The Brave privacy web browser introduced a new version, the Brave Wallet, to support the Solana blockchain and its SOL and SPL tokens. The wallet can be used to trade and hold SOL, and SPL tokens through the non-custodial payment platform Ramp.
With Ramp, users can buy crypto directly from the Brave Wallet instead of having to purchase crypto on exchanges like Coinbase and Binance, etc. Greg McEwan, the head of marketing at Ramp, said that with this integration, Brave users will be able to spend more time doing what they love, instead of going through the painful process of converting their fiat currencies to cryptocurrency.
Anatoly Yakovenko, the Co-founder of Solana, highlighted that Brave’s inclusion of Solana in the wallet is an important step on the path to onboarding a billion users to Web3. Brendan Eich, the CEO, and Co-founder of Brave, said Brave is providing integration with Solana’s blockchain so that users and developers can seamlessly transact on their fast, low-fee network. Brave is looking forward to DApp’s support in the near future to harness Solana’s growing and thriving DApp ecosystem.
Brave software’s new launch brings Web3 updates for Brave Wallet and includes the first steps for its Solana integration. It empowers users to explore Web3 with significantly lower transaction fees and faster processing times than the Ethereum network. Brave is also working towards bringing about seamless access to the thriving and growing ecosystem of decentralized apps. Brave Wallet users with the latest version 1.39 can buy, sell and store both SOL and fungible Solana tokens (SPL), as well as buy SOL and other cryptocurrencies with fiat through Ramp.
Brave has integrated Solana because it has some of the lowest gas fees and fastest performance of any blockchain. Moreover, Brave wants to expand multi-chain support and bring possibilities for all users. 1.39 brings its first set of features. It has also bridged BAT onto the Solana network, making it an SPL token that users can leverage in the Solana ecosystem.
