The open-source pay-to-surf browser, Brave, will soon have its signature token be given more trading options and will be done through Gemini.
Adding Number 6 To Gemini’s Token List
Through a blog post done on the 6th of April, 2020, from Gemini’s own website, the platform made the announcement. The company stated that it would soon integrate support for the Brave platform’s token, the Basic Attention Token. With these integrations, users will be capable of depositing their BAT into their respective Gemini accounts. The integration will be enacted on the 24th of April, 2020, and it’s said that trading will begin shortly after that.
Through the statement, Gemini noted that BAT would stand as the sixth digital asset that its platform made available to the public at large. The BAT will stand alongside things like Ether (ETH), Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BTC), Zcash (ZEC), and Litecoin (LTC). Gemini stated that it’s planning to offer trading pairs with the BAT alongside the USD, the ETH, and the BTC. These pairs will be on both Gemini’s automated block trading system, as well as its continuous order book.
Some Silver Linings To Those In The Right Places
Usually, the BAT coins can be earned through the participation of specific activities on the browser itself. An example of this would be to opt to view ads that Brave typically blocks from the platform.
With a majority of the world itself now starting to try and limit the exposure of COVID-19 to its people through the use of quarantine measures, Brave itself has seen a significant spike when it comes to the number of users it has. Des Martin, the Head of Marketing at Brave, reported on the 1st of April, 2020.
Within this report, Martin revealed that more than a million new users have logged on to the browser in March alone. It seems that, while many are suffering, there is still some good to be gleaned for a select few in this time of crisis, however small that may be.
Privacy Focused Offering
An essential facet to the overall success of Brave as a whole is the platform’s devotion to the privacy of its respective users. The browser touts itself as a privacy-oriented rival to the likes of Google Chrome, with the efforts of the browser focusing on the protection of individual data.
Between 2018 and 2019, the number of users on the platform has doubled, with the BAT being almost as popular as the platform itself for the users. The browser platform managed to sell as much as $35 million in BAT within less than a minute of time when the company first made the Initial Coin Offering, or ICO, back in 2017.
