- The blockchain-based Brave browser is seeing increasing adoption and has surpassed 10 million active users per month
The number of people who actively use the Brave browser has grown from 8.7 million in October to 10.4 million in November, an increase of 19%. Further, the Brave browser has seen consistent growth all year, with the number of monthly active users rising 100%, and the number of daily active users rising 200%.
The Brave browser integrates a blockchain-based advertising platform that utilizes the Basic Attention Token (BAT) cryptocurrency. BAT cuts out the middlemen, allowing advertisers to directly pay content creators. The number of content creators that use the Brave browser has risen to 340,000, up from 28,000 at the beginning of the year. Also, users of the Brave browser receive BAT every time they see an ad, making it an easy way to earn a passive income simply by browsing the Internet.
This new data indicates that the Brave browser and its integrated blockchain-based advertising system has a chance to compete with mainstream internet browsers and advertising platforms long term. Apparently, the ability to earn a passive cryptocurrency income when using the Brave browser is giving Brave a competitive edge.
