Brave Browser, an open-source web browser based on the Chromium web browser, and its utility token, BAT has been making headlines with updates pertaining to the project’s development and the token’s price surge.
The CEO and co-founder, Brendan Eich tweeted at a software engineer at Ethereum regarding the integration of Web3 for the browser. The ETH software engineer, @cburgdof tweeted:
Burgdorf suggested an integration of Web3, which is a lightweight Java and Android library for integration with Ethereum clients. According to GitHub, web3j is a lightweight, highly modular, reactive, type-safe Java and Android library for working with Smart Contracts and integrating with clients (nodes) on the Ethereum network.
The Web3 integration allows users to work with the Ethereum blockchain, without the additional overhead of having to write one’s own integration code for the platform.
The CEO tweeted:
Moreover, Brave has been seeing massive adoptions due to its unique utility. According to reports, Google Play Store saw a huge number of Brave Browser downloads following the launch of the ad-revenue program. Over the past three months, Brave crossed Chrome to become the second-most-popular app. However, in May, it lost its position and settled for the third position. Following Brave Browser on the fourth position, was the Opera browser with an inbuilt VPN.
BAT, which is obtained as rewards for the users that use Brave, was ranking 25th on CoinMarketCap and was priced at $0.36. The token has maintained consistency in price over the last seven days, however, it was down by 0.04%, at press time.
