Brave browser has been making waves which by many was totally unexpected, their internet browser has proven to be fast, reliable and most important rewarding. Brave grew to 5.5 million active users in January this year with the figure now way more than that, this includes over 28000 verified publishers and growing use via Youtube and Twitch
The most impressive for me this year was the new partnerships announced, they werent no little partnerships all of them brought big names to the table
Dow Jones Media Group, Townsquare, Baker/DeFranco
We partnered with Dow Jones Media Group to bring premium content to new audiences and to test blockchain technology usage in digital publishing. We also partnered with Townsquare Media to monetize ad-blocking traffic and test digital advertising solutions with the BAT platform, as well as prominent YouTubers Bart Baker and Philip DeFranco to spread awareness about Brave and BAT to their audiences.
Qwant, the European search engine that respects the privacy of its users, is now our default search engine in France and Germany.
We expanded our relationship with DuckDuckGo to feature them across all our platforms in our Private Windows search.
Brave will be the default browser on the HTC Exodus, the world’s first native blockchain phone dedicated to decentralized applications.
We joined the AdLedger blockchain consortium alongside Publicis, Omnicom, IPG Reprise Digital, GroupM, MadHive, Coindesk, Meredith, TEGNA, and IBM in order to reform the future of digital advertising.
We’re working with Civic to provide identity verification and other Know Your Customer (KYC) services to our Verified publishers, so that they will be able to securely receive earned BATs directly into their own Ethereum addresses.
Privacy has always been the key and now with the release of brave ads this furthers the popularity of non intrusive adverts, the company is very much continuing to rise.
