Brave integrates Solana to bring “best-in-class wallet features” to browser

The partnership aims to bring easier access to the decentralised web and Web3 services across the internet

Web browser Brave has partnered with Solana to integrate the blockchain into the Brave ecosystem and make it the default blockchain and dApps provider.

The partnership will bring “best-in-class wallet features” from the burgeoning Solana blockchain into Brave’s Web3 desktop and mobile browsers in “the first half of 2022”.

According to the announcement, Brave will integrate the Solana blockchain into the browser and provide “default Solana ecosystem support to Brave’s 42 million monthly active users and 1.3 million verified Creators”.

Additionally, Brave will also soon use Solana as the default blockchain for “cross-chain and Solana native dApps”.

Brendan Eich, CEO and co-founder of Brave and BAT, commented on how the partnership will bring more users to the “decentralised web”.

“With more and more users and creators requiring tools for fast and affordable access to the decentralised Web, this integration will seamlessly pave the way for the next billion crypto users to harness applications and tokens,” he said.

The integration will also enable the full spectrum of Solana features, including a native Solana DEX aggregator for swaps (swap within Solana network), NFT support, sending wrapped SPL tokens and account creation

Additionally, Solana will implement the Themis protocol, which is developed by Brave on the Solana Network and is a key milestone in the BAT 2.0 Roadmap.

Solana will also “encourage developers to promote BAT on dApps built on Solana and on the Solana network in general”.

The partnership was unveiled at Solana’s Breakpoint conference in Lisbon where Eich and Anatoly Yakovenko, CEO and founder of Solana Labs, discussed the future of Web3 across the internet.

Brave also mentioned that it will continue to support Ethereum, with support for additional blockchains within the Brave browser to be introduced “over time”.

Brave’s native token, BAT, saw a surge in price as it rallied by 23% to a recent high of $1.36 following the announcement. Users of Brave can earn BAT tokens by simply viewing ads and using the browser on a daily basis.
