growth and adoption even in the roughest of waves.
Latest @Brave stats: 4M users (MAU), 21K verified channels, 26K publisher accounts.
We will step on gas w/ brave-core + BAT on mobile this fall, get past 5M easily by EOY, >= 12M next, adding BAT ad deals to token grants, making good on the promise of @attentiontoken economics.

Moving forward, Eich intends to make a series of developments that will evidently bolster the growth and adoption of his brainchild. The prominent innovator and developer wrote:

Although this may sound like an overly ambitious goal, many optimists note that there is a real bull case for the Basic Attention Token and Brave projects, as Coinbase has seemingly hopped on the BAT and Brave gravy train as well. In an announcement, Coinbase revealed that it is considering the addition of BAT, along with four other prominent toxins, to its ecosystem. Although this is by no means a confirmation that BAT will be trading on Coinbase, it alludes to the fact that big names in the cryptosphere have begun to take note of this project.
At the time of writing, BAT is currently worth $0.23 a piece and is up 2.4% on the day.
