If you are interested in cryptocurrencies, mining farms, etc., the Brave browser should be familiar to you. It’s among the most popular Chromium-based browsers. One of the key advantages of this browser is the privacy of users. This browser automatically blocks ads and trackers. Plus, it comes with a simple UI (in a good way). Today, through XDA, we learned that it now can store and track your crypto portfolio as well.
Key Advantages Of Brave Wallet
Recently, the browser team announced a new feature namely Brave Wallet. It’s a crypto wallet, which allows users to store, manage, grow and swap their portfolio from a single wallet. That’s not difficult to guess that users can access this feature right from the Brave browser. It allows users to access Web3 decentralized apps (Dapps) and for this, you don’t have to install extensions. As they prove, “the wallet supports all EVM-compatible chains and L2 like Polygon, xDai, Avalanche, and so on.” Plus, it lets users import their wallets from MetaMask or Brave’s legacy Crypto Wallets service. You can even connect to hardware wallets like Trezor & Ledger.
In this sense, the Brave Wallet has a number of advantages. Among them, we can mention the feature that allows users to see live and historical market graphs. Another interesting feature allows us to find the best price match against a list of providers. Of course, you can send and get assets, buy with fiat via Wyre, interact with DApps for any EVM compatible network, etc. The list truly includes many useful features and allows users to manage their portfolios. However, what we liked the most is that it operates with a non-fungible token (NFT) and multi-chain support. You only have to import your wallet from MetaMask or other self-custody wallets, such as the Brave legacy Crypto Wallets extension, and manage it from the browser directly.
The team also proves that the Brave browser and the Brave Wallet are much safer than other browsers and extension-based wallets. Plus, they do not require extra background processes. This simply means they use less CPU and memory. And in its turn, this means we can use it for other purposes as well.
Note: the Brave Wallet is different from Brave Rewards, the opt-in feature that rewards Brave users with Basic Attention Tokens (BAT) for viewing privacy-protecting ads. Users can store redeemed BAT from Brave Rewards in the Brave Wallet after going through the custodial process. But there is no connection between the two features.
