Browsers focused on cryptocurrencies

Let us remember that Brave part of a proposal to reward the users, content creators and advertisers with cryptocurrencies, as part of a system of advertising on the internet. So, Brave uses its own token, BAT, for that system.After its creation, in 2016, the Brave has been reinforcing its system with the addition of a purse of cryptocurrencies, much like Metamask. But it was not until November of 2019, which was announced finally the launch of the first stable release of Brave, the 1.0.To the extent that there has been a growing ecosystem of cryptocurrencies, other browsers on the market have been paying attention equally to their development. Already in 2018, Opera had a built-in wallet Ethereum. Then enabled the purchase of cryptocurrencies in its mobile version and access to decentralized applications (dApps) on your desktop browser.In that vein, the social network Gab announced in 2019 that it planned to launch its own browser based on Brave. The intention of this fork is to keep the rewards system, eliminating the use of the token BAT and replacing it with bitcoin, via the network of payment channels Lightning Network.
